Sasha Roiz is hard at work on season four of NBC’s hit drama Grimm, from the executive producers of Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Roiz plays the mysterious “Captain Renard,” chief of police, who appears to be the trustworthy superior and ally to Nick Burkhardt (The Grimm), but is in fact a descendant of a royal line, wielding great influence and intent on reestablishing his authority.

This dynamic character follows Roiz’s groundbreaking series regular role as Sam Adama — a brutal mob enforcer, gay married man and devoted uncle, on the critically acclaimed Syfy series Caprica, the prequel to Battlestar Galactica. Roiz also starred in the action-packed feature film Pompeii, released earlier this year by celebrated director Paul W. Anderson. The film depicts the final days of Pompeii leading to the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Roiz plays the formidable soldier Proculus, the embodiment of Rome’s might and corruption.

Roiz was later seen opposite Samuel L. Jackson in the film Unthinkable. His first starring role was in the independent science fiction thriller Extracted, which premiered at SXSW in 2012. As Tom Jacobs, he plays a scientist whose work on a memory machine leads him to become trapped inside the memories of a convicted killer.

Roiz was born in Israel and raised in Montreal. He grew up speaking Russian, French and English and studied theatre at England’s prestigious Guildford School of Acting. Upon returning to Montreal, he began to work consistently in theatre, culminating in a nomination at the esteemed “Masques Awards” (Quebec’s Theatre Awards) for his performance in Michel Tremblay’s Past Perfect. Roiz then moved to Toronto, amassing significant experience as a film and TV actor. In his first series regular television role, Sasha starred in ESPN’s debut hit series Playmakers and later in the Canadian dramatic miniseries Across the River to Motor City.

Roiz has guest starred on some of television’s most notable programs, including Emmy-nominated shows such as House, The Mentalist, CSI and NCIS. Fans of his dramatic work had the opportunity to see him score laughs when he guest starred on Castle playing an eccentric host of a beauty contest, as well as a recurring role on the cult comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, portraying one of the cool popular kids who reunites with the cast at their high school reunion.

Before becoming an actor, Roiz played the drums and sang backup vocals in the Canadian indie rock band “Tricky Woo”. They released four albums and several singles. Their album “Sometimes I Cry” was nominated for “Best Indie Album” at the 2000 JUNO Awards (Canadian Grammy Awards). When he is not working, Roiz enjoys travel, food, adventure and family.

B.J. Britt


bjbritt.siteAs an actor, B.J. Britt has fought supervillains and tangled with vampires, but it’s his decidedly ordinary unorthodox upbringing as a funeral director’s son that’s helped keep him grounded while capturing attention in hits including Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Being Mary Jane.

A self-confessed “class clown” as a child, Britt grew up with three sisters and a brother in a tight-knit family in Wilson, N.C. After graduating from East Carolina University, where he studied theater, he signed with Elite Model Management in Atlanta. Three years later, Britt moved to Los Angeles at the urging of his manager. Roles in a range of series soon followed, including the cult hit Veronica Mars; comedy series One on One and Everybody Hates Chris; and the long-running drama One Tree Hill.

In 2013, Britt signed onto the recurring role of Paul Patterson Jr., younger brother to the lead character of the hit BET series Being Mary Jane. In 2014, he added to his plate by taking on the role of Antoine Triplett on ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Britt turned what had been scheduled to be a half-season guest-starring role into a recurring character who spanned two seasons, and whose departure had repercussions on the show that can still be felt.

Britt can currently be seen in the third season of Being Mary Jane. In his downtime, he works with charitable organizations – particularly those devoted to assisting the homeless – and enjoys traveling and sports.
