‘Younger’ Star Nico Tortorella Gives Fans Three Reasons To Be On #TeamJosh (Exclusive Video)

Leave a comment


Politics aside, there’s still a lot of important voting and decision-making to be done. Namely, are you on #TeamJosh or #TeamCharles?

TV Land’s Younger might be all about Liza, a recently-divorced, 40-something mother getting back into the workplace, but somehow her biggest “problem” currently is not tied to her divorce/daughter/job, but about choosing between two men pining over her.

The two men on the ballot sheet: Josh, the 20-something sweet tattoo artist who makes you swoon with just one look and Charles, the charming boss who understands Liza on a philosophical level.

With two equally attractive choices, both literally and figuratively, the decision is understandably difficult. To help make it (hopefully) a bit easier, we caught up with the actors at the Younger PaleyFest event last week and asked them to campaign for their characters and give fans a few reasons to choose them.

Up first, just like a genie would give you three wishes (all of which one might use to wish to have Josh for themselves), Nico Tortorella (who plays Josh) has three very convincing reasons why fans should be on #TeamJosh.

Reason #1, according to Tortorella? “Fans should be #TeamJosh because the show is called Younger, so we should obviously pick the younger one,” he said. Seems pretty logical to us. Five points to the #TeamJosh house!

While Tortorella easily rattled off three reasons why fans should choose his character, Peter Hermann (who plays Charles) chose a more soulful approach for his campaign.

"The thing that's most important to remember is that different people wake up different parts of a person's soul," Hermann explained. "Charles wakes up things in Liza's soul that Josh just doesn't." Hm, soul -> soulmates. Not a far leap, so maybe he has a point here?

Well, the Younger actors have definitely given us all a lot to think about, but when it comes down to it, Liza's the one who will have to make the ultimate decision. But who will she choose? Perhaps neither suitor will be given the elusive (but imaginary) rose, according to the Younger actress herself, Sutton Foster.

"I'm #TeamBoth. I actually think they both offer something to Liza that she needs and right now she's like a kid in a candy store, I don't think she has to choose," Sutton said. "But maybe in the end she chooses herself, I don't know."

We're not giving you an easy out like Foster's #TeamBoth, it's time to choose: Are you #TeamJosh or #TeamCharles? Let us know in the comments below!
