NBC’s Grimm has just started their fourth season and casting directors in Portland, Oregon need thousands of extras to fill various small roles, featured roles and background extras to work on the popular TV series. The show will be in production through the rest of the year so those interested have plenty of time to get in on the act.
Grimm comes from EPs David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf . It’s a world where fantasy and storybooks meet modern day police.
The story of Grimm focuses on Homicide detective Nick Burkhardt serving the Portland Police Department. He learns that he was a descendent from a line of so called “ guardians” or Grimms . More than his job as a police in keeping order to his town and people, he has a deeper role in keeping the balance between mythological creatures and the real world. Some of these creatures are not that nice, or perhaps very evil and that Nick should always watch out.
The series centered on all his missions and encounters with dangerous creatures and how he was helped throughout by his friend Monroe , a reformed creature who is now less evil and fights for the good side and his partner Detective Hank Griffin.
With its rich story and marvelous characters, no wonder the series is up again for its fourth season.
Grimm is based in Portland, and casting crew is looking for extras for its upcoming season. “Thousands of real people will be hired,” according to Grimm’s extra casting company, Extras Only.
Shooting for Grimm, which enters its fourth season on NBC, has already begun and will continue into next spring.
