Extras wanted in Portland on ‘Grimm’


Story time is over..? Portland, OR Casting Call

Looking for casting calls in Portland Oregon? NBC’s Grimm is now filming the new season of the cop drama meets supernatural series.

 NBC puts a new twist on fairy tales with ‘Grimm’. The series which is inspired by the Grimm Brother’s Fairy Tales is about a Portland Homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt played by David Giuntoli who learns that he is also a Grimm. His ancestors have been Grimms, with skills and abilities that helped them fight supernatural creatures who can also live in the human world. The show focuses on mythological creatures called “wesen.”  The creatures may appear to be human but have a way of transforming into their creature state when pissed. Detective Nick Burkhardt follows the path set by his Grimm lineage in fighting the supernatural creatures and he is on the case. Seems many of his homicide cases overlap with his Grimm roots as they are committed by the creatures. Nick, along with his non-Grimm partner are on the case tracking down the creatures responsible for so many of his case load.

The show just began production of the new season a week or so back and casting directors have stated that they will be needing 1000’s of extras for the series in the upcoming months. The show films in the Portland area and they are looking for extras who live in and around Portland to possibly be cast for the series. The show just began filming season 4 and reports state that it will be filming for months to come into the spring of 2015.
