Once Upon a Time: New TV Spot and Character Posters; Alan Dale Joins the Cast

As we have reported over the past months, ABC’s Once Upon a Time was co-created by Lost writing alums Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis. We also reported that the two credit Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof with being the new show’s “godfather”. Now the show has added Alan Dale, who played the powerful and questionably evil Charles Widmore on Lost, as another powerful man. This time he’ll be the father of Prince Charming.

Adam Horowitz told TV Line, “It’s a really pivotal role, and a pivotal part of the Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) story that we don’t think has been told yet,” adding that Dale is booked for one episode “but we’re leaving the door open for a larger tale to potentially tell with him.”

Alan Dale won’t be the only Lostian thing to be looking for in the series; in the pilot alone we’ll be seeing a clock stuck at 8:15 and a Geronimo Jackson bumper sticker. Namaste, my friends.

Here’s the latest TV spot from ABC about the upcoming show:


And here are some gorgeous posters of the characters:

Once Upon a Time premieres on Sunday, October 23 at 8/7c. on ABC.
