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??
