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.

8 Remarks

  1. Season Finale is this Sunday on HBO. This season was only eight episodes at 30 minutes each – so get caught up with this terrific series. It is getting hot!……… Great actors and storyline all taking place in the heart of San Francisco. Thanks HBO for renewing!

    Yes, I agree it was off to a slow start but has picked up the last 3 episodes.
    Looking forward to the finale and season 2.

  3. IMHO HBO should extend episodes to an hour not to mention extend the season to at least ten episodes.

  4. Thank You Greg for finally talking about this wonderful show, you were too late talking about partners and featuring it on your blog which is why it probably got cancelled. Please don’t make that same mistake with Looking please Greg mention Looking as much as possible, this is one of the first times I’ve seen anything about Looking on your blog and its already the season finale of the show today.

  5. Thank You Larry for missing the more than one dozen posts on Looking dating back to November. Before you say “I’m ‘too late,’ get your facts straight.

  6. Sorry Greg, I love you :0)

  7. @Greg-SNAP

  8. @Larry-’Partners’ was cancelled IMHO because it wasn’t all that great of a show. Nothing else.
