HBO’s Looking. You either WORSHIPPED it or LOATHED it. Very few in-betweens. I loved it, but only the second season when wowlebrity Danny Franzese came on board as the lovable bear/god Eddie.
After being unceremoniously dumped by the network last year, though, the whole gang returns next month to wrap up the loose ends.
And it appears from the trailer, below, that Patrick (Jonathan Groff) won’t end up with either Richie (Raul Castillo) or Kevin (Russell Tovey), but Dom (Murray Bartlett) – !!!!. Hopefully thats not the case, but who knows.
After living in Denver for nearly a year, Patrick returns to San Francisco for the first time to celebrate the wedding of old friends. In the process, he must face the unresolved relationships he left behind and make difficult choices about what’s truly important to him.
Starring Jonathan Groff (Tony Award nominee for “Hamilton,” HBO’s “The Normal Heart”), Frankie J. Alvarez (“Smash”) and Murray Bartlett (“August”), LOOKING: THE MOVIE wraps up the story of three close friends who explore the options available to a new generation of gay men seeking fulfillment in love and life.
In addition to Jonathan Groff (Patrick), Frankie J. Alvarez (Agustín) and Murray Bartlett (Dom), LOOKING: THE MOVIE also stars series regulars Lauren Weedman (Doris), Russell Tovey (Kevin) and Raúl Castillo (Richie), as well as returning guests Daniel Franzese (Eddie), Bashir Salahuddin (Malik), Chris Perfetti (Brady), O.T. Fagbenle (Frank) and Jennifer Foster (Kyah). New guests include Michael Rosen (Jimmy) and Derek Phillips (Jake). The film also features a special appearance by Tyne Daly.
