TV: A Fairy Tale Cast for ‘Grimm’

“Prison Break” alum and Halloween II star Silas Weir Mitchell has landed a lead role opposite David Giuntoli in NBC’s drama pilot “Grimm,” according Deadline.

Created by David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf and to be directed by Marc Buckland, Grimm is described as a dark but fantastical cop drama about a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist. It centers on Nick Burckhardt (Giuntoli), a good-looking detective who starts to see humans as beast/animals and discovered that he has a legacy – to protect “humans” from these beasts.

Mitchell will play Eddie Monroe, a reformed big bad wolf who has tamed his murderous instincts through a strict regimen of diet and Pilates. He starts helping Nick with his cases.
