Jim Parsons Quotes
I did have a Twitter account that I tried for a couple days, but found I had nothing to say. There are some interesting facts I could share, but I don't want to share that part of myself.

I think in any form of acting, you're always well served if you've done theater.

If I ever wrote a script myself, it would be strongly emotional material.
