​​​Thank your lucky stars, because the handsome young thing named Nico Tortorella—better known as the sexy tattoo artist “Josh” on TV Land’s hit series, Younger—is back when the second season of his hit show premieres tonight at 10 pm ET/PT. For those unfamiliar, Younger  follows Liza (two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster), a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing…and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Miriam Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar), and her “pretend” life with her new crew – friend/coworker Kelsey (Hilary Duff), fashion publicist Lauren (Molly Bernard) and the always-sketchy Thad (Dan Amboyer), Kelsey’s boyfriend. After Liza let her secret slip to Josh at the end of the first season, she now must try to salvage their relationship, all while navigating a confusing chemistry with her boss Charles (Peter Hermann) and dealing with her daughter Caitlin’s (Tessa Albertson) return from studying abroad. The series is written and executive produced by entertainment icon Darren Star.​​ Tortorella, whom you might recognize from The Following, as well as Wes Craven’s Scre4m with Emma Roberts and original franchise survivors, and also appeared opposite Anton Yelchin and Willem Dafoe in the adaptation of Dean Koontz’s best-selling Odd Thomas. On the horizon is the recently completed fictional music-themed documentary Hunter and Game. Here, the Younger star sat down with Haute Living to share his haute secrets to the City of Angels.
