Grimm Adds An Angel Alum and Whedon Fave to the Mix

The call of the supernatural has brought Alexis Denisof back into the world of TV monsters. The Angel alum will have a recurring role as Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf in the third season of Grimm.

After playing demon hunter and resident intellectual Wesley Wyndam-Pryce on both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, Denisof is well suited for a spot on NBC’s dark fairytale show. Though not much is known about Viktor, he is the first cousin of Eric Renard (James Frain) and is described as a cunning con man.

As Grimm fans will recall, Eric is half-brother to the always conflicted Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz). Eric’s British accent gives me hope that we will once again get to enjoy Denisof’s perfect faux accent from his Angel/Buffy days.

Denisof currently enjoys a recurring guest role as Sandy Rivers on wife Alyson Hannigan’s How I Met Your Mother. He recently starred as, in my opinion, the best Benedick to date in Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing opposite fellow Angel alum, Amy Acker.

His role on Grimm, which returns October 25th, will reunite him with Angel co-creator David Greenwalt, who co-created the NBC show as well.
