Back in February I had the opportunity to visit the Graceland set with a handful of other reporters. While on the ground in Miami, we observed shooting, rummaged around the impressive sets and spoke with all the stars. Each of whom kept returning to a similar sentiment: that the show truly hits its stride with episode five, which happens to air tonight!
Titled O-Mouth, the episode features Mike getting deeper into Bello's organization, while Briggs and Charlie resume their former identities as a sexually-charged couple to get intel on a mysterious drug supplier called Odin. A situation that star Manny Montana says will help clearly define the next stretch of episodes!
ETonline: In the last episode Johnny made a big, almost lethal, mistake. How does he grow from that?
Manny Montana: Johnny was the newest person in the house before Mike moved in, so he still makes dumbass mistakes. He thinks it's a game, but as the season progresses, he'll come to realize how real this job is and how he needs to start being a little more like Jakes. Even though he thinks Jakes is too serious, Johnny will start to figure out that he needs to be a little more like that, otherwise he’ll keep getting into stupid situations like this. And I'm glad he starts to learn because I was worried Johnny would just always be the sidekick comedy relief -- as the season goes on, he'll still be humorous, but he really grows up.
