Garcia will play the Giant in one episode of the ABC fairy-tale drama's upcoming second season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. With plans for a Jack and the Beanstalk episode, it can be speculated that Garcia will appear in that hour.

The casting marks a reunion for all involved: Once Upon a Time showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis served as producers on Lost, on which Garcia played Hurley.
