Output_1lu1St

Two new clips from Andrew Haigh, Michael Lannan, and the filmmakers behind HBO's Looking take us behind the second season of the San Francisco-based drama starring Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Raul Castillo, and Russell Tovey which premieres on January 11.

FranzeseBackstage clips offer glimpses of on-set goofiness, kissing between co-stars, drinking in the wilderness, and interviews with Groff, Haigh, Bartlett, Tovey, Lannan, Alvarez, and Castillo.

Lauren Weedman's Doris becomes a bigger part of season 2 and finds (an apparently well-hung) love interest.

Says Haigh: "The fans should expect us going further, digging deeper. It's the show but bigger."

Earlier this week we also showed you the colorful Season 2 teaser. Watch it HERE. And back in September we posted 17 on-set photos from Season 2's set. Check em out HERE.

The Cast Of 'Looking' Leathers It Up For The Out100 - PHOTO

Leather

As part of Out Magazine's annual Out100 honors, out gay actors Jonathan Groff, Murray Bartlett and Russell Tovey of Looking channeled the first Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco circa 1984. The boys seemed to have formed quite a bond working on what Out named the TV show of the year:

Groff and his rowdy band of brothers — [...] Raúl Castillo, Murray Bartlett, Frankie J. Alvarez, and Russell Tovey — taunt and tease and riff off each other like they’ve been playing dress-up together their entire lives. Without missing a beat, Alvarez dubs Groff’s impish attitude “hashtag chapswag,” and the nickname sticks. The show’s creators and many of the crew are queer, but you’d need a cheat sheet to remember who’s not actually gay (Castillo and Alvarez, if you must keep score).

Andrew Haigh, the creator of HBO's Looking, Instagrammed this adorable photo of actors Raul Castillo and Jonathan Groff from the streets of San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair yesterday, where the cast was spending a bit more time. Looking has been shooting its second season since late August in and around the Bay area.

Fans of the show will remember a few pivotal scenes from the show last year for which Groff donned some leather.

Castillo, who recently joined Instagram, posted a photo from the Fair as well, with the caption, "Folsom Street Fair 2014. Check."

Several new actors have joined the cast this season including Mean Girls star Daniel Franzese, Crossbones' Chris Perfetti and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon's Bashir Salahuddin.

Russell Tovey, Jonathan Groff And Murray Bartlett Watched The Emmys Together, Without Bitterness: PHOTO

Looking

Some of the lads from HBO's Looking got together for a little Emmy viewing party last night (as you do) and were notably upbeat despite the fact that their show did not receive any nods from Emmy voters. Looking's creator Andrew Haigh (who also wrote and directed Weekend) shared the above image on Instagram with the caption: "Watching the Emmys (without bitterness)."

Looking will be back for a second season, though filming has not yet begun.


'Looking' Back: Episode 8, 'Looking Glass' - RECAP

5_looking

Count me among those who initially were unimpressed with Looking, but have really fallen for its charms. After the first four episodes left me wanting for more excitement and tension, the final stretch of the freshman season has me fully invested and loving (almost all) the characters.

Episode five, "Looking For the Future" was the turning point. By zooming in on Patrick (Jonathan Groff) and Richie (Raúl Castillo), we got to spend enough time to better understand how all their little character quirks and nuances came together in aggregate. If only we had similar time with the other characters. It makes me want to view this first, short season as almost like a prequel miniseries for what I'm hoping is an extended second season

Tonight's finale, titled "Looking Glass," certainly contained a few unexpected twists (and one expectedly adorable butt), ending the eight-episode run on a high note. 

Discuss the season finale and read our thoughts, AFTER THE JUMP ...
