Pellegrino will play Jarold Kempfer, one of Hank’s (Russell Hornsby) high school buddies whose daughter goes missing. Hank doesn’t know, though, that his old pal is also a coyotl, or coyote-like creature.

Pellegrino is the third Lostie to appear on the show; Titus Welliver portrayed Farley, a Grimm who had the ablity to change into a steinadler, and Daniel Roebuck played Lt. Orson, a Portland arson cop investigating fires linked to Silas Weir Mitchell’s Monroe.

  • Oh phew, it’s just as a guest star. When I saw the headline, I feared he had joined the cast, and I want him back on Supernatural. He is so deliciously and mischievously entertaining as Lucifer.

    • Yes, I love my Lucifer!

  • I love it! I never watched Lost but I definitely watch Supernatural and Being Human and Mark Pellegrino was fantastic on both. Now I’m even more excited to see Grimm.

  • Not only is he the 3rd Lost Star, but also the 2nd Supernatural “Angel” ;-) But nobody mentioned that… still, I’m excited… this is awesome… first Sebastian Roché and now Mark Pellegrino! YAY :-)

    • He will be the 3rd SN actor/actress to crossover for an episode. The girl who played the young Mary (Campbell) Winchester was in the episode of the Three Bears.

  • Grimm is just getting better and better. Could very well be the No 1 show on TV next fall. Oh wait, its already my No 1 show.

    • It’s a barely adequate show…..they are beating around the bush.

  • OMG he’s everywhere!! And on all my fav shows. Which wouldn’t be bad if he were, say, Alex O’Laughlin. But alas he’s not. Go away Mark – getting tired of seeing your mug all the time.

  • Actaully, Mark will be the fourth Lostie to guest on Grimm. Neil Hopkins, who played Charlie’s brother on Lost, guest starred on the episode Cat and Mouse as Ian Harmon, a fuchsbau freedom fighter with a history with Rosalee!

  • so glad we’re getting Grimm a month ahead of other shows. YAY for august!

  • Elizabeth Mitchell would be perfect! I think she lives in Seattle so it wouldn’t be too far for her to go. It would be great to see Josh Holloway again too. He has been off of my tv for far too long!

  • A coyote should be played by a Native American.

    • says who?there are coyotes in many countries.

    • I would have said by a Mexican, since coyotl is a Mexican word.

  • Then he is the 4th actor from SPN … yay… :D … Titus Welliver also played War, the horseman

  • A Coyote is a perfect match.

  • I’d love to see Jorge Garcia on ‘Grimm’ – He’d be absolutely perfect!

  • My second favorite guest star. His roles on Supernatural and The Closer have been totally different characters but played wonderfully.

  • Yes, more Supernatural actors need to come to Grimm! Since SPN is going down hill (plot wise) anyway they need these awesome actors on an even more awesome show! If there was an announcement that Richard Speight Jr was going to be on Grimm i think that would just perfect the show even more so (and make my fangirl side go crazy).

  • I’d rather see some Lost _Girl_ actors on Grimm and vice versa. These are currently my two favorite shows.
    I was wondering when they would get around to having more Native North American mythological creatures on Grimm.

  • Josh Holloway as anything. I really enjoy Grimm and this would make it even better.

  • Can’t get enough of Mark! Loved him in Supernatural and Being Human. I only watched the first season of lost and then got tired of it. I wish he could also be back on Supernatural somehow. He was such a great, sexy Devil!

    • How could I forget his awesome work as the lawyer on ‘The Closer as well. His dry humor and attitude were something else.

      Comment by Mrs. Peele – August 9, 2012 12:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hes actually the fifth. The first two they mentioned, then the before mentioned Neil Hopkins, who played Charlie’s brother on Lost, and then the guy who played Phil, the annoying Dharma Initiative worker in season 5 in the episode about the womanizing goat.
