Jim Parsons, most famous for playing Sheldon Cooper on hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory and one of the highest paid stars on television, has revealed his participation in a new project. Jim, who will also be starring in a Broadway musical The Boys in the Band, will be playing a major role in the new Ted Bundy biopic.
This marks one of the first times Jim Parsons will be taking a movie role since he was cast as Sheldon Cooper. And it sounds like a perfect fit. Jim brings life to the character of Sheldon and has stood out as a fantastic character actor with a weird energy that could be just at home in a horror film as it could in a comedy.
Currently the biopic has been building up hype by circulating images of its star Zac Effron made up to look like legendary serial killer Ted Bundy, and we have to admit the likeness is terrifying.
Ted Bundy was one of America’s most notorious serial killers and rapists with over 30 victims killed during his lifetime. Bundy was notorious for his sexual sadism and tendency towards necrophilia.
He was also famous for being relatively good looking, young, and very well educated. Bundy was charismatic enough that he even acted as his own lawyer during his trial and were it not for an escape attempt it’s quite likely he could have convinced the jury he was innocent. He also used his looks to his advantage, often standing by his car with a fake plaster cast on his arm while struggling to haul groceries into his car.
If a young woman approached him he would ask her to help, beat her into submission using the cast, and then kidnap her in broad daylight.
Unsurprisingly, he is the source of a lot of nightmares. And it looks like it will be up to Jim Parsons to put him in prison as he will be playing the court prosecutor in the upcoming adaptation, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (what a name!)
