In my humble opinion, last Wednesday’s episode of “Graceland” – entitled “The Unlucky One” – was the best yet. Compelling, complex, and rich in character dynamics while simultaneously shining a spotlight on a very important, if often overlooked, issue: sex trafficking. My hats off to creator Jeff Eastin (and Serinda Swan, who suggested the storyline) for tackling such a sensitive topic.
Aaron Tveit’s acting in the episode was absolutely wonderful, showing the wide array of moral dilemmas Mike Warren must face on a case by case basis. Did he make the right choices? In the end, who do you think “the unlucky one” was? There seems to be no easy answer. While you think about it, check out the numerous HD screen caps from the episode now added to the gallery.
The latest episode of “Graceland” might have only been the fifth in its second season, but it sure was a doozy. As promised by USA, the episode as a whole was explosive and game-changing, ending on a nail-biting cliffhanger. Who do you think might have compromised the mission? And where do you think this will take Mike in future episodes? It’s hard to believe we’re not even halfway through the season. Screen caps from the episode have been added to the gallery.
Paige’s pursuit of the drug mules leads her into a terrifying encounter with human traffickers. Mike ignores rules and protocol in order to get some answers about the case, but he quickly discovers he won’t get anywhere without Briggs’ assistance.
Screen caps from the season two, fourth episode of “Graceland” have been added to the gallery. The episode, entitled “Magic Number,” started to heavily feature those pesky buses Mike Warren was surveilling in the opening episode of the season. Do you think Mike is onto something? We’re also seeing more of Jakes in S2 — how might his involvement in this case affect his relationship with his son? Mike wasn’t in this episode too much, but there are still 180+ HD caps now available.
If you’re looking for something to do on Thursday, the Manhattan Film Institute has got you covered. This year, as part of their Summer Film Camp, they are offering a Summer Film Series, in which multiple films are screened with commentary from special guests. MFI is teaming up with Peconic Landing Community Center in Greenport, New York to host this event.
On Thursday, July 17th, Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables will be screened at Peconic Landing as part of the Summer Film Series. As a special treat, Aaron Tveit will be at the event to talk about the Academy Award-winning movie-musical, including his filming experiences. Following the screening, Aaron will answer questions and provide commentary for the film, in which he played the student revolutionary, Enjolras. The screening starts at 7:30 pm.
(If you stick around Greenport, there will also be a screening for The Usual Suspects on July 19th.)
All of the Summer Film Series screenings are open to the public, and a single ticket to each event costs $15. You can purchase tickets on Peconic Landing’s website or call (631) 477-2583.
A surprise visitor to Graceland upends the power dynamics and puts Mike in a precarious position. Tuturro risks his undercover with Carlito to help Lucia, but he makes a desperate move to earn it back.
Broadway.com’s series “Show People” with Paul Wontorek returned today after a brief hiatus. The guest was, of course, Aaron Tveit, who made his third appearance on the show — and even answered some fan questions. The 30-minute interview can be viewed above, in which he talks about “Graceland,” dressing in drag, possible tattoos, and just how he hits those high notes. It’s a great interview – as “Show People” always provides – so make some room in your day to check it out.
(Many thanks to Aaron for giving ATN and affiliated accounts a shout-out on the show!)
On Monday, June 23rd, Aaron Tveit competed in a friendly game of softball as part of the 4th annual Bombers Boomer Broadway. Held at Yankee Stadium, the yearly event helps raise money for both the Boomer Esiason Foundation and The Actors Fund.
This time, Aaron joined the Bombers team — but, unfortunately, his team has seen better days. The Broadway Bombers lost against the Times Squares Slammers, 15-6. No worries, though: the event was for a great cause, and undoubtedly the players had a good time regardless of their score.
Pictures from the BBB have been added to the gallery. You can also find a brief clip of Aaron in a video below, which is part of actor James Snyder’s vlog series, “Hey Kid.” (Aaron appears at 9:18, for those who want to skip ahead.)
