Jonathan Groff Butches It Up For “Frozen”

jonathan_groff_thDisney’s marketing machine is busy churning out interviews with the stars of their new Frozen movie, and we’re not even mad. Anything that gives us an excuse to talk about Jonathan Groff and Idina Menzel and Josh Gad is just fine, thank you.

In fact, if you’d told us twenty years ago that Disney would be placing interviews in Out magazine, we’d have been like, “uh huh, sure.” But sure enough, there’s Groff, chatting comfortably about his role in the film as a hunky heartthrob. It sounds like this particular Disney prince might be a little meatier than his predecessors? “He’s got my thighs,” says Groff. Lucky prince.

His character’s the strong silent type, a reclusive mountain man (with no beard : (oh well). He’s also playing straight, but his love interest is Kristen Bell, so you can probably just pretend she’s his hag.

Oh and then there’s this: as a kid, he used to pretend he was Mary Poppins. But as he gets older, his characters keep getting “more masculine,” so we’re looking forward to watching that career path unfurl.

Frozen opened in theaters today, and it better be freaking amazing because we don’t think we can bear to hate a movie with a cast this good.
