Tommy will have a recurring role as a guest star in NBC’s Grimm, starting with episode 18 season 3 “The Law of Sacrifice,” which should air later this spring.
The show films in Portland, Oregon. He shot Episode 18 in mid February.
According to this TV guide story:
“The Southland and Criminal Minds alum will play FBI agent Weston Steward in Episode 18. Because of his experience and capability, Prince Vikton (Alexis Denisof) views Weston as an invaluable resource when stateside issues need to be handled swiftly and precisely.”

Tommy has worked with the show’s executive producers before – on the film “Secret Admirer” when he was 17.
Being the notoriously weird place that it is (I live in the Portland area), the city’s free paper “The Portland Mercury” posted this odd story about Tommy being in town (Tommy thought it was funny, although he never talked to anybody there and he didn’t write it): Can you help me find Powell’s?. (Powell’s is a local iconic bookstore, and Tommy did visit it once on his trip).
They also had this story noting that he was in town: Celebrity Lookout: C. Thomas Howell is Heading Our Way!
