Once Upon A Time S2 casting news

Meet Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s father

TVLine has confirmed that Gregory Itzin – a two-time Emmy nominee for his run as 24 POTUS Charles Logan, and currently a recurring player on Covert Affairs — will appear on the ABC drama as Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s father, Alphonse.

Dr. Frankenstein is played on Once by David Anders, whose Storybrooke alter ego, Dr. Whale, is a standard-issue physician.

Itzin will appear in Episode 12, which also guest-stars Chad Michael Collins as Victor’s brother Gerhardt.

Once Upon a Time, now on holiday hiatus, resumes its run Jan. 6 with Episode 10, “The Cricket Game.”
