Here's Everything You Need to Know About Steve Kazee, Jenna Dewan's New Boyfriend
Jenna Dewan certainly has a type. After separating from her husband, Channing Tatum, People reports that the multi-hyphenate actor-dancer-wonder mom has been spotted with a new beau who has a similar pedigree to one Magic Mike. While he doesn't have any time logged onstage with a stripper pole (that we know of), Steve Kazee certainly has a résumé that reads like an A-lister. Here are the details on the man that's managed to sing and dance his way into her heart.
He's no stranger to accolades.
In 2012, Kazee won the Best Performance by a Leading Actor Tony for his role in Once. That's not it. He also took home a Grammy Award for the soundtrack.
He's also been in movies and on TV.
You might not know his name, but you may recognize his face. Kazee has had small roles on Shameless, Nashville, Legends, and procedurals NCIS and CSI. And about that voice: he and Christina Perri sang "A Thousand Years," which featured on the soundtrack for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2. It's since become a wedding standard.
He's got a high-profile ex, too.
Kazee dated Megan Hilty, who also has time logged on the Great White Way and starred in Smash, the short-lived show about Broadway up-and-comers. The two dated for more than six years.
He's really into boxing.
And posting photos of himself post-workout.
He started singing because he was a troublemaker.
According to Harper's Bazaar, Kazee got kicked out of Spanish class for singing during class. So, instead of detention, he got sent to choir, where he honed his craft. In college, he accompanied his friend on an audition and managed to snag the role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
