Advertisements I came downstairs and was baffled to see my children watching Big Bang Theory......on Nick. Then I realized they were watching iCarly and it inexplicably had Jim Parsons in the episode. So, I thought, "Okay, fine, so Jim Parsons was on iCarly a few years back...." but I checked the date and the episode's air date was less than a month ago (August 13, 2011). I check his IMDB page and indeed, he's down as playing the character "Caleb" in ONE episode of iCarly this year. The guy's won Emmys and Golden Globes....why on earth is he playing a bit part in a cheesy tween sitcom??
