"Lana was like, 'Hmmm, take off your socks. I think you’re gonna be a no-socks guy. I've just decided this guy is a no-socks guy'"

Vulture interviewed Jonathan Groff about Matrix Resurrections:

At the beginning of the movie, when you’re just playing Thomas Anderson’s business partner, you get to be this slimey tech guy, which I realized was sort of the worst possible future for Patrick from Looking.

I didn’t think of that, but like if things didn’t work out and he went to the dark side, he would maybe be that way, yes. That’s funny, because when I went to San Francisco to meet Lana, we met at the Fairmont Hotel, and there was a poster of Looking there with my face on it, because we shot the show there. She didn’t acknowledge the poster specifically, but we did talk about how much San Francisco meant to both of us.
