'Once Upon a Time' Finds 'Frozen's' Prince Hans
Once Upon a Time has found Frozen's Prince Hans.
Shameless actor Tyler Jacob Moore has been cast in the season-four recurring role on ABC's fairy-tale drama, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. He will first appear in the third episode.
In the 2013 Oscar-winning Disney blockbuster, Prince Hans — Anna's former love — is the main antagonist, concocting a scheme to earn the throne of another kingdom through marriage. He is first portrayed as honest and noble, but eventually his true colors come out.
The news comes less than an hour after Lord of the Rings' John Rhys-Davies was added as Pabbie the Troll King and two days after ABC's fairy-tale drama debuted the first footage of Frozen sisters Anna (Elizabeth Lail) and Elsa (Georgina Haig), following the events of the movie, at Comic-Con. Other Frozen characters making their debut include Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster) and Elizabeth Mitchell, also playing an unknown related role, though Olaf will reportedly not appear.

Executive producer Adam Horowitz told THR in May that they were "honored" to incorporate the Frozen universe into Once. "We fell in love with [the movie] when it came out last year like everyone did, and we want to do our best to do it justice," he said at the time.
E! Online first reported the news.
Moore, whose credits include GCB and Revenge, is repped by BRS/Gage and McKeone-Myones Management.
