Once Upon A Time has been buy casting for season 3 and their new world, Neverland. OUaT has decided to go ahead with the character of Rufio, made famous in Robin William's version of Pan; here are the spoilery details thus far ;)
“The character, per lore, is described as forever youthful, mischievous and harboring a penchant for clever games — but behind his playful façade lurks a petulant child twisted enough to destroy anyone who crosses his path.”
Show producers Kitsis and Horowitz are also casting Violet, or ummm...Tinkerbell?
Vi is a mischievous twentysomething whose penchant for troublemaking belies the heart of a true survivor. (Interesting side note, especially for Hook if she is Tinkerbell: She never lets a slight go unpunished!)
In addition, a familiar do-gooder will resurface in season 3, but his character will be re-cast, so the search is on for the new Robin Hood.
Tom Ellis (Merlin) isn’t available for a recurring run as Robin Hood. Who’s your pick to “rob” Ellis of his role? Anyone know what Matt Smith’s up to these days?
