Do you know the name Aaron Tveit? No? Well you should. Get on the Aaron Tveit bandwagon now so you can be a total Tveit hipster when your friends eventually catch on.
Chances are, you’ve probably seen Aaron in action — he had a recurring role on ‘Gossip Girl,’ where he starred in 10 episodes as Tripp Vanderbilt (holy crap that name), and he’s had small roles in films like ‘Ghost Town’ and ‘Howl’ with James Franco.
Tveit got his start in the theater biz with parts in ‘Rent’ and ‘Hairspray’ before hitting it big by playing Leonardo DiCaprio’s role in the stage version of ‘Catch Me If You Can’ (oh we will, Aaron Tveit — we will).
It was that seasoned theater experience that landed him a role in the Academy Award-nominated ‘Les Miserables’ last year as Enjolras (holy crap THAT name), a soldier and a damn fine showman.
Now the up-and-coming actor has a new TV show to call his own this year: ‘Graceland,’ in which he stars as Mike Warren, one of several government agency workers forced to live in a California beach house together. So basically it’s like ‘The Real World,’ but if everyone worked for the DEA, the FBI, and U.S. Customs. You know those Customs fools will be the ones complaining about people stealing their wine coolers.
