Emmy-winning actor Jim Parsons of the television series “Big Bang Theory” hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the first time and did a great parody of Johnny Weir.
Parsons started his monologue with a little musical number about being different than his on-screen character, Dr. Sheldon Cooper.
The actor jokingly did a song with the lyrics, “I’m not that guy. I’m a well-adjusted man, not a Star Trek superfan/I’m much more than that geek who’s on your screen 12 times a week.”
Jim Parsons did an awesome parody of figure skater Johnny Weir in the show’s opening skit where he was a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Parson wore a flamboyant pink jacket and leather pants and a statement necklace, joking about Weir’s trip to Sochi, Russia.
SNL star Kate McKinnon played Ellen DeGeneres and said to Parsons (as Weir), “I feel like every time I see you, you’re wearing something new and crazy”.
“Can you believe all this was in Russia?” he asks Ellen.
“Did you have a hard time over there?” she asks.
“Oh no, I just sort of blended in. By the end, I looked like a local … It was like a gay Where’s Waldo?”
Where did he get his fashion sense? “From my parents. My mother is a school teacher and my father is a Christmas ornament.”
The camera would pan back to Parsons as he would have a slight wardrobe addition.
Jim also played Peter Pan and creepy serial murderer Mark Alan Henry, aka the Dance Floor Killer profiled on Investigation Discovery’s The Killer Files.
