Actor Jim Parsons shed his squeaky-clean "Big Bang Theory" image in favor of a black corset, fishnets and heels at a Hollywood benefit this week.

Parsons, who nabbed Emmy Awards in 2010 and 2011 for his turn as the geeky Sheldon Cooper on "Theory," played the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" at the 21st annual "A Night at Sardi's" event in Hollywood. Proceeds from the event reportedly benefitted the Alzheimer's Association, according to Just Jared.

Joining Parsons onstage for the performance were co-stars Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik and Johnny Galecki, as well as "Wings" actor Steven Weber.

Parsons' sexuality was confirmed in a New York Times article last year. Of the 39-year-old actor, who was then starring on Broadway in a revival of "Harvey," writer Patrick Healy noted, "Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship."
