Roger Daltrey to play Talking Caterpillar on Once Upon a Time!
A talking caterpillar is coming to the show…
The talking caterpillar is going to be just one part of an Alice in Wonderland-themed episode. The title is “Hat Trick.” (You got that right? The Mad Hatter, of course… )
The talking caterpillar will be played by the Who’s rock legend Roger Daltrey in voice over. Once Upon executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz say the Who’s 1975 rock opera Tommy was “a huge inspiration for the show.”

Sebastian Stan rumored to play Jefferson/Mad Hatter?
Hey guys, so you remember how I posted that Sebasian Stan was going to play Jefferson/Mad hatter earlier, right? The reblogs and likes took off like wildfire. Unfortunately, I had written the post in haste in order to get to somewhere I needed to be and didn’t check my sources like I should have. So, in order to stop rumors passing, I deleted the original post. I’d like to clarify:
I read that Sebastian Stan was going to play Jefferson/Mad Hatter somewhere. I forgot to write down the source, can you believe that? Now that I reflect back on it, I don’t think the source was a very trustworthy one. From further checking, it looks like the role has not been confirmed yet. So, as of now, Sebastian Stan cast as Jefferson/Mad Hatter is a rumor. I apologize very much for this confusion. Please forgive me?
In all honesty though, from the casting call’s description, I think Sebastian Stan fits perfectly. What do you think? Hopefully this rumor will turn out to be true!
Here’s the casting call:
Casting notice: [JEFFERSON] Late 20s to Mid 30s, a rakishly handsome, former criminal who in Fairy Tale Land has given up his life of crime and dedicated himself to his daughter, while in Storybrooke he is a dangerous and mysterious figure who knows about the curse and attempts to convince Emma that it is real. Guest star. Any ethnicity.
Confirmed: Sebastian Stan to play Mad Hatter!
So, you guys remember how I posted awhile back that Sebastian Stan was rumored to play the Mad Hatter in an upcoming episode? Looks like that rumor has turned out to be confirmed as truth!
Check out the spoiler from Kitsis and Horowitz themselves:
In Episode 17, Sebastian Stan will play the Mad Hatter, and we’ll see how the Mad Hatter became mad. The caterpillar will be played by Roger Daltrey of The Who. “We kind of do our Once twist on it,” Adam says.
So, who is looking forward to this episode? I know I am for sure!
Hat Trick: Once Upon a Time’s take on Wonderland…
Here are some few extra spoils on the changes we will see in Once Upon a Time’s take on the ever famous Alice In Wonderland…
"The first difference you’ll notice is who the Mad Hatter was and his backstory. Then what Wonderland is and the changes of it is something we hope to explore also. We’re hoping this tells you the story of the Mad Hatter, but also will leave you with questions about Wonderland."
Okay, so who is excited for this episode? I know I am! I am anticipating a new favorite episode out of this one, actually…
