Men’s Fitness Asks Aaron About “Graceland,” Grooming, and Golf

June 24, 2015 • Category: Articles & Interviews, Graceland 0

Recently, Aaron Tveit spoke to Mike Simone at Men’s Fitness about “Graceland” and – unsurprisingly, considering the publication’s purpose – his fitness regime, including some opinions on the increasingly popular craze, CrossFit. He also details how he initially got into golf, which was introduced to him by his father. And for the men who are fans of Tveit, he doles out some advice on growing out facial hair and proper maintenance.

You can check out the video interview by clicking on the image above. The quote provided below – from the interview – is the best “game-changing advice” Aaron has received in life:

I think [from] my dad, when I got I job where I was about to leave school and start working; and it happened very fast. He told me not to be afraid to succeed. I think that mean, ‘Don’t back away from the opportunities you’re getting or are going to get.'”

May 20, 2015 • Category: Graceland, Television News 2

The first (teaser) trailer for the third season of “Graceland” has been released. Like so much of this upcoming season’s promo has shown, its secrecy regarding Mike Warren’s fate is still in the air as Aaron Tveit does not appear in the trailer. Not only that, but the theme for season three seems to be penance and working together again as the Graceland team. Intrigued? Watch it all unfold on USA Network when “Graceland” returns on June 25th.

The first poster for season three of “Graceland” has been released via Entertainment Weekly. If it kinda looks familiar, it’s because the shot was borrowed from the season two promo shoot — although, this time, Daniel Sunjata’s Paul Briggs is at the forefront. Don’t fret, though: Aaron Tveit has already confirmed that his character, Mike Warren, will be “there in some capacity.” “Graceland” returns to USA Network for its third season on June 25th.

“Graceland” Renewed for Third Season

November 13, 2014 • Category: Graceland, Television News 2

If you’ve been holding your breath for this announcement since September, you can finally breathe a sigh of relief: USA Network has renewed “Graceland” for a third season, ordering another 13 episodes of the Jeff Eastin series. Although there is no current air date, it should hit U.S. TV screens once more in the summer of 2015.

USA Network’s president, Chris McCumber, addressed an elephant in the room in the season three announcement. “This season of ‘Graceland’ took viewers on a wild ride with unexpected character twists, and a heart-stopping cliffhanger that left a lead character’s fate in question,” he said, speaking specifically of Aaron Tveit’s Mike Warren. “Jeff Eastin and the talented ensemble cast deliver on all levels, and season three will undoubtedly continue to keep us on the edge of our seats.”

Creator Jeff Eastin has a long-standing relationship with USA; his other show, “White Collar,” is currently airing its sixth and final season, after running on the network for five years. Speaking on behalf of that relationship, Nancy Cotton, senior VP of programming at Fox Television Studios, said, “FTVS truly values the long and fruitful relationship we have with Jeff and USA. We could not be more excited to bring USA viewers another thrilling season of ‘Graceland.'”

A hearty congrats to the cast, crew, and creatives of “Graceland” on this wonderful news!

“Graceland” Screen Caps: S2E13 — “Faith 7” + Post-Episode Interview with Aaron

September 13, 2014 • Category: Articles & Interviews, Gallery, General News, Graceland 1

The final episode of “Graceland” season two aired on Wednesday night, leaving audiences on the biggest cliffhanger yet. The breathtaking finale saw the various missions established by the Graceland household fall apart, causing unexpected carnage and chaos. Although a season three hasn’t been officially confirmed, do you have any predictions on where the show will go next? (Please be aware that comments will likely have spoilers — read at your own discretion.)

Additionally, Zap2it recently spoke to Aaron Tveit about his character, Mike Warren, and the arc he faced throughout season two. There’s also some personal predictions and hopes from Aaron about season three that’s worth checking out. An excerpt is provided below, but please visit the source for the full article.

“It’s been so much fun for me to see the student become the teacher, but really this idealist becomes a cynic. To do good undercover work and to get things done you do have to compromise things,” Tveit says of Mike’s character arc this season. “Mike was just doing his job and in my opinion, doing a great job. The fact that other people were personally caught up in his wake — that wasn’t his concern.”

“Graceland” Screen Caps: S2E12 — “Echoes”

September 12, 2014 • Category: Gallery, Graceland 0

ATN is playing catch-up yet again: I’ve just added over 450 HD screen caps from last week’s episode of “Graceland,” the penultimate ep of season two. Entitled “Echoes,” we saw some past choices of the characters continue to haunt them — from bruises to incriminating evidence. After engaging in a scuffle with Sid, Mike asks Briggs for advice, including what happens if he doesn’t catch the bad guy. “Maybe that’s where atonement comes in,” Briggs suggests, although Mike states simply that he’s “not interested in atonement.” If you haven’t yet watched the finale: any final predictions?

“Graceland” Screen Caps: S2E11 — “Home”

September 4, 2014 • Category: Gallery, Graceland 0

My apologies in the severe delay over these screen caps, for last week’s episode of “Graceland” (the eleventh in this second season, entitled “Home”). It included some explosive moments, including a messy sauce night and bank robbery that almost went awry thanks to Briggs nearly losing himself. Or, has he lost himself already? Caps have been a little slow this season due to issues with my laptop (long story), but I hope to get caps from last night’s episode – “Echoes” – on the site shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Playbill.com: Aaron Tveit on “Graceland,” Coming Back to Broadway, and Tveiter Tots

September 2, 2014 • Category: Articles & Interviews, General News, Graceland, Stage Work 0

Off the heels of a street naming ceremony, Playbill.com has released a new interview with Aaron Tveit in which they talk about the honor. And with two episodes of “Graceland” left in season two, it’s no surprise they delve a little bit into the USA Network show — including transitioning from stage to small screen and whether or not there are plans for Aaron’s character, Mike Warren, to sing.

Speaking of singing, Aaron also talks about hopeful plans in the future, like performing in classic revivals and wanting to perform with more orchestras around the nation. In the meantime, he’ll get some of his concert fix this Saturday, as he’ll be performing with the Pasadena Pops in Michael Feinstein’s “New York! New York!” show.

Check out an excerpt of the article below before heading to the source for more:

After starring in two brand-new musicals, Tveit, who said he’s a fan of the classic musical catalog of Carousel, West Side Story, and South Pacific, among others, said he would like to perform in a revival. He also is “dying to do a play,” listing David Mamet and Martin McDonagh as two of his favorite playwrights.

“New musicals are really hard, to be completely honest,” he said. “Everyone’s taking a big chance and it’s a lot of hard work — which is also so exciting to get to be a part of something. But doing a revival, you’re working on a [known] property. You have to figure out a new way to do it or a fun way to do it. Those musicals are revived and are classics for a reason.”
