Michael Socha will be joining the "Once Upon a Time" cast as a series regular. On April 1, The Hollywood Reporter stated that Socha will move from the canceled "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" to the original show. This is likely because of his popularity. "OUAT" is set to be renewed for a fourth season which is when fans will see Socha join the cast.
"The news comes two days after 'Once' said goodbye to series regular Michael Raymond-James, whose character Neal was killed off after a two-season run" (The Hollywood Reporter). Fans of the show have been heartbroken over Neal and it doesn't sound like he will be coming back to life by way of some incredible magic spell (cue ugly cry face).
Michael Socha played Will Scarlet/Knave of Hearts in "Wonderland." It is presumed that his character will be introduced as such in season four of "OUAT" and this would mean a new storyline of twists that would weave Socha in seamlessly -- something the show does effortlessly. It's hard to say exactly how Socha will fit in but many fans are thrilled to see that he will be joining their other cast favorites.
