Character actor Mark Pellegrino has had a career full of amazingly diverse roles. He was a thug attacking Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski. He played Jacob, the embodiment of goodness, on Lost. He then switched to playing Lucifer, the embodiment of evil, on Supernatural. And we certainly can't forget his Oscar caliber performance in the Hulk Hogan flick No Holds Barred. Okay...maybe it would be better if we did forget about that one. All kidding aside, Pellegrino is one of the most sought after guest actors working today, booking roles on Being Human, Chuck, The Closer, Prison Break, Dexter, and many more, all within the last five years.
Pellegrino is never at a loss for work, and he's now signed up to bring his special brand of gravitas and/or smugness to the second season of NBC's fantasy procedural Grimm. Supernatural's former prince of darkness will portray Jarold Kempfer, an old high school buddy of Russell Hornsby's Hank Griffin, who comes to his friend for help after his daughter goes missing. What Hank doesn't know is that Jarold is a supernatural being himself, a part-coyote creature called a Coyotl. Will this lead to trouble for lead duo Hank and Nick? You better believe it.
Pellegrino is actually the third Lost alumnus to pay a visit to Grimm. Titus Welliver (The Man In Black, brother and counterpart to Jacob), and Daniel Roebuck (Leslie Arzt, who really shouldn't have handled such old dynamite) have both previouly dropped by.
Do you think Pellegrino will make a lasting impression on Grimm?
