*Last month, NBC gave its freshman fairy tale procedural “Grimm” a full season pickup and moved it from Fridays to the more ratings-friendly timeslot of Thursdays at 10 p.m.

This is great news for Hollywood workhorse Russell Hornsby, who will continue to co-star as homicide detective Hank Griffin when the show resumes its first season on Jan. 13.

“Grimm” revolves around Griffin’s partner Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli). He discovered in the pilot that he’s part of a family line of hunters known as “Grimms,” who fight to keep humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world.

Hornsby, on his Hollywood grind for more than 10 years now, has picked up critical acclaim throughout the years for his leading work in such TV dramas as “Gideon’s Crossing” and “In Treatment.” The actor, whose last regular TV gig was a starring role in ABC Family’s “Lincoln Heights,” spoke to EURweb’s Lee Bailey about having to give up his “leading man” title for “Grimm.”
