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.

Starry-Eyed: Becky Ann Baker & Jonathan Groff Comments (0)

IMG_0504(Image by Matthew Rettenmund)

I didn't realize until recently that Becky Ann Baker is married to Dylan Baker; I have seen both around my neighborhood for years.

Becky Ann is currently giving an Emmy-worthy performance on Girls (a show on which it's damn hard to make a big impression, with so many other outstanding performances), and she also knows that redheads look fantastic in purple.

Seeing Jonathan Groff in Hell's Kitchen is about as rare as seeing guys in tank tops on cold days here, but it's exciting seeing him nonetheless. Granted, my snap this time is not the best, but it's still hard to take a bad pic of the looker.

More interesting than his looks, Groff is simply not given enough credit for all he has done. He has killed it on Broadway more than once, was a part of the phenomenon that was Glee and fought the good fight with Looking, an honest effort to present the LGBT experience (part of it!) to the mainstream without watering things down.

Along with looking good in jeans.

Sounding Groff Comments (0)

Tumblr_lnki8ojifO1qbfqzlo1_500

Jonathan Groff talked with Kevin Sessums about his career in general, Looking and Hamilton. In the process, he reiterates that Madonna was on her iPad (not phone) for most of the show. This time, it's just a “bummer,” instead of worthy of calling her a “bitch.”

More interestingly, Dick Cheney allegedly loved the show.

Presidential ... Sweet!: Hangin' At HAMILTON Comments (0)

As you may have read, I think the much-hyped Hamilton is—if anything—underrated!

I had a great time at the show, and was lucky enough to get to go backstage, where I met up with the charming Andrew Chappelle and other members of this talented cast.

All were super nice, and I was again surprised by how tall Jonathan Groff really is. (We bumped into him on the way out, as he was graciously mingling with his stage-door sallies.)
