Even as the agents bait their final hooks against the Solano Cartel, it dawns that Sid may still have a few tricks of his own.
While some celebrities receive keys to a city, Aaron Tveit’s New York hometown is taking it a step further by honoring him with his very own street name.
The event – which takes place at the Paramount Theatre on Sunday, August 31st – will primarily serve as the grand opening for the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, a new medicine school held at the former Horton Hospital, where Aaron was born. (“It’s not about me,” the ever-humble Aaron stated.) Students will recite the oath of osteopathic physicians before engaging in a “coating ceremony,” serving as a symbol to their dedication in the medical field.
Aaron will act as a keynote speaker at the opening, where he’ll talk about passion and how it spans from Broadway to the medical community. “I know they’re going into this because they’re passionate about helping people,” he said. According to Times Herald-Record, Aaron also stated that he was pleased the old Horton Hospital would be used as a school rather than demolished, a reason why he was happy to host the event.
Following the opening ceremony, Middletown will honor Aaron with a very special addition to the town: they’ll be renaming the portion of South Street in front of the Paramount Theatre – where Aaron performed at as a teenager – to Aaron Tveit Way. Speaking to Playbill, Aaron said of his new street, “It’s just utterly mind-blowing. I never would have expected that in a million years. I’m so grateful and flattered.
“I still can’t wrap my head around that, to be completely honest,” Aaron continued in his Playbill interview. “It’s an incredible thing. My hometown is awesome, and I still have a lot of pride there. I’m still very much still tied there.”
Following last week’s raid of Sulla’s human trafficking house, things are as heated as ever between Graceland’s Mike (Aaron Tveit) and Paige (Serinda Swan) — and not in a good way. In this exclusive sneak peek from Wednesday’s new episode (10/9c, USA), Mike…
The passive aggressiveness is strong in this one.
Aaron Tveit to be honoured in his hometown.
Following an episode where Mike literally had blood on his hands, he was barely able to get any rest before his ongoing operation blew up in his face. Did Paige and Briggs made the right decision by stepping into the compound? After exploring Sulla’s house, do you think Paige now has a hunch about Lena’s ultimate fate? Mike wasn’t featured heavily in this episode, but you can still find several HD screen caps from “The Head Of The Pig” in the gallery.
Briggs learns that someone at Graceland has proof of his past crimes.
@jammyprod: Frank Jr. showed up to cheer on Charlie Price!!! #catchme @KinkyBootsBway #studiorun #fullout @stevenboothus
The ninth episode of “Graceland” S2 might have been the darkest yet, showing the indescribable bleakness of Sulla’s house of sex trafficking. Mike Warren – who was staying overnight for the case – involved himself with a lot of trouble and heartache. Do you think Mike behaved rationally, or was he running too much on emotions? How do you think this will affect other relationships in the show? Over 250 HD screen caps from the episode (“Gratis”) have been added to the gallery.
Hey, guys! There seems to be a lot of buzz about Aaron’s upcoming 54 Below shows all of a sudden, so I figured to shed some light.
Just to clarify: the last I was told was that his next round of 54 Below shows won’t be happening before the end of the year. (Aaron will be busy filming.)
On the bright side, that means more time to save up should anyone have plans on traveling to NY! It should definitely be happening soon; the wait will just be a little longer.
Briggs and Paige sen Briggs’ undercover after Mike, who they believe has pushed boundaries too far. Unfortunately, a dirty cop’s commitment to corruption causes the operation to go awry.
In lighter news, here’s Aaron attempting to get into character on set. Probably listening to Tupac.
As part of the Sierra Acura Summer Concert Series, the illustrious Pasadena POPS and Michael Feinstein are hosting a special event on September 6th entitled New York! New York! — and Aaron Tveit is scheduled to appear. As part of a one-night only concert, Aaron – alongside Patti Austin and Liz Callaway – will perform songs that “capture the snap swagger and energy” of New York City.
Held at the LA County Arboretum & Botanic Garden in Arcadia, CA, the concert will offer world-renowned singers as entertainment along with fine dining options. Guests are encouraged to either bring their own picnic fare or pre-order from a select list of partnered restaurants: Claude & Co., Julienne, and Marston’s. Several food trucks will also be available, along with a full cash bar and ice cream by Choctal.
Gates for picnicking open at 5:30pm. The concert will start at 7:30pm – rain or shine – and will last for approximately two hours with a brief intermission. The Pasadena POPS’ LA County Arboretum page has more information for those planning on attending, including out-of-towners who may want to book a deal at the partnered Langham Huntington hotel.
This is the final concert of the 2014 summer series, and the event is entirely open to the public. Should you be lucky enough to attend, ticket prices start at a very fair $20; if you want to reserve a spot at a table, it’s $42. To purchase your tickets, please visit Pasadena POPS’ official site; they will also be available to buy day-of at the venue.
Graceland has always been about sacrifices, as shown on Wednesday’s episode of the USA Network series. In the eighth episode of the season – entitled “The Ends” – we see Mike making an arrangement in order to help girls involved in a sex traffic operation. Meanwhile, Johnny and Briggs have found themselves in a bit of a struggle in their personal life due to their professional obligations. Is someone bound to get burned from their sacrifices? Although Aaron wasn’t heavily featured in this episode, you can now find HD screen caps from “The Ends” in the gallery.
