Aaron Tveit Theater Actor

Aaron tveit

Aaron Kyle Tveit ( /təˈveɪt/; born October 21, 1983) is an American theatre and film actor originally from Middletown, New York. He is known for originating the roles of Gabe in Next to Normal and Frank Abagnale Jr. in Catch Me If You Can. He also is known recurring role in The CW's teen drama Gossip Girl as Tripp, Nate Archibald's cousin and Serena van der Woodsen's ex-lover. Tveit graduated from Middletown High School in 2001, where he was active both in theater and sports, playing golf, soccer and basketball while also performing in all four of his school's theater productions. He turned down business school scholarships to major in vocal performance at Ithaca College, a decision his parents supported, before switching to musical theater after his freshman year because he missed acting and theater. Tveit left Ithaca College after two years to join the national tour of Rent as Steve and covering Roger/Mark. Following Rent, he was cast as Link Larkin in the first national tour of Hairspray. The role of Link Larkin provided Tveit with his Broadway debut in 2006.

Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King's Speech's Academy Award®-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar® winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. In January 2013, the world's longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper's sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs—including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”—Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime.
