An actor best known for his role on the hit ABC drama “Lost” will find himself back on the nework soon, reports TVLine.com.
Alan Dale, who played Charles Widmore on “Lost,” will appear in the network’s new fantasy series, “Once Upon a Time.” Dale will again be playing a father, this time to Josh Dallas, who plays the young Prince Charming.
Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, two "Lost" producers, are heading up the new series. Horowitz talked about Dale’s role, saying: "It’s a really pivotal role, and a pivotal part of the Snow White and Prince Charming story that we don’t think has been told yet."
Dale is slated for one episode, Horowitz said, "But we’re leaving the door open for a larger tale to potentially tell with him.”
Other “Lost” alumni are likely to also show up in the series, the story says.
The report adds: “The pilot alone contains numerous references to the late ABC drama, including a clock stuck at 8:15 and a Geronimo Jackson bumper sticker. It also boasts ‘Lost’ co-creator Damon Lindelof as a consultant.”
Earlier this month, Kitsis said of Lindelof: “His name is not on the show, but he is in the DNA of it.”
