“Graceland” Season 2 Press Post

June 12, 2014 • Category: Articles & Interviews, General News, Graceland 2

With the “Graceland” premiere last night and season two now underway, many interviews have emerged in support of the show. Aaron Tveit recently hit up a few places – including “The TODAY Show” – in order to talk about the USA Network series and his character, Mike Warren.

Instead of making numerous posts on ATN for each, individual interview, I’ve decided instead to collect them in a master press post. Below the cut, you’ll be able to find him chatting to Bloomberg, NBC New York, Sports Illustrated, and perhaps others as they become available.

“Graceland” Season 2 Returns Tonight

Just in time to help kick off summer, “Graceland” is back for a second season — starting tonight! What kind of high stakes will audiences see their favorites face this time? Check out a trailer above, highlighting some of the discrepancies when Mike Warren (played by Aaron Tveit) joins the Graceland house again after a stint in DC. As promised by Aaron, Daniel Sunjata, and even creator Jeff Eastin, the upcoming season will be even darker than the first. Don’t forget: season two starts tonight at 10/9c on USA Network.

Additionally, Just Jared recently interviewed Aaron about what to expect in season two. He talked about Mike and Paige’s (romantic and professional) relationship, the blurred morality lines both Mike and Briggs face, and whether or not that incriminating recording from season one will come into play again. Check out an excerpt of the interview below, then head to the source for more:

JustJared.com: We know that Mike is in D.C. at the start of the episode. What else can you say about where it picks up?
Aaron Tveit:
We pick up in an interesting place. As you saw at the end of [season one], Mike goes back to D.C. and I think it’s a couple months later. and Mike’s been working in this job, and he’s back on the track that I think he thought he wanted to be on — this fast track to upper management. I think he’s starting to deal with hitting some bumps in the road and seeing that D.C. is more of a bureaucratic place than necessarily one where he can go out and get his hands dirty and make things happen. So I think he’s more frustrated by that.

“The TODAY Show” (06/2014)

June 11, 2014 • Category: General News, Graceland, Public Appearances 0

In case you missed it, Aaron Tveit stopped by “The TODAY Show” earlier this morning (June 11th). Although his appearance was in support of his television series, “Graceland” – season two starts on USA Network tonight – he ended up chatting about other topics, like his theater history and… his hair.

When Kathie Lee and Hoda brought up Buzzfeed’s 30 Reasons You Should Be Completely In Love With Aaron Tveit, it was inevitable that they’d ask about his perfect hair — an aspect that takes up #6-9 on the BF list. “My dad has good hair,” Aaron explained, “so I have good hair.” After pointing out that he “has the voice of a million tiny angels,” Aaron also gave a little background on his theater history. On a whim, after a special request, and despite the early hour, he even sang a few words from Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man.”

Last but certainly not least, he briefly spoke of “Graceland,” giving a brief summary on the series and his character, Mike Warren. Be sure to clear the evening: “Graceland” returns to USA Network tonight at 10/9c.

Bello (June 2014)

June 2, 2014 • Category: Articles & Interviews, Gallery, General News, Graceland 1

Aaron Tveit has graced another magazine: Bello, featuring Ryan Kwanten on the cover. Inside the fashion ‘zine, Aaron once again talks about USA Network’s “Graceland” — and gives us some insight on what it’s like for the New York native to live and work in Florida while shooting the series. Check out a series of photographs from the spread in the gallery, along with the full-length article at their official site. You can also read an excerpt below:

[S]outh Florida is no walk in central park — literally. He’s traded Manhattan’s breeze for Ft. Lauderdale’s humidity for the time being, but let it be known [that] he’s happy to do so. His words surprised me. “Living in Florida is very different, but there’s something about the process of this production that is familiar to me. We’re all here for one thing, and that is to make this show. The fact that we’re all here with a sole purpose makes it about the work; and when it really is all about the work, it shows in your performance. Most of us are transplants, so it’s very much like doing a national tour in that sense.”

Once “Graceland” returns this summer, fans will see that things on the Floridian set have in fact been heating up, and I’m not referring to the scorching weather that the cast and crew endure to bring viewers at home an explosive thrilling ride of a second season. Tveit guarantees that there’s much more to say about “Graceland’s” sophomore leg than just “bigger and better.”

“Mike’s coming back in a different way. I was particularly excited about having the show return because, coming back into it, I really wanted to hone in and focus on Mike’s character. At the end of the day, he’s a product of his surroundings. As an actor, it was great being able to cut deeper into his character’s personality, now that we have the platform to tell more stories and show other sides of our characters.”

DA MAN (June/July 2014)


Thanks to daisythecoder for the scans.

DA MAN recently spoke to Aaron Tveit about his passion: acting. In a new interview, he delves into particulars about his career, like what drove him to pursue acting and how singing (another important aspect in his life) can further impact a dramatic scene. He also mentions both “Graceland” and Les Misérables, including how he landed those gigs. There are some great, insightful quotes throughout the interview, which I highly recommend you check out.

You can download the current issue of DA MAN right now, through their official site. Please do so in order to support the magazine, especially Aaron’s issue. In the meantime, check out an excerpt below (along with a few new gorgeous photos from the spread in the gallery):

DA: What is it about music you think makes such a great complement to other storytelling forms including film and theater?
AT: That’s a fantastic question. I really think music just adds such a level to a story. I find myself being overcome with emotion in music. The music allows us to go to another level of storytelling, especially as we don’t go around singing in our daily lives. Music allows a new level of emotional expression to be achieved in a story and creates an environment for the audience to be swept away, literally.

DA: What is acting to you, then?
AT: I am very grateful and proud to say that acting is something I absolutely love to do. It was something that I used to do for myself and for fun, and I now am lucky enough to do it for a living.

DA: How do you define a successful actor?
AT: That’s a tough one. There aren’t enough roles for how many wonderful actors there are, so I think we all need to find success in what we are doing on a daily basis. We love this job, we pour everything into it, and we do it for ourselves. We need to allow that to determine our own personal definitions of success and fulfillment.

The New York Pops 31st Birthday Gala

April 30, 2014 • Category: Gallery, General News, Public Appearances 2

On Monday, April 28th, Aaron Tveit made his Carnegie Hall debut! As part of the New York Pops 31st birthday gala, he joined other Broadway veterans – including Patti LuPone and Jane Krakowski – to help celebrate Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, writers of musicals such as Hairspray and Catch Me If You Can.

As the originator of the role Frank Abignale Jr. in Catch Me, Aaron was on hand to perform the show-stopping number, “Goodbye.” His co-stars from that production, Linda Hart and Kerry Butler, were also in attendance. Both women were involved with Hairspray as well, of which the original cast was reunited to perform at the gala. At the end of the evening, everyone joined together to dance and sing along to the infectious “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”

Photos from the gala have been added to the gallery, including Aaron’s red carpet arrival and performance. There are also after party pictures available featuring him mingling with the likes of Matthew Morrison, Christian Borle, Nathan Lane, and Kerry Butler herself.

Aaron Tveit will be making his Carnegie Hall debut at the New York Pops event, to be held April 28th.

Aaron Visits ‘Macbeth’ on Broadway

December 9, 2013 • Category: Gallery, General News, Public Appearances 0

Broadway.com caught up with Aaron Tveit on December 6th, when he was at the Vivian Beaumont to support “Graceland” co-star Daniel Sunjata in the new production of Macbeth, directed by Jack O’Brien. (Brian d’arcy James, who starred alongside Aaron in Next To Normal‘s off-Broadway run, is also in the play.) There was a mini “Graceland” reunion – just months before they’re set to start season two – with Vanessa Ferlito and Manny Montana also in attendance. A few pictures from their get-together have been added to the gallery.
