The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons sat down with Ellen this week to talk about his latest career highlights: getting immortalized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum. During the ensuing discussion, Ellen revealed that, shockingly, she's never had a wax statue done of herself...and Parsons wants to do something to fix that.

Eric Stonestreet and Jimmy Kimmel

On ABC's Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson play the neurotic-yet-devoted gay couple of Cam and Mitchell, respectively. Off-set the dynamic is still familial, but less like spouses and more like siblings, complete with obnoxious pranks.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Stonestreet talked about his latest prank on his co-star that involved an online sex toy store, the Colt Power Stroker, and a delivery gone awry.

You can watch Stonestreet tell the story, including how he ended up in clown makeup and how the sex toy may have accidentally ended up at Jim Parsons house, AFTER THE JUMP...

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.

Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons Talk 'The Normal Heart': VIDEO

  Thr_normalheart

The cast of HBO's adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart is starting to do publicity ahead of the film's may bow, and stars Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons took a few moments with The Hollywood Reporter this week for a cover story.

Here's one bit that stands out:

Even as Murphy filmed, the politics of gay rights and same-sex marriage were shifting in profound ways. On June 26, the cast and crew assembled on a set decked out to resemble the Paradise Garage, an early '80s Manhattan disco. Murphy was re-creating "April Showers," the first fundraiser held by Kramer and his friends.

A frail Kramer, his own health in question (he was too ill to be interviewed for this story), was visiting that day. Before Murphy called action on the first shot, an electric jolt ran through the set: The Supreme Court had just issued its landmark ruling in the case of United States v. Windsor, declaring that the Defense of Marriage Act, which barred the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriage, was unconstitutional.

Suddenly, the crowd erupted in celebration. Ebullient, screaming and cheering, the actors milled around Kramer, wanting to applaud, to hug him, to thank him for all he had contributed to the fight. The once-fiery Kramer summoned the strength to tell them, "Today's a triumph, but there's still a lot of work to be done." The moment, says Murphy, "was pretty historical and great." Seconds Taylor Kitsch, who plays a closeted gay politico, "We had a blast that day -- it was the kind of day where we recognized this is why we do what we do, to tell these kind of stories."

In addition to a longer interview, Kitsch also told an amusing story about a pair of vintage jeans he had to wear that needed to have the "crotch elongated", because you know...
