Well, there’s a rumour gathering pace (ahem) online that Sheldon Cooper, or as he’s called in real life, Jim Parsons, is in the running to play The Flash in the Justice League. And no, there’s no Bazinga! coming, it’s apparently true…
Sheldon in the series is more often than not wearing Flash logo tees and often talks about the scarlet speedster. Although curiously, in real life Parsons now almost nothing about him, speaking at the Paley Fest, Parsons was heard telling reporters: “I know that he’s red and gold and moves quickly. But I do have a theory that a lot of times, actors do their best work when they are playing characters that they know little-to-nothing about—at first.”
Greg Berlanti who writes on Arrow, is on scripting duties for the Flash stand-alone movie, and although the studio is apparently keen on Parsons, nothing is expected to be announced for a while.
Ok, honestly? We don’t think there’s anything to this, but it’s the weekend and we thought we’d kick it off with something we love….
