Mr. Porter Tells Us Aaron Tveit is “One to Watch”

Aaron Tveit looks great in a new photo shoot for Mr. Porter, shot by Billy Kidd, modeling clothing for a “relaxed, out-of-office” summer style. Accompanying the photos is a feature article, speaking of his jovial nature and status as the “one to watch,” which you can read an excerpt of below. In it, he talks about his stint at 54 Below and defends the directorial decisions for Les Misérables with stride. It’s worth a read, if you can peel yourself away from the pics!

He may cut a pensive figure, but don’t be fooled — a dark and troubled soul Mr. Aaron Tveit is not. “I don’t walk around scowling at people,” he laughs, defending the moody, monochrome results of last month’s shoot with photographer Mr. Billy Kidd. “I think I’m a nice guy!”

He’s certainly had time to practise. The 29-year-old actor, who cut his teeth on Broadway before branching out into TV and film, has the “nice guy” thing down to a fine art. Clean-cut, athletic, and immaculately coiffed, the born-and-bred New Yorker looks every bit the matinée idol and, as is clear within moments of meeting him, he’s got the charm and easygoing personality to match. So what’s with the frown?

“I had a great time on the shoot,” Mr. Tveit explains. “But he [Mr. Kidd] told me early on that he was looking for something more brooding, more atmospheric. From my point of view, it was a lot of fun to go in that direction because it’s definitely part of me, and something I don’t get to do a lot.”
