How crazy is the NBC drama “Grimm,” which is loosely adapted from the classic fairytales?

So many ancient beasts, crazies and creepies running around, viewers need a scorecard to keep track!

Russell Hornsby interview with Mr. Media, Bob Andelman

You can LISTEN to this interview with actor RUSSELL HORNSBY, star of NBC’s GRIMM, by clicking the audio player above!

RUSSELL HORNSBY audio excerpt: “The creativity in the names – a lot of consonants, you know what I mean? And they’re all original names from the mind of (show co-creator) Jim Kouf who, I think, sneezes and comes up with them.” 

As Portland homicide detective Hank Griffin, Russell Hornsby is one of the good guys. He and his partner, Detective Nick Burkhardt, are doing their level best to keep peace in Oregon between humanity and its roster of mythological, sometimes pathological creatures.

The fact that Burkhardt himself is desceded from a long line of criminal profilers is a plus for them.

As for Hornsby, you might recognize him as a cop from “Lincoln Heights” or his season on HBO’s “In Treatment.” He also starred opposite Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in “Fences.”

If you hesitated to try this show out because you thought it would never last, think again: “Grimm” is performing well in the ratings in its 9 p.m. Friday timeslot and was recently picked up for a full season.
