According to Big Bang Theory: Jim Parsons becomes a Hollywood monster in new Netflix series
Since the end of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon actor Jim Parsons has been quiet. Now he’s back in the highly anticipated Netflix series Hollywood. Fans of his favorite nerd might be shocked, because this time he plays a truly monstrous creep. But what is Hollywood anyway?
This is the new series project of Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan. Murphy is known for award-winning series like American Horror Story, American Crime Story and Pose. After The Politicianist, this is the 2nd Netflix series for Ryan Murphy, who was recruited by the streaming service for a massive $300 million.
You can watch the first impressive trailer of the Netflix series Hollywood in the player above or further down in the article.
New on Netflix: What is Hollywood all about?
The new opulent Netflix series takes us back to the Hollywood of the 1940s. After the war, a diverse group of young artists tries to set up a daring film project that will shake the conservative structures of the dream factory to its foundations. You may have already noticed that there was never such a film.
Because Hollywood is a what-if story that reinterprets real people and events through a fictional story. Ryan Murphy wants nothing less than to rewrite the history of Hollywood and show us the Hollywood that could have been: A place for dreamers, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.
Hollywood on Netflix: A showcase of the stars
Apart from the interesting story and the historical background of the Hollywood structures, the highlight of Hollywood is definitely the huge cast with well-known faces like Darren Criss, Samara Weaving, Patti LuPone and of course The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons.
In Hollywood Parsons mimes the real agent Henry Wilson, who helped stars like Rock Hudson (one of the main characters of the series) to great fame. However, Wilson demanded a high price for success and forced his protégés and clients to perform humiliating sexual favors, which is already hinted at in the trailer.
In addition to the passion of filmmaking, Hollywood also focuses on the dark side of the dream factory and will deal with topics such as racism, sexism and prostitution. Already now Hollywood sounds like one of the most exciting Netflix projects of the year. But see for yourself first in the glamorous trailer for Hollywood:
