Actor Jim Parsons stopped by Ellen last week to chat about his upcoming role in the HBO movie The Normal Heart – a role Parsons also plays in the Broadway version of the production.

In the interview, Parsons talked about the importance of sharing with the public the story of the early AIDS crisis, which he describes as “a real life horror movie in many ways.”

And in a separate clip, Parsons talks about his 10-year relationship with boyfriend Todd Spiewak - with Ellen repeatedly pressing him on why the couple hasn't gotten hitched yet.
