Bouchard's got a 'Big Bang' fan in Jim Parsons

LONDON (AP) — Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard has a big fan in actor Jim Parsons of "The Big Bang Theory." The three-time Emmy winner has been following Bouchard's progress at the All England Club, and he was sitting with the Canadian tennis player's family in the guest box at Centre Court during the semifinals Thursday. When Bouchard's 7-6 (5), 6-2 victory over Simona Halep ended, Parsons joined in with the celebratory handshakes and hugs in the stands. Bouchard said the two met through their respective agents and have been in contact for about a year, trading emails and discussing similarities between acting and sports. "He's emailed me after every single match I've played. He's more positive than all of my team combined. So it's a refreshing change to get a nice email with exclamation marks and smiley faces," Bouchard said. "I'm such a big fan of his show. He says he's such a big fan of me. So it's really cool that he's here to finally watch me live." CBS announced in March it would renew Parson's program — TV's most-watched sitcom — for three more years.
