Jonathan Groff on kissing co-stars, “Looking” being renewed for season 2 & being single again
Hung out with fellow gay journalist Jim Halterman at last night’s Outfest Fusion kickoff party and today he’s posted a chat he recently had with Looking star Jonathan Groff.
Here are some excerpts (Warning: Spoiler Alert below):
Were you confident through the whole thing about a second season or were you a little uneasy about it?
Jonathan Groff: We had been feeling anxious, nervous, excited, hopeful for a season two since the day we wrapped season one. There was always sort of a feeling, like a feeling that we might come back, but you never can tell, you know?
There are so many times when people say, oh, it’s a sure thing, it’s definitely going to happen, it’s definitely going to happen, but you never know until you get that official announcement. So we’re just so excited to go back to San Francisco.
What’s more challenging for you, standing in front of a mirror naked with no dialogue or doing a sex scene with Russell Tovey?
JG: Oh, good question. Definitely being alone because it’s way more fun to make out with Russell.
Is Russell a good kisser?
JG: Oh, Russell’s a great kisser, are you kidding?
I was watching you on “Watch What Happens Live” a couple weeks ago and Andy Cohen was asking if you’re single so I’m wondering if that comes up a lot these days and if you mind?
JG: It does come up a lot, and I don’t mind saying I’m single. Maybe I’ll, like, get a boyfriend from all the single talk. [laughs]
I hope you’re at least getting some dates out of this.
JG: I’m not, really, not that many. But yeah. Also, I just moved into a new apartment. I don’t really have furniture yet, so I’m still putting my own sort of life together. But yes, I’m single, and I don’t mind when people ask me about it.
