His sister Twinks was on an early Mary Tyler Moore episode.
R11 I don't think he's Jewish. I heard an interview with him where he said his surname was Scandinavian.
I too always made the mistake of thinking his name was Jewish, but it turns out Tveit is actually the name of a town in Norway.
R17 and R18, I was just going to say that! I'm Norwegian and Tveit is a very common surname in Norway. I'm pretty sure his family is from here.
Straight,nicest guy in the world,professional...so sad he got sucked into that dog of a show. Should have made him a star. He was amazing in Next To Normal,
I keep hearing conflicting reports about his sexuality. Anyone knows more?
He's a big pussyhound and a huge Republican supporter.
A girl I know was talking to him a few days ago (she wasn't flirting with him). Somehow, she understood from his friends that he was gay though.
r16 understands the glory that was the Datalounge of yore! Bless you sir. Bless you.
He has deep nasolabial folds, which were quite apparent on the Oscarcast.
Very young to have them. Unless...
[quote]Beautiful feets in CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. Unfortunately, they cut out the flip flop scene, but a picture remained outside the Rodgers Theatre during the run of the show
Why would the Richard Rogers Theater have a picture of Aaron Tveit's feet outfront in "Catch Me If You Can" when the show ran at The Neil Simon?
Very ambitious, very career conscious, lightly talented and aware of what sex can do to a career if one comes out as gay.
How is Tveit pronounced?

Why would the Richard Rodgers Theater spell its name incorrectly?
A gay Catskills friend of mine used to know him and he says he is straight but very comfortable with The Gays. A real mensch. He's from the Catskills area. And his last name is Norwegian so it rhymes with "weight."
All musical theatre actors are gay...I don't care how many women they marry.
I have loved him on stage in Next to Normal and the musical of Saved at Playwrights Horizons where he showed enormous charisma and talent but he was really disappointing in Catch Me if You Can. Not sure why, though it would certainly be easy to blame the lame direction and material. Still, I would have thought Aaron could rise above it. Maybe he was just miscast...he is really too wholesome and adorable to naturally play the scheming bad boy required of the Frank Abagnale.
He was certainly miscast in Les Miz, where he looked too young and innocent to be the student leader Enjolras. Again, the role requires more bad boy than Aaron naturally possesses. And his wig made him look rather dowdy and unprepossessing compared to all the other sexy student revolutionaries. He sang it well, though.
I hope he comes through on his new TV series.
He was stiff and looked like a deer in the headlights during his time on GOSSIP GIRL - I doubt if he'll be any better on his new series.
That said, I can speak from direct experience that he is gay. He used to be my neighbor in Astoria and we were fuck buddies for a while - until he got CATCH ME and moved into Manhattan. Loved oral, preferred to bottom.
"Aaron Tveit, rhymes with straight"
He's beautiful. But he was so wrong for Enjolras.
Don't worry about him, he's making butter out of cream.
Really want to see him "cream."
He was totally miscast as Enjolras. He looked more likely to lead the sit-in at the student union to protest the lack of gluten-free burrito wraps.
Anyone who saw Ramin Karimloo's performance at the 25th anniversary Les Miz performance knows what was needed in the part.
Time to bump, since he has started his sold out concert at 54 Below.
Any new gossip? Who's he dating?
when is his tv show starting? i hear he has butt exposure in that,
Fuckable. He looks like a hot version of Dustin Lance Black.
So how old is he? Some people just get the nasolabials very early or are hard faced. Think Madonna.
I wouldn't mind seeing the Aaron his Tveit
Any new gay rumors? Anyone spent time with him?
I know him. Hate to disappoint everyone here, but he is, indeed, straight. He's also a terrifically nice and professional guy.
How come he and Sam Page have never played brothers?
Like someone else mentioned, I keep hearing conflicting rumors about the gay/straight thing.
I've heard gay.
I've heard straight.
The truth is out there.

Welcome to Datalounge, newbie.
No, R50, in real life from industry folk I hear conflicting things!
[quote]That said, I can speak from direct experience that he is gay. He used to be my neighbor in Astoria and we were fuck buddies for a while - until he got CATCH ME and moved into Manhattan. Loved oral, preferred to bottom.
From all I have known, he has been living in Astoria and is still in Astoria. I have a friend who's in industry and has been his neighbour in Astoria for years to confirm that. She knows nothing about his sexuality, though. That guy definitely keep things very close to his vest, lol.
Okay, just checked Tveit's show people interview from this January, he answered yes to the question "you are still in Queens" and said he bought an apartment in Queens last year, along with some discussions on the arrangement with his old roommate around that time (May 2012?). So yeah.
Still would love to hear he's gay or bi, if it's true. LOL.
he seems like kind of a type-A, tense kind of guy.
He's in musical theater but he has aspirations beyond the theater into other things like TV and films. So it's entirely possible he's closeted. It's peculiar but a lot of theater queens are in the closet.
Weird...that should read "Poster who lies and says he knows him personally and he's straight"...what happened? Oh datalounge...
I won't be suprised if he's closeted considering his family seems to be this type of very traditional-catholic kind. And his younger brother is studying to become a priest. Hmm.
On a side note, I spotted his brother at least 3 times among the audience in N2N and CMIYC, which I think is oddly funny (how often does the younger Tveit comes to see his brother on stage? I mean, I only saw N2N 3 times - once on tour w/o Tveit, and CMIYC twice). They have EXACTLY THE SAME features but still manage to look quite different, amazing.
My friend swore he saw his dick and balls in Catch Me If You Can. There was a scene where he was only wearing boxers and sitting on a bed. And he was sitting in a way where the people in the front rows can see up his boxers, night after night, show after show.
R57 are you the norwegian catholic troll?
R9 I recall there used to be a lot of fuss on DL about Tveit and flip-flops during Catch Me If You Can times. Funny I just saw the first episode his new TV show called Graceland and they made his flip-flops a big deal in it. I wonder if the scriptwriter hangs out here, or...
Did you watch the episode online somewhere, r60? I don't have a TV but I am super-horny for Aaron's flip-flopped feets!!
R61 I watched it on TWC VOD, but I'm pretty sure you can torrent it. Just check eztv, should be up there. By the way there's a close up scene with him putting on his new flip-flop.
"By the way there's a close up scene with him putting on his new flip-flop."
Oh my God, I'm practically cumming as we speak. Thanks for the alert.
(What is TWC?)
R63 Time Warner Cable. LOL sorry if you will be slightly disappointed for they chose an angle such that what you mostly see is the flip-flop rather than his feet. But, well. The story's set in a beach house in Southern California, so there are plenty of scenes with flip-flops, bare feets, wet suits, surfing, you name it. His co-stars are very hot as well. I'm loving this show.
Someone I know who spent a significant amount of time with him when he was doing Next to Normal and he told me it never ever came up.
Is anybody going to one of his 54 below concerts? The box office was obviously swamped by all those fan girls (and boys), online system was down, tix sold out in seconds literally. I also tried to get tix from some friends in industry who have some connections. No avail. I am kind of surprised by how popular he is now. Also, Norm Lewis and Bill O'Reilly were in the audience the first night (5/3?), which I think is weird and interesting.
R69 If you are in the city I recommend trying out the cancellation line. The first line there were a few peopleon the cancellationline who got in. I walked past 54 below yesterday afternoon around 6pm and there were a few people waiting already. I don't know how that worked out in the end. If you are really interested, might as well try it.
Caught his concert. He's a bona fide star and knocked it outta the ball park.
Now, he needs to do it naked.
My Comcast OnDemand doesn't have the first episode of Graceland. It just has previews and a Meet Aaron segment. Is Time Warner OnDemand not the same as Comcast??
R72 The first episode on demand thing only runs from Apr 29 to May 12. So it ended a few days ago. The good news is Jun 6 is not too far away, and you can always find it online if you want to ;-)
Comcast and Time Warner are competing cable companies - NOT THE SAME AT ALL.
Aaron's concert was recorded and will be out in due course - music only, though. If they were smart, they'd release it on video.
As far as I know, they did have the pilot preview available on both Comcast and Time Warner VOD, as well as other carriers. But alas, that is past tense now. Agree that they should release it on video. I would buy that! LOL.
If Comcast and Time Warner are competing companies then why do they both have OnDemand? Wouldn't each company call it something different?
R76 Well LOL becasue On Demand is not a registered brand, and VOD (Video On Demand) is actually a common term for this type of service? And well, each company does call it something different -- TWC calls it Time Warner On Demand, Comcasts call it something like Comcast XFinity On Demand, DirectTV calls it DirectTV On Demand, blah, blah.
And it's good to hear that Aaron's concerts are wonderful -- that's what I heard from my God daughter, she had to wait in cancellation ine for 2 hours, but she said she had a blast. I would have loved to catch one of these concerts if I'm not this busy recently -- I haven't seen Mr. Tveit perform live in more than 3 years. I'm very curious if he could be more brilliant than he was 3 years ago, which I thought was mind-blowingly good.
Is he related to Arnold and Twink Tweit of Minneapolis?
R78 That's TWINKS TVEDT, you moron.
If Tveit is so fucking good, why hasn't he become a genuine star, instead of still being a wannabe? Is it the unpronounceable name, bad breaks or what? Please discuss.
