Angel alum Alexis Denisof is getting back into the supernatural business.
EW has confirmed the actor will appear on the upcoming third season of NBC’s Grimm. He will play a character named Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, a cunning man who also happens to be first cousin of Eric Renard (James Frain). (As you’ll recall, Eric and Sasha Roiz’s Sean Renard are only half-brothers.)
The role reunites Denisof, currently a recurring player on How I Met Your Mother (on which his wife Alyson Hannigan stars), with Angel co-creator David Greenwalt, who also co-created Grimm with Jim Kouf. He is set to appear on a recurring basis during the new season, which kicks off Oct. 25.
