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.
Briggs uses the house’s resources to help Lauren with her case against the Russian Mafia; Charlie lands in a bind when she receives unreliable information about a drug deal.

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. Money raised will support the Chapter’s education and professional development programs.
BWW also included further information on purchasing tickets for the event:
Tickets for The Recording Academy Honors gala range from $375 for Academy members to $1,000 for VIPs and are available by calling the New York Chapter office at (212) 245-5440. Sponsorship packages and show presentation only seats are also available.

As announced by the Broadway Show League’s official Twitter, Aaron Tveit will be competing at this year’s Bombers-Boomer-Broadway charity event. This third annual celebrity softball game will be held at Yankee Stadium on June 24th (at 10am), pitting Broadway stars against Broadway stars. Other players include Constantine Maroulis, Dominic Scaglione Jr., Jeremy Jordan, Brandon Victor Dixon, Charl Brown, Reeve Carney, Arthur Darvill, and newly minted Tony Award winners Gabe Ebert and Patina Miller.
Tickets for BBB 2013 start at $100, which is just the standard entry fee. There are various packages – of which you can read about on the BSL official site – ranging from one-hundred to $2,500 for a total VIP treatment (including joining the team and batting practice privileges). The Actors Fund and the Boomer Esiason Foundation receive 100% of the proceeds. No worries if you can’t make it to the game, though: ATN will be sure to provide plenty of updates.
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.”

Last night, the pilot episode of “Graceland” finally aired on USA Network! Did you watch? What did you think? In the series, Aaron Tveit plays rookie FBI Mike Warren who is assigned to Graceland in Malibu, a safe house with other FBI, DEA, and US Customs agents — and, judging by the opening episode’s cliffhanger, it seems like things are going to get tricky very, very soon. I’ve added over 1,100 HD screen caps from the pilot to the gallery; quite a lot, as this was an extended-length episode. Enjoy!

Glamour recently published a “Graceland” article in which we get a behind the scenes look on the production. If you head to the source, you can check out various pics of the cast, including Vanessa Ferlito removing makeup after a long day and Serinda Swan prepping for a scene by re-reading her lines. I’ve added the three photos of Aaron Tveit to the gallery, two of which feature him at a table read and another of him in the Graceland kitchen.

In the midst of constant “tell me about [insert latest project here]” questions, it’s nice to be treated with a fresh interview. This time, the relief was provided by Entertainment Weekly with a Pop Culture Personality Test segment. Aaron Tveit and Daniel Sunjata sat down to discuss moments in pop culture that made them cry, their first concerts, what films they saw too young, and what’s their most prized possession. You may be surprised to know that Aaron once wrote a fan letter himself. Click the image above to reach the video, as I’m unable to embed it.
