OMG!!! It's not a lead or anything, clearly supporting, but still ... JIM PARSONS GOT A MOVIE ROLE!! It's The Big Year (and, yes, I'm amused that his first post-getting Big Bang Theory role has the word 'Big' in the title), starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. Anjelica Huston and Rashida Jones were also announced today. Filming starts today.

SQUEE!! I get to see Jim Parsons on the big screen. WOOHOO!!!

Based on Mark Obmascik's 1998 book The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature and Fowl Obsession, The Big Year is about three men who try to outdo each other in a bird-watching competition to spot the rarest birds in North America. The rivalry is an allegory for the challenges each faces in his own life. Jones will play Black's love interest, also a bird-watcher, while Huston will also play a competitive bird-watcher while Parsons will play a bird-watching blogger.

ETA: ETA: For my fellow Community lovers ... Joel McHale is in talks to join The Big Year as well. JIM & JOEL COULD BE IN A MOVIE TOGETHER!!!
