Any clues as to whether Once Upon a Time viewers are literally going to “hell” aka the Underworld, and if so, as a whole cast? Or is it possible it comes to Storybrooke? –Karen
Details — on any confirmed trip to Hell or otherwise – are scarce thus far, but this much I can share: For an early Season 5B episode, the ABC series is guest-casting the roles of a “dashing, strapping young man” who is “single-minded in his pursuit of his destiny: to be the greatest hero who ever lived” and a “plucky, 18-year-old female adventurer with a sly sense of humor and a tough, no-nonsense spirit.”

MEET "DG"

ABC’s Once Upon a Time has cast one helluva role for the second half of Season 5.
TV vet Greg Germann (Ally McBeal) has landed the heavily recurring role of what is for now being dubbed “The Distinguished Gentleman,” TVLine has learned exclusively.

ABC would confirm no further details on the character or his storyline, but the casting call described him as “a mysterious figure with god-like powers who is always clad in a perfectly tailored suit,” someone who can “strike fear into people just by being friendly” and “the last person you ever want to share a drink with.”

Last month at New York Comic-Con, Once co-creator Eddy Kitsis summed up Season 5B as “hell,” spurring speculation that our heroes next will brave the Underworld and perhaps clash with Hades himself. Subsequent casting calls cited by Matt’s Inside Line — though not confirmed — suggest we will meet Hercules and Megara at some point this spring.
Germann will make his debut in this season’s 12th episode aka the series’ 100th, which will launch the second half of the season sometime in March.

In addition to his aforementioned run as Ally McBeal‘s Richard Fish, Germann’s TV credits include arcs on House of Lies, Raising Hope, NCIS, SVU and Chasing Life.

young Snow White Returns... and Hercules and Meg has been cast

Image

Once Upon a Time is officially going Greek.
An ABC spokesperson confirms for TVLine that relative newcomer Jonathan Whitesell and Hannibal‘s Kacey Rohl have been cast as Hercules and Meg, to appear in the 13th episode of Season 5, titled “Labor of Love.”
The castings come on the heels of TVLine reporting that Ally McBeal‘s Greg Germann will recur this spring as “The Distinguished Gentleman,” which some have speculated is code for Hades.

Additionally, TVLine has learned bailee-madisonthat Bailee Madison (The Good Witch, Trophy Wife) will reprise her role as Young Snow White in the same episode (the second to air after the long winter break). Madison last appeared on Once in March 2013.

As previously revealed in my Inside Line column, Hercules is described as “a dashing, strapping young man” who is “single-minded in his pursuit of his destiny: to be the greatest hero who ever lived. All that changes however, when he falls in love with a beautiful princess.” Sigh. I’ve been there!
Meg, meanwhile, is “a plucky young adventurer with a sly sense of humor and a tough, no-nonsense spirit. And though she has spent a long time languishing in a dungeon, her inner spark has not burned out. Rather, it is waiting for the right opportunity to shine brightly again.”
Whitesell and Rohl are currently set for just the one episode.
Whitesell’s previous TV credits include episodes of The 100, iZombie and Fox’s upcoming X-Files revival. In addition to her Hannibal run, Rohl has appeared on Fringe, Supernatural and The Killing.

Chicago Fire alum Teri Reeves is set to heat things up in Once Upon a Time‘s Oz.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Reeves has landed the recurring role of Kansas native Dorothy Gale, who since the last time we saw her has grown up to be a “brave warrior for good.”

Having returned home to the Heartland at the end of Season 3’s Zelena-centric “Kansas” episode (and then played by Matreya Scarrwener), Dorothy returns to Oz to save the magical city from the most wicked of witches. But to do so, she will have to forge new friendships, unlocking a strength she has never had before.

In addition to her Season 1 Chicago Fire run (as Casey’s ill-fated fiancée), Reeves’ TV credits include episodes of Castle, Scandal, NCIS and Three Rivers.

ABC’s Once Upon a Time resumes Season 5 on March 6 with Episode 12; Reeves debuts in Episode 16.

Greg Germann aka DG is in fact playing Hades


Over the course of five seasons on Once Upon a Time, the residents of Storybrooke have been plagued by wicked witches, icy queens, and even a murderous Peter Pan — But Emma (Jennifer Morrison) & Co. will face their toughest opponent yet when they arrive in the Underworld.

EW can exclusively reveal what many have speculated: Ally McBeal alum Greg Germann will indeed be playing Hades, the devilish dictator of the Underworld.


“We’re going to be meeting the Once Upon a Time version of Hades in the second half of the season,” executive producer Adam Horowitz tells EW. “While he is both inspired by a myth and by the Disney movie version, as we like to do, we’re trying to create our own Once Upon a Time spin. We can’t wait for everyone to see what [Germann] does with the character.”

Germann is slated to make his debut “right away” in the midseason premiere, which also marks the ABC fairy tale drama’s landmark 100th episode, in which Emma, her friends and family try to rescue Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) from the Underworld. “He absolutely has a surprising connection to one of our cast,” executive producer Edward Kitsis says, though Horowitz is quick to add: “Before everyone runs to Twitter to give their opinions on it, he’s not related to anyone, but there is a connection.”

a new Gaston

“Once Upon A Time” has found Belle’s dangerous suitor, Gaston.

The chiseled hunter will be played by “True Blood” alum Wes Brown who’s been cast in an upcoming episode, Variety has learned exclusively.

Gaston’s storyline will take viewers back to Belle’s (Emilie de Ravin) time before she met Rumple (Robert Carlyle), furthering the exploration of “Once Upon A Time’s” twist on Gaston’s role in the “Beauty & the Beast” tale.

Previously, the role “Sir Gaston” was played by actor Sage Brocklebank, who appeared in one episode in “Once’s” first season.

The episode in which Brown’s Gaston will appear has not been set yet, though it will be during the back-half of the fifth season, which returns on Sunday, Mar. 6.

Aside from “True Blood,” Brown’s other TV credits include the CW’s “90210,” “Hart of Dixie,” “Private Practice” and NBC’s short-lived drama “Deception,” in which he was a series regular.
