Lost‘s Hurley will guest-star during Season 2 of ABC’s fantastical series as a giant, TVLine has learned. Garcia right now is booked for just one episode.
Garcia’s casting comes as no great surprise, given Once co-creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz’s own Lost roots. Plus, as recently as July they shared their wish to find a place for the big lug on their canvas, just as they did with Emilie de Ravin (who played castaway Claire back in the day and now is a series regular as Belle).
Think maybe Garcia’s giant lords over a certain magical beanstalk? Whatever the case, he joins a colorful list of new characters set to pop up this season, including Captain Hook, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Sir Lancelot and … whomever Michael Raymond-James is playing.
Once, which was last season’s highest-rated freshman drama, opens its new season on Sunday, Sept. 30.
