Love Talk With Nico Tortorella

“I think it’s shocking that you have somebody like me even having these conversations in the first place,” says actor Nico Tortorella on a recent weekday morning. “I’m not supposed to be talking like this. I’m not supposed to be revealing all of this about myself, or even interested in having these conversations with other people.”
The actor is most known for his role opposite Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff on “Younger,” which returned June 28 for its fourth season on TV Land. Earlier this month he played opposite Courtney Love in “Menendez: Blood Brothers,” which told the story of the 1989 murders of entertainment executive Jose Menendez and his wife, Kitty. But what he is most passionate about is his podcast “The Love Bomb,” which explores topics of love, sexuality, gender and identity — all particularly relevant topics, he says, to discuss during Pride month.
The second season of the podcast — which Tortorella describes as “the soul of the work right now” — began earlier this month with none other than Love as a guest star. As Pride month winds down — and the new season of his show begins — Tortorella explains his passion for the podcast’s themes.
