Jim Parsons needs to play the Emcee in Cabaret. Perhaps once these live musicals shown on tv get tired of all the family shows, one of them would produce Cabaret. Or there's really no reason that HBO couldn't do one and capitalize on Parson's participation in The Normal Heart.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I would have happily seen him in the Zach Braff role in Bullets Over Broadway.

He showed a lovely baritone off in The Muppets.

He could totally do it. His strange boyishness would be perfect.

No...however....I can totally see Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) as Gertrude in Seussical, she literally has the perfect character voice for it.

You need sex appeal to play the Emcee. Jim Parsons has zero.

I could see him as Man-in-Chair in Drowsy Chaperone.

I agree with others and don't see him in that role. Saw him in "The Normal Heart" with my daughter and he was good and very nice signing Playbill's at stage door.

"Joel Gray had sex appeal?"

Someone thought so at the time. He has more than one album cover where he's not wearing a shirt.

Parsons is an actor, and a very fine one. This notion he cannot act "sexy" because he currently has played characters who are not is wrong-headed. Beyond that, the notion that there is only one way to play this role is ridiculous, even in light of the two iconic performances we have available.

He has a classical training from USD, so why not one of the Shakespearian clowns?
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

I think he would have been a far out of left field choice in a staging that more closely resembles the original Hal Prince production (as well as that original script). As the show currently stands, with what audiences expect to see and the changes in tone that the script has taken as it has evolved I just don't see anything that he has done that would suggest he would be someone to consider.

"He has a classical training from USD, so why not one of the Shakespearian clowns?"

I actually think that he would do quite wonderfully in one of those roles.

PRS, no matter how much you stalk me, I'm just not that into you.

PRS, you don't need to feel ashamed or repressed. I'm sure you get turned down all the time. But still, you might want to visit a therapist just to be sure you're okay with it.

I'm not shamed or repressed. But I'm also not someone trying to pass myself off as straight while I work in the gayest references I can find into every thread I post in.

Okay, now you're confusing gay and camp. Or gay and queer. Or something. Source: MA level certification in Women, Gender and Queer Studies.

Really, what you're doing is throwing around passive-aggressive homophobia, which both gay people AND straight allies can see right through.
