Aaron Tveit seems to be the talk of the town. Within five minutes, his six 54 Below concerts sold out — a record time (and demand) for the venue! When talking to Broadway.com, he spilled some info on the upcoming shows, including a couple of songs he’s planning on singing, how he feels about the tremendous response, and promising words on future performances:

“I hope people can just come in, and have a great time listening to some great music,” Tveit said. “I have an awesome band and they are going to rock out. The theme is forming. It’s basically just songs I’ve always loved to sing, songs I’ve never gotten a chance to sing, and songs that meant something to me.”

When pressed for some actual song titles, Tveit conceded, “I will definitely sing ‘I’m Alive,’ ‘Goodbye,’ and some other stuff I’ve done. But hopefully, there will be some surprises too that people might not expect.”

Tveit’s show is already one of the most popular and in-demand acts to ever grace the small stage at 54 Below, selling out in mere minutes. The news of what a hot ticket he’d become took the Les Miz film star by surprise.

“I’m really, really excited to hear [about] the response,” the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner said. And those who scored these tickets are sure to be excited to get a more personal experience with the stage and screen star. “It’s a smaller concert venue, [and so] it definitely is a much more back-and-forth experience with the house. I’ll be speaking to them and sharing some stuff, so it will be more of an intimate night than being on a Broadway stage.”

And although Tveit has yet to take the stage at 54 Below, he is already looking ahead to future gigs. “Hopefully this wont be the last shows I do,” Tveit said. “I would love to do them many times at different places.”

Last night, April 2nd, Aaron Tveit attended the opening night of The Last Five Years at the Second Stage Theatre. The musical – written and directed by Jason Robert Brown – saw its off-Broadway debut with Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe as Jamie and Cathy, respectively. (Aaron’s friend and ex-costar, Norbert Leo Butz, actually originated the role of Jamie.) I hope to replace the arrival images with HQ versions soon, but I wanted to get these uploaded for you all in the meantime.

I have added nearly 300 HQ Blu-ray screen caps of Aaron Tveit in Les Misérables. In the film, he portrayed the student revolutionary leader, Enjolras, donning an iconic red coat for the role. (Also, in case you missed it, I also added pics from the motion picture soundtrack booklet.) The images are very, very high-quality, so I hope you all enjoy. If you end up making graphics with the caps, please comment below and provide a link — I’d personally love to see your work.

In another press piece from yesterday’s SXSW event, The Hollywood Reporter kindly highlights Aaron Tveit’s transition from stage to screen star. There’s a discussion on distancing himself from being strictly a singing-actor, and how “Graceland” allows himself to establish himself as a solid actor. He also talks about Enjolras “groupies” and how it feels to be a heartthrob (hint: he doesn’t really pay any mind to it at all). Check out an excerpt below before heading to the source for more.

THR: Thinking about Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele, it seems the “Glee” model has really opened up television to the stage actors…
Tveit:
Nowadays, but it wasn’t always the case. It used to be that you kind of got pigeonholed into one thing: you’re either a stage actor or a TV actor or a movie actor. Today, there’s a lot of crossover with film actors doing television, which never happened before, so those lines are a little bit more blurred than they used to be. One thing that I wanted to try to do was try to keep my musical stage work separate from my onscreen work at first. I know I did the Les Mis film, but I had also done a lot of television and movie work that had nothing to do with singing. I wanted to try and do that first.

THR: Won’t you miss singing?
Tveit:
I do miss singing. Now that we’re not shooting ["Graceland"], I’m going back to New York where I’m putting a concert together that’s like a one-man show.

THR: Tell us more…
Tveit:
A couple of venues in New York really support going in with a band and a one-person show. I’m still working on the set list but it’ll be songs that I’ve sung on previous shows, songs that I love, standards from pop culture, a little bit of everything. I’ve been away for 14 months, but when I get back home, I’m going to start working on it. That will kind of satisfy my singing wishes and desires.

What with the SXSW premiere for “Graceland” last night, it’s no surprise there’s some accompanying articles and interviews with the show’s star, Aaron Tveit. Hollywood.com got the chance to speak to him after the screening, in which he was able to sing praises (unfortunately not literally) over the television medium. After working on Broadway for so long, he shares what he enjoys about the daily grind of filming for five weeks and building up collaborative relationships with its creators.

Hollywood.com caught up with Tveit at the roof party that followed the Graceland premiere and cast Q&A explained his reasoning for choosing to do television after the success of Les Mis was simple: “I think the best writing right now is in television.” He continued, “I’m a huge television watcher, I’m a fan of Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Those shows I think, but obviously starting with The Sopranos and The Wire, are why you’re seeing film actors who would have never done TV before, all of a sudden want a series. The stigma [about TV] is gone.”

Aaron Tveit is currently attending South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. The annual event is an interactive conference used as a platform to promote movies, television shows, and hosts a large array of live music. This year, USA Network used the festival to launch the premiere of their upcoming series, “Graceland.” After many lucky attendees got to view a special screening of the pilot, the cast – including Aaron, Brandon Jay McLaren, Daniel Sunjata, Vanessa Ferlito, Serinda Swan, and Manny Montana – gathered together for a Q&A panel with fans.

You may want to “like” the official Facebook for “Graceland” to keep up-to-date on the upcoming USA Network series. Included among the goodies on the page were these behind the scenes photographs of the actors on set. Aaron Tveit is featured in a few of the pictures, all stylized in contrasted black and white. Hopefully we’ll see some more shots like these!

Although there have been a lot of behind the scenes looks at “Graceland,” USA Network debuted a full-length (3+ minute long!) trailer for their upcoming series. This extended look predominately features Aaron Tveit and his character, Mike Warren, which is promising in terms of how much fans can expect to see him in the show. It’s an exciting new trailer that gives away just enough, including an interesting secret Mike is hiding from the rest of the Graceland inhabitants.

Writer Aaron Fullerton tweeted last month that “Graceland” will air June 6th.
