More TV pilot casting news has come in (boy, are genre-themed shows popular this year!), this time for NBC’s dark but fantastical cop drama “Grimm”. Joining the cast as a “special guest star” is Kate Burton.
Over the years Burton’s career has included varied roles in the likes of Big Trouble in Little China, “The Practice”, “Rescue Me”, and “Law & Order”. According to TVLine in “Grimm” Burton will play the aunt of Nick (David Giuntoli), a police detective who starts to see humans as beast/animals and discovered that he has a legacy – to protect “humans” from these beasts. Aunty Kate possesses some dark secrets of her own, and if “Grimm” gets a series pickup, there’s a good chance her character will recur.
Other cast members include Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, and Silas Weir Mitchell. “Grimm” was created by David Greenwalt (“Profit”) and Jim Kouf (“Angel”), and the pilot’s being directed by Marc Buckland (“Murder One”, “My Name is Earl”). Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (“Hot in Cleveland”) serve as executive producers.
Look for more on “Grimm” soon!
