'Looking' Stars Reflect On Show's Legacy And The HBO Farewell Film
Huffington Post - 7 months
Fans of “Looking” will get an overdue valentine this weekend, when the gay-themed HBO series concludes with a much-anticipated television film. For stars Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett, however, “Looking: The Movie” represents more than just a fond farewell to the series, which struggled to find an audience during its brief, two-season run despite critical acclaim. It was an opportunity to reunite with a cast and creative team they fondly refer to as a “family” for a full-length project with director Andrew Haigh, whose 2015 film, “45 Years,” became an awards season darling. “We got the call that the show was canceled, and it was the same call that we got the information about the movie. It was a bittersweet feeling,” Alvarez told The Huffington Post. “More often than not, these shows get canceled, and there’s no sense of closure for the characters. But there’s also no sense of closure for us as actors, for the family we created. To close it out [by] mak ...

'Looking' gets the gay S.F. wardrobe right
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
HBO series finds the wardrobe to fit the gay characters in S.F. When I first heard that HBO's new series "Looking" would center on the lives of gay men in their 20s living in San Francisco, I had mixed feelings. Lead characters Patrick (Jonathan Groff), Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez) and Dom (Murray Bartlett) dress like the guys I see in bars, riding Muni and (if I'm lucky) swiping my way through Grindr. [...] Patrick walks a typically San Francisco fine line between prep and cultivated geek (as a video game designer, his tech-appropriate side-strap commuter bag is a realistic touch) while Agustin's outgrown scruff and DIY hipster vibe represents another El Rio trope in authentic native costuming.

“Looking”: An unlikable character searching for love
Salon.com - about 3 years
"Looking," a show about three 30-something gay males seeking career and relationship fulfillment in contemporary San Francisco, debuts this Sunday. Like a lot of HBO's newer half-hours -- "Hello Ladies," "Going On" -- "Looking" is a relatively understated affair. The show was spawned from a short film by creator Michael Lannan and retains that indie feel and scale. Fortunately, that aesthetic intimacy serves the story greatly. I don't know if it's politically incorrect or simply passé to portray this look at gay singletons as a peek into some secret world -- it's San Francisco, after all, not Saudi Arabia -- but there is no question all the close-ups and soft focus heighten the drama. While "Looking" is ensemble-driven, like other such shows, the audience requires a character to serve as its entrée into the world. In this case, that character is Patrick (Jonathan Groff), a 29-year-old video game designer who, after learning of his ex-boyfriend's impending nuptials, is newly energized ...

TV: Groff Goes 'Looking' for Love in SF
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
Groff, 28, is one of the busiest young actors in film, TV and theater working today. The Pennsylvania native calls last year his "dream year" because of two projects for HBO - "Looking," which premieres Sunday after "Girls," and "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy's long-awaited film of Larry Kramer's historic 1985 play about the early years of the AIDS crisis, "The Normal Heart," airing in May. Groff was in Pasadena last week with other cast members from both HBO projects to talk to the Television Critics Association at the group's winter press tour. The series follows the lives and loves of three men-Patrick (Groff), a young video game developer; Dom (Murray Bartlett), cynical and dissatisfied with his job as a waiter at San Francisco's celebrated Zuni Cafe, and Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez), an artist's assistant to a demanding and pretentious boss. ('Looking') is specifically about the gay community, but partially because the characters aren't having struggles with their sexuality, strai ...

Jonathan Groff Takes Center Stage In New 'Looking' Trailer
Huffington Post - over 3 years
HBO debuted a trailer with the first footage from their upcoming series, "Looking." Starring Jonathan Groff ("Glee"), Frankie J. Alvarez ("Smash") and Murray Bartlett ("Guiding Light"), the show follows a trio of gay men living in San Francisco, trying to find love in the digital age. While the trailer is brief, it gives us a glimpse at what could very likely become HBO's gay version of "Girls." (Fingers crossed?) The stars were also on hand last night at Out magazine's Out100 Awards in New York, where they introduced the trailer. Check out some photos of the cast at the event below and tune in to watch "Looking" on Jan. 19 on HBO. Jonathan on stage at the Out100 party last night with Murray Bartlett and Frankie J.

New HBO Show Is 'The Gay Experience'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Jonathan Groff hopes his new HBO series represents multiple aspects of gay life. The dramedy, which stars Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez ("Smash") and Murray Bartlett ("Damages") as three friends living in San Francisco, hails from Michael Lannan, who will serve as executive producer alongside Sarah Condon and David Marshall Grant. Lannan wrote the pilot, which will be directed by Andrew Haigh. According to SFGate, Groff will play a video game designer named Patrick, who's looking for love on OKCupid. "The show hopefully will express all facets of gay life," he said. "We're all different types of people. There's lots of people who have anonymous sex. There's also people looking for love. There's people looking for an open relationship. There are also the queens. There are those you wouldn't know were gay. It's the gay experience." HBO is targeting a 2014 premiere date with eight episodes planned for the new series. No title has been set yet.
