    Wow… about the last person i would have thought they would pick. But i think he will do a great job . I saw his band twice in concert and they were awesome.

    Friggen awesome!! I love OUAT and I love him. What a great idea

    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!

    Super excited about this! Should be awesome.

  6. Lorena says:

    That is just freaking wonderful!!!

    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.

    Scary! Marilyn Manson is evil!

  9. AMCPress says:

    I’m excited about this! He is perfect for the role. From a marketing prospective this is one way for Once Upon a Time to increase their fanbase.

  10. Pat says:

    He will fit right in. One word to describe him—-” CREEPY” !

  11. Alice says:

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

  12. Mikael says:

    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?
