Amy Acker on Grimm!

IMTA alum Amy Acker is going to be guest-starring on the hit show Grimm! According to Cinemablend: "With David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf among the creators Grimm, it shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise that a former beloved cast member of Angel would make its way over to the NBC supernatural procedural, but it’s exciting nonetheless. Grimm follows a detective who learns he’s the descendent of a long line of people who can see mythological beings disguised as regular people. Storybook baddies like the Big Bad Wolf are real, as it turns out, and Nick’s job is to protect people from the ones who mean harm." TV Line got the scoop on the latest bit of casting news for the NBC series, stating that, " Amy Acker is set to play the “fearsome Black Widow. As the Black Widow, Acker’s character ages rapidly and must drain the life out of three guys over the course of three days, every five years in order to stay young and gorgeous." Acker’s episode will air in 2012."

Amy competed at IMTA in the nineties and industry great Patrick Baca was integral in scouting and launching her at IMTA. She was one of his callbacks and he cast her on in her first TV role on Hell House for MTV. She has starred on Dollhouse, The Good Wife, Angel, Happy Town, Ghost Whisperer, How I Met Your Mother, October Road and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. She appeared as Kelly Peyton, the assassin, on the series Alias.

Stay tuned for more on Amy's exciting guest-starring role on Grimm!
