James Fain (True Blood, The Cape) has been cast in the role of Eric Reynard, brother of Grimm‘s Captain Reynard (Sasha Roiz).

We recently reported that Grimm’s second season would feature the secretive Captain’s brother, and that the role would be recurring.

Described as a a sophisticated, handsome European man in his 40′s and carrying some issues about his brother, Frain’s Eric will make his debut in episode 2.01 ‘Bad Teeth.’

The episode will see a new threat in Marnassier, a very muscular and imposing man who morphs into a Mauvais Dentes, a saber-toothed killing machine who is virtually unstoppable and always deadly.

Grimm returns to NBC later this year.
