The cast for NBC’s Grimm is finally starting to fill out. Former Real World/ Road Rules Challenge contestant David Giuntoli has already boarded as the lead. Now he’ll be joined by former Lonelygirl 15 star Bitsie Tulloch and In Treatment patient Russell Hornsby.
With a wave of big movie stars joining network pilots like Ethan Hawke, Marioa Bello and Amber Heard, it’s a bit surprising a project of this magnitude didn’t attract bigger names, but sometimes celebrities can just get in the way of new talent. Many of television’s biggest dramas cast near nobodies and went on to raging success. Let’s hope that’s the case here.
According to Deadline, Grimm follows a group of detectives struggling against characters from fairytales come to life. One, played by Giuntoli, begins to see it as his destiny to ward the creatures off. Details on the new cast members’ roles haven’t yet been released, but it’s a pretty safe bet that they’ll play support cops.
With so much competition from established stars, it’ll be interesting to see whether Grimm will get noticed. I wouldn’t count on seeing this next year, but stranger things have happened.
Enthusiastic about Clue, case-of-the-week mysteries, the NBA and cookies at Disney World. Less enthusiastic about the pricing structure of cable, loud noises and Tuesdays.
