He's famous for playing uptight and geeky Sheldon Cooper on American sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

But Jim Parson played a scientist of a different kind on Wednesday as he took part in a stage musical for charity.

The 39-year-old actor wore black lingerie with a curly wig and fishnet stockings held up by suspenders while backstage at the 21st Annual A Night at Sardi's to benefit the Alzheimer's Association.

During the gathering held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California, he posed next to his blonde bombshell co-star Kaley Cuoco in his bustier and high heel shoes.

Jim – who last year publicly came out as gay - played the iconic role of Dr Frank-N-Furter while 27-year-old Kaley took on the part of Janet Weiss.

Other recognisable faces from the programme included Johnny Galecki, Mayim Bialik, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar and Melissa Rauch, who donned more interesting attire featuring leather and studs as well as sequins.

According to Variety Johnny quipped at one point to guests: 'The more you drink, the better I'll sound.'

The group were performing a number from the Rocky Horror Show and Kaley showed they were very much in the spirit to raise money as she slid along the floor to give her best effort.

Prior to taking part in The Best of Broadway production, the cast appeared in the photo area in their most glamorous get up.
