As for "Once Upon a Time", it has tapped "The Lovely Bones" star Rose McIver to play Tinkerbell as the show ventures into Neverland in season 3. There's still no word on who will play the famous Peter Pan, but it has been promised that he will be a darker and complicated version of the character. Ariel, The Little Mermaid, will also be part of the Neverland storyline.

In another casting tidbit, "NYPD Blue" and "Caprica" star Esai Morales has joined "Criminal Minds" as Matt Cruz, the new BAU section chief.
