Netflix shared first-look pictures of its new drama ‘The Boys in the Band’, with ‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Jim Parsons.
The movie is based on the 1968 play by Mart Crowley, and follows a group of men who meet in New York to celebrate one of their birthdays. Everything is fun and games until the guests find themselves forced to confront some uncomfortable truths.
Parsons stars as a party planner in the series, alongside Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Charlie Carver, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington, Robin de Jesús and Tuc Watkins.
In one picture, Parsons can be seen wearing a dressing gown and looking at himself in a mirror while Bomer stands shirtless behind him.
Another series the cast dancing and laughing in the garden.
The role appears to be a big departure from ‘The Big Bang Theory’, in which Parsons played a physicist called Sheldon.
Parsons recently opened up about the “complicated” reason why he quit the sitcom after 12 seasons.
