LOOKING Back: An Interview With Michael Lannan As Everybody's Favorite/Least Favorite Gay Series Comes To Blu-ray/DVD Comments (0)

Looking jonathan groff

When Looking debuted on HBO, everyone had an opinion, and that opinion usually included the word “love” or the word 81TLiqh+vnL._SL1500_“hate.”

After two seasons, the show went out with a bang—a movie meant to tie up loose ends to the extent that loose ends can ever be tied up, and to give the series' fans proper closure.

With Looking being released November 15 in a special Blu-ray and DVD set containing the entire series and the movie, I chatted with Michael Lannan, the guy who created the show that took on HIV panic, infidelity, racism and classism in the LGBT community and, well, rimming.

Jonathan Groff On The Not-Always-Animal Act Of Gay Sex Comments (0)

The cast of Looking: The Movie HBO movie—airing July 23 on HBO—assembled in San Francisco for its world premiere yesterday, which finished off the 40th anniversary of the LGBT film fest Frameline.

Some 1,400 fans bought up the seats, and reportedly cheered the movie-length finale of the series, which lasted two seasons and divided gay viewers.

Over at Broadway World, Groff was quoted on the show's graphic sex scenes:

It's hard to lie in a sex scene because you're so vulnerable and literally naked. Also, I had friends who didn't know gay people could have sex while facing one another. When Russell fucked me at the end of the first season, face to face, they thought [gay sex] was always from behind. I laughed but while driving home, I thought: 'That's so sad.' That they think gay people can't relate to one another while we're having sex. That it's just some animal act from behind. That's why I feel so proud of the sex scenes in 'Looking.' Because they were written and directed so beautifully.
