Graceland Boss Defends Briggs' Risky Ruse, Teases Finale's Big Reveal

17 September 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

It ain’t easy living in Graceland.

Just last week on the USA Network drama, de facto team leader Paul Briggs (played by Daniel Sunjata) was shot in the leg by one roommate and slugged by another, after his Machiavellian manipulations and super-secretive ruses put his pals in jeopardy again and again.

Briggs is even at the root of comparatively mild-mannered Dale Jakes’ (Brandon Jay McLaren) new dilemma, seeing as the Ice agent “peeled off” some greenbacks during his latest bust, to serve as “get gone” money should “sin eater” Briggs need it.

When Graceland's Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) breaks bad, can he ever come back to what he used to be? Graceland is about to get darker than it ever has (and that's saying something when the main character was pronounced dead and brought back in the season premiere!). This week's intense episode, "Sidewinder," finds Briggs helping Paige (Serinda Swan) in her undercover operation, and things get...well, let's just go with "stressful." But that's definitely an understatement. The team's infiltration of the Armenian Mafia continues, but when the whole op gets compromised, Briggs is forced to make a choice that he may regret. E!

‘Graceland’ Sneak Peek: Charlie Joins Forces with Amber

8 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite her brutal beating at the hands of Germaine Marsden (Russ Bain) last season, “Graceland’s” still-pregnant Charlie (Vanessa Ferlito) is on the offensive — and she has her attacker in her sights. After deciding to keep her baby — and choosing to hide that fact from Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) so that she can remain in the field — Charlie is hot on Germaine’s trail in this week’s episode, and will use any means necessary to track him down… including working with Amber (Brit Morgan), the woman responsible for Charlie’s kidnapping and torture.

Variety has an exclusive preview from this Thursday’s “Graceland,” titled “Sense Memory,” which shows Charlie laying down the law for Amber in their newly formed (and obviously uneasy) alliance.

Elsewhere in the episode, while Mike’s (Aaron Tveit) visions and addiction to pain medications start affecting his ability to function in the field, Briggs coaxes a »

Graceland Debuts New Season 3 Promo (Sans Aaron Tveit)

19 May 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

USA Network has released an all-new trailer for the upcoming third season of Jeff Eastin’s spy drama Graceland, and this is the first trailer from Season 3 that actually features never-before-seen footage. The show’s previous teaser were only filled with scenes from Graceland‘s second season.  The footage shows the Gracelanders, minus Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit), in different situation. However, the actions are tied together by the words of Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata), who remembers the undercover agents as the very essence of the team and the show. He also says that every time the members of the house go on a mission they hold hands with the devil and, at the end of the video, states that “someone has to be hold accountable.”  Though the video does not have any new footage featuring Tveit, the actor, along with Daniel Sunjata, was present at the NBC upfronts in New York City… »

Aaron Tveit’s Return to Graceland Confirmed: Mike Is “Alive-ish” in the Season 3 Premiere

6 April 2015 11:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

After months of speculation, an early departure of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s play “Assassins,” the absence of Aaron Tveit in the pictures that were made public, and following his presence in a teaser that only showcased images from Graceland’s sophomore season, the actor has finally been seen in public alongside castmate Daniel Sunjata at NBC Universal’s Summer Press Day. Though there has not been a confirmation in regards of how active of a role the actor will play in the Graceland‘s third season, the outlook for a full return as a regular seem better than ever, if there was ever any risk at all.  According to early reports from Zap2it, when questioned about Tveit’s character’s future, Daniel Sunjata, who, so far along with the rest of the Gracelanders had remained tight-lipped finally spoke about the fate of Mike. “He’s alive-ish,” he said. »
