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.

In case you missed it, Aaron just landed the role of Danny Zuko in Fox’s upcoming live-action production of Grease!

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.

Graceland's Vanessa Ferlito Talks Charlie's Ongoing Guilt & Rocky Relationship with Briggs

Tonight marks the season two premiere of Graceland and JJ‘s keeping the scoop coming!

This time we caught up with Vanessa Ferlito as Charlie, the fast-talking, badass FBI agent who has a lot of guilt from last season that carries over into this year’s story.

After befriending someone who turned out to be the enemy, she’s a little gun shy when it comes to going undercover. Not to mention, she and Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) have a lot to work out. Vanessa opened up about what we can expect. Check it:

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

JustJared.com: How does this season compare to the first?

Vanessa Ferlito: Last season was really heavy. I mean, I was on heroin, it was hardcore. It’s different this season. I feel like in the beginning, you think it’s kind of light…Charlie’s really messed up. Really messed up from last season. She doesn’t know if Briggs is Odin. I mean, she’s hoping and assuming that maybe he’s just not, because how could he be? How could he be such a bad person? I don’t think he’s thinking about all the stuff that happened. A lot comes to light. It’s a little quiet. You think everything’s alright, and then the worst sh-t that you could ever think of happens to Charlie. Not like in a physical way, I feel like in a more mental and emotional way. So I’m really screwed up.

Graceland's Serinda Swan Sheds Light on Paige & Mike's Second Season Relationship!

Check out this season two Graceland scoop from the lovely Serinda Swan!

The 29-year-old beauty plays a badass DEA agent named Paige who resides at Graceland with a group of undercover agents. We caught up with Serinda during a recent visit to the set in Fort Lauderdale.

Not only will we see some major romance for Paige this season – cough cough Mike (Aaron Tveit) cough cough – but she’ll get her own case that involves sex trafficking – a fight Serinda is very passionate about herself.

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

JustJared.com: First things first, how would you characterize the second season compared from the first?

Serinda Swan: It definitely has some of the ties from the last season, like you definitely find out a little bit more about the tape and things like that. The wonderful thing is because there are so many characters in the house and its very character-driven, it’s not just dun-dun-dun the tape! There are many different storylines that we follow, there are lots of different love interests coming in and lots of different things like that. It’s dark, it’s definitely dark.

You get to see a lot more of who Paige is, which is tons of fun for me. The first five episodes last season were an introduction to bring the USA viewers in and be like, “Now it’s going to get dark, people are going to do heroin, maybe an arm or two is going to get cut off, but we’re going to ease you in, it’s going to be OK and you know by the end it’s mayhem.” But we figure we have a solid group now that understands what our show is about and how dark we get, so they really gave us the liberties to have some fun, it’s great.
