Once Upon a Time is overflowing with guest stars, but a new addition for Episode 17 sounds especially intriguing.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Benjamin Stockham, who's currently a regular on NBC comedy 1600 Penn, will be stopping by OUAT for Episode 17 to play Owen, a "precocious, strong-willed kid who isn't afraid to speak his mind."

However, like most characters on OUAT, Owen has a dark backstory, and "his free-spirited, lively personality" hides that "he's secretly dealing with the tragic death of his mother."

Hmmm ... sounds like a character that will mostly feature in a flashback, though it would be interesting to see a young boy in Storybrooke. Maybe he and Henry (Jared Gilmore) could be friends...

Catch the next episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
