Buried in an article in Variety listing new additions to the cast of the eagerly anticipated movie on competitive birding, The Big Year, is a mention that Jim Parsons (from The Big Bang Theory) will be playing “the author of a popular avian blog.” Which blog? A real one or a pretend one? And did bird blogs exist in 1998 when the action takes place? And how cool is this?
Also, it seems that Debbie Shearwater, the west coast pelagic birder, will be played by Anjelica Huston.
