Alexis Denisof To Recur On ‘Grimm’, Phoebe Strole On ‘Glee’, Lindsey Kraft On ‘Pines’

Angel alum Alexis Denisof has booked an arc on another genre show, NBC’s supernatural crime drama Grimm, co-created by Angel co-creator David Greenwalt. He will play Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, the cunning, smart, funny and ruthless first cousin to Eric Renard (James Frain). Denisof is with Evolution and APA.

Phoebe Strole, member of the original cast of the 2006 musical Spring Awakening, is reuniting with co-star Lea Michele on Michele’s Fox series Glee. Strole, repped by APA and Principal Entertainment NY, will recur as Penny Owen, a sophomore in college who wants to get into nursing school and who becomes Sam’s (Chord Overstreet) new love interest.

Lindsey Kraft will recur on the Fox event series Wayward Pines, an intense thriller about Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon), who arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions. Kraft, repped by SDB Partners and Luber Roklin, will play Ethan’s sister-in-law Darla who is a professional tweeter and “life coach”. She also is recurring on HBO’s new comedy series Getting On playing Marguerite, a young nurse fresh out of school on her first round of rotations.

  • So tired of Sam (Chord Overstreet) and his love interests (at leat one per season). Boring character with boring “storylines” (relationships)

    • and all of them boring. The only good thing is maybe she will keep Blam a part which is worse then anything else besides the newbies.

    • Huh? He’s cute and sweet, and his romantic storylines are no more boring than the other hetero characters. He’s mostly a comedic character, but without those the show would be nothing but love triangle drama.

      • Not true. Sam’s relationship are just dull and it has nothing to do with the fact he is hetero (In my opinion Klaine is one of the most boring couple ever).
        Sorry but Sam is not really a comedic character (Brittany is a better “stupid” one-liner and his impressions aren’t funny in my opinion). He is a little more interesting in sad scenes like in Rumours and Naked.
        And, Sam-Mercedes-Shane, Sam-Quinn-Finn and Sam-Brittany-Santana were LOVE TRIANGLE DRAMA so…

  • Denisof is great! Enjoyed him in “Much Ado” and the Buffyverse. Glad to see a Seattle guy succeed.

  • Sam gets another love interest. Whoopie! I don’t know why they keep doing this. Chord never has any chemistry with his onscreen love interests and they always end up boring as hell. And he always ends up getting dumped lol.

  • Lindsey Kraft is so overrated. How does she keep getting work? ugh

    • If by overrated you mean really talented, and beautiful, and underrated, then I agree. That girl is great in everything she does.

  • I think that Sam’s new love interest on Glee was originally going to be Finn’s, but sadly that had to be changed. I’m still not over losing Cory Monteith-he cannot be replaced!
