Once Upon A Time upped recurring castmembers Rebecca Mader and Sean Maguire to series regulars beginning in the upcoming fifth season. Both have recurred since Season 3. Maguire joined the series after replacing Tom Ellis, who briefly appeared as Robin Hood.
Meanwhile on Netflix, Daredevil is adding The Punisher to Season 2, and they’ve asked Jon Bernthal to come on board for some punishment. Bernthal is a rising talent in Hollywood, so it’s no surprise that he’d get such a fanboy favorite role. He’s well known among the comic con crowd already for his role as Shane on The Walking Dead, and is also currently a character in the Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare exo-zombies mode. He’s got acting cred too, having appeared in The Wolf Of Wall Street, Fury, and this weekends new release Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl. He’ll be seen later this summer in We Are Your Friends.
This is big news for the character of The Punisher, who was recently reacquired by Marvel (along with Blade and Ghost Rider). Could this lead to The Punisher having his own Netflix series, or Netflix movie? Is Jon Bernthal about to finally hit it big?
