Jonathan Groff Discusses Awards Season, THE NORMAL HEART & More

Jonathan Groff Discusses Awards Season, THE NORMAL HEART & MoreTriple-threat theatre and film star Jonathan Groff sheds some light on his starring role on the HBO TV series LOOKING as well as his participation in the recent hit stage-to-screen adaptation of Larry Kramer's Tony Award-winning play The Normal Heart and more as part of a new interview.

Touching upon the episode he is considering submitting for awards consideration for LOOKING, Groff shares, "I actually had to submit an episode to be considered for being nominated for an Emmy and Episode 5 was the one I that submitted. I feel really proud of that episode and also I feel it's a good representation of what makes our show unique... it's a lot of capturing the cinematography and the performances through just one shot."

Groff says, "It felt like a really special, unique, singular experience."

Reflecting on his experience working on The Normal Heart and comparing it to LOOKING, Groff says, "I found out I was going to do The Normal Heart while we were shooting the pilot of LOOKING, which was interesting."

Additionally, Groff shares of his preparation for the role in the AIDS-centric film, "I talked to some of my friends who lived through it... I just sort of picked the brains of my friends. It was more sort of hearing stories that were passed down."

THE NORMAL HEART aired May 25 on HBO.

LOOKING is set to return with an expanded second season later this year according to recent reports.
