David Giuntoli stars in NBC’s acclaimed drama series “Grimm,” now in its 5th season, as Nick Burkhardt, the steadfast Portland detective turned Grimm-creature profiler. Giuntoli will next appear in two feature films, BUDDYMOON, and the Michael Bay directed, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, about the U.S. embassy attack in Libya.

Giuntoli has also appeared in the CBS pilot “The Quinn-tuplets,” alongside Amber Tamblyn and Molly Parker, as well as the NBC series “Love Bites.”
Giuntoli grew up in St. Louis and attended Indiana University. After moving to Los Angeles, he studied under Christopher Fields before joining the acclaimed Echo Theater Company.
Borg relocated to Los Angeles initially to further his music career, but almost immediately found work as an actor, host, and online personality, due in large part to his friendship with former roommate–and current star of NBC’s Grimm–David Giuntoli, whom he met several years ago in Europe while Giuntoli was traveling.
