'24' actor heading to 'Graceland'

GracelandHector Salazar is heading to Graceland.

Vincent Laresca, who played the villainous Salazar on 24 during the third season of the Fox series, has joined the cast of White Collar boss Jeff Eastin's new drama, Graceland.

Unfortunately, Laresca will not be playing an Elvis Presley impersonator - nor will any of the other characters on the show, as it unfortunately does not deal with the King.

Instead, Laresca will be playing Rafael Cortes, a Mexican Federale who joins Charlie (Vanessa Felito) on a case. However, Charlie does not know that Cortes has a hidden agenda.

The role will be a recurring one and last all season. 

The show will focus on a group of law-enforcement officials from diverse backgrounds who work together in an undercover beach house in Southern California. The officials will be from the DEA, Customs and the FBI. 

Daniel Sunjata and Aaron Tveit will co-star. Serinda Swan, who appeared in Breakout Kings, has also been added to the cast as a series regular, while Pedro Pascal has also joined the cast as a recurring role. 

A new promo for the series was debuted this week after White Collar. It can be seen at the Hollywood Reporter here.

The series debuts this summer. Are you in?
