Aaron Tveit and Daniel Sunjata appeared on “The TODAY Show” this morning, in preparation for tonight’s season three premiere of “Graceland” on USA Network. They talk about the S2 cliffhanger (including Daniel jogging through the hospital with a broken foot) and, because “Graceland” has recently been added to Netflix’s catalogue, binge-watching television shows (Aaron mentioned he’ll be catching up on “Mad Men” and “House of Cards” soon). To view the video, please click on the image above.
Earlier today (June 24th), Aaron Tveit and his “Graceland” co-star Daniel Sunjata attended NBC’s Summer Press Day in New York. Several photos from the event have been added to the gallery — and hopefully there will soon be some interviews from today to share as well. The NBCU press day was just in time for the new season of “Graceland,” which starts tomorrow (June 25th) on USA Network.
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.'”

For those who have been eagerly – and patiently – anticipating Jorge Michel Grau and Evan M. Wiener’s Big Sky, there’s finally some news to get excited about. First of all, a teaser poster for the upcoming film has been revealed, hinting at the plot just enough without giving anything away.
Additionally, Big Sky now has a summer release date: it will hit U.S. cinemas on August 14th. According to their official Facebook, a trailer is “coming.” Aaron Tveit stars alongside Bella Thorne, Kyra Sedgwick, Frank Grillo, and Francois Arnaud in this feature thriller.

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.
Aaron Tveit has been announced as a performer at Vineyard Theatre’s 2015 Gala to take place on Monday, March 30th at the Edison Ballroom in New York. This year, the annual fundraising event will honor Margo Lion, a seasoned producer whose productions have won a total of 20 Tony Awards, 4 Olivier Awards, and 1 Pulitzer Prize. Aaron will join Betty Buckley, Holly Hunter, Kate Mulgrew, Kathleen Chalfant, Matthew Morrison, Tony Kushner, Tonya Pinkins, and host John Waters at the gala. Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Spring Awakening) is to direct the evening’s performance.
“We have long admired what Margo [Lion] has accomplished in the theatre; from Jelly’s Last Jam to Angels in America to Hairspray,” said Sarah Stern, the artistic director at Vineyard. “She has been responsible for bringing some of the most groundbreaking plays and musicals of the past three decades to the stage, and we are delighted to be celebrating her in what promises to be a very fun evening, featuring renowned artists and collaborators from the extraordinary works she has produced.”
The Gala event serves as a fundraiser for Vineyard and will include a cocktail hour, auction, and dinner along with live entertainment. Individual tickets range from $1000-2500. For more information – including where/how to book tickets – please visit Vineyard Theatre’s official site.
His performance as John Wilkes Booth in Jamie Lloyd’s Assassins has been lauded, but Aaron Tveit will bow out of the role early due to filming obligations. (Specifically, this news is due to changes in the “Graceland” filming schedule.) Although originally scheduled to perform the entire run at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London, Aaron will now leave the production on February 8th.
Michael Xavier is set to take over the role of Booth. He is a two-time Olivier Award nominee, garnering accolades for his work in Into The Woods and Love Story.
While I know this must be disappointing news to many – including those who have already purchased tickets to Assassins in its last month – I strongly encourage the ongoing support for Menier’s superb production of a classic Stephen Sondheim/John Weidman musical. It is as timely as ever, Lloyd’s new vision dazzles, and the cast continually provides knockout performances. If you have tickets to any of the remaining shows, I hope you attend and enjoy Assassins, with or without Aaron’s involvement. I promise, you’re still in for a treat.
