GLENDALE, Calif.—“Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons provides the voice of Oh, a banished alien, who kindly helps a human girl (voiced by singer Rihanna) try to find her mother (played by actress/singer/talent judge Jennifer Lopez) in DreamWorks animated comedy adventure “Home.” Directed by animation veteran Tim Johnson (“Over the Hedge,” “Antz”) and written by Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember, the family friendly feature marks Parsons first foray into animated film.

The Houston native, who possesses a sardonic wit, recently spoke at a press conference at DreamWorks Animation headquarters in Glendale, Calif., about venturing into the world of voiceover, tackling the otherworldly animated character, working with Rihanna and how the themes of the movie about acceptance and respecting other people’s differences resonated on a personal level with him.
