Eric Edelstein, 34, a Vancouver native and Hollywood actor, guest-starred as the supernatural ogre in the episode “Game Ogre” on Friday’s episode of “Grimm,” the NBC television series filmed in Portland.

Edelstein grew up in Vancouver and attended Spokane’s Gonzaga University, where he studied broadcasting. He has also been featured in “Parks and Recreation,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “The Hills Have Eyes II.”

His sister, Laura Edelstein of Seattle, confirmed that he would be on the Friday “Grimm” episode.

“Grimm” is a fantasy-crime series hybrid about a Portland homicide detective who discovers he is descended from a long line of hunters who have the ability to see the kind of bizarre creatures made popular in Grimm’s fairy tales.
