WATCH: Russell Tovey, Jonathan Groff Spy On Guys In “Ass-less Chaps”

If you suspected Patrick, Jonathan Groff‘s infinitely-relatable character on Looking, secretly has a pair of ass-less chaps in his closet, well, you’re incredibly intuitive. Russell Tovey, who’s joined the cast as Patrick’s boss Kevin, slyly gets the 411 on his employee while the two watch San Francisco’s famed/notorious/beloved Folsom Street Fair in this weekend’s fourth episode of the zeitgeisty HBO dramedy. “Are you into all this leather, whip, chain paraphernalia?” Tovey asks, obviously wanting the answer to be “yes, yes, YAASSS!” To borrow from an old, but still astute adage, the sexual tension between these two hotties is so thick you could cut it with a Ginsu.

    ugh, ALL chaps are “assless”.

    the ones that are NOT “assless” are called “pants”. shit that’s bad writing.

  • BlackHouston

    HAHAHAA @MikeE

    White people, y’all crazy!

  • robho3

    This show is boring as hell!

  • viveutvivas

    Well, yes, but I disagree that it is bad writing. It is a common expression, and useful, since many people not into leather don’t actually know what chaps are.

  • mcflyer54

    @MikeE: – actually they are only “assless” until you put them on. Then you ass fills the void that previously made them “assless”.

  • MikeE

    @mcflyer54: Which then wouldn’t make sense in the above scene, since they are looking at guys in assless chaps.. but if the guys are in the chaps, then they do contain asses making them “ass-ful”.


  • MikeE

    @viveutvivas: If I told you a “reedless sarusaphone”, would you know any more what it is?
    Calling them “assless chaps” doesn’t make what chaps ARE any clearer.

  • viveutvivas

    @MikeE, no, I think the “assless” makes it easier to infer what they are talking about if you have seen chaps before but didn’t know what they were called (or even if you haven’t seen them before), or if you have forgotten what exactly chaps are. Not everybody is a well versed in leather terminology as you appear to be.

    “Maybe I do, and maybe… I… do.”
    Love this show. Cracks me up that so many bitchy queens seem to drop by just to cluck their disapproval.

  • davincibarnette

    @mcflyer54: …and over half the time I’ve ever seen them and fucked them….they are indeed ASSLESS!! FLAT AS HELL!!

  • Niall

    I wonder if they’ll f**k which will lead Patrick to freak out and feel like he’s a homewrecker- as Russell Tovey’s character has a bf, then we’ll probably find out they’re in an open relationship or something which flusters Patrick
