For my final interview from this year’s Saturn Awards, I bring you one of the leads on CBS’s awesome sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”. If you watch the show, you know how funny Jim Parsons is as Sheldon Cooper, Ph.D. Each week I’m amazed at how much nerdy dialogue Jim is forced to say, and after speaking with him, he admitted that all the things he says are foreign to him. Yes, it’s all an act…Jim isn’t a geek. Nevertheless, his work is always great and if you read sites like Collider and you aren’t watching “The Big Bang Theory”, you’re definitely missing out on a show you’d enjoy.

Anyway, after the jump you can see Jim talk about Comic-Con, what it’s like to lose his anonymity, did he buy anything special after getting a two season pick-up, what filming in front of an audience is like, and what is he looking forward to this season. Oh and we talked about rock, paper, scissors, Spock.

If you’re a fan of his show, you’ll love the interview. Take a look:

And one last thing, if you missed my video interviews with Simon Helberg (Wolowitz) and Johnny Galecki (Leonard), just click on their names.
