‘Grimm’ Stars Step Out For Grimm Gala, Preview ‘Map Of The Seven Knights’ Ep
The stars of “Grimm” stepped out in Portland for the second Grimm Gala, presented by Comcast and NBCUniversal — an event that raised $386,000 for Portland’s OSHU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
“We’re going to meet Monroe’s uncle from the homeland in Bavaria and we have a wonderful actor [playing him],” David Giuntoli, who plays detective Nick Burkhardt, told AccessHollywood.com at the Grimm Gala last weekend in Portland. “It’s very Monroe-ian. You can tell [there are] some genetics going on there and we find via this uncle some new Grimm-robilia.”
Silas Weir Mitchell said “Groundhog Day” alum Rick Overton, who plays the character, will make an impression in the new episode, which is called “Map of The Seven Knights.”
“Rick Overton – that guy is a force of nature. He’s brilliant. He’s perfect casting and he’s a joy to be around and it’s a cool story line,” Silas told reporters over breakfast last week.
“I always talk about my relatives in the old country, but when you see the casting of [this character] and you realize who it’s going to be, you say to yourself, ‘Well, this is irresistible,'” Silas said, noting that Rick brings a real “Monroe-vian quality” the part. “We share a kind of like mania. He’s brilliant and just a lovely human being.”
