Although these screen caps have been in the gallery for a few days now, I’m writing an update just in case you missed their presence. What did you think of Wednesday’s episode of “Graceland,” the second in season two? For all the Mike/Paige shippers, you got a special treat at the end of the episode — how do you think that might effect the future of the show (if at all)? As heartbreaking as it is, I have to say I’m loving Jakes’ storyline and hope to see more of it in upcoming episodes.

Great news for those in New York: Aaron Tveit will once again be hitting Yankee Stadium at the fourth annual Bombers Boomer Broadway. The event will take place on Monday, June 23rd, and will help raise money for both the Boomer Esiason Foundation (aiding in the fight against cystic fibrosis) and The Actors Fund. Various Broadway stars are expected to attend (among them: Ramin Karimloo, Derek Klena, Betsy Wolfe, Bryce Pinkham, Constantine Maroulis) along with New York Yankee players.
Gates for the event will open at 9am, with the first game – “Broadway Celebrities” facing off – starting at 10am. The second game will feature Yankee Old Timers versus Boomer Esiason’s Sports Celebrities. Following that, there will be a luncheon reception for those in attendance as well as a special meet and greet of select players. Broadway show tickets and authentic NFL footballs (signed by Boomer Esiason) will be raffled throughout the day.
If you’re interested in attending the event, tickets start at $100. Please visit The Actors Fund’s website for more information, including who to contact in order to reserve your spot at the game.
Yesterday (June 16th), Aaron Tveit attended the opening night for Much Ado About Nothing, this year’s selection for the annual Shakespeare in the Park. As part of the summer tradition offered by The Public Theater – now in it’s 52nd year – Much Ado will entertain at the Delacorte Theater in New York’s Central Park.
If you happen to be in the City between June 18th-July 6th, be sure to stop by and support some local theater: it’s free! (Fun fact: Aaron’s former “Graceland” co-star Pedro Pascal [also recently seen in HBO’s hit series, “Game Of Thrones”] is currently starring in the play.) For more information, check out their official site.
On Wednesday, the second season of “Graceland” premiered on USA Network — just in time for summer. If you were able to catch it (and I hope you were), what did you think of the opener? How do you feel about the different dynamics within Graceland, including the bomb Mike dropped on his housemates at the end of the episode? It’ll be interesting to see just how much everything will change. If you missed the episode, no worries: you can currently watch it on USA’s website. In the meantime, check out over 650 HD screen caps from “The Line” in the gallery.

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.
Fans have asked (and asked and asked…), and Team Tveit has listened. After a hiatus, Aaron Tveit will once again be accepting fan mail! There is a new address for fans to send all their letters, artwork, and autograph requests, so disregard any and all former addresses used. From now on, only use the following when submitting your mail:
c/o Spanky Taylor
3727 W. Magnolia Blvd #300
Burbank, CA 91505
Be sure to include a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope)!
Keep in mind that all mail submissions are completely out of my hand, so please don’t contact me asking if/when you will hear back. It may take months to receive a response, particularly autographs; after all, Aaron is a very busy man these days. That said, do feel confident that the mail will reach him.
Also, quick request: please be responsible. Don’t divulge private information, and stay away from gifts like food (especially perishable food). Other than that, start penning your letters now and have fun!
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.
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.
