In 2011, Parsons received a Theatre World Award for his debut Broadway performance as Tommy Boatwright in the Tony Award-winning revival of "The Normal Heart," starring opposite Ellen Barkin, John Benjamin Hickey and Joe Mantello. "The Normal Heart" was also presented with the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play and Outstanding Ensemble Performance. A critical sensation, the show also received nominations from The Outer Critics Circle for Outstanding Revival of a Play, as well as five Tony Award nominations. The play ends its 12-week run at the Golden Theatre on July 10th.

On the big screen, Parsons appears in the comedy "The Big Year," opposite Rashida Jones, Anjelica Huston, Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. Directed by David Frankel, the film is based on Mark Obmascik's tome about three men who try to outdo each other during a year-long competition to spot the rarest birds in North America. Parsons will play an avid birder in the contest. Parsons also appears in the feature film "The Muppets," opening in theaters Thanksgiving 2011. 

His other film credits include Todd Phillips' "School for Scoundrels," opposite Billy Bob Thorton and Jon Heder, and Chris Terrio's "Heights," opposite Glenn Close and James Marsden. Parsons delivered scene-stealing performances in several independent films, including "Garden State," "Gardner of Eden" and "The Great New Wonderful."

Parsons earned a Masters in Fine Arts degree from the Old Globe Theater/University of San Diego and a B.A. from the University of Houston. He acted in productions there including "Endgame," "Guys and Dolls" and "The Balcony."

Parsons loves to play the piano and also enjoys watching sports, especially tennis, baseball and basketball.
