Silas Weir Mitchell: I Am A Different Kind Of Werewolf

Posted: Updated:

Silas Weir Mitchell thinks his wolfy "Grimm' character Monroe could totally take on Twilight's werewolf Jacob... but only if he didn't rely solely on brute strength.

"If you're asking if Taylor Lautner's character could kick my a--, yeah he probably could," Mitchell tells TVGuide.com. "I might have the wiles, but if he got the jump on me, I'd be dead meat. I'm older than he is, so I know some tricks, but like I said, if it were pound for pound, I'm dead."

On the 'Grimm' website, Monroe is described as a "a reformed Blutbad,"  And that's Blutbad with a capital B, thank you.

Silas explains exactly what that means to Steve Edwards and Maria Quiban on Good Day L.A.
