For the movie Home, The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons got to work with singer Rihanna and comedian Steve Martin. “Being around [Rihanna], her songs keep coming into my head and I’ll starting singing out of nowhere,” said Parsons.
“First off, she’ll look at me and go, ‘That gives me chills. And not in a good way,’” joked the actor on The Tonight Show. “Then I thought, what if she was doing ‘Bazinga’ the whole time we were doing press.”
“I would be like, ‘Would you shut up?’” said Jim Parsons.

For the animated film, Jim Parsons got to play “Oh.” In the movie, “An alien on the run from his own people makes friends with a girl. He tries to help her on her quest, but can be an interference.”
Co-star Rihanna played Gratuity ‘Tip’ Tucci, who was the earthling that the movie centered around. Comedian Steve Martin played Captain Smek, who was basically the foolish character in the film.
Parsons was thrilled to work with Rihanna and Steve Martin.

“Isn’t he kind of a throwback in that voice?” said Jim Parsons. “It’s almost like ‘Wild and Crazy Guy.’ He just kind of cut loose. He took such joy in playing a stupid dictator,” joked the actor. “It’s really a pleasure.”
The original film came out in 2015, but there has also been a holiday version created for Netflix. Since this movie, Parsons has mainly worked on The Big Bang Theory, but he’s also landed some other notable roles.
Parsons did voice work for the series SuperMansion and also Michael Jackson’s Halloween, where he played Hay Man. In addition to these animated series, he’s also the narrator on the new series Young Sheldon.
Between his jobs, he also found time to star in a film called A Kid Like Jake, along with a handful of Broadway plays.
In A Kid Like Jake: “As married couple Alex and Greg navigate their roles as parents to a young son who prefers Cinderella to G.I. Joe, a rift grows between them, one that forces them to confront their own concerns about what’s best for their child.”
