You may remember that in Tuesday’s post we mentioned that the new shot-in-Portland NBC series Grimm is nearing the start of production, and has put out a call for extras and stand-ins.

After Tuesday’s post went live on the site, we were contacted by Matt O’Connor, the Extras Coordinator for the show:

Thank you for your help in spreading the word of potential people that want to join the Grimm extras team. We are in need of many extras for our first nine episode run until the middle of December, then possibly the next nine through May. I have created a new email that will respond with a link to our online application form. So if you hear of any one or are telling people about the show, please let them know they can go to grimmextras@gmail.com and we will get them in our system and on the scene. Thank you again.

Meanwhile, a new interview with series star David Giuntoli hit the web today in which he talks about his character in Grimm, his relationship to Silas Weir Mitchell’s character Munroe, the part that Portland plays in the show.

We’re looking forward to learning more about Giuntoli and Mitchell’s characters as the series begins shooting in the Portland area!

  1. I hate ur face 2 says:

    You need more than extras. How about a whole new cast? The acting is terrible, or am I the only one that see more than B.S.?????? God I hate You America………..

    • Everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course, but most people we’ve talked to have been quite happy with the work the Grimm cast is doing on the show.

      • Shirley says:

        I LOVE THE SHOW!!!! I’m excited for the 13th, and I wouldn’t change a thing!!!! Grimm keeps me on the edge of my seat and leaves me wanting more! :)

      • As the first Sci-FiC/op Drama I’m thrilled to see Grimm Poineer this new open territory based on our fav.child-hood stories, and it fills a void in those fans who embrace it…its undisputed.

    • Bao O. Baak says:

      Wow, if you hate America, then why don’t you stick to your own country’s programs. Don’t watch the show if you don’t like it. No one is holding a gun to your head. No one has to like the every show that airs, but there are people who find it downright hilarious. My fiance is one who couldn’t get into the plot. There are shows I don’t really like that others tell me are cool. You sound like a little brat throwing a tantrum because they can’t have their way. Some people might think your acting sucks if you are an actor. Why don’t you go sit in your corner? WAAAAAAH!

    Love the show. Living in Florida now and getting my Portland fix by watching GRIMM.

    Portland is so magical even in daylight, so many streams, glens, pocketed areas … You can sense the spirits, feel the vortexes, observe the orbs, breathe the energies. You’ve got to have at least one episode in the underground tunnels with all the Shanghaied souls …

  21. Hello am happy to send you a e-mail , and thrill to take part of something that I always wanted to do when I was young, acting I think this will be great way to see how actors perform and the hard work they do, I was born in New York City, Bronx from a Puerto Rican family, some people they told me that I will be great for roles Italian and Spanish. This is so nice that you give someone as myself a part of acting . Thank you so much to answer my e-mail.
