Jim Parson’s homosexuality has never been much of a secret, but the actor was just officially “outed” so to speak in a New York Times article. At one point the author writes about the actor, currently starring in the Broadway production of Harvey and set to soon start filming The Normal Heart: “The Normal Heart resonated with [Parsons] on a few levels: Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment, he said.”

Again, no real surprise, but the casual mention buried in the story shows how comfortable the actor, most well-known for his role on The Big Bang Theory, clearly is with his sexuality.

A gay on CBS. They really are everywhere.

You can watch Parson thank boyfriend Todd Spiewak in his 2010 Emmy acceptance speech below.
