Kelly & Michael: Jim Parsons Cohost
Kelly & Jim Parsons came out to sit at the co-host desk today. Jim Parsons was the co-host because Michael Strahan was still on vacation and he was hilarious the entire time. He said “I’ll be hear all hour.” Kelly said that they consider him family, and he said he feels like family. People say rude things to him backstage and everything. They loved the way each other looked. Yesterday, Kelly & Taye Digss matched, and the pattern continued with Kelly & Jim Parsons. They both wore blue, and they still weren’t planning these things! Jim Parsons said he slept in his outfit last night.
Kelly & Michael: Tony Awards
Jim Parsons didn’t go to the Tony Awards. He was in LA and then woke up for an early flight to New York the next day, so he fell asleep. He already knew who had won because it aired in the East first but hadn’t aired in the West yet. Kelly watched it and loves it every year. Jim Parsons said it’s the best award show to attend.
Kelly & Michael: The Normal Heart Review
Kelly thought of him about the Tony’s because he was in The Normal Heart. He’s one of the characters who was in both the stage production and the HBO movie. Kelly went on about how wonderful he and it was. He said that Joe Mantello was the other actor in both productions. Ryan Murphy directed the movie, and did such a good job. Kelly asked if there’s anything Murphy can’t do, and Parsons said, “Apparently not.” He works with a lot of flavors.
Kelly & Michael: Mommie Dearest Review
Kelly once went to a dinner with Murphy and they recited all of Mommie Dearest to each other back and forth, which was apparently a great film. I’ve never seen it. They talked about wire hangers. Kelly’s seen the movie in a lot of places, including the type of showings where everyone’s there to quote along.
Parsons has seen it over and over again on cable. It frightened him, but not Kelly. They both wanted to live in the house. Parsons thinks he might have a Mommie Dearest inside him. He wondered if he could beat somebody. Kelly said we all can, but we resist that urge. Parsons apologized for making it weird.
Kelly & Michael: Stanley Cup
Kelly took her kids to the Rangers game last night. They’re down three to nothing. They were the guests of the NHL Commissioner. She had a picture, but her daughter didn’t make it to the picture. She was probably taking a selfie and posting it onto Instagram.
Kelly & Michael: Jim Parsons Instagram Handle
Jim Parsons is new to Instagram. He joined in June 2014. He has to resist the urge to take a picture everywhere he goes. Kelly wanted to know what his handle is. He warned them that he’s not very good yet. He’s the Real Jim Parsons. He said that there are other Jim Parsons out there. One of them has over 300,000 followers, and he has 49. That’s great. Kelly told everyone to follow him, and he said if he finds a way to make money off of it, he’ll giver her 10%.
Kelly & Michael: Baby LoJack
They wondered why they didn’t invent Instagram. These things come out and they think, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Well, Kelly did invent something! She thought of something when her son was born 17 years ago and Mark told her she was crazy. She wanted to create a LoJack for babies. Parsons said, “Speaking of Mommie Dearest.” She was worried about her baby.
Parsons got it, he worries about his dogs, which is adorable. Now there’s a baby LoJack everywhere. Parsons pointed out that they implant chips in dogs, but they don’t do that with babies yet. Kelly’s dog has one, but Parsons’ doesn’t. Kelly said she finds it sometimes, but thinks it’s a tick and has to do a search.
