Once Upon a Time Star Michael Raymond-James’s Exciting New Gig!
The Once Upon a Time actors are a busy bunch. Star Michael Raymond-James (Neal/Bae) only finished filmingSeason 2 two weeks ago, and he's already getting ready to pack his bags and fly off to his next big gig.
"Excited to announce I'm headed to South Africa soon to play Jeffrey Dean Morgan's brother in a cowboy movie," Michael tweeted yesterday (April 10), adding the hashtags #TheSalvation and #CowboyUp.
We don't know much else about this project, but even that one tweet has us excited. Obviously we love Michael. We've also been big fans of Jeffrey Dean Morgan since he was Denny Duquette on Grey's Anatomy, and he's had a string of other excellent roles since then, from John Winchester on Supernatural, to The Comedian in Watchmen, to Ike Evans on Magic City. We can definitely see these two actors playing brothers, and we bet they'll make excellent cowboys.
Oh, and for you Neal fans out there, don't worry: In case you don't know, it's very common for TV actors to work on movies between seasons. In fact, the fact that Michael is working on a movie and wasn't booked for any new pilots this year suggests OUAT definitely plans to keep him around. (At least, we hope so!)
Are you excited about this movie? Sound off in the comments below.
Catch the next episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, April 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
