Graceland's Aaron Tveit Talks Mike's Visions, Addiction Issues, & His Future With Paige

Aaron Tveit is opening about the major changes his character faces in this third season of Graceland.

The 31-year-old actor stars on the USA Network drama as FBI agent Mike Warren, who was nearly killed after flat-lining for a good six minutes last year.

Not only did the experience change his outlook on life and work, but it’s been causing him to pop a few more pain meds than recommended.

How soon will this catch up to him? And where does this leave Mike with the rest of the house? JustJared.com caught up with Aaron about what we can expect coming up.

Graceland airs TONIGHT, July 9 @ 10PM on USA Network.

JustJared.com: So let’s talk about Mike’s big changes. He’s a new guy. He has facial hair, yes, but he also has a totally new demeanor.

Aaron Tveit: Jeff [Eastin, the creator] is always open to our input. He called me and kind of let me know what they were thinking for the season, and how I feel about it and if there’s anything I wanted to add. It’s a very open dialogue. So for this, the thing he pitched was the idea of this near-death experience. When that happens what it does to people. He did a bunch of research about real life-and-death experiences, and how people can really be changed by these things that they see. Whether or not it’s in their mind, their whole personality can change. And that’s where we started from. And also coming off of last year, Mike was kind of on a Shakespearean-eqsue ambition trip. I think we kind of wanted to see how this experience affected how he looked at himself previously.

So I think he comes out of this – and even though he’s dealing with all these visions and getting hooked on these meds – he recognizes that the way he was going about things wasn’t the best way, especially leading the people around him. So I think he is in the process of being a changed agent. And the thing we talked about that I thought was really interesting were these new qualities that he’s exhibiting, ultimately giving the people around him some room and not jamming things down their throats. That actually makes a great leader in the FBI and that’s something Mike doesn’t even know yet. So that was out general conversation about where it was all going to go, which I was very excited about.

Aaron Tveit Previews Mike's Season Two Return to 'Graceland'!

It’s been a jam-packed week full of Graceland goods and we’re ending it with the one and only Aaron Tveit!

The 30-year-old actor stars in the addicting USA drama, which kicks off its second season tonight, as FBI rookie agent Mike, who is quickly making his way up the chain of command, much to his roommates’ chagrin.

We recently caught up with Aaron on set where he shed some light on season two, including Mike’s much-anticipated (and not so smooth) return to Graceland, as well as his oh-so-obvious chemistry with Paige. Check it:

Graceland returns on Wednesday, June 11 @ 10PM on USA!

In case you missed it, check out all our interviews with Aaron‘s cast mates too!

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.

Aaron Tveit Models Bright Summer Outfits for 'Bello' June 2014!

Aaron Tveit wears a bright orange shorts-suit for the cover of Bello magazine‘s June 2014 issue.

Here is what the 30-year-old Graceland actor had to share with the mag:

On transitioning from Broadway to television: “I never chose to leave the stage. It wasn’t a conscious decision I had made. I made a conscious decision to gravitate towards whatever material moved me whether that was stage, film, or TV. When I read the pilot script of Graceland, I knew that was my next move.”

On relocating to work on Graceland: “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 all transplants. So it’s very much like doing a national tour in that sense.”

On his character: “Mike’s coming back 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 this character’s personality, now that we have the platform to tell more stories and show other sides of our characters.”
