Reg E. Cathey, who played The Wire‘s journalist-turned-political-aide Norman Wilson, is headed to Grimm, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Exactly how Cathey’s character fits into NBC’s Portland-based fairytale is unclear; we do know his Baron Samedi is a “curious stranger” who’ll be around for the final two episodes of Season 2.
Cathey’s TV credits include Oz, Law & Order: SVU and the Netflix original series House of Cards.
