HBO new series Looking features three gay guys in San Francisco looking for love, hence the title Looking.
In episode three entitled Looking at your browser history, we go inside a bathhouse. Dom (played by Australia’s Murray Bartlett) goes to the baths and encounters Scott Bakula in the steam room!
Scott looks mighty fine for 60, and it is doubtful anyone would turn him down! If the steam room looks familiar it is because this scene was filmed at Eros in the Castro district. For those who don’t get cable, I’ll spoil the scene for you. There is NO bathhouse sex between these two. Just conversation.
Scott Bakula would tell Out Magazine about the scenes
This was as close as I’d ever gotten to a real bathhouse. Just hearing about it in my old days in New York in the mid-‘70s, you know that was a huge deal. That’s where Bette Midler started and that whole scene! My gay friends would be off to Sunday Tea, and then roll in at 9 the next morning after the bathhouse. But that was about as close as I ever got. But I thought this was a great scene, a great way to introduce the character. I love what that scene was about. But no, I wasn’t shocked. In terms of having my clothes off, I do that a lot.
