Parsons has pursued other creative opportunities. He has appeared on Broadway several times, including in a 2011 revival of Larry Kramer's AIDS drama, The Normal Heart. A gay man, Parsons found working on the play especially appealing. Not long after performing in the theater production, Parsons was cast alongside Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer and Mark Ruffalo in the TV adaptation of The Normal Heart, reprising the role he'd performed on Broadway. Parsons's big-screen credits include The Muppets (2011) and the dramatic comedy Wish I Was Here (2014).
