Paul Reubens, Emma Rigby in Spinoff

Pee-wee Jumps into Wonderland

Paul Reubens

Paul Reubens, undoubtely best known to audiences as Pee-wee Herman from the kid's show of the 1980s, joins the spinoff "Once: Wonderland" cast in the role of the White Rabbit.

Ralph Hemecker, who has done quite a number of "Once Upon a Time" episodes, will direct the spinoff pilot. The White Rabbit will be computer-generated, so Reubens himself won't actually appear on screen (at least very often).

Emma Rigby also has been cast to appear in the spinoff as the Red Queen. Her casting continues the decidedly non-US makeup of the cast, with all three leads foreign-born. She is known in England for appearing in a string of television series there, most notably in "Hollyoaks" as Hannah Ashworth. Her casting should not be taken as proof that Barbara Hershey will not appear - rumor is that she indeed will appear, in flashbacks. The spinoff pilot films in Vancouver this week, immediately after the wrap of the regular season filming there of "Once Upon a Time."
