NBC Pilot 'Grimm' Finds Its Lead

Deadline says:

EXCLUSIVE: David Giuntoli (MTV's Turn the Beat Around) has landed the lead in NBC's drama pilot Grimm. Created by David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf and to be directed by Marc Buckland, it is described as a dark but fantastical cop drama about a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist. Grimm 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. Giuntoli, repped by CESD and Hofflund/Polone, was also cast by NBC last pilot season when he got a guest spot in the pilot for hourlong comedy Love Bites.

Something about this guy kinda tells me he looks like he coul dhave been a really good choice for Superman.

JL2119d ago

He does look like he could make a nice Superman. I think Cavill will do a fine job too though.

Soldierone2119d ago

Or just a younger outgoing character in some movie, hopefully this show pushes him in that direction.

Sunny_D2119d ago

It's probably because he looks like Christopher Reeve.

I don't really see the resemblance.

Soldierone2118d ago

I think Routh is the only identical one lol thats just my opinion though.

JL2119d ago

This sounds like an interesting premise. Though it also sounds like one that could be either really cool, or really suck. I'll have to keep an eye out and check out a trailer for it when it comes that time.

Sunny_D2118d ago

Or it could be between. Where you don't care for it? But, you wouldn't care for it if it sucked, so...

Soldierone2119d ago

This sounds super awesome. I always love Grimm Story Tales adaptations, especially the comic book stuff, but like JL said it could still come out to suck. I mean this premise alone focuses on beasts and such.

It would be cool to write a modern style of each story and tell that through the show. But it doesn't sound like its that.

"Grimm 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."

I think it's hilarious that they threw "good looking" in there. The actual show sounds pretty odd though.

Sunny_D2119d ago

What they can't judge a guy? Oh yeah, but what does looks have to do with his role, lol. Does he charm his witnesses to confess?

Luckily a woman wrote the article xD
