Exclusive: NBC's Grimm Adds Lincoln Heights Alum Russell Hornsby

Things are looking Grimm for Russell Hornsby (Lincoln Heights) and Bitsie Tulloch (Quarterlife).

The duo have joined NBC’s buzzy drama pilot, which is being described as a fantastical cop drama in which characters from Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist.

Created by David Greenwalt (Profit) and Jim Kouf (Angel), it revolves around Nick (David Giuntoli), a cop who starts to see some humans for what they actually are — animals/beasts — and realizes it’s his destiny to protect society from them.

Hornsby and Tulloch will play Bruce’s partner in crime and love interest, respectively.

Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (Hot in Cleveland) also serve as exec producers.

    This just sounds like a rip off of the cartoon about a scaly moulded type team solving fairytales gone wrong

    Really happy for Bitsie Tulloch. I’ve been waiting for her to break out for a few years now. I guess her HBO political series didn’t get picked up.

  3. DryedMangoez says:

    Solid casting. Grimm can definitely work since Supernatural has proven a crime procedural with fantastical elements is not such a far off possibility.

    What’s the deal with Grimm, seriously?

    Wasn’t ABC or NBC working on an adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic Fables? Is Grimm just a bad rip off of that that they came up with after that project fell through or something? Or is Fables still being developed into a TV show?

    • Mikos says:

      Why couldn’t Grimm be a superior rip off? Or did you just want to point out a pet comic of yours has the same idea? Just know that an idea that can be summed up in one sentence has been done before. Fables included.

      • Michael Sacal says:

        I’ve never read Fables, so it’s not a “pet comic” of mine. I did read the report that one of the networks had optioned the comic for development as a TV show, of which nothing more has been said. Now comes Grimm, which is Volcano to Fables’ Dante’s Peak, or Armageddon to Fables’ Deep Impact (reverse the order of those as you like based on your own particular taste).

        Would Grimm exist if that network, which I can’t recall if it was ABC or NBC, had not optioned Fables?

      • murley says:

        i do read fables and have often thought it would make an excellent tv show, if done right. this concept is a lot more simplified and only covers one aspect of fables’ storylines. that said, the first thing i thought when i read about this was “kind of sounds like a rip off of fables”. which by the way is a very popular and long running series.

    Check out the kid’s book
    series “The Sisters Grimm.”. This show seems like it has a similar premise.

    Congratulations to both of you.


  7. I have to say that Russell Hornsby is very talented. I have to have claim that he is a great entertainer.
