Jonathan Groff: 'Looking' is 'Very Different' From 'Girls'

Jonathan Groff poses for pictures at the Outfest Queer Brunch as part of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on Sunday (January 19) in Park City, Utah.

The 28-year-old actor was joined at the event by the creator of his new show Looking Michael Lannan.

“I think the cool thing about the comparisons to Girls or Queer as Folk or Sex and the City,” Jonathan told Zap2it about the show. “But the writing and tone and style are very different, and I think once people see the show and they start to see a couple of episodes and get, sort of, what we’re trying to express, they’ll understand it’s sort of a whole thing unto itself.”

Looking premiered that day on HBO – did you get a chance to watch it??

    Looking is way better than Girls. The characters, regardless of being gay men, are much more relatable than those hipster 20-something girls, who want to pose as modern and shit but in the end of the day they just want a cock to define who they are.

    I thought it was pretty boring – my gay room-mate hated it (just sayin’). girls is so overrated. i really miss 30 rock!

    Loved it, it’s not perfect but at least There We Are in some context. Can’t wait for the next episode. I also love Girls, the new season is much smarter and gives more laughs than last.

    Nothing can be better than Queer as Folk.
