DAVID GIUNTOLI ON “GRIMM”
By Abbie Bernstein
In GRIMM, now in its third season on NBC, David Giuntoli plays Nick Burkhardt, a Portland, Oregon police detective who learns that he’s a Grimm – someone who can see and, if need be, go up against Wesen, human-looking beings who have a supernatural side to them.
At the end of Season 2, Nick finally told his girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) about his secret identity as a Grimm. Nick’s police partner Hank (Russell Hornsby) learned earlier in Season 2, and Nick’s friend Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) has known all along, since Monroe is a werewolf-like Wesen called a Blutbad. It turns out that Nick’s boss, police Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz), also knows, because Renard is half-supernatural Royal and half-Hexenbiest, and may not be entirely trustworthy.
Leading man David Giuntoli was born in Wisconsin and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. He first crossed paths with GRIMM executive producers Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner when he did a guest stint on their half-hour comedy series HOT IN CLEVELAND. His other credits include a series regular gig on PRIVILEGED and a role in the recent feature films 6 MONTH RULE and CAROLINE AND JACKIE.
