I’ve finally added seven wonderful scans of Aaron Tveit from the autumn 2013 edition of the magazine, Fashionisto, to the gallery. Danielle S (@seeshoplove) was kind enough to provide ATN with HQ scans of Aaron modeling various menswear, some more inspired than others. If you want to order a copy of the magazine, you can do so right here.
The Cool Issue — For our fall issue, we embraced contemporary ways to update menswear, whether it included a change in material, proportion or a great new print. Covering our eighth issue, we looked to Aaron Tveit of new show “Graceland,” Paul Wesley of “The Vampire Diaries” and Roberto Bolle, principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre.
Yesterday (July 8th), Aaron Tveit and his “Graceland” co-star Daniel Sunjata appeared on “The Rachael Ray Show.” The pre-recorded program had them discussing their USA Network series – “Graceland,” of course – which included a lot of enthusiasm on Rachael’s part: she’s a big fan of cop dramas. I’m unable to embed the video, so click on the still image above to watch a three-minute clip from the segment in which Aaron talks about breaking down a gun and whether or not he’s a good roommate. (FYI: A lovely fan also posted the entire interview on YouTube.)
You may also want to check out the Backstage Pass portion of “The Rachael Ray Show.” Although short, Aaron and Daniel talk about their on-set eating habits, like go-to snacks (nuts) and what foods to avoid eating (pasta). Remember the durian fruit Johnny ate in an episode of “Graceland”? They also confirm that it smelled truly putrid.
In a very brief feature in American Way – a magazine for American Airlines – Aaron Tveit highlights a few choice facts. While fans may remember details like him owning a Honda Accord (as mentioned in The Craptacular’s wonderful interview), he talks about some new details like his perfect Sunday, what’s on his iPod, and two of his favorite musicals. Check out his answers to those three things below, then head to the source for the whole list.
FAVORITE MUSICAL: “I have to go with two classics: Carousel and West Side Story. They kind of broke the mold with those.”
HIS PERFECT SUNDAY: “Play golf in the morning, then veg and watch football all afternoon.”
WHAT’S ON HIS IPOD: “Kendrick Lamar is probably getting the most play right now, with Frank Ocean a close second.”

Aaron Tveit is gracing the cover of this week’s Backstage magazine! Inside, there’s a feature article in which he talks about going from stage to screen — and what he’s learned in the process. You can check out an excerpt below, courtesy of Backstage.com. Be sure to pick up a copy when it hits newsstands tomorrow, June 27th.
Aaron Tveit might be the quintessential golden boy, but the idea of being typecast as the gleaming leading man doesn’t faze him.
“Typecasting is an interesting thing because, in a way, if you’re good at something, you’re going to work at that thing,” he says. “In other ways, you constantly have to change people’s opinion of you as one thing, especially if you want to play different roles. You have to shatter that image sometimes. I’ve had to do it before with stage roles, to get roles. I’m drawn to kind of darker, misfit things. I would like to, especially in film, play against type and do some heavier stuff. I’m intrigued by projects that deal with problematic people and things.”
And he’s fully prepared to show casting directors that side in auditions.
“I like auditioning! A lot of people hate it, but I like it,” he says. “Especially like right now, I’m not shooting a show so you get to act. You get to do that stuff, kind of treat everyone as ‘All right, throw the paint against the wall and see what I can do with this and what people say.’ I think it’s a great mental workout because you have to ready something, learn something fast. It’s good to stay on your toes and keep sharp if you’re auditioning.”
That doesn’t mean his auditions are always perfect. “Once I was auditioning for a play, and I was reading a scene with another actress, who was a friend of mine,” he says. “In the middle of our reading, the director says, ‘Stop — what are you doing? Do something else.’ I just remember being absolutely mortified. Needless to say, I did not get the role.”
Earlier this morning (June 24th), Aaron Tveit competed at the 3rd annual Bombers-Boomer-Broadway (BBB) charity event. The softball games – held at Yankee Stadium – pitted Broadway performers against one another to help raise money for The Actors Fund and the Boomer Esiason Foundation.
Aaron was part of the Broadway Bombers along with Constantine Maroulis, Jeremy Woodard, Charl Brown, Nick Jonas, and Kevin Jonas. Unfortunately, they lost against the Times Square Slammers with a total score of 19-6.
Over forty HQ pictures from the day have been added to the gallery; one of shows Aaron with Bombers teammate and Wicked‘s current Fiyero, Derek Klena, courtesy of Theater Mania. I also retweeted a couple over at @aarontveitnet.

Aaron Tveit has been cast in an upcoming, untitled short film directed by Georgina Chapman (Marchesa designer and wife of Harvey Weinstein). Dree Hemingway and stage actress Lois Smith are also set to star.
The short – announced as part of Canon’s Project Imagination last year – was penned by award-winning and iconic writer, Neil Gaiman. It tells the story of “two kids who can fly but give it up as they get older” and will feature time gaps, as casting for a nine-year-old girl to portray Hemingway in her youth is underway.

Aaron Tveit is among a select group of singers who will be featured at the 2013 Recording Academy Honors. Stephanie J. Block, Michael Bolton, Kristian Bush and David Caddick, Joan Osborne, and Aaron’s Les Misérables co-star Samantha Barks will also be in attendance along with other music industry staples. As part of the gala, celebrity guests will present awards and give special performances throughout the evening.
This year’s event – to be held on June 25th – will celebrate Ashford & Simpson, Melissa Etheridge, Trey Songz, violinist Joshua Bell, and the creators of Les Misérables (Alain Boublil, Herbert Kretzmer, and Claude-Michel Schönberg). They will be honored for their work, all of which is considered to have been beneficial to the creative community at large.
