NICE BOY OF THE WEEK: David Giuntoli
Our new Nice Boy of the Week is the hero in the most popular Grimm series on television today. In fact, David Giuntoli is the star of the NBC show that took us all by surprise. He’s also our second Nice Boy from Grimm, the first one being Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe). Don’t worry, we’ll work our way through all the boys of Grimm. (Looking at you, Sasha Roiz!)
I got to know a little bit more about David when I participated in a media conference call just yesterday. He spoiled a few morsels that we can expect from the final episodes of season 2 but he also let us see a bit of the man behind the Grimm.
David has a cute sense of humor which peeked out when he was asked what he thought kept the show so popular when others of its kind struggled. “I’d say the roguish good looks of lead David Giuntoli,” he quipped. Little does he know that many of his fans have been saying that for quite some time now.
When I asked Giuntoli which untold Grimm story would he like to see played out on the show, the rogue replied, “The sausage and the fork go to town.” Pretty sure the brothers Grimm never heard that one, so I can only assume it’s a Giuntoli original.
David considers himself a coffee snob. Since I’m a known coffee-holic, this interested me. “I’ve become a absolute food snob, coffee snob — absolute coffee snob. I brought Stumptown coffee home with me so I could make it here and not have to suffer the inferior coffee shops of Los Angeles.” Hmm, a new coffee for Liz to try…
Being our choice for Nice Boy of the Week, I had to ask David to share the nicest thing a fan had ever done for him. And while there are many, many stories he would like to have shared of the generosity of his fans, one in particular stood out. “Well a really great thing a young man did for me – I met him at I believe Comi-Con. And he read somewhere – And I didn’t have any that day. And he got a brand new package for me and gave it to me. Because I’m addicted to Burt’s Bees ChapStick. And it was very kind.”
“I’m sure there’ve been so – I mean there’ve been so many things that people have done and said and written. And I love it all. But that moment kind of sticks out. Because I was in such need of it. And he happened to have it and give me this gift.”
Ladies and gentlemen our Nice Boy, David Giuntoli.
Be sure to catch David on Grimm, Tuesday nights at 10/9c, on NBC.
