I'd wondered about that, but I hope not since "HER" does not seem like it will be a nice/good character - just a feeling HER could be another bad guy/girl. And while I fully expect Alice to show up at some point, I think/hope they might wait to tie her into the Hatter's return after whenever Sebastian Stan finishes his current run on Broadway.

Then again if Bae turns out to be the White Rabbit as I kind of hope, maybe Alice will arrive sooner rather than later to Storybrooke.

I don't think they'd have blatantly shown us the screen of his phone several times with the name HER if it didn't have some significance. Why not just name the contact REBECCAH if there's nothing to hide. Could be nothing, but I don't think so.

He's also got at least the Captain America sequel to film, so it'll probably be quite some time before he's free. And depending on how that one ends he could do more Marvel movies.
EDIT: Then again Emily Van Camp is the lead on Revenge, so I guess doing the movie might not have much effect on his availability for OUAT.
EDIT 2: According to TVLine, they are considering and Mad Hatter spin-off, and they are also looking into recasting the part.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Nobody reflected over what Jack said in "Tiny" about who she got the magical mushrooms from?

For a moment there I thought they would reveal she actually was Alice... until she spoke her name.

The show doesn't need a spinoff, it's such a stupid idea!

Spinoff with the Madhatter? not a bad idea. Recasting? terrible idea.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I generally hate recasting, but there are certain situations where it's warranted, and this is one of those situations. The Producers clearly want to use the character of Jefferson more, but Sebastian Stan's busy schedule prevents them from doing so.

As to whether a spinoff of OUaT focused on Jefferson would or would not work, we as fans really can't make that call.

Yeah, I was getting more to the idea that Sebastion Stan is probably the major reason the character is so popular. Good luck finding someone to replace him.

Andrew Lee-Potts from SyFy's miniseries 'Alice' would make an excellent replacement for Stan, as both have similar physical characteristics and similar vocal quality.

As for Stan's portrayal being the reason for the character's popularity with fans, that may very well be the case, but the producers are likely well aware of that and yet are still willing to consider recasting the role, which says something about their own internal desire to use the character.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

The reaction to the idea of recasting the role of the Hatter has been pretty strongly negative as far as I've seen. I really hope that's taken into consideration before any final decisions are made. I'd much rather see Jefferson's storyline put on the back burner until Sebastian Stan is available to be back as recurring, than throw energy away recasting and spinning off with someone else.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I love Stan as the Hatter. Personally I would rather they work around Stan's schedule. He is not averse to doing television. He is just busy.

Sometimes recasts work fine. But, with the Hatter I think it is Stan that sells the character.

Of course you can never tell if it will be bad in advance, but I don't think it is a great idea sans Stan.

I'm not a big fan of recasting-- more often than not, something essential is lost. I do agree, though, that the guy from Alice would be a good candidate if they did recast.

Hmmm...I haven't seen Alice, but, I can't imagine any way Andrew Lee Potts (Connor from Primeval) could possibly replace Sebastian Stan, Andrew Lee Potts is quite skinny, Sebastian Stan probably weighs at least half much more as Andrew Lee potts.

Yep, the weight of the actor is the most important thing here.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I'm another one who would rather see them just work around Stan's avaiability rather than recast. The show has been working fine without him, and I don't think it would be that bad if we just got one or two episodes with him every season or so.
