Better known as Eddie Sutton from ABC Family’s hit drama “Lincoln Heights,” Russell Hornsby is excited for season 2 of NBC’s mystery-crime show, “Grimm.”
Russell plays detective Hank Griffin with the Portland Oregon Police Department, who partners with detective Nick Burkhardt. Nick is the last bloodline of the Grimms, hunters who keep humans safe from supernatural creatures.
“[Nick’s] able to see evil for what it really is, sort of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He can see the wolf,” he said.
Unlike some season spin-offs that fast-forward when a new season starts, Russell confirmed that all the loose ends would be tied up, so viewers won’t be left hanging. Last season ended when Russell’s character saw a creature morph, starting him off in an unstable place in season two.
“He’s battling with his sanity, [and] wondering if he should remain a police officer, or if he should quit because these things that he’s seeing are really messing with his mind,” he said.
Russell said although he’s playing an officer again, his new character is the complete opposite of Eddie Sutton.
“Eddie Sutton was somewhat of a do-gooder, Hank Griffin is not that at all. Eddie Sutton saw the good in everyone, and I think Hank Griffin knows everyone has the potential to be bad,” he said.
He said viewers can expect more mythology, danger and action. He even hinted that there could possibly be a third season.
“I think we have the chance to really be around for a while. We’ve gotten some wonderful and enthusiastic fans in a very short time,” he said.
Just in case you missed the first season of “Grimm,” it’s now available on Blu-ray and DVD. Season 2 premieres on Monday, August 13 at 10 p.m. EST, following the London Olympics. “Grimm” will premiere again Friday, August 17 at 9 p.m. EST.
