"I’ve been dying to go back to San Francisco," says Jonathan Groff, who plays Patrick in HBO’s Looking. Now he will, with the gay-centric show from Michael Lannan and Andrew Haigh officially renewed for a second season and production kicking off this summer.
The season one finale airs on March 9, and Groff spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about what to expect, why Patrick singing would be horrendous and that drunken kiss between Patrick and Russell Tovey’s Kevin.
First off, congratulations on season two.
Thank you. We are so stoked. We’ve been keeping our fingers crossed for a season two since the day we wrapped. We had so much fun, it’s ridiculous. We try to get together every week and watch the episodes together. I’ve been dying to go back to San Francisco. I had celebratory drinks in New York with one of our producers Sarah Condon, Murray [Bartlett] and Frankie [J. Alvarez], and with our writers in L.A. and Michael Lannan. And two weeks ago in London with Andrew Haigh.
And congrats, too, on Frozen at the Oscars.
I’m in an afterglow moment of Frozen winning. “Let It Go” is still stuck in my head. I was with my friend yesterday saying, “How can we not get this song out of our heads?”
For Looking's finale, do you think Patrick ends up in a better or worse place after season one than when we meet him?
When we meet Patrick, he’s awkwardly in the woods, uncomfortable but trying to expand and find a new side to himself and putting himself out there. We see a huge evolution in him reflected through his relationship with Richie (Raul Castillo), and then with Kevin, there’s a lot of sexual tension. By the end of the finale, he’s gotten himself into a really tight spot because he’s dealing with the repercussions of letting himself go. He went from not having a boyfriend to having these two amazing men interested in him, and they are two very specific, wonderfully confusing relationships. He doesn’t know where to turn.
I fucking died. I’m dead.
Goodbye my friends I’m gone.
