Jim Parsons takes ‘Big Bang Theory’ Mini-Me to the Broadway Show


Actor Jim Parsons is clearly impressed with the casting of the kid who will play his Big Bang Theory character as a nine-year-old – he took him to the theater.

Child star Iain Armitage will play the young Sheldon Cooper in a TV spin-off series, and Parsons welcomed the newcomer to the family by treating him to a night out on Broadway.

Jim took Iain to check out the hit musical Come From Away and shared the experience with fans on Instagram.

What a great time: saw the fantastic @wecomefromaway with the equally fantastic @iainlovestheatre 🎭👍
