"I grew up playing instruments and I always sang," he said of his start in theater. "I remember I was in 9th grade and I'd never done a play before and somebody asked me if I was going to audition for the school play, which was 'Little Shop of Horrors', and I said 'No, why would I do that?' and they said, 'You know there are a lot of girls who do the musical!' and I ended up getting the lead."

The sophomore season of "Graceland" follows the high-stakes investigative lives of six undercover federal agents who live together in a government-seized Southern California beachfront house. These FBI, DEA and ICE agents, whose lies are their lives, struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy. This is especially challenging when the former FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, "Les Miserables") returns to "Graceland" to run point on a dangerous mission against the cartel. Meanwhile, Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, "Rescue Me"), still concerned about the missing recording that implicates him in a murder, attempts to clean up his life and repair his relationships.
The series also stars Vanessa Ferlito ("The Sopranos"), Manny Montana ("Chicago Code"), Brandon Jay McLaren("Falling Skies") and Serinda Swan ("Breakout Kings").

The series was one of 2013's top new cable dramas of the summer, capturing a broad freshman audience, averaging 4M total viewers.
