Glamour’s “On a Date With David Giuntoli”

One year ago, on a rainy, humid evening in St. Louis, I was playing catch with a fellow baseball fanatic in the underground tunnels of Busch Stadium (home of the St. Louis Cardinals). We were goofing off in the front offices, taking ridiculous photos on golf carts, and chatting about life in Hollywood while stuffing ourselves with pretzel sticks. Who knew a rain delay could be so fun? But with David Giuntoli, star of the NBC hit cult drama, Grimm, it’s no surprise. Charismatic and down-to-earth, he was the clear choice for our fourth installment of On a Date With….


Over lunch at Los Feliz hotspot Little Dom’s (a favorite of Jon Hamm’s), we chatted about everything ranging from calling Glamour readers at home (yep, he’ll do it) to a guy’s biological clock (it totally exists). Get ready for the most honest and revealing date yet.

Glamour: Welcome back to L.A.! You’re in Portland shooting Grimm for eight months throughout the year, so what have you been up to during your summer hiatus?
David Giuntoli: I know! It’s like I’m on a space shuttle I’m gone for so long. [Laughs] I’ve been writing, I’ve been producing this small movie, and I’ve been going out…a lot. Like I was a college freshman. I’m probably sleeping until 10 A.M. after going to bed at 2 A.M.

Glamour: So if a fan gives you their phone number, I say you have to call it.
David: Only if they are a child.
Glamour: No, not just if they are a child.
David: If someone sends a phone number, I will call them. I would. No one says that. They all want a signed photo nowadays. I will call them. I will call them, I’ll block my number, but I will do it. So send me your numbers, readers!
Glamour: Promise?
David: Promise! I will do that. I would rather call the fan than write. It seems more personal and fun. So send me your phone numbers, and I’ll call you. Will you print that?

So, send David your phone numbers!!! There’s TONS more from the interview, check it out in the link below!

Meet Pinoy Actor Who Played ‘Aswang’ in Grimm

Born in Dagupan City, Philippines, Alain Uy moved to the US with his family when he was six. But he never forgot the Filipino tales that he grew up hearing about, including stories about the aswang.

Earlier this year, in NBC’s “Grimm,” the actor ended up being the first Filipino to play an “aswang” in a major primetime American show.

“It’s not often that you get the chance to do something that’s really close to home especially in Hollywood, where a lot of the parts are kind of general-Asian kind of thing, and when it’s specific like that, specifically Filipino, it was great to read the story,” Uy said.

Uy, who was named after Hollywood legend Alain Delon, was a shy kid growing up. It was his brother who encouraged him to come out of his shell by enrolling in a drama class.

“He made me do it and as soon as I got on the stage, I was, like: this is freeing to me. This is something that I felt was inside of me but I just never knew how to get it out,” he said.

The actor has appeared in television shows like “Parenthood” and “Sleeper Cell.”

Not content with working in front of the camera, Uy is also a writer-director and has worked with music superstar Pharrell Williams and also produces commercials.

“I love to be able to control my own destiny which is why I’m starting to write and direct, and I see that as a way for people like myself or other actors to get out there more and take the control out of their hands and put it into yours,” he said.

His latest movie is the award-winning film “A Leading Man” which tells about the struggles that Asian-American actors go thorough in Hollywood.

Uy is also developing a TV show about world-renowned deejays.
