I’m okay with Colin in the role, but I get what others are saying about an older, more seasoned actor. Jason Isaacs played my favorite portrayal of Hook for reference. He brought a terrific sense of menace and sexiness to the role despite being in a children’s movie. He has a very powerful presence onscreen. An actor of his caliber and presence playing against Robert Carlyle could have been electrifying. Colin’s very attractive, and I like him, but he does get lost against the other villians. Compared to the strong presences of Cora, Rumple, and Regina, he’s kinda like the Diet Coke of evil. Just one calorie… not quite evil enough. Still I’m going to give him more time and just see where they take this incarnation of Hook.
