Lost’s Naveen Andrews Is Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’s Jafar

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, an upcoming spinoff closely related to ABC's similarly titled series, has cast Lost's Naveen "Sayid Jarrah" Andrews as Jafar, "the genie villain." The show will bow Oct. 10, a couple weeks after Once Upon a Time's third season kicks off. Wonderland will revolve around Alice, who starts out being treated in a Victorian asylum. John Lithgow is voicing the White Rabbit. Maybe we'll get to see Andrews in huge, universe-destroying Jafar mode.
