Whitney West: Jonathan Groff would make an amazing Fiyero, I think! Not only is he good looking, his voice is spectacular. @ctbilello: @playbill @WICKED_Musical Jonathan Groff!
Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff rose to fame playing the radical teenager Melchior Gabor in the Tony-winning musical Spring Awakening. The actor, who has gone on to success on the small screen in the television series "Glee" and "Boss," will appear in the HBO film adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart and "Looking," a new HBO comedy series about four gay friends. We would love to see him make the jump to a starring role on the big screen. Read the recent Playbill.com interview with Groff here.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
