  1. I love Mindhunter and I also love It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and I have such a hard time at times telling Jonathan Groff apart from Glenn Howerton. 🙈

  2. Met Jonathan when he was at Spring Awakening and I was sure he was going to go far he’s sooo talented….
    He was quite nice at stage door
    Love Dominic as well since history boys, always good to see him and James together

  3. Dominic’s brother is right, Pet Shop Boys version is better than Elvis’ version. I’m a big fan of both artist too.

  4. Dominic Cooper talking abt complicated family-relationship stuff as if he wasnt in Mamma Mia, the pinnacle of complicated family-relationship stuff

  5. Thanks so much to whoever put subtitles, i had a really hard time understanding Dominic for some reason. Also I'm sure deaf/hoh people appreciate it even more 👌

  6. "Their dating lives" why would they lie to me so blatantly in the title, what the heck I thought they were dating I am dead

  7. Middle class Shameless – Jaysus Dominic is hilarious! "She's gone now" LOL – I wish he was on The Late Late Show more often. I absolutely LOVE the dynamic between him and James. I'd happily watch a full hour of just the two of them rambling about their quirky friendship. 😛

  8. DOMINIC PACKIN THE HEAT LIKE ALWAYS….AND HOW HE IS SITTING JUST SCREAMS BDE. Whoever gets to go home with all of that cuteness and manliness is one lucky SOB!

  9. I probably would fit right into that family but then again I grew up with more than necessary male cousins and my own brother who is younger to me. It's easier for me to understand type relationships. I mean me and my brother fight like we want blood. I have ran after him with hammer. So u can understand

  10. Dominic always looks way too comfortable sitting on this couch when he comes on the show. Must be a side effects of his long relationships with James.

  11. I just realized that I've never heard Dominic's actual voice before. I've only heard him in character as Howard Stark in Agent Carter, so hearing him talk in this clip completely threw me off. First of all, I didn't know he was British, and secondly, he talks in a completely different tone and register as Stark, so listening to his real voice is breaking my brain a bit. 😀

    Nevertheless, love him in Agent Carter. 🙂 And Jonathan Groff always amuses me. He's so fun. <3

  12. Jonathan is weird to me. He’s so good at acting that whenever I see him outside of Mindhunter it’s like he doesn’t exit.
