High on our list of reasons to love TV Land’s Younger (and there are so many of them) is a guy named Nico Tortorella. The 27-year-old Illinois native plays Josh, the hipster love interest of Sutton Foster’s Liza, our 40-masquerading-as-26 protagonist. In season one, Josh’s equally irresistible good looks and decent heart helped keep Liza invested in her high-maintenance lie. Going into season two, she’s confessed her real age to Joshthe rest of the millennials in her new life don’t knowand he’s accepted her kooky lie. (See: the decent heart thing.) Younger returns January 13 with a special one-hour premiere, and since we’re already pumped, we talked with Tortorella to learn more about his tats, season two, and his hard-crushing Instafans.

When you went out for the part of Josh, what did you know about him? What were they looking for?

All I knew is that he was a tattoo artist who owned his own parlor. That was it. But I knew that it was Darren Star [producing the show]. I knew it was Hilary Duff. I knew it was Sutton Foster. I knew it was Debi Mazar. It was a no fing brainerthis is a project I want to be a part of. I’ve seen every episode of Sex and the City [which Star produced].

We don’t hear that from guys every day.

In my defense, my girlfriend in high school and college was a huge, huge fan. We watched every episode together.

You have lots of tattoos as well, so I’m sure you totally looked the part walking into the audition.

For sure. I walked in in a tank top with a bunch of tattoos showing. I had my nose pierced at the time and little gauges in my ears, too. I would say I was the L.A. version of Josh. When I got the part, we took all the piercings out and added a bunch more tattoos and a white T-shirt and flannel, and I became New York Josh.

So when we see your tats in the show, some of them are real and some are makeup?

Yeah. It’s a combo. I have quite a fewI started at a young age. My mom actually took me to get my first tattoo when I was 15. She highly regrets that choice now, as I have a lot more.

What are some of your favorites?

We saw a little spark in season one and even more in the season two trailer but could there actually be something real between Charles and Liza on Younger?

I wish I could ask you to come in, but that could get both of us in trouble, Charles (Peter Hermann) says to Liza (Sutton Foster) in the season two trailer for Younger. Immediately my mind went into a question hole: What about Josh (Nico Tortorella)? What about Lizas boss who is totally in love with Charles? Does Charles know her real age? Luckily HollywoodLife.com sat down with the cast for some exclusive scoop.

Yeah, I think there is [something there], Sutton admitted during a recent press visit, while Nico added that its definitely an undertone during the upcoming season. It hasnt been explored obviously, but I think theres like a shared appreciation of books and of literature, and like you look at Charles and youre like, Oh thats the guy she probably should be with, or is supposed to be with. But then you fight for Josh. Its tricky. Its a love triangle, Sutton added.

We obviously knew there would be some problems coming for #Jiza this season, since in the trailer hes crying and it could be because the trust just isnt there for him. All he wants this season is honesty, Nico told us.

The thing is, shes now getting everything she always wanted. Its harder and harder for her to let go. The problem arises that now he has to lie to all of our friends, Sutton said. It just becomes complicated. Its like an ethical thing. Lizas like, Am I just a crazy person? Is it all still worth it? And she chooses work over things. Nico chimed in during the conversation, admitting that he actually forgets that the main storyline is Liza lying about her name.

You have lies in your name, he then said turning to Sutton. Lies-uh. I never thought of that either. Lies-uhhhbout a lot of stuff. Thats like a great Josh line! We have to agree lets add it in!

Its no secret that I love all things TV Land and am a huge fan of their show, Younger. I have worked alongside my TV Land family, live tweeting the premiere and am an avid viewer from home. I dont need a twitter party to motivate me to live tweet what I love (as you all know). I have enjoyed the entire first season but havent crossed paths with any of the stars, until now.

A mutual friend, Richard Hine alerted me to the fact that Nico Tortorella had done this amazing Indie film, Hunter&Game, about the world of Indie music in my hometown of Brooklyn, NY. This was of major interest to me because Nico is a favorite actor of mine but also because I have many friends who are Indie musicians in NYC and was even a part of the scene for a few years myself. (promotions mostly, not performing).

When I was given the opportunity to speak to Nico about the film, I didnt hesitate to say YES. I was not disappointed in any way. Nico Tortorella is as fun to talk to as you would imagine from seeing him on screen. He definitely shares many qualities with his character Josh on Younger in his spirit, authenticity, and ability to make others feel comfortable around him. He also shares the fun loving quality of his character in Hunter&Game, Carson. You can tell why he was drawn to the character and why the character is so endearing.

We spoke last Friday night about life, Younger, and of course Hunter&Game. I think you will enjoy Nicos advice, humor, and insight as much as I did:

Tell me a little about Hunter and Game. What drew you to the role?

Ninety percent of the film was real life. I was supposed to read for Sasha but I knew I had to go in for Carson. Carson was obviously the role I was meant to play, he is the heart of the movie. So, I smoked a joint, put on a fur coat, and got the role.

Are you a musician as well as an actor?

This week, Sony Entertainment Television announced that US break-out comedy series Younger would be making its exclusively UK premiere on the Sony channel (Sky 157/Virgin 193/BT and TalkTalk 331) this November.

Written and directed by Darren Star, the man behind Sex and the City, the show follows the “laugh-out-loud misadventures of a fresh-faced 40-year-old mother taking extreme measures to climb the career ladder.”

Eventually told by a lover she picked up in a bar that she looks much younger than she really is, she decides to take a whole decade off her official age and take another shot at chasing her dream career.

Lost in a world of pop culture she’s watched pass by, she hopes her cover won’t be blown and realises that the secret to life may simply lie in being a good liar.

Sutton Foster leads the cast, with Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar and Miriam Shor also starring.

Younger premieres in the UK at 10pm on Sony TV on Wednesday, November 25.

Exclusive! Interview with US Magazine ‘Sutton Foster Chemistry’

Age may be just a number, but it’s no secret that Youngers Liza is a lucky lady! Nico Tortorella plays the hunky tattoo artist, Josh, who went from fling to forever on TV Lands new series. The token hottie on the breakout comedy comes from a background in TV, getting his first big role on ABC Familys Make It or Break It before moving on to a recurring spot on Foxs The Following and a part in 2011s Scream 4.

Now hes a series regular on this summers clever (and insanely sexy) new show, which stars Broadway legend Sutton Foster and Disney alum Hilary Duff, to name a few. Josh is the twentysomething stud who wins the heart of Liza (Foster). Unfortunately, shes a 40-year-old woman posing as a woman in her twenties, and as fans saw on the June 2 episode he ends up finding out.

So what does the future hold for Losh (Jiza?)? Tortorella, 26, exclusively spoke with Us Weekly’s Rachel McRady about his character’s complicated relationship and this seasons finale:

Us Weekly: In the latest episode, Liza tells Josh the truth about her age and he walks off. Do you think theyll be able to work through it?

Nico Tortorella: I mean, I hope so, you know. Its a big lie that was revealed and yeah, he was high on ecstasy when it happened, which was a major buzzkill. You know, it sucks. It sucks whenever that happens, however that happens. I dont know, I think that come the last episode, the two of them will be able to have a conversation about it and see where it goes from there.

Actor Nico Tortorella (Scream 4, The Following, Younger) stars in Hunter&Game, an indie comedy that answers the question What if Spinal Tap took place in Brooklyn in 2015? Hunter&Game will have its East Coast Premiere at the 2015 AoBFF.

The 2015 Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is proud to screen the East Coast Premiere of Hunter&Game, a new indie documentary-style comedy about a band youve probably never heard of. The film stars Nico Tortorella of TV Land’s hit show Younger and Cameron Scoggins of Playwrights Horizons. AoBFF calls it “a hilarious update of Spinal Tap, set in the Williamsburg music scene.”

The band called Hunter&Game consists of two twenty-something best friends named Sasha (Cameron Scoggins) and Carson (Nico Tortorella.) Over the last year and a half, the Brooklyn-based duo have created a buzz around their indie-electronic project and are poised to have a breakthrough with the release of their debut LP.

A week before the release, Sasha and Carson welcome a Catalan documentary film crew into their Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment (which doubles as a practice space) and let the documentarians shadow their lives. Despite their excitement about the debut album and upcoming tour, things dont go as Sasha and Carson had hoped. The film crew gingerly follows the action, realizing they have stumbled upon a more interesting story than the one they anticipated.

The film was shot almost entirely in Brooklyn in many well-known Brooklyn venues. Because of the fleeting nature of Brooklyns underground music scene two of the venues in the film 285 Kent and Body Actualized Center have already closed down.

Tickets and full schedule for the 5th Annual AoBFF are available at http://theartofbrooklyn.org

admin / May 2nd, 2015   Mamma Dallas,Articles/Interviews

HBO has opted not to go to series on Mamma Dallas, its comedy pilot by Enlightened creator Mike White, which followed a conservative Texan family who unwittingly hire a hard-living drag queen as their live-in nanny.

With its concept, the project was considered a big swing and, while it is not going forward, HBO remains committed to its creator, as reiterated by the networks programming chief Michael Lombardo. Mike White is one of the most talented filmmakers working today and we feel honored to have worked with him on Enlightened and the Mama Dallas pilot, he said in a statement to Deadline. The latter only reinforced our views of Mikes prodigious talents. Unfortunately, after much discussion we have decided not to proceed to series on this work. We truly hope that we will find another opportunity to work together.

Written, directed and executive produced by White, Mamma Dallas centered on Liberty (Augustus Prew) who appears to be an attractive woman with a flirty side but shes really a drag queen with an upbeat personality. On a path that leads to jail or prostitution or both, Liberty (also known as Albert) sees a future that will destroy his basically optimistic spirit and re-invents himself to get a job as a nanny to three children of a conservative Texan family. Paul Fitzgerald, Mary Catherine Garrison and Nico Tortorella co-starred. White executive produced the pilot with Dede Gardner.
