Though there aren’t many voice-only roles on Once Upon a Time, its spin-off Once Upon a Time in Wonderland has quite a few. In addition to John Lithgow as The White Rabbit, a familiar voice is playing the Cheshire Cat!
According to TVLine, Keith David — who recently narrated The Bible, the “Pillows and Blankets” episode of Community, Saints Row video games, and more — will magically appear in the premiere and recur throughout the new series.
Additionally, the site reports that The Who’s Roger Daltrey will reprise his OUAT role as the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, who will also recur in Wonderland.
Keith’s role rounds out the growing cast, which includes Sophie Lowe as Alice, Emma Rigby as The Red Queen, Peter Gadiot as Cyrus, Michael Socha as the Knave of Hearts, and Naveen Andrews as Jafar!
We can’t wait to see what words of wisdom (and general freaky moments) the Cheshire Cat will provide. Are you excited to hear Keith as the purple feline? Sound off below!
Catch the Once Upon a Time in Wonderland premiere on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
