Giovinazzo will recur on the USA Network drama as Sid Markham, the head of the LAPD’s Gang Task Force. More mind than muscle, he uses his intelligence and ability to read people as a way to build relationships and close cases — though that does not preclude the occasional act of violence.

Briggs will form a bond with Markham, seeing him as a helpful tool in taking down a cartel.

Also scoring a recurring role in Graceland Season 2 is character actor Jon Sklaroff (24, Life), playing a low-life who trades in human trafficking.
