Since the NY premiere for ‘The Normal Heart’ was earlier this week, cast members from the upcoming HBO film were making the round at the NY-based talk shows. Here’s “Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons chatting up David Letterman about the movie and out NFL Player Michael Sam on “The Late Show With David Letterman.” Here’s what he had to say.

Taylor Kitsch grabbed some time with Jimmy Fallon over at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” earlier this week and is first surprised when Fallon shows him a picture of a younger Kitsch when he frosted his own hair (true story!) and then they segue into a more serious chat about the actor’s role in HBO’s upcoming “The Normal Heart.” Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to bridge the two worlds with finesse!
Sam added, “Like every player out there working to make a team right now, my focus is on playing football to the very best of my ability…I am determined. And if seeing my story helps somebody else accept who they are and to go for their dreams too, that's great. I am thankful to Oprah for her support and excited to work together."
