Creating yet another world in which the handsome young jocks are always being pushed around by those law-loving nerds, just because they happen to also be vicious, amoral serial killers, THR is reporting that Jim Parsons has been cast as the prosecutor trying to put Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy behind bars in the upcoming Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile. The Big Bang Theory star—whose past film credits include Home and Hidden Figures—will play lead prosecutor Larry Simpson, the man who eventually put Bundy behind bars.

Parsons joins a pretty hefty cast, which already includes Efron, Lily Collins, and John Malkovich. The film is being directed by Joe Berlinger, whose past credits include a whole host of TV and film documentaries, as well as Book Of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.
