Jonathan Groff on 'Looking', 'Frozen', 'Spring Awakening', and 'Glee': VIDEO


Peter Travers sat down for a lengthy interview with Jonathan Groff on Popcorn about why Groff seems to be everywhere at the moment. Travers notes that critics call Looking the gay Girls 'because people have nothing better to say', and Groff says that maybe people are trying to read too hard into the show:

"From the very beginning, as we were creating the show, it was all about character and story. There was never any talk about what this meant to the gay community as a whole."

Groff also discusses his comfort level with nude scenes, how he got on to Glee and will he be back for the last season, Spring Awakening on Broadway, and how he came to be on the animated Disney hit Frozen.

Groff also treats us to some Sinatra, singing "I Fall in Love Too Easily" from the 1945 film Anchors Aweigh.

  1. Jonathan is so down to earth and charming and Peter is a very pleasant host. I was unaware of this program or segment but I hope he continues to have other insightful interviews.

  7. Love him & love the show. I'm still disappointed he didn't sing much on Frozen.

  9. He's very charming & talented. Loved him in "Spring Awakening" and he's the only reason I continue to watch "Looking" even though that show is so poorly done it's an embarrassment (even he can't save it).

    Too bad the STARZ series "Boss" was cut short. His character, illegitimate son of mayor & gay-for-pay-off, was becoming very interesting. I was dying to see how it all ended, but the series was killed off first.

  11. In "Looking", he has trouble finding someone to date. Clearly, it's fiction.

  13. He is charming as hell. I bet he's a heartbreaker.

  14. I wonder how many republican soccer moms would have an aneurysm if they knew the voice of the man their daughters are in love with on Frozen is voiced by a gay man who does nudes on HBO? They would freak!!! LOL
