While we may still have five episodes to go on “Once Upon a Time” (including Sunday night’s new installment) prior to the finale, it’s never too early to start speculating on what is going to be coming up, right? We know already that the last two episodes of the year are going to carry with them a rather distinct “Peter Pan” vibe, and the latest casting scoop suggests that we could be meeting someone soon who is very involved in that world.
According to a new report from SpoilerTV, producers for the ABC series are currently looking for someone to play the role of Felix, who is the leader of a few teenage boys. Is he the leader of the Lost Boys … or possibly even Pam himself? With Captain Hook already on board the show, you know that this is a character that will inevitably show up at some point, even if it does not sound like it will be at any point in the immediate future. Executive producers Adam Horowtiz and Edward Kitsis said at PaleyFest that we would not meet Peter Pan until season 3, so we have to think that this will be a casting for over the summer.
Are there still some conspiracy theories out there that Neal Cassady / Baelfire is actually a more grown-up version of the character? Definitely, but we see this being a longshot given that he already has connections to just about everything fairytale-related under the sun. It would be a bit more interesting for his story if he was just a lost boy himself who decided to leave.
What do you think about this potential role, and if it does turn out to be Pan, who do you want to see in the part? If you want to watch some sneak peeks for Sunday night’s flashback to the early days of Storybrooke, you can do so over at the link here.
