From his first filmed appearance in Ghost Town to his extensive involvement in two original Broadway shows (Next To Normal and Catch Me If You Can) to Fox’s upcoming “Grease: Live,” Aaron has a lot to talk about. In a recent interview with BuzzFeed, he sat down to reminisce over these career highlights and milestones, including his curly Enjolras wig and which role of his has yielded a lot of very strong opinions.
Check out an excerpt below before heading to the source for the full piece — not to mention a few new gifs sprinkled throughout:
Aaron Tveit: The word that really comes to mind is “us.” It’s such a collective experience between myself and my cast, and our creators and our showrunners, and our crew — we just really love each other and have so much fun. We all live in Florida to shoot the show, so I think that creates a sense of our own little community because we’re all transplanted. So when I think about “Graceland,” I really think about the entire group of cast and crew.
Do you guys do fun stuff after filming?
AT: Yeah, it’s interesting because we all kind of live there in a place where we don’t live. We all do our own thing, but then we all feel the itch of loneliness at the same time and we’ll all text each other like, “Hey, want to go get dinner this weekend?” So we all feel this at similar times.
Do you have any crazy Florida stories?
AT: You take your life in your own hands driving down the street every day. Having to drive I-95 every day in Florida is like, the most dangerous experience.
Aaron Tveit’s final episode of “Gossip Girl” aired yesterday, January 23rd. Did you catch it? What did you think? Was it a fair farewell to the conniving Trip Van Der Bilt, or did you wish there was more to the story? Over 130 HD, logoless screen caps from the episode – entitled “Father and the Bride” have been added to the Gallery. There shouldn’t be anything particularly spoiler-y about them, so peruse and enjoy!
Did you catch tonight’s episode of “Gossip Girl”? Aaron Tveit was, once again, briefly featured — this time in an episode entitled “Riding in Town Cars with Boys.” There was even more family drama between his character and Nate Archibald, leading viewers to wonder whether or not Trip Van Der Bilt can ever be redeemed. Screen caps from the episode can now be seen in the Gallery.
Check out a sneak peek at tonight’s episode of “Gossip Girl,” entitled “Riding in Town Cars with Boys.” Aaron Tveit is briefly featured, as his guest appearance as Trip Van Der Bilt continues. It looks like there will be some family drama again, this time with Chace Crawford’s Nate Archibald. The episode airs tonight, December 5th, at 8/7c on The CW.
A handful of screen captures from the latest episode of “Gossip Girl” – entitled “Rhodes to Perdition” – can now be found in the Gallery! Aaron Tveit was in this episode for a brief scene, acting against only Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald) when some information about Trip’s marital affairs needed to be brought to light and discussed. Although it looked like the situation was handled nicely and set aside, fans can expect to see more of Trip Van Der Bilt this season. After all, nothing is ever quite what it seems in “Gossip Girl.”
There are a few television appearances from Aaron Tveit that fans will want to look out for, including the much anticipated episode of “Body of Proof.” To keep it all in one place, here’s a special update on what to look forward to in the upcoming weeks, including a new, previously unannounced guest role:
» “Body Of Proof”
Aaron will be playing a character named Skip in this episode of BOP, entitled “Point of Origin.” After numerous setbacks over the past few months (the episode was originally supposed to air in March, before the show’s hiatus), it will finally be broadcast on October 18th (ABC). You can check out a promo right here, although Aaron isn’t featured very much in it. Expect screen caps shortly after the episode airs on Tuesday.
» “Gossip Girl”
As fans know, Aaron will be returning to the hit CW show as Trip Van Der Bilt in coming weeks. The episode titles and air dates are still unknown, but I can confirm that he’ll be back for a three-episode arc. He is currently wrapping that up, so I’d say to expect the episodes around mid- to late-November. Remember: photos of Aaron on set with Chace Crawford have been added here.
» “The Good Wife”
ATF can also confirm that Aaron will be making an appearance on the Emmy-nominated series, “The Good Wife”! He recently filmed a guest role in the seventh episode of this season, which is slated to air November 6th. Playing a character named Spencer Zschau, he’s on “the side of the law.” Stay tuned for photos and more information on this exciting development.
Nothing fans couldn’t have anticipated, considering the latest on set pictures from “Gossip Girl,” but Zap2it has confirmed that Aaron Tveit will be returning to the CW drama. Although it’s still unknown which episodes he’ll be in, or even how many, the website has reported that his reappearance as Trip Van Der Bilt will be part of a “multi-episode arc.”
As you may know, Aaron Tveit Fan’s policy on candid pictures is that we don’t post any — unless they’re behind the scenes footage. That said, ATF has managed to scoop up some shots of Aaron Tveit and Chace Crawford on the “Gossip Girl” set from last month, September 30th.
Many fans were wondering about his introduction before “God Bless America” at the Yankees game yesterday, in which it was stated that Aaron could currently be seen in “Gossip Girl,” and whether or not it meant a return from Trip Van Der Bilt. Well, I’d say these new pictures confirm that Trip will be back in season five.
