Grimm Turns Dark Knight Rises Actor into Badger
NBC’s Grimm is taking its casting choices up a notch, which is what I would say of any series that borrowed actors who can be seen in any number of Christopher Nolan films. His latest, The Dark Knight Rise – you know, the one every one was talking about recently – had actor Josh Stewart in a medium to small role as Bane’s second in command. His mere presence in a Nolan film is enough for me to automatically consider him better than every actor who has not had that pleasure. It’s like being touched by God, so it makes sense Grimm would want to hire Stewart in order to get some of that heavenly love.
According to TVLine Stewart will guest star as Bill in the seventh episode of Grimm’s second season. Bill is your average, middle-class man with the slightly less than average secret of actually being a badger-like creature known as a Drang-Zorn. No other official information has been released, so I had to do a little bit of digging. For those of you unfamiliar with the German language, Drang means “urge” or “impulse” and Zorn means “anger” or “wrath.” If you put the two words together you get a creature that is plagued by impulsive anger. Given that its closely associated with a badger I’m not that surprised it has anger issues.
Grimm will be making an early return to television when it has its Season 2 premiere on Monday, Aug. 13. It’s definitely not a bad idea to get an early start on bringing in new viewers, but if Grimm simply featured more actors from Christopher Nolan films – Ellen Page, Hugh Jackman, Carrie-Ann Moss, just to name a few – I can only assume its numbers would triple. Any other outcome just doesn’t make a lick of sense.
