David Giuntoli may play homicide detective Nick Burkhardt in NBC's fairy tale-tinged crime procedural Grimm, but in real life, he's not that stoic when faced with corpses — especially the fake ones used on the series.
"I'm not usually easily disturbed, but I've walked on the set and been absolutely disgusted to my core," he tells TVGuide.com. "I'll always remember where I was when I saw this specific crime scene [in 'Danse Macabre']. There were rats crawling out of the stomach, out of the mouth of a corpse. The corpses, the prosthetics are so real that until you touch them, your brain doesn't understand that it's fake. It's terrifying. There's a lot of eating lunch in my trailer far, far away from the morgue set."
Silas Weir Mitchell
Silas Weir Mitchell thinks his wolfy Grimm character Monroe could totally take on Twilight's werewolf Jacob... but only if he didn't rely solely on brute strength.
"If you're asking if Taylor Lautner's character could kick my a--, yeah he probably could," Mitchell tells TVGuide.com. "I might have the wiles, but if he got the jump on me, I'd be dead meat. I'm older than he is, so I know some tricks, but like I said, if it were pound for pound, I'm dead."

It's a close encounter of the rodent kind on Grimm.

Last Man Standing, Homeland, The X Factor
So many new shows, so little time! With a handful of fall TV casualties already — RIP Charlie's Angels, Playboy Club, Free Agents, How to Be a Gentleman and H8R (and it's not looking too good for Prime Suspect or Man Up either) — it's time to assess what's worth keeping on your DVR, and what you can safely skip.
For now, we're high on American Horror Story, a spooky mash-up unlike anything else on TV, and Homeland, a twisty thriller anchored by two riveting performances. We're cautiously optimistic about Suburgatory, for those who miss Gilmore Girls, but then there are the shows we're thisclose to ditching...

From the cult-TV corner: It's rare to see a ballsy action heroine like Nikita (Maggie Q) in a state of panic, but in this week's typically tense episode of The CW's Nikita (8/7c), the first of the season I've been able to screen in advance, she places an anguished call to Michael in London to utter three unlikely words: "I lost Berkoff."
Grimm not only teaches about fairytales, but chemistry, too!
This Friday's episode is riddled with the consequences of real chemistry when a Ziegevolk, a magical creature who's able to seduce women with pheromones, goes on the rampage. To track the Ziegevolk down, Nick (David Giuntoli) will enlist...
Is the TV audience ready to embrace a second fantasy series this fall based on fairy-tale legends? ABC's whimsical Once Upon a Time got off to a strong start last Sunday, but NBC's Grimm — launching tonight (9/8c) — faces much tougher odds. You might almost say it's cursed.
