Parsons befriends ‘Harvey’

Actor to star in spring Broadway revival

Jim Parsons has nailed down his next legit gig, toplining an upcoming Broadway revival of “Harvey.”

The “Big Bang Theory” Emmy winner, who made his Main Stem bow last season in the revival of “The Normal Heart,” will appear in a Roundabout Theater Company production helmed by Scott Ellis, the associate a.d. of the Gotham nonprofit.

Parsons will play the man who pals around with a giant invisible rabbit in the 1944 play by Mary Chase. Cast also will include Jessica Hecht and Charles Kimbrough.

Title, best known from its 1950 film version starring James Stewart, was previously revived on Broadway in a short 1970 stint.

New limited engagement — produced by Roundabout in association with Don Gregory, who holds rights to the play — will begin after the Tony eligibility cutoff for the 2011-12 season, starting previews May 18 ahead of a June 14 opening at Studio 54, one of the Roundabout’s Broadway venues.

Full casting details remain to be announced.
