It’s official: Aaron Tveit will star as Danny Zuko in Fox’s live version of movie-musical Grease, opening #tbt floodgates everywhere. Tveit will join Julianne Hough as Sandy, Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, and Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie.
Tveit became a Broadway veteran in 2012 with his role in Les Misérables, and we expect no less from Hough, a two-time professional dance champion on ABC’s top-rated Dancing With the Stars.
Though this casting brings high hopes, there are high expectations that come with remaking a timeless classic like Grease. Just go easy on the hair gel, gentlemen!
