Jonathan caught up with Michael Ausiello from TV Line to discuss the season one finale of “Looking,” thoughts on season two, and more. You can read the full interview below. If you haven’t caught the screen captures for the season finale, you can view them here. Enjoy!
“WTF?” has rarely been more valid a question than it is in the wake of the freshman season finale of HBO’s Looking. Off his impromptu tryst with his boss, will Patrick attempt to pursue a relationship with Kevin in Season 2? Or will he recommit – and profusely apologize to – his sorta-boyfriend, Richie?
For answers, TVLine turns to Jonathan Groff, the Broadway babe and Glee alum who plays the in-demand loverboy in the middle of the muddle. Not only does he make a case for Patrick and Kevin – and Patrick and Richie – he also cops to a crush on one of his co-stars, reveals how badly he was stung by early criticism of the show and marvels at the unexpected opportunity to enlighten his straight friends about gay sex. So yeah, all in all, it’s a must-read.
TVLINE | Before we get to the finale, congrats on the Season 2 renewal. Were you sweating it out?
Yes, we were. We’ve been dying to find out if we were going back since we left San Francisco, actually, because it was such a great experience. Since we wrapped the show, we’ve been keeping our fingers crossed for a Season 2 pickup, because we didn’t feel like it was done yet. The honeymoon was not over, and so we’re really excited to get to go back.
TVLINE | Do you have any idea how many episodes Season 2 will be?
It’s unclear yet how many there will be.
TVLINE | Fans are hoping for more than eight.
We are, too! [Laughs]
TVLINE | OK, about the finale, burning question — how the hell was Patrick able to resist Kevin for as long as he did?
[Laughs] Well, I think part of it was due to the fact that Kevin has a boyfriend… I also think Patrick was a little blindsided by Kevin’s interest in him. In the finale, when Kevin is sort of coming after him in the office right before they have sex, and Kevin is like, “I can’t stop thinking about you,” it takes Patrick by surprise. Patrick didn’t realize that Kevin was harboring that kind of feelings for him.
TVLINE | You and Russell Tovey have fantastic chemistry. Was there a spark there from the get-go?
I love him. You can’t work to create that. It was a relationship we had from the get-go. We both come from the theater world, so we have this similar way of working and relating to each other together on set. I adore him. I think he is so talented and I’m so happy he’s coming back as a series regular for Season 2. And Raul Castillo [Richie], who I’m harboring a huge real-life crush on… [Laughs] I’m happy that he’s coming back as well.
TVLINE | What was it like shooting the big Kevin-Patrick sex scene? It was pretty steamy.
[Laughs] Indeed. It was great! [Looking co-creator] Andrew Haigh directed that episode, and I love the way he [depicts] sex in film and television. I think that it’s very intimate and very realistic. He definitely goes for whatever feels the most real, and that was certainly the case in that scene. And Russell and I had been comfortable with each other by that point. It was quick — we didn’t take that long. It was that one shot, as you saw, and it was really special. I feel like I’ve had a lot of people — a lot of straight friends of mine that live in L.A. or New York who are liberal-minded and open and accepting — say that they did not know that gay men could have sex face-to-face until they saw the show.
TVLINE | Get out.
And that has been a huge revelation for me! And it’s certainly not like the intention of the show is to, like, educate straight people about how [gay people] have sex. But it’s obviously happening with my friends, and I feel like, “Wow, what an added bonus that we’re telling some things that maybe people didn’t know.” Isn’t that crazy?
TVLINE | That’s crazy. It’s hard to believe.
Go to dinner with some straight friends and ask them about it, because I am shocked at the number of friends who live — like I said — in L.A. or New York who didn’t know that.
TVLINE | After Patrick and Kevin slept together, Patrick asks, “Now what?” And Kevin says, “I don’t know.” It seemed rather dismissive.
Yeah, I agree! [Laughs] It did seem like it is a very surprisingly dismissive moment! Maybe he is dismissive because he doesn’t want to acknowledge his feelings, like, “Oh s–t, I really feel something for this guy,” or “You know, now I f—ed him and it’s done, I’m over it.’”
TVLINE | What do you think was going through Patrick’s mind when he saw Richie waiting for him at the end?
It’s incredibly complex. There is a lot of guilt and confusion happening. It’s also sort of clear and unclear what Richie is saying in that moment. He says, “You know, I think I’m falling in love with you,” which makes me feel emotional just reciting the line that he says. I think he’s just so heartbreaking in that scene when he takes off his hat; he is so adorable. Is it a break-up moment? Is he walking away from him? Is this the end? There are a lot of things happening there.
TVLINE | The fact that both he and Russell are coming back as regulars suggests that the triangle is going to endure.
I imagine that the triangle will be further investigated for sure.
TVLINE | Who are you rooting for Patrick to end up with?
Both of them offer something really different and unique to Patrick. I love that Kevin and Patrick have a sort of effortless connection, and both have the same sort of job. I also love the chemistry between Patrick and Richie. And I love that they come from different places and are finding a common ground and finding a way to connect with each other. And I also think that Richie is in a place where he is ready right now, and Kevin still has a boyfriend. I don’t know; it’s hard. I feel like you could fight both sides, which is what makes it interesting.
TVLINE | After the first episode aired, there seemed to be a little blowback from the gay media about the show, with some complaining that it was too boring, slow-moving. Did that bother you?
This show, more than anything I’ve worked on, I feel incredibly, personally connected to. So to hear resistance or to hear negative comments in any way, it’s sort of like a punch in the stomach. But we were also expecting a complex reaction, because there was so much expectation and so many ideas of what it was going to be before it aired. And hopefully, now people are seeing it for what it is and connecting to the characters and connecting to the stories. And certainly, the good news for us is that the numbers have continued to grow each week, which is such a relief and really exciting. It sort of makes up for that initial negative reaction. To know that people are really starting to connect with the show and starting to watch it and starting to get invested, it’s all we ever really wanted. We really fell in love with the characters while we were working on the show, and we really fell in love with each other, and it’s nice to now see people starting to embrace them and embrace the style of the show.
TVLINE | Lastly, are we ever going to hear Patrick sing?
[Laughs] I don’t think so. I feel like Patrick would be a terrible singer, so it would be fun to sing badly.
Hey everybody! I just updated the gallery with 734 HD screen captures of Jonathan from the season one finale of “Looking.” What did you guys think of the finale? Leave a comment to share your thoughts. Now that “Looking” is over for the season, I will hopefully be diving in and updating the gallery with some new (and old) things. I hope you enjoy and keep checking back for more updates!
Jonathan Groff caught up with The Hollywood Reporter this past Friday (March 7) to discuss the season one finale of “Looking” and more. You can read the interview below:
“I’ve been dying to go back to San Francisco,” says Jonathan Groff, who plays Patrick in HBO’s Looking. Now he will, with the gay-centric show from Michael Lannan and Andrew Haigh officially renewed for a second season and production kicking off this summer.
The season one finale airs on March 9, and Groff spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about what to expect, why Patrick singing would be horrendous and that drunken kiss between Patrick and Russell Tovey’s Kevin. “That kiss was done in so many different ways. We did a lot of takes,” Groff reveals.
First off, congratulations on season two.
Thank you. We are so stoked. We’ve been keeping our fingers crossed for a season two since the day we wrapped. We had so much fun, it’s ridiculous. We try to get together every week and watch the episodes together. I’ve been dying to go back to San Francisco. I had celebratory drinks in New York with one of our producers Sarah Condon, Murray [Bartlett] and Frankie [J. Alvarez], and with our writers in L.A. and Michael Lannan. And two weeks ago in London with Andrew Haigh.
And congrats, too, on Frozen at the Oscars.
I’m in an afterglow moment of Frozen winning. “Let It Go” is still stuck in my head. I was with my friend yesterday saying, “How can we not get this song out of our heads?”
For Looking’s finale, do you think Patrick ends up in a better or worse place after season one than when we meet him?
When we meet Patrick, he’s awkwardly in the woods, uncomfortable but trying to expand and find a new side to himself and putting himself out there. We see a huge evolution in him reflected through his relationship with Richie (Raul Castillo), and then with Kevin, there’s a lot of sexual tension. By the end of the finale, he’s gotten himself into a really tight spot because he’s dealing with the repercussions of letting himself go. He went from not having a boyfriend to having these two amazing men interested in him, and they are two very specific, wonderfully confusing relationships. He doesn’t know where to turn.
And everybody else?
Everything definitely comes to a head, and the characters take a giant step forward. Whether that’s for the better or worse, it’s hard to say.
You and Russell Tovey have such chemistry. Did you two know each other before shooting?
I met Russell on Broadway when he was doing History Boys, and I was doing Spring Awakening. I met him briefly then, but we officially met at the screen cast for Looking because we were both up for the part of Patrick. They loved him and wrote him this role, and from then we hit it off. We both come from similar acting backgrounds, from the theater and the stage, and we just get each other on a certain level. Also, luckily, we just naturally get along.
And then there’s the kiss from last week’s episode.
We did a lot of takes of that kiss. I didn’t know what was going to happen until I finally saw the episode because that kiss was done in so many different ways. I think the way they decided to do it was perfect. It’s fitting, especially considering the finale. You don’t want to blow your wad too soon, so to speak.
We’ve seen Agustin and Patrick come at each other this season. How do you think their friendship is able to endure so much?
I totally relate to their friendship. They’ve known each other for years, and I think, just like family, it’s one of those people in your life you can fight with who call you on your shit whether what they’re saying is true or not and can express openly their opinions to you. You can bounce back from fighting and be friends again.
And they bond over their love for The Golden Girls. So, Patrick is a fan. Are you?
Of course. You kind of have to be. I mean, it’s on all the time.
If Patrick is Rose, which Golden Girl are you?
I would say I’m a mix of Dorothy and Rose. I’m a good hybrid. You don’t want to be as naive as Rose, so you don’t want to be one hundred percent her.
Patrick’s confrontation with his mom, also last week, was interesting. It read a lot into his character.
That was the most rewritten scene of the entire series because everybody had an opinion of what the mom would be. It came out complex and not one-note; she’s not just the mom who’s completely accepting of her son, but she’s also not the mom who isn’t accepting. She’s in a grey area, which I find really interesting because while Patrick may be getting some resistance from her about being gay, he’s also projecting a lot of his issues on to her at the same time. Perhaps he sees himself in his mother.
What about the moment in episode six in the park where Patrick does that prance? Some have described that as self-loathing.
In that moment, he’s expressing his version of what it means to be over-the-top and gay, but I think the bigger picture is asking, what is queer? How do we fit into the gay community? I feel like that moment was an exploration of that. We’re not meant to state what gay men are like now; it’s meant to start the conversation, not put anything into stone of what a gay series is.
Where would you like to see Patrick go in season two?
I’d love to spend more time with Agustin and Dom because in the first season they spend a lot of time apart. And I definitely want to go deeper into the triangle of Patrick, Kevin and Richie. They have both been upped to series regulars for season two, so I think they’re going to explore more of that, obviously.
Would you ever like Patrick to have a secret singing talent, to get some singing into the show?
I think Patrick would be a terrible singer, actually. I have an instinct that he is the kind of person who would get super drunk and sing Madonna at karaoke, but it would be horrendous. So that would be fun.
You’ve had a lot of guest directors this season. Dream guest director for season two?
I had a really amazing experience with Kyle Patrick Alvarez on C.O.G. I would love for him to come do an episode.
In terms of the gay community, do you feel a sense of importance to the show getting renewed?
I think we do feel that. There hasn’t been a show in a long time with a bunch of leading gay characters also played by gay men in certain roles. The audience is growing week to week, so I think it’s amazing for the community for sure.
Hey everybody! I just updated the gallery with 590 HD screen captures of Jonathan from tonight’s all new episode of “Looking.” What did you guys think of the episode? Leave a comment to share your thoughts. Enjoy!
- Looking (2014 – ) > Season 1 > Screen Captures > 1×07 – Looking for a Plus-One
“Looking” is no one-season stand for HBO. The pay cabler has renewed the dramedy about three gay friends in San Francisco for a sophomore year.
“Looking” premiered last month to a small audience, but has grown its audience with each of its last three episodes. The pickup comes as HBO sorts out its comedy slate with a renewal last week for “Getting On,” and cancellations after maiden seasons for comedies “Hello Ladies” and “Family Tree.”
Actors Lauren Weedman, Raul Castillo and Russell Tovey have been upped to series regular status. Jonathan Groff, Frankie Alvarez and Murray Bartlett play the show’s core trio.
Series was created by Michael Lannan, who originally wrote it as a feature prospect. He exec produces with showrunner Andrew Haigh and Sarah Condon.
Production on the next batch of episodes is slated to begin later this year in San Francisco.
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 undramatic and easy.”
The same could be said for Groff. The affable Pennsylvania native got his start on stage, nabbing a Tony nomination for his role in the 2006 Broadway musical Spring Awakening before battling it out with New Directions on Glee, portraying a young David Sedaris in C.O.G. and voicing Kristoff in Disney’s hot winter hit Frozen. Now the actor plays Patrick, the charmingly clueless lead in the new gay-friends-living-in-San-Fran series Looking, also on HBO. Will there be foam? Probably, but only if it’s at a party.
Chris Azzopardi: With Looking and The Normal Heart, it must be nice knowing that HBO is gonna pay your bills for at least the next year.
Jonathan Groff: (Laughs) Right? It’s great. But I’ve already been paid for those jobs in 2013!
Q. In the pilot’s opening scene, after a phone call interrupts a hand-job hookup, you tell your friends you worried it was your mom calling. Has your own mother seen the show?
My mom has always been really supportive of my work. When I was doing Spring Awakening she took bus trips of people to come and see the show – like, seriously, 40 people on a touring bus up from Pennsylvania. That was before she had even seen it, so she was shocked when she saw the sex and the nudity and me hitting Lea Michele with a stick, but she obviously enjoyed it … because there were three more bus trips after that! So she overcame the awkwardness of seeing my butt on stage, but ever since they cast me in Looking, the big question in my family has been: “Are they gonna watch it or not when it comes on TV?”
When I came home for the summer to Pennsylvania, I brought the pilot home on DVD and I just said, “I don’t know if you wanna watch this or not, but I feel like if you do watch it, you probably won’t wanna watch it with me in the room.” I think that really freaked them out. (Laughs)
Q. Director Andrew Haigh, who also did the 2011 gay indie drama Weekend, has a knack for capturing real moments on camera. How do you think he’s accomplished that in Looking?
I could spend hours talking about Andrew Haigh. I saw Weekend and was like, “Wow, somehow he’s made a gay movie that feels universal.” I feel like whether (the characters) were gay or old or whatever, he could take any story and humanize it. He’s somehow able to catch really human moments.
I would be done with work some days and Frankie (J. Alvarez), Murray (Bartett) and I would look at each other and say, “Did we even act today?” It felt so much like us hanging out that it didn’t feel like we were “acting.” It speaks to the energy of his movie Weekend, and also to the energy of our show. It was really unlike anything I’ve ever worked on before.
Q. For Looking, what’s expected of you sexually and what are you not comfortable doing on the show?
Seeing Weekend and knowing Andrew Haigh was attached to direct the show, I was like, “OK, I feel 100 percent comfortable to sign that nudity waiver and do absolutely anything.” I signed on before I really even knew him. I was like, “Yes, whatever, I’ll do anything.” Also, from years of being in Spring Awakening, I’ve built up a tolerance for acted intimacy. (Laughs) It doesn’t freak me out. And I don’t wanna give the story away, so I’m not gonna tell you the guy who I get naked with.
Q. I hope it’s your boss.
(Laughs) I know! He’s cute, right?
Q. What do you have to say about the show being called a “gay version of Girls” – which, by the way, I don’t think is accurate. Your boobs don’t look anything like Lena Dunham’s.
(Laughs) I love that. It’s about a group of friends in the way that Girls is about a group of friends, but the tone, writing and acting are totally different. I do think if you enjoy Girls you will enjoy Looking, because it’s about relationships and trying to find love and your place in the world.
Q. When Queer as Folk aired in the early 2000s, the show reflected how anti-hair the gay community was. Body hair wasn’t as accepted in the gay community as it is now. And Looking and Weekend really represent the zeitgeist in that regard. How do you feel about Looking embracing a hairier man?
The more natural the body, the better. What they’re trying to do in Looking is show as many types of people and as many different types of bodies as possible, and also to stay true to San Francisco. And there’s a lot of facial hair and body hair in San Francisco!
Q. How much do you relate to Patrick and what’s going on in his life?
At the first audition, because I knew Andrew’s work, I knew the lines but I didn’t do a lot of emotional preparation. I didn’t even say the lines out loud until I was in the room with him, because I wanted to find it in the moment. The first time I did the audition scene – the scene on the train where I meet Richie (Raul Castillo) – I started to get hot, but not in a sexy way. I got nervous-hot. I started sweating and blushing and I felt immediately, in the audition room, like, “I know who this guy is. I feel so connected to his social anxiety.”
Q. What shows and films did you connect with as a gay man who was figuring it all out
I remember being in eighth grade and seeing the billboards for Will & Grace – and then, there was so little gay anything. Not as much gay press, not as many out gay actors or gay material to watch, certainly not on network television. Any sort of shred of people being gay was like, “Oh my god, look at that. Is that me? Is that who I am?”
Even though I was not out in high school I knew that I was gay, and seeing that billboard and watching the show, even though I didn’t really feel like I was a Will or a Jack – I didn’t necessarily connect these characters to me – but just to see some gay characters on TV was great. It made me feel less alone.
As far as Looking is concerned, the story is very specific to Michael Lannan, our creator, and his group of friends. When they were auditioning for the show, they had pictures of his friends on the casting board to say, “This is what we’re looking for.” It’s very specific to his experience in San Francisco, but the gay community will hopefully still embrace the fact that there are gay people on TV in the way that I watched Will & Grace growing up.
Q. Because of your role in Looking, how do you feel about possibly being the new poster boy for the gay community in the way Jack and Will were?
I feel so excited to be a part of a show that could potentially be a great moment for the gay community, because it’s crazy how few shows there are where there are a lot of central gay characters. As an actor you sort of become the face of whatever you’re working on, and I feel really lucky to be a part of this specific show because I believe in it so much as a television show. I’m so proud to be a part of this show.
Q. Maybe Patrick will inspire some kid to feel less alone.
Yeah, totally. That would be amazing. I mean, that’s so cool. Yeah, that’s like beyond.
Q. In addition to playing gay in Looking, you also played gay in C.O.G., an adaptation of David Sedaris short stories, and you’re starring as a gay man in The Normal Heart. Are you worried about being typecast? Or do you think that’s no longer a concern for actors playing gay roles?
I don’t know. Only time will tell. For any actor, gay or straight, being typecast is the biggest thing you have to work against. When I did Spring Awakening in New York, it took a long time of auditioning and then I moved to L.A. to prove that I could do more than that. For any actor, you have to put in a lot of work to continually show people and the industry that you can do more. So if the show gets picked up season after season – which, god willing, I would love; that would be amazing and I would want nothing more than that – I’m also ready to take on the challenge of trying to bust out of a role if I get attached to something specific. Call me in 10 years, but I feel so excited to just continue to challenge myself.
Q. Can we get Lea Michele on Looking? I mean, you did Glee, so I think it’s only fair.
(Laughs) Oh my god, I would love that! I showed her the first episodes when we took a little trip to Mexico recently and she watched them all again a couple nights ago with her mom. She’s so excited. It would be so amazing to have her on.
Q. Everyone’s always saying how you’re the most charming man ever. But what sets you off? What makes Jonathan Groff a living hell?
Oh, good question. When we were doing Spring Awakening, I had to do this beating scene with Lea where I got really angry. In early days of rehearsals, Michael Mayer, our director, screamed at me, “Seriously, you’re like the most everything-happens-for-a-reason person I’ve ever met. What makes you angry?! I don’t get it.” And I said, “You, when you belittle people!” Which is what he was doing to me in that moment. He was thrilled to get a rise out of me and help me finally get there. But here’s what I hate: I hate when you’re at dinner with a couple who are dating or married and they belittle the other person in front of a group. It’s like nails on a chalkboard. I f@$#&*g hate that.
Q. And you just dropped the f-bomb, so I know you really mean it.
(Laughs) Yes! I hate that! I honestly hate that in any way, shape or form – with teachers, directors, producers, friends or anyone that is talking down to me or down to someone I’m with. It really pisses me off.
Q. As a Disney fan, was the experience of voicing Kristoff in Frozen surreal for you?
Yeah, I was Mary Poppins for Halloween, I was Peter Pan, and I grew up watching Disney movies.
Q. Do you see “Let It Go,” the film’s musical climax, being done by drag queens?
Oh my god, completely. It’s like a gay anthem. I asked (composers) Bobby (Lopez) and Kristen (Anderson-Lopez), “Did you intend to write a gay anthem? Because I’m pretty sure you did.” They’re like, “No; honestly, when we wrote that song we were like, ‘We’re gonna go to a room right now and get really in an emotional place and write this ballad that is just true and honest and real.’” So they did not intend to write a gay ballad – but I think they did anyway!
Q. You worked with Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo on Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s 1985 play The Normal Heart, which airs in May. I mean, no big deal or anything.
I know, it’s crazy. When The Kids Are All Right came out, I saw that movie three times in the movie theater and I’m so obsessed with it and I’m so obsessed with him (Ruffalo) in it. Like a crazy person, I cut out a picture of him in a magazine – I’m not even kidding, I never do this – and put it on my dressing room mirror because I was like, “That’s who I wanna be.” I just admire him so much. And so in the movie I play his ex-boyfriend …
Q. Do you get to kiss him then?
We don’t have a kissing scene, which is unfortunate for me, because when the movie starts, we’re already exes. But just to be in the same room as him was a big deal for me. I fell deeper in love.
Q. What do you hope the takeaway will be for this generation of LGBT people who didn’t experience the AIDS epidemic like those who saw The Normal Heart in its original form?
We did this scene on the beach on Fire Island where they had a white party and there were extras in their early 20s – and I’m 28 – and we’re all having a blast, and then it hit a bunch of us as we were standing there that, in the story of this movie, most of these people are dead. Just standing there on the beach with everyone dressed in white being so young and having a great time – and thinking about what happened to the people who were dressed like this – it was really powerful and really affecting.
For my generation of people watching the movie, hopefully that will be like, “Oh, this was like us. This was us 30 years ago.” It’s so amazing that they’re turning that play into a movie, and that young people will watch. Maybe people who aren’t as connected to the AIDS crisis will be able to look back and see themselves in these characters and pass the story onto the next generation.
Check out the promo for next weeks all new episode of “Looking.” You can also view the press release for the episode below the preview to go along with it. There are only 2 episodes left of the season. So be sure to keep watching!
Episode #7: “Looking for a Plus-One”
Debut: SUNDAY, MARCH 2 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Already stressed that his parents will judge his choice of a partner in Richie (Raúl Castillo), Patrick (Jonathan Groff) reaches new levels of anxiety before his sister’s wedding, and runs into an unexpected guest when he arrives. Still unsure whether to pursue a business or personal relationship, Dom (Murray Bartlett) rebuffs Lynn’s (Scott Bakula) advice while in the throes of preparing for his restaurant popup. Unhappy with his photos of Frank (O-T Fagbenle) and CJ (TJ Linnard), Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) drops out of the art show, leaving Frank fuming.

- Looking (2014 – ) > Season 1 > Screen Captures > 1×06 – Looking in the Mirror
Jonathan did a short little interview with Bloomberg Business Week, where he talks about “Looking”, video games, online dating, and more. Check it out below:
How similar are you to your character, Patrick?
Patrick is examining how he fits into gay culture, and I continue to do the same. Like a lot of gay guys, I love the new Beyoncé album—but with clothes and design, I have a total blind spot.
What research did you do for the video game aspect of the show?
I knew nothing, except for Nintendo (7974:JP). My friend showed me a shooting game, and I also read this book called Extra Lives, which our creator, Michael Lannan, gave me. It talks about how gaming is an art form.
The character also spends a lot of time online dating, right?
They gave me a tutorial on OkCupid. As great as it is to get to know someone on the Internet, it freaks me out—not knowing what’s on the other side.
And then, in the show, you flirt with your boss.
You see them bond over their nerdy love of video games. What a great way for them to connect. There’s an intimacy that happens when you’re in a shared profession. Especially making games: It’s crazy hours, working so closely together.
I’ve added over 50 HQ photos of Jonathan attending recent events and appearances over the last few weeks.
