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.

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.

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.

One thing I found funny about his Les Miz run is in all his related interviews he never mentioned any of his female co-stars (Hathway, Seyfried, Barks, etc.) while he talked about almost all his male co-stars on set, including those little-known ones.

That might be true. Yet other male actors who had similar situation, e.g. Fra Fee, George Blagden and Alistair Brammer, all mentioned the actresses in their interviews at least once. And they didn't get as many interviews as Mr. Tveit did.

Back in the days he used to walk around wearing make-up and being very flirty with his cast mates. I never thought he was hiding that he was gay. But apparently things have changed a lot in the last few years. So into the closet he goes, I guess.
By the way if you are wondering about the make-up, I'm pretty sure there are news photos floating around. There were plenty of those on playbill.com broadway.com and other sites, around 2008~2009, I think. Yes he even wore very feminine make-up to public events. So imagine my surprise when he claims to be straight.

R187. I saw the touring production in LA and had to say that production SUCKS. Obviously the lack of Norbert Leo Butz has to do with that, but the lead kid just can't MOVE and can barely sing on pitch. I thought Tveit's performance was only "okay" when I saw him on Broadway (like his performance in Next to Normal better), but after seeing the touring production, I think I should have given him more credit. As for the Tony nomination - I think that has to do with some bad luck. Catch Me If You Can happened to be in the same season with Book of Mormon (two very strong male leads!) and The Scottsboro Boys. I personally would choose him over the guy from Priscilla (sorry, can't remember his name) but that has to do with me disliking Priscilla very much. But then Catch Me and BOM would have taken up 4 out of 5 nominations.

I've now watched two episodes of GRACELAND, and it's a much better show than most of the fluff on USA (second best after SUITS so far). I like the cast, especially Vanessa Ferlito as the savvy, edgy New Yawkah chick.
But this thread is about Aaron Tveit. I continue to adore, cherish, and revere him. He's a good actor, and he's awfully pretty. He looks as if he might be packing, too. He had one scene in boxer shorts, and two where he's walking in street clothes, in which there's more than just a hint of a nice package.
I'd love to see him, Eric Close, and Warren Kole in a nighttime serial drama together next year if the shows they're in don't last. They could be three brothers.

R 194. There's a thread about Graceland (just search for the keyword).
I watched all three episodes, and even though I'm not totally into the show (yet), I do find Tveit's performance quite commendable. A few notches up from his previous TV stints, I think.
It's a shame his character is another typical straight cop guy, though. I was impressed by his performance in Saved! many years ago, in which he portrayed a gay teenager. His performance in Howl (with James Franco) is very impressive as well. I do think he delivers gay characters very well, even though it seems his orientation is still a mystery according to this thread.

Excuse me, am I reading it wrong or are you saying that "raising money for HIV causes and actors living with it" is a sign of being gay-friendly?
Don't get me wrong, I do think Broaway Cares is great and I've been a supporter for years. And I know Aaron has been very active in many of its activities and I admire him for that. However, BC is NOT a LGBT-only thing, just as AIDS is not a gay-only thing.
Speaking of his girlfriend, I personally would believe he has one as he himself said so on the WWHL talk show just a few weeks ago. I would easily be convinced if he takes her to some red carpet events. But even then people are still free to gossip and speculate, and I would admit I still enjoy gossips. Welcome to DL tumblr girl.

He's dreamy, and probably more talented than your average young male Hollywood star, but I have to say I was disappointed with his performance as Enjolras.
Hearing his rather ordinary tenor fall so short of the vocal and dramatic heights reached by Anthony Warlow or Ramin Karimloo in the role was a real let down.
|by Anonymous||reply 209||07/02/2013|
R208 Wasn't Jonathan Groff once rumored to play Enjolras in Les Miserables? But then it turned out to be Aaron Tveit. Which I think it's a good choice, as Tveit does have stronger vocal than Groff and can pull off a harsher-sterner-cockier manner.
I don't think Tveit is vocally right for Enjolras either. But I prefer him over Ramin, at least perforamnce wise. As much as I love him, I don't think Ramin come across as the role of Enjolras as Victor Hugo depicted. He's too outrightly passionate almost to a point of fanatic, while Tveit and Warlow portrayed the cold/passionate combination much much better. Another thing is Enjolras is supposed to be blond.
Anyway, I think they probably have trouble finding an young male actor (20-something) with the right appearance (blond, very very handsome and somewhat effeminate), singing ability and vocal range (all the high notes), demeanor (charisma of a young student leader), acting skills and on-screen experience. The look is probably the hardest part. Of the recent and current West End/Broadway/US tour casts for Enjolras, I really can't think of one that fits the bill.

Interesting take on Ramin Karimloo's Enjolras, R210.
I quite liked his 'hot-blooded' interpretation of the role, but you are right that coldness combined with revolutionary passion is the essence of Hugo's character. I suppose that marble blond beauty is a part of that, but I don't think that means a non-blonde actor can't play the role.
Warlow wasn't blond. I was lucky enough to see him in the Sydney production in 1988 when I was 14. He was extraordinarily beautiful in both looks and voice at the time - the perfect Enjolras, IMO.
|by Anonymous||reply 234||07/03/2013|
I don't think the writing of Enjolras in the musical supports coldness, so why try to play against the writing? If that's what Tveit was trying to do, it just came out boring. I don't particularly care how Hugo described the characters. I would have preferred a singer with more legit balls to his sound than Tveit has.

|by Anonymous||reply 236||07/03/2013|
R209 In fact, Warlow was blond at that time. But the original productions decided to use a dark-haird wig for the role of Enjolras. So even though Michael Maguire (OBC) and Anthony Warlow were both blond, they wore wigs on stage. I think they mentioned in some early interviews that they think the dark-haired wig looks more "romantic." I like Warlow very much, too. He's the perfect stage Enjolras to me, too bad he didn't leave nearly enough video footages in that role. He's got the coldness and passion quite well combined. If there's any doubt that I have with regard whether he would have made a perfect Enjolras on film - is my concern on his on-screen performance. And while I think he's extremely handsome, he still came of a bit too masculine to me (same with Michael Maguire).
R235 It's all about interpretation. If you watch video clips of Warlow in that role, you can see how coldness could be done, and beautifully so. Not to mention there's a big difference between film and stage, both in format and in writing. And apparently Tom Hooper and the creators were trying to do something in between the stage musical and the book. It's fine if you don't care how Hugo described the characters, but unfortunately those script writers and directors apparently do. So do many of the audience (like me). The role Enjolras definitely has some unique qualities and complexities. If people only want to see some typical hot-blooded, strong-willed, strong-voiced, super masculine young revolutionary leader, then so many other stories are out there with that kind of characters. In my opinion, that's even more boring for how mundane, stereotyped, and predictable it is.
|by Anonymous||reply 237||07/03/2013|
R234 And oh, I forgot to mention the evolution of the role over the year - the wig, for one, has changed from the almost black colored wig tied up in the back in the 1980s (OLC, OBC, OAC) to long curly blond (recent productions: Jon Robyns (UK), Jeremy Hays(US), Daniel Diges(Spain), Christopher Jacobsen(UK), etc.) Some other aspects have changed over the years as well.

Not sure about that, it was posted at least half a year ago and it's been there until the account (which posts mostly young twinks) got cracked down with the new tumblr family-friendly policy. His PR doesn't seem to be all that efficient. Or that photo is not quite enough to suggest his orientation (he's had girlfriends and all).

His hole tastes like marzipan.

I'm pretty sure I saw him at the Ritz' the other night. He was with another guy but they weren't particularly close or anything in the few seconds I saw him. Then I got distracted.
