Jonathan Groff Says 'Looking' Movie Is 'Perfect Ending'!

Jonathan Groff is all smiles while hitting the blue carpet at the premiere of his latest film Looking held during the 2016 Frameline40 Film Festival at Castro Theatre on Sunday (June 26) in San Francisco, Calif.

The 31-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-stars Russell Tovey, Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Daniel Franzese, Lauren Weedman, and Raul Castillo, executive producer and co-writer Michael Lannan, and director/co-writer Andrew Haigh.

“It was very meta for all of us,” Jonathan expressed about wrapping up the HBO series after the show was canceled after two seasons (via Broadway World). “Coming back to shoot the movie was like coming back to say goodbye to our characters and San Francisco. But when I read the script, I thought: ‘Omigod, that’s the perfect ending!’”

The film will air on Saturday, July 23 at 10pm – Watch the trailer here!

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.”
