As first reported by our sister site Variety, Brown will guest-star sometime during the back half of Season 5, in an episode that explores Belle’s life before Rumplestiltskin figured into it.
Gaston was previously played by Sage Brocklebank (Psych) in the RumBelle-centric Season 1 episode “Skin Deep.”
In addition to his True Blood run, Brown’s TV credits include Deception, 90210, Hart of Dixie and Private Practice. Fun fact: He was also OPA’s first client in the Scandal pilot.
Once resumes Season 5, with a trip to Hades, on Sunday, March 6.
