Jonathan Groff, Denis O'Hare and "The Normal Heart" Cast Talk About How Larry Kramer is "Scary and Amazing"

Jonathan Groff, Denis O'Hare, Taylor Kitsch ("Friday Night Lights"), Frank De Julio ("Smash," "Gossip Girl") and Sean Meehan ("Blue Bloods," "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3") took to the red carpet at New York City's iconic Ziegfeld Theatre for the world premiere screening of "The Normal Heart."
