The first images from the set of Glee, American Horror Story, Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy’s upcoming HBO film The Normal Heart have landed online. Murphy directs the feature film adaptation of the Tony-winning Larry Kramer play of the same name, which chronicles the rise of HIV/AIDS among New York’s gay community in the 1980s. Kramer wrote the screenplay for the pic, which boasts an impressive ensemble cast that includes Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, Matt Bomer (White Collar), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), and Jonathan Groff (Glee). In these NYC set photos, we see Ruffalo and a blonde Kitsch sharing a scene together, as well as some possibly spoilery images featuring Kitsch and Groff on the street.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The Normal Heart will premiere on HBO sometime in 2014.
