August Booth may have turned back into a little boy on Once Upon a Time Season 2, Episode 18: “Selfless, Brave, and True," but at least fans will have a chance to catch Eion Bailey on the small screen again soon, when he heads over to Law & Order: SVU for a guest role.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Eion will play an Iraq war vet on SVU. His character, Frank Patterson, has PTSD, and is "a key witness in an investigation of a sexual assault in a nightclub. "

Sounds a bit different than August!

You can catch Eion in the role this April — he'll be on Season 14, Episode 21. The show airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.

You may recall that Eion was cast in the pilot for TNT's Trooper earlier this year. Unfortunately, TNT passed on that show. Hopefully this SVU role is a sign of things to come for Eion, because we don't like the idea of having him off our TV screens for too long.

Are you already missing August? Us too. Share your feelings about his fate here.

Catch the next episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, April 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
