Jim Parsons of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ to Play God on Broadway


Jim Parsons, also known as Shelton Cooper in The Big Bang Theory, has been cast to play God in a new Broadway play called “An Act of God,” which is based on David Javerbaum’s 2011 book, The Last Testament: A Memoir By God.

“An Act of God” was written by @TheTweetOfGod twitter user who has almost 2 million followers and sets out to answer questions we never really know the answer to. And while the comedic play is full of satire and irony (Parsons is openly gay – no judgement zone!), Javerbaum told the New York Daily News that it was not meant to “undercut” God.

Catch it on Broadway at Studio 54 now through August 2.
