Shocking Jim Parsons truths revealed after Emmy win
For example: "I'm a big reader of almanacs, or I was, and I like lists -- oh, I sound a bit OCD, don't I?"
"The nerd will dance out," he says, when he mixes his character's "genius" thing with the writers' words.
And when he was very young, he played the kola kola bird in Rudyard Kipling's "The Elephant's Child," donning a pair of yellow tights and a feathered breastplate. "I don't know that I was good ... but I obviously caught a bug."
He still remembers the kola kola bird's song, in fact. Sang it from memory.
And yes, he sings better than Kim Kardashian did.
