Lea Michele, Jonathan Groff, and Others Attend The Normal Heart Premiere (PHOTOS)
Leave it to Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy to bring out some of the biggest names in Hollywood for the premiere of his latest project, The Normal Heart, airing on May 25 on HBO. HBO’s version of the Tony Award-winning play stars Matt Bomer, Julia Roberts, Jim Parsons, Mark Ruffalo, and a slew of other talented actors including Lea Michele’s best friend, Jonathan Groff.
The Larry Kramer work is an incredibly moving story about a gay activist who attempts to raise HIV/AIDS awareness during the early 1980s, and given the buzz Ryan’s adaptation has been getting in recent weeks, it makes sense that a myriad of big names came out to show their support.
In a addition to Lea and many of the film’s stars, the May 12 New York City premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater was attended by fellow Glee stars Darren Criss (Blaine) and Jane Lynch (Sue), American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and countless others.
