Soap vet Jordi Vilasuso (Tony, GUIDING LIGHT; Griffin, ALL MY CHILDREN) begins a two-episode arc on tonight's episode of GRACELAND, titled "The Wires," airing on USA. The Emmy winner will be playing Paulo, a shady businessman with connections to gun-runners and money launderers. Jakes (played by series star Brandon Jay McLaren) has to con Paulo in the course of an undercover investigation.
"Paulo's very rich and makes his money in the gun-running business," Vilasuso tells Soaps In Depth. "We shot a lot of scenes at a horse track and I actually got to see them racing while we were shooting. Can't ask for more magic than that!"
GRACELAND airs at 10 p.m. EST. Vilasuso's storyline will continue in the Thursday, September 10, episode, "Dog Catches Car."
