It looks like former X-Files star Nicholas Lea is doing double-duty in his home town of Vancouver. He'll be appearing in two Vancouver-based shows: Supernatural and Once Upon a Time.
The rumor has been floating around that Lea would be making a guest appearance on Supernatural, which was recently confirmed by one of the show's producers, Jim Michaels. He tweeted: "Yes, I can confirm the other reports that he is in fact guest starring in Supernatural". Other known guest stars for the show include Road Trip & Memphis Beat's DJ Qualls, who is appearing in this week's episode. We will be seeing Lea in an early 2012 episode. Supernatural's midseason finale airs in early December and then the show returns with new episodes on Friday, January 6.
Lea will also be appearing in the new ABC series, Once Upon a Time, which was recently picked up for a full season by the network. ABC has confirmed that he'll be playing Hansel and Gretel's father in an upcoming episode. Other upcoming guest stars on Once Upon a Time include LOST's Alan Dale, who will be appearing as King George in episode 6, and LOST's Emilie de Ravin, who will be appearing as Belle.
Lea played recurring character Alex Krycek on The X-Files for many years and also had long-running roles in shows like Once A Thief, Men in Trees and Kyle XY.
