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.
A new video has just been posted on YouTube featuring a behind-the-scenes peek at “Law & Order: SVU.” In the footage, Michael Harvey – special effects make-up artist – talks about the various procedures done to make Aaron Tveit look like a street junkie. It’s a short video, but there’s some look into the transformation process and more details into just what was done to Aaron to make him look like Stevie Harris. Screen caps have also been added to the Gallery.
Apologies for the delay in getting these up; my screen capping ability is rather limited on a Mac. As of October 17th, there are over 300 HD captures from the “Law & Order: SVU” episode featuring Aaron Tveit (“Personal Fouls”) that aired on Wendesday, September 28th.
Hopefully this goes without saying, but just in case: there are major spoilers, so proceed only if you’ve seen the episode or don’t mind knowing the ending. If you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for? You can check it out on Hulu right now or watch it below.
A new interview featuring Aaron Tveit has been released, courtesy of All Things Law & Order. In it, he talks about his role in the upcoming “Law & Order: SVU” episode, “Personal Fouls,” including his character name — Stevie Harris. While in costume for Stevie, he talks about his significance in the episode’s storyline and mentions enthusiasm over working with NBA stars, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh.
Additionally, you can check out a behind-the-scenes video from “Personal Fouls” right here. It’s the opening for the episode, and Aaron comes in around the end of the video for a brief appearance.
A new promo for the upcoming “Law & Order: SVU” episode featuring Aaron Tveit, entitled “Personal Fouls,” is now available. Although I’m still unsure of the character name, it looks like he’ll have a decent size part this time around. Equally exciting is how different his role appears to be from the rest of his filmography and theater work! Remember: the episode will air September 28th – one week from today – on NBC at 10/9c.
As confirmed by his manager, Aaron is slated to appear on “Law & Oder: Special Victims Unit” yet again! He has previously starred in SVU, in 2009, as a peaceful boyfriend who was investigated after his girlfriend was murdered. It is unknown who he’ll be playing in the upcoming episode, entitled “Personal Fouls,” but fans will find out soon enough: it’ll be aired on September 28th. A summary of the episode can be read below:
As Coach Ray Masters is inducted to the Metro Basketball Hall of Fame by former students Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh, an ex-player accuses the coach of sexually abusing him as a child. Detective Nick Amaro transfers into the SVU squad and is thrown on to the case. The detectives interview former players but no one admits to abuse, forcing Benson and Fin to dig deeper into Coach Ray’s most successful player, basketball star Prince Miller and his manager/cousin.
As an aside, fans can hopefully expect to see his guest role as Skip in “Body of Proof” this coming fall T.V. season. While the air date is currently unknown, the best guess is September-October.
The Gallery was already pretty full when Aaron Tveit Fan was opened, but I’ve done some recent additions so you might want to look around. Most notably, I’ve just uploaded screen caps from Aaron’s appearance on “Law & Order: SVU,” in which he played an alarmingly sweet and sensitive boyfriend. Many, many thanks to the wonderful Jess at Mariska Online for the caps, since my program refused to cooperate. Enjoy!
