Sometimes, Jonathon Groff’s wardrobe on the HBO series Looking is literally next to nothing.
The actor, in a recent panel discussion, shared how his nakedness and the simulation of certain sex acts is achieved.
For example, for those scenes where his character is being rimmed by another man, the show’s costume designer has made an ‘anal cover’ for the actor to wear.
‘The intimacy on Looking is challenging because we are in nothing but like a dick sock and an anal cover and our legs are in the air,’ Groff explains.
He adds: ‘I feel like in some ways those scenes are the most challenging and easiest at the same time.’
Looking, a dramedy set in San Francisco about a group of gay friends, premiered in January and has been renewed for a second season.
Groff stars with Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett as the three main friends whose lives and loves are focused on.
Groff recently had a small but memorable role in the film version of The Normal Heart which premieres on HBO last month.
