It's going to be a VERY Jonathan Groff year for HBO!

The devastatingly sexy Glee star has already been cast in the network's new series about a group of gay men living in San Francisco, and now, he's joined Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer in Ryan Murphy's HBO original movie adaptation of the Larry Kramer-written autobiographical play The Normal Heart, about the HIV-AIDS crisis that plagued New York City in the '80s!

According to reports, Jonathan will play Craig, a victim of the disease and a lover of investment banker-turned-AIDS activist Bruce Niles, played by Taylor Kitsch!

Serious subject matter aside for a minute, you can't lie:

That's a seriously HAWT coupling, wouldn't you say?!

Regardless, this sounds like an incredibly powerful, emotionally-charged creative endeavor, and we cannot WAIT to see how the finished product turns out!

What do U think?? Are U excited for The Normal Heart??

    Why oh why do people keeping saying Jonathan Groff is sexy? He is weird looking and borderline annoying. Does Perez have a crush on him or something? I don't get it.

    They're finally making it into a movie? They've been trying to make it into a movie since 1986, when Barbra Streisand offered to direct it, but her and Kramer couldn't get past their egos to see eye to eye on the direction of the film.

    Ryan Murphy is so unfaithful to his other projects. He completely changed both Glee and Popular into after school specials and morality tales. He totally betrayed Nip/Tuck too and will probably betray American Horror Story because he's always looking for something new and never showing loyalty to his older projects….I really wish he wouldn't do that. He's not a closer.
