After struggling composer Gordon Michael Schwinn, played by Jonathan, collapses at the piano, he is diagnosed with a brain tumor and is forced to come to terms with his creative ambitions and the people in his life: an overbearing mother, played by Ana, a ruthless kiddie-show host, played by Dan, and a boyfriend who’d “rather be sailing,” played by Aaron Lazar.

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.
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.”

Jonathan Groff hits the carpet at an evening with HBO’s Looking at the Paley Center for the Media on Wednesday (February 25) in Los Angeles.
The 29-year-old actor was joined by his co-stars Raul Castillo, Murray Bartlett, Frankie J. Alvarez, Lauren Weedman, and Daniel Franzese, as well as executive producers Andrew Haigh and Michael Lannan.
It was just announced that Jonathan will be joining the cast of the off-Broadway musical Hamilton, which has been a smash-hit that has sold out its entire run through May. He will join the cast on March 3 to replace Brian d’Arcy James, who had a prior commitment that forces him to leave.
Hamilton has already announced a Broadway transfer, which will begin performances on July 13. We hope that Jon sticks with the show for the long haul!

Here’s what the 28-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On his new HBO show Looking: “Our show is less about people at the beginning in their twenties figuring out who they are and more about people stepping into their lives in their thirties and forties and finding their place in the world.”
On watching iconic gay show Queer as Folk: “I was in high school. I remember I was visiting people who were in college and we went to a party and it was on TV. The scene I saw was somebody fucking somebody in a steam room. I remember thinking, Oh my god! It was very salacious to me. I knew I was gay at the time, but I was still in school and totally in the closet. It was like ‘Whoaaa, that’s a lot. That’s a lot to see.’”
On his first scene in Looking: “The very first scene of the pilot is me going out to the woods to get a hand job.”
