The big-screen sequel to Frozen is still a ways away, but that hasn’t stopped Disney from pumping the property wherever it can: Last Sunday’s season finale of Once Upon a Time (broadcast on Disney-owned ABC) even ended with the introduction of Elsa, and the show’s producers promise the ice queen will be a prominent character next season. Last night at HBO’s premiere of The Normal Heart, Vulture told Jonathan Groff (who voiced strapping mountain man Kristoff in Frozen) about the twist OUaT ending. “That’s so crazy!” he said. “I didn’t know that. That’s so awesome!” Would Groff consider reprising his animated huntsman in the flesh, if the show asked? “I would, but I’m not as hot as my cartoon character,” he said. “It would be a big letdown. I’m not blond or six-foot-five.” Well, would he consider joining the inevitable Broadway cast of Frozen instead? “Yes,” he told us, “If they let me sing ‘Let It Go.’”
