Once Upon a Time Casts Mad Man Patrick Fischler in Key Recurring Role

Once Upon a Time Patrick Fischler

Once Upon a Time is enlisting an ad man for its next arc.

Patrick Fischler (Mad Men) will recur on Season 4 of the ABC drama as a peddler, TVLine has learned.

Fischler’s character comes across as well-intentioned but is actually a quick-witted, arrogant man with reckless impulses. He will appear in both the fairytale land and Storybrooke.

Fischler will also recur on Season 2 of HBO’s Silicon Valley as Professor Bannercheck, a very serious academic glowing with self-satisfaction who has relocated himself and family to help the guys at Hooli.

Once Upon a Time resumes Season 4 with Episode 13 on Sunday, March 1, at 8/7c.

Once fans, what are you theories on the significance of Fischler’s role?

    I hate that guy.

  2. StephonJS says:

    Episode 12

    • Jess says:

      Episode 13. Episodes 8 and 9 are still considered two episodes.

      • nicolas from Poland says:

        Maybe on your planet, but A. Horowitz considered episode 4×08 as one, 2-hour episode. Later some MORON from ABC wanted to be “smarter” and split it up.

        • Reality says:

          ABC announced the initial 22 episode order would be raised to 23 back in October 2014. They consider it two separate episodes and I’m going to side with the company that owns, produces, and distributes it.

  3. Tran says:

    Wasn’t he the same actor who was on LOST at the time?

  4. Vari says:

    Judging by twitter – he’s filmed with Regina, Hook and Smee it seems

  5. Joe says:

    Maybe he’s The Author/Sorceror.

    • Alex Neeley says:

      Yeah, that’s my theory too.

    • Goblin says:

      He can’t be the Socerer.

      • Sara Mikos says:

        They said that he’d be playing a peddler and if a man had magic, then he wouldn’t need to go from town to town selling small items. I also think that the author is either a character that we’ve already seen on the show, or is a majorly popular book character. I’m also guessing that the show runners want to make the sorcerer/author reveal a big one and it’ll happen during the finale.

    • Josh says:

      I think they’d go for a bigger name in the genre for the Author.

    Once Upon a Time resumes Season 4 with Episode TWELFTH on Sunday, March 1, at 8/7c.

  7. Yeahman says:

    Isn’t that the goat-man from Grimm?

  8. Tran says:
