  • He did voice work for the character “Edgar” central alien character in the PlayStation 2 game Area 51 and I have to say he was pretty badass. I have no doubt he will be just as awesome in this role. Though I am even more curious now as to how or why the shadow will be speaking… the plot thickens!

  • As odd of a choice as this is, and with the way Neverland is turning out to be, I believe this is excellent casting. Good job.

  • Wait- the shadow can talk? It couldn’t tell the difference between a child and a fully-grown man, how is it sentient?

    • They didn’t claim the shadow was smart…

  • I hope they explain what the Shadow is. Is it its own entity or is it Peter’s actual shadow who does Peter’s bidding?

    • Maybe its enslaved by Pan. They defeat Pan by getting him eaten by his own shadow.
