For all the reality-show stars that say they want to use their notoriety as a springboard to an acting career, relatively few actually pull it off. Giuntoli, a former "Road Rules" and "The Challenge" contestant, has managed it, though, and steps up to his first leading-man role in "Grimm." He plays a cop who discovers he's the last in a line of Grimms, and that the namesake fairy tales were in fact early instances of criminal profiling. Giuntoli keeps that farfetched premise firmly grounded, which is no mean feat.
