Do you hear the people sing? ATF can exclusively confirm that Aaron Tveit has arrived in London for Les Misérables rehearsals! Filming reportedly starts on March 5th and will carry through until May 20th. In case you missed the news, Aaron will be playing the student revolutionary leader, Enjolras, in the Tom Hooper-directed movie adaptation of the famous Claude-Michel Schönberg musical.
Aaron is joining an all-star cast, led by Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert. Eddie Redmayne will be playing fellow student revolutionary, Marius Pontmercy. Others involved include Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Helena Bonham Carter (Madame Thénardier), Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Samantha Barks (Éponine), and the legendary Colm Wilkinson as the Bishop of Digne. Sacha Baron Cohen is rumored to be playing the corrupt innkeeper, Thénardier.
Les Misérables is expected to be released December 14th.
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!
Short but sweet update: Back in October of last year, Aaron Tveit had the distinct honor of singing “God Bless America” at the second Yankees vs Tigers game of the American League Divison Series. Pictures of the event have been dug up and, consequently, can now be seen in the Gallery.
According to young-adult fiction author Lisa McMann’s official Twitter, Aaron Tveit will once again be narrating an upcoming audiobook. This time, it sounds like he’ll be the sole reader behind McMann’s new novel, Dead To Me, which will be released on February 7, 2012. A summary can be found below:
Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family. It’s a miracle… at first. Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn’t going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he’d be able to put the pieces back together.
But there’s something that’s keeping his memory blocked. Something unspeakable…
In an article reporting on Sacha Baron Cohen’s addition into the upcoming, Top Hooper-directed movie-musical adaptation of Les Miserables, The Daily Mail also had this to say:
Broadway actor Aaron Tveit has just been cast as Enjolras, the heroic student leader who heads the march to the Paris barricades.
ATF can officially confirm that this is not merely a rumor; Aaron has, in fact, been cast as Enjolras! This is such exciting news to break, Aaron having been on my personal dream cast to play this very character in the movie adaptation. Hopefully the role will create a huge Hollywood (and Broadway) splash. Congratulations, Aaron!
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.”
Just over two months ago, Aaron Tveit lent his voice to Ellen Hopkins’ latest novel, Perfect. Now, he’s part of an audiobook with work by famous author, Don DeLillo!
The Angel Esmeralda features nine short-stories written by DeLillo between 1979 to 2011, spanning over various genres and subjects that revolve around the American life. Aaron provides the voice for at least one story, “The Runner,” along with other readers Mercedes Ruehl, Heather Lind, Michael Cerveris, and Peter Friedman. You can purchase the audiobook at locations such as Amazon and Simon & Schuster. (It would make for a great holiday gift!)
Just a quick site update: ATF has added three new photographs of Aaron Tveit from a photo shoot in August 2010, just before the Hollywood Bowl production of RENT directed by Neil Patrick Harris. With dyed blond hair and black nails, he’s in Roger Davis mode. The Gallery has also been updated with a larger version of a fan-favorite picture. Enjoy!

Mixing Broadway with pop, childhood favorites with contemporary sounds, and superstar vocals with charismatic good looks, Aaron Tveit’s cabaret debut was for six special, sold out performances. The Radio In My Head: Live at 54 Below beautifully captures the masterful singer in his first solo album.
