Keck's Exclusives First Look: Jorge Garcia's Giant Once Upon a Time Role
Fee-fi-fo-fum. On Nov. 4, ABC's Once Upon a Time gets another visit from a Lost alum, and this one's a biggie. Or, more specifically, "a Giant, like six times a normal person," says Jorge Garcia.
Though Jack the beanstalk boy is not involved in this take on the fairy-tale classic, expect the big man to interact with Emma and Captain Hook. Just like the characters in the classic Disney cartoon "Mickey and the Beanstalk," Emma and Hook go on a mission to find something in the Giant's lair. But it's not a golden singing harp like in the cartoon.
"It's something else," teases Garcia, who will also play a drug dealer on Showtime's Californication next year. The Giant will be far from mellow. "He's a dangerous, angry guy," says Garcia, whose favorite part of the role was dressing up in the Giant's rags. It was "the coolest, most extravagant costume I've ever worn," he says. "There's definitely an Eastern influence to it, with a corset-style belt and a lot of bangle things that jingled when I walked." Dude!
