‘Once Upon A Time’ Adding MORE Disney Characters, Plus ‘LOST’ Stars?
Boy, it’s been a busy couple of weeks for ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time.’ Not only have several recurring characters been upgraded to series regulars, and Disney characters Mulan and Sleeping Beauty been added to the mix, but now at least three more classic characters have been added! Plus, what ‘LOST‘ stars (that’s right, multiple) are being eyed for new roles?
According to TVGuide, ‘Once Upon A Time’ season 2 is about to get even more Disney-fied. In addition to the recent casting of Jamie Chung as Mulan and Sarah Bolger as Sleeping Beauty, today series creators (and former ‘LOST’ producers) Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have revealed that ‘The Little Mermaid’s Ariel, as well as Aladdin’s Aladdin and Jafar will make appearances in the second season.
No casting announcements have been made for any of the three roles, but the show-runners also revealed that they’re actively looking to cast former ‘LOST’ star Jorge Garcia, now that ‘Alcatraz‘ was passed over for a second season by FOX. Previously, the show has featured fellow Island alum Alan Dale (King George) and Emilie De Ravin (Belle).
But that’s not all! Kitsis suggested that ‘LOST’ player Naveen Andrews would make a fine fit for Jafar, while ‘LOST’s former executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof jokingly suggested “a fantastic twist with Josh Holloway revealing that Prince Charming is an impostor and he’s the real prince.” Even further, Lindelof joked about seeing the hated Nikki and Paulo as Lady and the Tramp-type figures. “I just want to watch those two share a plate of spaghetti!”
