Jonathan Groff talks Looking to OUT

The Looking star talks about the show in the new issue of OUT.

Jonathan Groff is the cover star for the new issue of OUT magazine.

The Glee star talks to the magazine about the arrival of his new HBO series Looking which starts in the US this weekend. Expected to run for 8 episodes, the show is directed by Weekend’s Andrew Haigh and is about a group of gay friends living in San Francisco. Groff stars alongside Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett in the show.

“Our show is less about people at the beginning in their 20s figuring out who they are,” Groff says, “and more about people stepping into their lives in their 30s and 40s and finding their place in the world.”

Talking about his decision to not have ‘hyper-successful’ characters, Haigh adds, “All the characters are from different socioeconomic backgrounds, different ethnicities – that can happen a lot more readily in the gay community,” says Haigh. “What you connect to initially is your sexuality, not your age or where you’ve been to school.” The characters in Looking, he says, are “not aspiring to be rich. They’re not aspiring to have lots of sex. They’re aspiring to have happier lives, more fulfilled lives.”
