Jonathan Groff On 'Looking': 'I Feel Sad That It Was Canceled'

Jonathan Groff gets sandwiched in-between his Looking co-stars Murray Bartlett and Frankie J. Alvarez while attending The Point Foundation’s Annual Point Honors Gala on Monday (April 13) at the New York City Public Library.

The 29-year-old actor was also joined by T.R. Knight, Brad Goreski, Jeffrey Tambor, and Judith Light at the event where he was honored with the Point Horizon Award.

Jonathan recently opened up about his show Looking being cancelled last month by HBO.

“We wanted to create a show with gay men where they weren’t tragic figures or the comedic relief or sexually sensationalized but just multi-dimensional human beings,” Jonathan told People. “So, I feel sad that it was canceled but grateful for the time that we had. Hopefully it maybe paved the way for other people to create [more] gay stories. Hopefully someday there won’t be just one gay show on the air but multiple shows.”

    Seriously, who wants to see a scripted TV show centered around gays. I love HBO, but I was surprised when it was renewed for a second season. I couldn’t possibly believe people were watching this show.

    It was painfully boring. Men whining about relationships is not interesting.

    Compared to the millions of shows where women constantly complain about relationship? I like this show, it gave us an insight of gay men in relationships. Plus Russell Tovey and Jonathan Groff were beautiful together. The rest of the cast I could take them or leave them. The guy who portrayed Richie was not a good fit for the character. He seemed uncomfortable during the sex scenes, so it made it uncomfortable to watch him.
