Alan Dale Alan Dale

Lost actor Alan Dale is headed to TV Land's Hot in Cleveland to romance one of the ladies.

In a pair of episodes set to air in December, the former Charles Widmore, who also recurs as King George on ABC's Once Upon A Time, will play a man named Emmett who has an eye for Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick).

Emmett is an Oscar-winning actor cast in his first Woody Allen movie, which just so happens to be filming in Cleveland. When Victoria also lands a role in the project, the two spar before developing a flirtation that leads to romance. And I'm hearing this may become much more than an on-set fling.

No word yet if Woody Allen will make a cameo, but I think we can pretty much rule that out!
