Jonathan Groff: Just Jared Spotlight of the Week (interview)

No Comments

Jonathan talks about Lea in his interview with Just Jared for Spotlight of the Week:

JJ: Do you see yourself working with Lea Michele again in the future?

JG: I hope so! I’m having dinner with her tonight and I see her all the time. I love working with her and it’s the same thing with Ryan Murphy. When you go back to work with someone that you’ve worked with before, there is a shorthand and an ease. With her and I, we’ve done such intense and intimate work together on Spring Awakening and then we had so much fun on Glee. I know that we’ll be in each others lives forever, but it would be fun to continue that creative collaboration as well.

JJ: Lea called you out on TV for not calling on her birthday last year. What did you do to make up for it this year?

JG: So she had a little party that I obviously attended. [Laughs] There is this nickname that a yoga teacher called us that we sort of latched onto, which we thought was really funny, and so I got t-shirts made of that for both of us to wear. You know how they make t-shirts for family reunions? I got t-shirts like that made, so that was my birthday present to her.

JJ: What was the nickname?

JG: I’m not going to tell you! [Laughs]

JJ: Speaking of Pennsylvania, Skylar Astin told us to ask you about when you guys took a trip up to Lancaster and to have you tell us what he did to make you stay up all night crying of laughter.

JG: [Laughs] Okay, I remember the trip… What he did? Oh, he has got his stories confused. Because I know now what he is talking about, but that happened on a different trip. When we went to Lancaster, we went as a cast. I went skinny dipping in my pool with my brother and John Gallagher Jr. Skylar was in bed, so that doesn’t make any sense for that, but what I think he’s trying to say is when we went with Lea’s family to the Hamptons. He and I and Lea and a couple of the other cast members were staying up till all hours and he had us laughing so hard because he was doing an impression of Jenna Ushkowitz [in Spring Awakening. She] is a cast member on Glee and was in Spring Awakening with us. It made us all hysterically laugh. She was there as well. That’s when he was doing it. But he got his stories a little confused so I’ve got to call him and call him out on that.

Roundtable Interview “Frozen”

No Comments

You’re friends with Lea Michele, one of your co-stars from Glee. What was her reaction when she found out you would be appearing in Frozen?

Jonathan Groff: She was really excited. I’m actually filming a television show in San Francisco right now. We had our screening for the film a few weeks ago in L.A., so I flew down. They were going to put me up in a hotel, but I stayed with Lea instead. They gave me the Kristoff doll when I was there, so I brought that home and showed her. She was so excited.

Have you told Lea any spoilers about the film?

Jonathan Groff: No, I haven’t told her any spoilers; I wanted to keep it a surprise for her. She knows Idina as well (from Glee), and she also knows Kristen from the whole entertainment world. I went with her to see Josh Gad in The Book of Mormon. So she’s pumped to see it

Important Site Changes (2013)

No Comments

After more than 2 years of running Lea & Jonathan Online, we have decided to make major changes to the site. We will no longer be running this as an actual site on both Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff! So, the site will still remain but will only be updated with strictly Lea and Jonathan news! So this will be like a press archive on Lea and Jonathan related articles, videos etc! The permanent url will be leajon.jonathan-groff.net (a sub domain of our other site, Jonathan Groff Network). So this site is now part of that site! You will also find majority of our gallery contents over at Jonathan Groff Network!

Please be patient. All news that were on the site of them are currently being reorganized! They will appear on the press archive shortly under the appropriate dates!
