Out actor Jonathan Groff has joined the cast of the upcoming film “Matrix 4.”
According to Collider, Groff has been added to the roster of names confirmed to be involved in the much-anticipated sequel to the now-classic mind-bending sci-fi trilogy.
While doing press on the other side of the pond, some of the stars of Disney’s “Frozen 2” decided to hit up a London gay bar for a little “Frozen” sing-a-long.
Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad — who voice animated characters Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf in the highly anticipated sequel, as well as the original — visited Heaven, a gay nightclub in London to perform (possibly after a few drinks?) the Oscar-winning hit song from the first film, “Let It Go.”
When the HBO series Looking was cancelled after only two seasons, it left fans without a proper finale and many unanswered questions. HBO promised a 2-hour movie special to tie up the loose ends and it now looks like they are delivering on that promise.
Filming starts Nov. 2 and series star Jonathan Groff will be stepping away from his current role on Broadway in Hamilton to shoot the film. Book of Mormon and Girls’ actor Andrew Rannells will temporarily replace Groff in the musical while filming during the month of November.
Jonathan Groff is remembering a scene he shot for the upcoming HBO adaptation of The Normal Heart. It’s his only part with Julia Roberts, and he doesn’t have a single line with her.
“She plays a doctor and I collapse on the street, and then they take me into her office and she’s like, ‘He’s dying,’” the actor recalls. “So I didn’t get to act with her because I’m, like, hyperventilating on a stretcher. I was foaming at the mouth. She was probably all, ‘This kid is really going for it.’ But she was really nice, very chill, very un-dramatic and easy.”
