Broadway fave Jonathan Groff will soon reach a whole new level of stardom when the new HBO series Looking debuts on January 19. Much more than a gay-themed Girls or Sex and the City retread, Looking follows a trio of friends—Groff as awkward but adorable Patrick, Murray Bartlett as about-to-turn-forty Dom and Frankie J. Alvarez as struggling artist Augustín—grappling with gay life in San Francisco. So, why should we care about these guys? Luckily, HBO released a video of the three stars chatting about why everyone—not just gay men—will relate to these characters. Check out the clip below and meet your new favorite TV buds.
