True Blood’s Michael Raymond-James Lands Role in Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time: Casts Michael Raymond-James in season 2

According to TVLine’s Megan Masters and Matt Webb Mitovich, Michael Raymond-James has been cast in a recurring guest-star role for season 2 of Once Upon a Time. The details of who Michael will be playing are being kept top secret. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The secrecy surrounding Raymond-James’ role — which differs greatly from the several other castings reported on this summer (see Hook, Sir Lancelot, Sleeping Beauty and Mulan) — can only get us theorizing that he could be playing Baelfire. Rumpelstiltskin’s long-lost son last was seen getting pulled away from the fairytale-land-that-was through a portal to, presumably, our world. In fact, late last season we and Mr. Gold were led to believe that the mysterious August Booth was Baelfire, when in actuality he turned out to be Pinocchio.

My thoughts: As I discussed in my post about the casting of the role of Captain Hook (The Random Thoughts of a Writer: Once Upon a Time: Casts Colin O’Donoghue as Captain Hook) I personally think that the writers seriously need to stop adding more recurring guest-star roles on top of their already large cast and just focus on the characters that they already have on the show for a while before they introduce more characters. That being said, it will be interesting to see who Michael Raymond-James will be playing. I think it would be really cool if he ends up playing Rumpelstiltskin’s son, Baelfire, as an adult.
