Alexis Denisof to Join Cast of Grimm
Alexis Denisof -Wesley Wyndham-Price of Angel- will be getting another overly long name when he joins Grimm for a season 3 arc. He will play a Royal; cousin to Captain Renard’s half brother, and his name is *deep breath* Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf.
So far there’s no more information, but if he’s a Royal it’s very likely he and Nick will be coming to blows somewhere along the line. Grimm co-creator David Greenwalt was a writer/producer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and spin-off Angel, both of which featured Alexis Denisof. He’s more recently appeared in How I Met Your Mother alongside wife Alyson Hannigan (If you’re very behind, Yes: Wesley married Willow!) and in Joss Whedon’s version of Much Ado About Nothing.
Grimm will return to US screens in October; the UK has yet to get a premiere date.
