As you probably know, the house of Empire and American Idol is getting into the live-musical game
And the honor goes to...Broadway vet Aaron Tveit (USA Network’s Graceland, Les Misérables), which bodes well for the production. The guy’s a cutie and he’s got the pipes for the role.
“I’m thrilled and honored to be joining this incredibly talented team of actors in reimagining this classic and beloved musical,” the actor said. “[This] is a dream role and I can’t wait to be a part of all the fun that comes along with performing live on television.”
Grease: Live is scheduled to air on Jan. 31.
