Fox has released the first batch of behind the scenes photos from “Grease: Live.” Although there still isn’t too much insight into the production, we do see the cast in rehearsal — and that includes some costume teasers. You can view the entire collection at BroadwayWorld, while just the three of Aaron Tveit are in the gallery.
Although we’ve already seen a couple of promotional photos, Fox has just released the first official promo poster for their upcoming televised adaptation of Grease. Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, and Vanessa Hudgens all star in this live production of the beloved musical. Airing on Fox on January 31st, this new version “will reintroduce and reimagine some of the show’s most memorable moments.” If you missed the previously released promo video, you might want to check it out and start practicing your own hand-jiving.
The first promotional photos for “Grease: Live” have been released, courtesy of People! In these new promo shots, we get our very first look at Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko, Julianne Hough as Sandy (before and after her iconic transformation), and Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo. (Pick up the latest issue of People to learn some insight about Hough’s take on Sandy.) “Grease: Live” airs on Fox January 31st.
Despite being a self-proclaimed “t-shirt and jeans kinda guy,” Aaron Tveit knows his fashion. Acknowledging that he admires classics and style staples like a leather jacket, he admits that he does occasionally enjoy dressing out of his comfort zone — an aspect he also applies to his wide-ranging role choices.
One previously out of the box sartorial selection he’s picked up from Brits during his time overseas? “Colorful socks,” he says. “How it worked with their trainers and pants and lots of other very small details. I’ve tried to take that from them.”
Enjoy a new photo shoot from Farfetch, and a brief interview in which Aaron talks about some of his go-to style choices and advice, including which two celebrities he admires in vastly different ways. You can read an excerpt below, then head to the source for the full editorial.
Having arrived at the shoot dressed in a beaten white tee, denim shorts, and classic Nike sneakers, Aaron is nonetheless more than game for dressing up in this season’s most fashion-forward coats. “I’m a t-shirt and jeans kinda guy. But I do like the opportunity to dress outside of my comfort zone.” And as he did, we managed to persuade him to share some of his own style secrets…
GO HELL FOR LEATHER
Aaron’s co-stars in “Grease: Live” are Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens, but there’s another reason he’s excited for the role: the amazing Fifties costumes. “I have a leather jacket that I bought in 2007 and still wear,” he enthuses. “That was my first big designer purchase.”
With animosity brewing between Mike Warren and Paul Briggs, it’s no surprise that Mike wants to find “the wires” to take down a scheming “magician” that is his fellow federal agent. And, it seems as if he’s just discovered a huge, life-threatening aspect – the sarin gas shipment – that links straight back to Briggs. The subject of good versus bad within the Graceland household has been brought up several times this season — which side do you think Briggs is on?
As the feud between the Sarkissians and a local gang escalates to uncharted heights, Briggs’ motives are finally revealed, and Mike’s hunt for the Sarin gas holds hundreds of lives in the balance.
If you found yourself especially enjoying this episode of “Graceland” (S3E09, entitled “Master Of Weak Ties”), you may want to send some love towards Lucy Liu, who directed it with finesse. The opening shot alone was masterful, and the episode had a bit of bite (Johnny’s dabbling in boxing) mixed with tenderness (Charlie’s tough love talk to Madison). Meanwhile, Mike has started to piece some things together: his life, and some kind of plan Briggs is cooking up while remaining aloof about it. What could he – and Gusti – possibly be up to?
Johnny goes undercover to stop a gang war; Jakes and Charlie set out to take over Germaine’s business; and Mike begins to piece together Briggs’ plan.
With a newfound sense of sobriety, Mike also has clear eyes — and that means observing a scheme that Briggs may or may not be up to. Of course, that inherent distrust did have its consequences, when Paige was ultimately forced to, well, use force to save herself. Could it have all been avoided if Briggs had told the truth? What about Mike and Johnny upholding their part of the plan, even if they were unaware on their involvement? In a job where “their lies are their lives,” maybe it’s best if the Graceland team started telling each other the truth to accomplish their goals… but will we see them working together once again?
Ari rises through the ranks of the Armenian mob; Briggs dodges new suspicions from his housemates; and Charlie and Jakes are one step closer to taking down Germaine.
