Jim Parsons: “It’s important that gay characters are portrayed as well-rounded and completely human individuals”

In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, four-time Emmy winner Jim Parsons addresses the debate over whether straight actors should portray LGBTQ characters in entertainment.

He said: “There’s definitely this spectrum: I think the fight, as it were, is not about having only gay people play the gay parts but to ensure that all parts are open to all actors. It’s important that gay characters are portrayed as well-rounded and completely human individuals.

“And there are plenty of straight actors who have played gay characters brilliantly. I think ‘Brokeback Mountain’ is one of the most touching gay movies and love stories I have ever seen, and those two straight actors [Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal] were the best choices for those roles.”
