We'd already heard rumblings that Lost alum Jorge Garcia would be joining ABC's hit fairytale drama Once Upon a Time this season, and now we know who he'll be playing. Turns out it's a very big role.

TV Line is reporting that Garcia, who became a fan favorite as Hurley on Lost, will be (literally) playing a giant when the new season debuts Sept. 30. No word on exactly which giant he'll be playing, but considering the show's storybook roots, there very well could be a beanstalk involved.

The series is looking to beef up its fairytale cred this season, and Garcia's giant will be joined by Captain Hook, Mulan, Sir Lancelot and Sleeping Beauty in the cute little town with a whole lot of secrets.

Garcia is only locked in for one episode, but considering that Once Upon a Time creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis cut their teeth working on Lost, it's certainly possible they could bring him back again.

What do you think about the casting decision? Is Garcia a good fit for a giant?
