    "Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons opened "Saturday Night Live" with a song about how actors in real life are nothing like the famous TV characters they portray on-screen.
    "People have a hard time separating you from your character," explained Parsons. "I am not like Sheldon. I am not a scientist. I do not speak Klingon. I do have a male roommate, but I assure you it's a vastly different arrangement."
    Parsons then broke out into a song titled "I'm Not That Guy," referencing iconic TV characters from the past and the actors who played them.
    "In the 90s there was Urkel, he made Friday nights a blast, but Jaleel White he's a full grown man who could probably kick your a--."

    "Henry Winkler as The Fonz, the epitome of cool but in real life, he was a nice Jewish boy who went to Yale drama school."SNL Jim Parsons The Fonz
    "Billy Cosby on 'The Cosby Show,' he had bright sweaters galore. But there's a real Bill Cosby and he likes sweaters even more."SNL Jim Parsons Bill Cosby
