Grimm - Russell Hornsby Interview

Thanks to Sheldon for the heads up.

Chevron One: Were you surprised by Grimm’s success?

Russell Hornsby: In a word yes. Very surprised. Every time you start a new show there are so many components that go into getting that show on the air. It’s really just a role of the dice as to whether it’s going to take and be successful. So the first thing you’re hoping for is that you have a good show – that you’re creating something of a certain quality and a certain standard. And then of course you’re hoping that the audiences take to it.

Very often there will be shows that are critically successful but just don’t catch with the audience, and vice versa, but with Grimm I think we’re had the best of both worlds. We have a show that’s been a critical success and an audience fan favorite.

Chevron One: Grimm is at times a show of two halves. One one side you have the cop procedural and on the other you have monsters and fantastical creatures and so forth. Hank seems to represent the cop show aspect of Grimm but lately the other side is starting to touch his life in a number of different ways. You got to play bad cop a little bit in ‘Three coins in a Fuchsbau.’ what was that like for you experiencing Hank expressing this other side?

RH: Obviously as an actor it’s fun to play. Generally with series regulars in a procedural things are not really character driven. It’s more story and plot driven. So when you get to tap into a character aspect it’s always fun. But I also believe – from the writers’ and developers’ standpoint – that Hank is sort of slowly and methodically becoming immersed into this world of Grimm. As an actor, that’s my hope. That he will be slowly brought into Nick’s fantastical world. That all happens in this alter-ego of the show.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
