Can’t beleive that unimaginative Antarctica dance is still doing its rounds. Some waste of grant money. Atleast I am glad Corey told the interviewer last time that he isn’t not a dancer. It’s about time he gives credit to the real dancers

You must be new here, dear. DLers have been assuming celebrities and PR flacks routinely post here to "spin" stories about them for a good 20 years now. Long before the "deep state" conspiracy theory was conceived, DL took it as a given that there was an unequivocal conspiracy on Hollywood's part to obfuscate the gayness of all celebrities generally and all gay male celebrities specifically. Since then it's morphed into an all-inclusive conspiracy theory that DL's favorite conversational topics are either being spun by publicists or, in this case, being stoked by one of the actual participants in question.
|by Anonymous||reply 15||09/24/2018|
DLers, catch me up here: I tried reading the last Groff thread, but it veered off-topic far too often.
I have a simple question: has [bold]ANYONE[/bold] ever actually [bold]confirmed[/bold] that he and this Corey person are, in fact, dating, or is this just another example of seeing two guys occasionally photographed together and leaping to the conclusion that the only possible explanation for it is them being lovers? (See infamous case in point, the "Toothy Tile" pairing of Jake Gyllenhaal and Austin Nichols.)
|by Anonymous||reply 16||09/24/2018|
R16 No, it’s not confirmed. Some guy on Instagram just claimed he overheard Groff in a restaurant talking about an international affair & Datalounge put 2 + 2 x 10 together & decided that Corey is the guy.
It won’t be confirmed unless Groff confirms it publicly or unless they are seen doing PDA. I don’t see how there’s any other way we’d know for sure.
|by Anonymous||reply 17||09/24/2018|
R16 Not officially confirmed, but Groff doesn't have social media, and Corey doesn' t post about his personal life on his profile. There is a LOT of legitimate evidence of the relationship if you go back and look at all of the threads.

R16 You will have to go back a few threads for specific examples of them spotted together. Maybe start with thread 13? I can't remember now but it was at least being drvated then. Sometime around January is when Corey was spotted with Jon the first time.

R16 Spotted at an event for Corey together (while Groff was working on Mindhunter, so he had to fly to London just to support him), Corey has liked a tweet that said they make a cute couple, there are photos of them together on instagram at a cabaret show, at the London Hamilton , etc.

Thank you, R17, for the reality check, and R19/R20 for confirming what I assumed: DLers once again making mountains out of molehills based on nothing more than sightings of the two in various places.
Btw Groff must be spending 4-5 months a year nowadays in Pittsburgh filming "Mindhunter." Has this Corey person been spotted *there*? If so, that should say something. It's not exactly a small town, and even my friends there have seen Groff out and about (either solo or with groups of friends) on a number of occasions. (One of them lives down the street from the flat he's renting, but I'm certainly not going to tell *you* bitches where it is!)

Also, I will say Groff flying to London on one of his rare weekends off to attend Corey’s dance film showing is fairly compelling evidence that there is more than friendship there. I’m just saying it’s not confirmed.

R77 Well yes Groff seems to like the oh-so-clever-and-hip type which fits Corey to a T. Groff enjoys his pretensions. He also prefers guys when they have a bit of mystery about them and are a bit of a rake. The kind of guy who has ghosts in his closet but love can reform.
|by Anonymous||reply 82||10/02/2018|
It has been rumored amoungst the NY dance scene that Corey screwed over his husband, pretty badly. And although generally liked across the pond amoungst his peers, he can be both duplicitous and pretentious. Throw in the resemblance to Raul and drama of the long distance love affair and you have the perfect fantasy husband for Miss Groff. No one too deep mind you, just cunning and egotistical. Groff seems to get off on being constantly but gently played.
Come to think of it Groff really does have a type. And even if that type of personality has spectacularly failed him in the past, I guess being mysterious and clever are still more important than not.
|by Anonymous||reply 83||10/02/2018|

I don't know R78 but I work as a dancer occasionally in shows in the city (not Broadway, I'm not that prestigious). Groff is well known for being very specific and selective about the guys he dates - dancers or actors only.. He has a rep of being sweet as pecan pie, very charming and slightly sexually flirtatious with just about everyone he meets. But privately he is notorious for blowing off guys he dates. He seems to either not respond when contacted after giving the impression of interest, or some he has dated then put on the back burner to "revisit" when he decided to have a relationship with someone, never to respond again. I am kinda glad I never met him. Not that I would have ever been attractive enough for him, but I would have hated to be one of the guys he shit on when he was playing around. He is not really know for being reliable, or even responsive when dating. Intense and passionate, but nothing deeper after that.
Given what I have also heard about Corey, they sound like a matched set. You reap what you sew as they say. Clever, witty, charming, the life of the party. Just nothing very deep or reliable. Anyway, that is the end of my stream of consciousness.

R85 Some guys are like that. They love the game so much, it becomes more valuable than reality. Groff is intensely passionate about acting, so much so that the act of performing is more valuable than the real relationship.
I like this "intense and passionate, but nothing deeper". That sounds like Groff and Corey as individuals. However we have nothing really to base anything on but their words, and actions, i.e. how they have treated others they dated or were married to. So unless someone gets to know them, only what they have done in the past reflects on who they are to date now.
Still think Groff is enormously talented. Corey, if the Antarctic disaster is an indication, not so much.

Well they have been seeing each other since last winter & arranging regular cross-continental trips to do so, so if they’re both “unreliable” then it’s quite impressive they’ve kept it up this long.

R87 Corey is not well respected among the NY theater and dance crowd. Some of it is jealousy for landing one of the most desirable actors available. But much of the negativity is just because he is not a very good choreographer. Jon should be able to convince a few friends to throw business Corey's way. And of course Corey can now capitalize on the talent Jon introduces him to and maybe one of them will give him a job. But without Jon, Corey would remain a minor player.
Here's hoping his faux humility keeps Jon fooled long enough to give him a real career. He just isn't very good at his job.

And WTF is it that someone cannot be both successful AND well off from their success. When the hell did it become a standard that you are ONLY worthy for Jon to date if you came from a poor background. We cannot all be Aladdin.
It is not a sign of superiority that Corey joined a dance company at a tender age. Most in the industry are very passionate about their work, have committed years and sacrificed much to do the work. Corey is no different than any other dancer/choreography in his passion for dance, just less talented and less successful at it than some.

Final thought on this ridiculous subject (why is Corey even mentioned except in passing?):
I personally know many very talented dancers, actors, musicians, etc. Who could blow out of the water some of the most popular and successful celebrities out there. Much of the time it is purely luck, being I the right place, or who you know.
I don't feel Corey has the "it" factor from what he has done so far, i don't care how cute or fuckable Jon thinks him. Love binds you somtimes. However since he now has Jon and his connections in his corner to help him, he may be more successful going forward. Just my 2 cents.

MAYBE, just MAYBE, he likes him because he's a good person/has a good personality??? You must have a really shitty view of Groff to think he's dating him for any other reason than he likes spending time with him because he genuinely likes who Corey is as a person. Look, he dated a famous/successful/wealthy guy (Quinto) before, and it didn't work. Maybe he needs someone with less ego and ambition (although I think Corey's projects are pretty ambitious) and more flexibility since Groff's jobs/projects are so demanding???

R114 I agree with you 100% that Groff is with Corey because of who he is as a person.
Don’t sweat the Corey haters too much. Literally anybody Groff dates or is rumored to date is never good enough for them. The person is always declared “ugly” & “unsuccessful”. And yet when you question them about who WOULD be good enough for him in their eyes, they never have an answer. I can only conclude that they wish they were fucking him themselves & they will always be bitter & jealous toward anyone who is actually doing so.
Personally I think they make a cute couple. They look really happy.

R114 No one has claimed Jon ONLY likes Corey because he is not a successful or comes from poorer circumstance (tragic!). Of course there are other reasons. It is only that Jon chose the same type in past relationships - dancer/performer who is sociable, quick-witted, and ready for fun. We have also seen that during interviews Corey can suddenly be serious and thoughtful or be so cool and off-hand. He loves the right music, has the right opinions, and approaches everything as if it were challenging game. However these are all the same personality traits that Quinto had. So those factors play a huge role in who Jon takes seriously. The personality type must be like Quinto and the looks must be like Raul.

R120 Agree, but I would say it is Jon's bad judgement that leads him to waste years on wrong choices. When your standards are fixed, you get the same results each time. And I agree with the poster further up thread who said Jon hasn't learned anything since the last boyfriend for all of his big talk about being up for any type of guy. You either learn from your mistakes or you don't. Here's the previous pattern:
Rushes headlong into a relationship. - Check
New guy must be clever and witty but cool and aloof at the same time. Makes Jon work for his affection. - Check
Must sound intelligent; thoughtful opinions on everything. - Check
Must appear to be a social justice warrior in some capacity. - Check
Must allow Groff to dominate and appear to be in control whenever possible. - Check
*New - Must look almost exactly like Raul, even in height. - Check
All the same as ZQ, except for looking like Raul.

Would not surprise me if they move quickly. Think that would've been the case even if Corey was an American. It's the Groff way. Who's to say Corey hasn't moved already? Maybe bit by bit? No shit. If they keep pace, they'll be engaged before Lea gets married. I'm calling it.

He seemed to live his best life before, but definitely is now. Corey was the missing component. Don't know how often I'll come back to this thread. It's been drama for awhile (will he ever find someone dope & lasting, does he want to, who's this new guy). Now that it's all been answered, I'm content.
There's one thing I wish some people I knew could take from Groff. Even when he appeared to look for love himself, he always seemed genuinely happy for couples around him instead of being an envious shit. When you put good energy into the world often times it comes back to you. And it's his time. Full stop.
|by Anonymous||reply 156||10/06/2018|
R156 So Corey is the missing link? Finally Jon has the love of his life? Maybe so and your hope that this is the one will complete the fantasy love story here.
However when things move this fast they always end just as fast. And when you date a cheater. you will be cheated on. It is just the way of the world. It may be years of his life gone until it happens, but Jon still does not have the sense to choose a healthy guy. It sucks to watch him wind up with the same shitty type he has dated before, just so he can partner up with someone cleverer than him. Hopefully he will still have a career to lean on. And hopefully there will never be children involved. What a logistical mess that would be.
At least Corey will again get a green card out of it. And get to live in the spotlight with Jon so he can further his career. Which was probably the point of the exercise all along, and all that mattered to Corey the first time.

People grow, people mature, people change: especially for someone/a relationship you don't want to fuck up. Corey would be an idiot if he cheated on Groff. But if he did, that's the risk we all take in relationships , right?
Groff does seem happy for everyone around him. With relationships, careers, success. He seems like he's always supportive of people he works with, so that must extend into his personal life. Happy he has found someone who seems pretty serious.

R176 Not sure what you mean by "acknowledge their relationship publicly". Do you mean in an interview? Or if Groff brings Corey to a public event? Both of them don't post private things on social media, but you can connect the dots through their friends' social media.

R179 I agree, marriage is jumping to conclusions. The only reason I think that may be an option sooner than later is because if Corey doesn't get a long term Visa, he would need to marry Groff to stay in the US permanently. But who knows, they might want to be bi-continent. I can see Groff being okay with going back and forth.
All we know for sure is that they are definitely serious. He hasn't been committed to one person like this since Quinto.

R220 there has been repeated talk about “Corey fangurls” in this and previous threads. No one is really “harassing” people who don’t like Corey either, they have just asked for proof or evidence of the unfounded claims that he cheated on his husband or used him for a visa and so far no one can provide it. They just keep making stuff up.

R234 anyone who has receipts would probably not show them. Give Ven that it would out who they were to Jon and/or Corey. But there have been similar accusations about Corey elsewhere.
R233 No one said he was back in London. Pretty obvious though he abandoned his London-based business once he started living with Jon. Maybe he is hoping his connections through Jon will give him a permanent visa and business here. The you by the way goes on without him once his choreography was trains and released. He might meet up with them now and then however he has been hanging out wherever Jon has been for the past few months while the tour has been elsewhere.

Since it's dead in here, I'm gonna bring up something I was thinking about.
The second season of Mindhunter is set near Pittsburgh, and is about race/KKK/accepting more black FBI agents. Really interested to know how that whole production is feeling after what is currently going on in our country right now. It must feel really surreal acting in a show set in the early 80's, and dealing with issues that are relevant even today. What I'd give to interview Groff /Holt about all of this.

Unless you are someone prominent like Andy Blankenbuehler or Bill Jones or Kathleen Mardhall, etc, who can afford to be unemployed for long periods, you are either not trying hard enough or not very good. He hasn't even taught a class since the ballet ensemble show went live.
Instead he spends his time as Jon's butt boy. But perhaps Jon wanted me to this way. Someone completely dependent on him so he can support them both and therefore be in control.

There are way too many new interesting new faces joining the industry everyday. These new people have a fresh new attitude, they are on social media reaching out to their audiences and they are just more interesting. Groff and his old ways are lackluster and seriously his conservative approach is on the decline. Trying to be mysterious at 33 by seemingly being off social media is a lame excuse.

R364 Groff has a successful TV show with Emmy prospects (if Netflix ever times & promotes it adequately) and can work on Broadway forever. Perhaps that is as much as he wants.
I agree that any actor is limiting themselves by not using some kind of online promotional outlet but it must be important to him. We know he specifically talked to his agent about it. It is just how he is and I don’t think he will change.

R365 no one I know is watching Mindhunter. It really isn’t a successful show. Sure he landed a Netflix gig and that’s noteworthy but it isn’t something written about type of show. It is just one of the shows out there.
He is getting too old for his game. Being on broadway forever isn’t necessarily the greatest plan. Entertainment industry is evolving. Broadway is shrinking. It is so geographically limiting and the exorbitant ticket prices are not for all. So in the end it has a limited audience and too many are Revivals which just flop. He should be taking his image far more seriously. Thiis is just an personal observation.

R366 No one I know is watching it either. Part of the problem is Mindhunter is unoriginal, but I would go a step further and say Jon is a poor choice for the role. With the exception of Cameron Britton, the show has received limited attention. And I agree on your observations about Broadway as there is limited success for actors in supporting roles unless they have another source of income to supplement. Since Jon has not been cast as the lead in a Broadway show since he was in his early 20's, he is clearly not sought after for those spots. His only steady job right now is Mindhunter which gives him work every 2 years.
I agree him not being on social media is foolish. He is too old now not to use every tool available to him, working his own publicity. Being coy worked in his youth but now he has to keep being attractive to casting agents and boost his popularity. Part of what attracts them is not just skill based.
Unless the goal is ultimately leave the industry in a few years and maybe just settle in to teaching instead.

R370 I don't know anyone who's on the edge of their seat waiting for Mindhunter's return. Still respect who he appears to be as a person and for his talent (singing & acting), but this isn't the best role, which is unfortunate. Kudos for acquiring the lead on a Netflix show, but if few are checking for it what does that really do? Groff shines when a meaty role calls for him to either heavily emote (SA & Looking) or is fun/lightweight (Frozen & Hamilton). Why Fincher opted to choose him for a character devoid of any personality or emotion is beyond me. While it's clear Groff is grateful to do something completely different, it isn't working. And it takes so much time to tape, it halts add'l opportunities. Netflix checks are amazing for an actor, but wonder about his next move if (when) the show is cancelled. Would love to see him at the helm of The Bobby Darin story on Broadway. Role was perfect for him & could be the next big musical. He could potentially win a Tony with that one. But if that flopped? He would need to take any good role available as his best acting days would be behind him. Though one would hope he's set himself up well with that Disney money (Frozen, Frozen 2, Frozen video game). And if he gets even one percent of the money that brings in, he'll maintain some financial freedom.
It has less to do with social media. Rami Malek (Mr. Robot/Bohemian Rhapsody) is an extraordinary actor w/ a miniscule social media presence and his career is definitely in full stride.
|by Anonymous||reply 374||11/24/2018|
Rami Malek is willing to work with horrible predators like Bryan Singer on awful movies, in order to make a name for himself. I would not like Groff to emulate that type of career.
|by Anonymous||reply 375||11/25/2018|
R375 Doubt that. Singer was yanked off the project when all the crap came down. Another director completed it. Also, Rami may be critically acclaimed but he isn't a huge star. If he signed a contract on a film, he doesn't have the pull to get someone yanked off a film bc he doesn't like them.
Let's not go down this road. Disney has conservative backers who strongly align themselves with Trump/conservatives. Not a fan of Groff working for them, but recognize actors don't have that much pull and have their own bills to pay. See how muddled the water can get.
|by Anonymous||reply 376||11/25/2018|
R375 There's no need to tear down one actor to lift up another. Rami Malek is also talented and THAT is how he's made a name for himself. He won an Emmy for Mr. Robot with Sam Esmail directing.
This is a Groff thread and all, but your comment was high school grade. He doesn't need to emulate any actor. Simply pointing to another actor who isn't a fan of social media that's doing just fine.

So much ignorance in this thread. Wishing his show will get cancelled so he can do a Broadway show and make a quarter of the pay? Insanity. Regardless of whether or not you liked it, Mindhunter got generally positive reviews and it seems to be a passion project for David Fincher, who came back to direct the second season (he never does this). It's not going anywhere and season 2 is already getting a lot of hype from Fincher fans - the show casting the same actor who played Manson in the Tarantino films to reprise his role made headlines.
It's one thing to shit on Groff's career, but at least be factual.

R376 Singer has had a public reputation as a sexual predator for YEARS, long before Malek signed on for that movie. Singer was first sued for sexual abuse on APT PUPIL, and there have been more lawsuits since. Malek knew that and chose to work with him anyway.

R378 No one said they wanted the show to be cancelled and for him to go back to Broadway. As usual you did not read to the end of each post and have gone off on a delusional tantrum.
As for it getting good prress, sure, but very little good press is out there. And there are very few fans just based on lack of social media interest alone, not to mention how few interviews were given. As compared to say Looking which seemed to be talked about every where you turned.
Of course Fincher would go back. He is usually supportive of his movies/shows. Does it deserve a third season? No. Two seasons will be enough.

Rolling Stone magazine just named Mindhuter one of the top 20 streaming shows. Groff went on three talk shows for Mindhunter and none for Looking, unless you count WWHL. I know at least a dozen people excited for Season 2. So I wouldn't say Mindhunter deserves to be cancelled after a second season, until we at least see the second season. I don't love Mindhunter as much as I did Looking, but all of this negativity seems to be what killed Looking in its tracks, and now everyone wants it back.

R382 So the work he'd done previously, his Emmy win, and his actual acting should all get overlooked because he worked with Singer? Ok. Just hope you're not a fan of any movie connected to or any actor, producer, or crew member who worked with Singer (and he's worked on a lot). That also applies to Harvey Weinstein, Casey Affleck, Woody Allen, and Roman Polanski. Sadly, the list could go on and on.

Though always a fan, my objectivity has jumped up considerably. No matter how much respect you give, the moment you say what you'd like to see or maybe a role isn't the best fit for him, folks on here have a problem with it. As if saying anything other than 'JG is puppies & sunshine and can do no wrong' is a sin. SOME posters will jump to his defense as if he's a personal friend. An interesting response to say the least.

R388 I suspect some of them are friends. Or agents trying to cover their client. Or the man himself, or one of his chorus boys defending "their man". We have enough evidence from years past that any and all of these scenarios can happen with other actors on non-Groff threads. No reason to think Jon's thread is the exception.
Losing interest in him as well. I am finding that some of his roles are really not a good fit for him, or too much of a good fit that he might be playing himself. Just preference really. But when the superfans start attacking and putting you personally down for speaking up, it gets a little weird being in their echo chamber.

Meanwhile, back in the reality-based world:
1. "Mindhunter" may not have generated the kind of critical acclaim of something like "The Handmaid's Tale," but it's one of the highest-profile -- and most successful -- streaming shows in recent years. Factoring in all the shows it picked up from either abroad (e.g. "Black Mirror") or cancelled U.S. shows (e.g. "Arrested Development"), Netflix alone has aired over TWO HUNDRED original shows in recent years. "Mindhunter" was in the top 5% of those both in terms of visibility and reception, helped considerably by having David Fincher on board as a producer (along with Charlize Theron btw).
2. Groff did okay on the first season, but the show's breakout star was Cameron Britton, who played creepy serial killer Ed Kemper. And really, expecting the FBI agents -- in a show about SERIAL KILLER -- to be the most compelling characters is just silly. Even Jodie Foster's considerable thespian abilities were no real match against Anthony Hopkins.
3. Reality check, yet again: neither Groff nor "Corey" is posting in this thread, nor are either of them likely aware that DataLounge even exists. It's also much more likely than not that their relationship is garden-variety DL fanfic, and the two barely know each other in real life (and YES FANGURLS WE KNOW YOU THINK THEY'RE IN LUV AND WILL BE TOGETHER FOREVER AND EVER!!!). Groff is doing reasonably well for an actor who got his start on Broadway, having segued from "Glee" to shows that - whether you care for them or not - were both on prestige networks (HBO & Netflix).
4. Contrary to what some appear to believe, Groff is not making buckets of money from the show. NO ONE is making buckets of money in this ostensible "Golden Age of Television" other than the handful of creatives paid batshit-crazy amounts of money to produce shows (e.g. Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes). As a withering expose on the subject revealed recently, both (non-A-list) actors and crew are making jack, thanks to streaming seasons (and those for prestige cable dramas) typically only being 10-12 episodes every 12-18 months, versus the 22-episode order still standard on network TV. If it's any consolation, his former co-star Lea Michele is likely doing far worse, having had no regular work for the past two years (and no, that sad touring show with Darren Criss doesn't count).
5. Finally, Groff does not "suck" (as an actor), but he's also unlikely to be winning any Emmys or Oscars. He certainly does reasonably well in a given role, and contrary to the delusional hater-bullshit here, he's perfectly believable as a straight character on "Mindhunter." Given how much in-demand actors are across the board these days -- again, with hundreds of new shows being pumped out by Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, et al, SOMEBODY has to star in them -- his career is safe for the foreseeable future. Those here who are "losing interest" in him are mistaking their anecdotal experience as somehow being representative of the whole ... as is standard on DL. (*You* think something, so of *course* it must apply universally, since you could never be wrong!)
|by Anonymous||reply 397||11/28/2018|
R397 wait...when did anyone say they thought Groff was making tons of money off MINDHUNTER? Or is that comment based on the weird ongoing idea in this thread that Groff is “paying for Corey”?
As for “barely knowing” Corey...I’m certainly not going to claim they’re soulmates headed for the altar, but acting like they’re strangers when they have been seen together for a year now, traveled to other countries together, and Corey has met Jonathan’s close respected friends & coworkers — is just not accurate. Can we please just acknowledge that they are boyfriends — no more, no less — instead of going to one extreme or the other?

R398, you are leaping to grandiose conclusions on the basis of a handful of Instagram posts. There is literally no proof whatsoever that they are in any way romantically involved -- and no, being in the same foreign country together at the same time doesn't count. Groff has said nothing about being "involved" with anyone, period ... nor have they been photographed together in a plainly "romantic" context ... nor have they been papped anywhere ... nor did Corey, to anyone's knowledge, even bother to visit Groff a single time during the entire 5-6 months he spent in Pittsburgh this year filming "Mindhunter."
I *might* buy that they're casual fuckbuddies and it *could* turn into something more if they, say, LIVED IN THE SAME COUNTRY, but since they don't, it's clearly not a "grand affair" or anything.
|by Anonymous||reply 399||11/28/2018|
R399 pictures of Corey in Pittsburgh at the MINDHUNTER wrap party can be seen earlier in this thread.
He also took him to lunch in New York with Murray Bartlett and Armistead Maupin, who he worships. He would not do that with a casual fuckbuddy.
Again, some moderation and reason in this thread would be nice. We can acknowledge that they are dating without saying it is casual sex or true forever love.
And Groff has barely ever spoken about any of his gentlemen suitors publicly. He rarely speaks much about his personal life at all. If you aren’t willing to put 2 + 2 together from obvious clues then what’s the point of even being in the GOSSIP thread about him. That’s why it’s called gossip.

R429, I've read the entire thread. The "evidence" of their involvement is flimsy enough that I wouldn't even describe it as anecdotal or circumstantial. It's based almost entirely on secondhand (and thirdhand) observations via various Instagram posts. As a 20-year DL regular, I've seen this same bullshit dozens of times, most infamously with the whole "Domlijah" and Toothy Tile business.
One commonality in nearly all such cases: DLers cherry-pick something they consider "proof" that a given twosome is romantically involved while simultaneously ignoring a MASSIVE amount of evidence suggesting the exact opposite. Right now it's the FACT that Corey flew to New Zealand, solo, for no apparent reason - as if it's somehow "normal" for couples (as in legitimate ones) to spend the holidays apart as opposed to with one or the other's family (or both). And yes, celebrities are "just like us!" in that regard. (Okay, actually I realize a lot of DLers are estranged from their families, thus representing the root cause of their myriad mental-health problems, but that's how it works in the normal world. Plus we already know Groff gets along with his family just fine.)
While I'm not one of the DLers who refuse to believe a couple is involved until they issue a public proclamation to the media about it, I can readily tell by this point when a DL contingent is overly invested in the mere *idea* of two guys being together, and in effect trying to make "fetch" happen - and that's precisely what's happening here.

How do we know they're not together now in New Zealand? Sure, Groff could be home in Lancaster now but he could just as easily be in NZ as we haven't see any evidence of Him in the city since he left Pittsburgh. Usually there are visits to plays, Lea and Lin are both in the city now, typically we'd see pics w them. But all of the most recent Instagram posts are w Corey at his side...the cast party, the Beyoncé concert, Lea's house, lunch w Armistead and Murray. Honestly, I don't care if he and Corey are together or not. Supposedly, according to the post from the lady in the dance studio we last saw Corey at, Corey is a resident choreographer at the RNZB, so maybe that's why he went back. But how do we know Groff isn't there or going there? I'm not saying they're getting married, and if it was a relationship, it could be over, but Corey being in pics whenever Groff had downtime from Mindhunter does suggest that they were at least dating.

R439 Exactly. If you don't want to believe all of the evidence, that's fine. All of the instas/posts are enough for me. He's introduced Corey to Armistaud and Lea, Corey's been at the Mindhunter wrap party in Pittsburgh (seriously who brings a fuck buddy /friend to meet the whole crew/production of your work), and Groff has flown to London to support him for some little event he held for his documentary.
You have a really traditional and hetero view of how couples "should" spend the holidays/christmas. I know plenty of people who spend the holidays apart - some are even married. If your families live on separate continents, it's fair to assume they'd want to spend time in their own countries - especially for the holidays. You're assuming shit based on nothing. There could be myriad reasons why Corey flew back. From what I gather he's extremely close to his Mom.
If you choose to deny all of the evidence, that's fine. Just remember we told you so.

R456 NAHH, Groff always talks about how he chose love over a career (in the Gavin days) in terms of coming out - I doubt he would deliberately be hiding this from the media. He's just not a media whore, he doesn't have social media, and Corey doesn't really talk about his personal life, outside of the random mention of being somewhere (at the same time as Groff). Corey will 100% be at Lea's wedding - no doubt.
|by Anonymous||reply 457||01/10/2019|
R457 I didn’t mean that he would hide it for any kind of career reason but simply perhaps that he might want to preserve his own & Corey’s privacy. He’s never been one to hide something for professional reasons, not since the Spring Awakening days anyway. But he’s obviously also a very private person by nature.
I guess we’ll find out soon enough, either way! I still don’t know when Lea’s wedding is supposed to be but I did see she had her bridal shower already so it must be getting close.

The bridal shower was right after they wrapped Mindhunter. I think he probably went from Pittsburgh to NZ to visit Corey at Christmas and then went home to Lancaster right after Christmas when he went to the theatre. This is all speculation based on Corey's posts to Instagram and Facebook on Christmas, but he seemed really happy. Also I think if he were close to NY he probably would have gone to Lea's shower, or would have at least visited with her.

Shame more photos have not been released by the guests themselves.

99% sure that Lea will plaster them on her insta soon.

It’s gross that she’s hiding them.

R592 Pretty sure she has a deal with People where she gave them first dibs on photos. She'll prob release more soon.

Wow, coordinated terrorist attacks in Christchurch NZ where Groff met Corey. Isn't Corey from there as well?

R594 Yes, Corey is from Christchurch.

I feel sorry for the Muslim community which is regularly harassed in NZ just like everywhere in white-dominated societies. Such a terrible tragedy.
Corey doesn't live there anymore so no need to clutch pearls. Also, he isn't islamic so he wouldn't have been in the line of fire regardless.

R574 it’s not unlike him since he joined MINDHUNTER. He didn’t do anything during the last hiatus and that was at least nine months. Possibly his contract with Netflix doesn’t allow him to do anything else. Or, maybe he just needs (and deserves) a break after a nearly year-long grueling shoot where he’s in almost every scene.

R596 Not clutching pearls, but I'm sure he's devastated knowing something that could happen where he grew up. Doesn't his family live there still? And who's to say he doesn't have Muslim friends or family?

Anyone whose hometown experiences a mass murder (especially in a country where they are very rare) is going to have some feelings about it.

Time to move to a new thread! Perhaps the next one could be... The Boyfriend Edition?
