Before season 3 began, executive producers David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf announced that our favorite Blutbad Monroe would get a visit from his parents. Now officially, Grimm has cast Monroe’s parents. Dee Wallace (E.T. the Extraterrestrial) and Chris Mulkey (Friday Night Lights) will play the Wesen’s mom and dad, Alice and Bart, later this season, TVLine reported exclusively.
“They’re a little old-fashioned,” Greenwalt warned, implying that Monroe’s purist folks may not like the idea of their son being romantically involved with a Fuchsbau — and friends with a Grimm. TVLine hears that Monroe has to convince his parents to open up to his way of life or risk destroying his relationship with them.
