"Lost" actor Mark Pellegrino will guest star in Season 2 of NBC’s "Grimm," which premieres Aug. 13.
Pellegrino will play one of Detective Hank Griffin’s (Russell Hornsby) high school buddies, Jarold Kempfer, whose daughter is missing. Unknown to Hank, Kempfer is also a coyote-like creature called a coyotl.
The series, which is inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales, fuses elements of fantasy to a crime drama format and chronicles a dark but fantastical world in which fairy tale characters exist.
It follows detective Nick Burckhardt (David Giuntoli) as he embraces his family's legacy of protecting mankind from the supernatural creatures of the world. He is aided by a reformed Blutbad, Eddie Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), who has mastered his race's dark impulses.
"Grimm" is executive produced by David Greenwalt ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel") and Jim Kouf; both serve as writers on the series too.
Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner ("Will & Grace") also hold executive producing duties on the series, which is spearheaded by Universal Television and Hazy Mills Productions. David Simkins (Angel, "Warehouse 13") is a co-producer.
Season 2 will feature 22-episodes.
Grimm’s Fairy Tales is a collection of German origin fairy tales published by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in 1812.
