HBO's upcoming finale for Looking includes “the most intense
sex scene” he's ever done.
HBO abruptly canceled Looking after
its second season but promised a special to end the series.

successful restaurant, and Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez), who

Groff's video game designer character Patrick questioning whether he
should stay with his boyfriend Kevin (Russell Tovey) or pursue a
relationship with Richie (Raul Castillo).
