For Nico Tortorella – inked-up leading man on TV Lands hit rom-com Younger the futures bright, the gym is church, and age is but a number.

Its not hard to understand why Liza, the lead character on TV Lands generation-bending sitcom Younger (played by Sutton Foster), would fall head over heels for Nico Tortorella. The 27-year-old actor and model from Wilmette, Illinois, is bright-eyed and perennially upbeat, with a bad boy spread of tattoo coverage and an anything-goes approach to life thats irresistible. Tortorella is recognizable for roles in Scream 4, as well as the series The Following and Make It or Break Itand now, with his juicy role on Younger, hes teamed up with a top-notch crew that includes Sex and the City creator Darren Star and wardrobe stylist supreme Patricia Field.

Here, we catch up with Tortorella to talk tats, dreams, and staying fluid in how we define ourselves.

Youve landed a great role on Younger, which boasts what is essentially a TV dream team.

Between Darren Star, Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, and the rest of the cast and crew, it seems too good to be true sometimes.

Your character, Josh, is a young guy who falls head over heels for Sutton Foster, a 40-year-old who poses as a 26-year-old to be relevant in the work world. Were you familiar with Suttonone of Broadways great performersprior to this show?

I started to work on the pilot two days after I was cast, and to be honest, I had no idea who she was. Mind you, I grew up in musical theater, but somehow there was a blank spot there and I had no idea who she was. Didnt bother to Google her on the way to work. I showed up and asked her, So, what do you do? Very unassuming, she said, Ive done some theater here and there. So says the multiple Tony Award-winning theater star Sutton Foster.

The on-screen romantic vibe between the two of you feels pretty organic.

There was immediate chemistry. Which is good, because it was trial by fire. We met an hour before we shot our first scene together.

Younger hits on sensitive subjects, like feeling relevant and wanted in todays professional world and society. Whats your take on the shows message?

The new season of TV Lands wildly addictive Younger premieres tomorrow night. Based on the Pamela Redmond Satran novel of the same name, the Darren Star-created series follows 40-year-old divorce Liza Miller (Sutton Foster), who must lie about her age to rejoin the publishing industry after raising her teenage daughter. Once shes hired, Liza begins to live the life of a 26-year-old, complete with a new millennial gal pal, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), and a sexy tattoo artist boyfriend, Josh (Nico Tortorella). All with the help of her 40-year-old best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar), who happens to live in a hip Brooklyn apartment.


At the end of season one, Liza revealed her secret to Josh. Though he initially broke things off out of anger over her lies, the season finale ended with the duo agreeing to start fresh by sitting down for a cup of coffee. Meanwhile, Lizas daughter Caitlin (Tessa Albertson) was preparing to arrive in Brooklyn.

How will Liza tell her daughter that shes been moonlighting as a 20-something? Will Josh take her back? And how can she keep her secret to herself when more and more people know the truth? Before we tune in to find out tonight, we posed some of those burning questions to Tortorella, the shows resident heartthrob.

When we come back [for season two], Josh knows Liza is 40, he says. Now were just trying to figure out if this relationship has feet to stand on.

He says Josh, who often acts as the shows moral compass, will grapple with the subterfuge. He has been trying to deal with the fact that shes still lying to everybody else, and I think for Joshwho has lived this very authentic lifehes really struggling to figure out what this relationship means to him.

Sutton Foster and Nico Tortorella

And while Josh is unsure of his feelings for Liza, theres no denying the chemistry between Tortorella and Foster. Its crazy! he says laughing. We genuinely love each other.

Ditto the rest of the cast. Ive worked on a ton of other projects and theres always one person who has an ego, he says. But [on Younger] we show up,we do good work and we have a good time.

Italian-Americans fit into two stereotypes: Italians from New Jersey, whose mother can cook better than yours; and Italians from the rest of the country (their mothers also cook better than yours). Nicolo Luigi Tortorella is one of the latter, born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago.

In my household, people were always cooking, he remembers. Sunday dinner wasnt a tradition his family could easily give up when Tortorella moved to Hollywood, his parents soon followed.

My parents moved out to LA when I was 22 and both got their medical [marijuana] cards, Tortorella said.

Even though Mr. and Mrs. Tortorella didnt smoke pot while their sons were growing up, they found themselves living in Los Angeles with 40 plants growing in their backyard. They sold the green to dispensaries and their booming business became a family affair. There was one point where its me, my brother, my brothers girlfriend, and my parents all sitting around this big dining room table at their house clipping all the fucking weed, Tortorella says.

While his parents cultivated a new hobby, Tortorella starred in Scream 4 and The Following. Now he plays Josh, a tattoo artist on TV Lands Younger alongside the Goodfellas mistress Debi Mazar, a woman he calls incredible.

Though the actor is significantly tattooed in real life, his role calls for even more ink. [The fake tattoos] make me feel a little dirty, he says, because theyre not real.

Mike Maddi, a former makeup artist for Saturday Night Live, spends about 45 minutes applying the fake sleeves. They are really fucking annoying to take off, Tortorella says. It takes about two long hours of scrubbing to fully remove the ink.

Tortorella is sure he would never get 90 percent of the tattoos his character Josh has, but he plans for at least one more major piece: I want to get a lion and a cub for my Ma. Shortly after this issue goes to print we are hooking the actor up with that tattoo from Po Po.

His right arm is ink free, I think Im going to leave it like that. On his left bicep is a portrait tattoo of his grandfather, a World War II veteran, done by Kat Von D.

The conversation with Tortorella always seems to return to family. He didnt have the traditional upbringing we saw on 90s sitcoms (thanks to his uncle, for instance, he spent the bulk of fifth grade as an Italian boy struggling to go vegan), which is likely the reason his social ideals are very open.

I was dating these two girls in Dallas, who were dating each other, he says. They were always dyeing their hair crazy colors. This led to him dyeing his hair 20 different colors in 2015. Being able to share hair dye aside, joining a girl-on-girl relationship is fucking awesome, he reports.

Inked across his collarbone is the phrase not this. not that. beyond definition. He says, We as a culture spend so much time labeling everybody and everything. But we are all one. [Sexual fluidity and gender fluidity] is something I live by, stand by, and represent.

His Younger characters love life is also unusual. Broadway actress Sutton Foster plays Liza, a 40-year-old housewife pretending to be a 20-something book editor in Manhattan. As their relationship evolves, Josh, a tattoo artist living in Brooklyn learns her real age. Naturally, the news angers him.

If the actor faced Joshs situation in real life, hed react similarly. It doesnt matter to me. Why the fuck [would you] lie? Tortorella asks. The sexiest thing is full commitment to who you are and what you stand for.

Tortorella will celebrate one-year alcohol-free on January 13, I went like 10 solid years of boozing, he says. I was just over it.

If Im going to do something, Im going to do it in full. That go-hard-or-go-home attitude also applies to his future tattoos. Im at a point where Im going to continue to get tattooed and be covered in a couple of years, Tortorella says, or Im going to flat-out stop.

Tortorella reveals his abs and the tattoo niconiconico by Max Hanson (Dr. Woos apprentice) that rests at the bottom of his chiseled-out V. Its kind of my brand these days, he says of the ink. Around his neck a long necklace holds 300-year-old iron charms: one Viking cross and two Viking luminaries of the moon that were found in a treasure chest off the coast of Florida.

Tortorellas parents are now living in Florida and working to obtain medical cards in the Sunshine State. Tortorella calls Brooklyn home, but New York City is hardly his favorite city. Neither is his hometown of Chicago. Tortorellas favorite city is LA. According to him, the food is hands-down better quality.

Some Italian.
