Report: ONCE UPON A TIME Looking to Recast the Mad Hatter, Potentially Spin Him Off
February 22, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
The ONCE UPON A TIME universe may be expanding — Deadline reports that ABC is looking to spin off the Mad Hatter to his own series.
The only catch?
According to Deadline, Sebastian Stan (who has played the dual role of Jefferson/Mad Hatter since the first season) isn’t available to commit to the multi-year contract a spinoff would require, so the network is looking to recast the role before Jefferson/Mad Hatter returns later in the season. If the story and new actor gel, ABC might consider spinning the character off to his own series.
ABC had no comment about the rumors.
