I suppose if it wasn’t a story they planned to tell yet, but were keeping in reserve for some later, unknown date, it wouldn’t necessarily be listed as a recurring role.[adrotate group="5"]August 20, 2013 at 12:24 pm #205883
Many fans have said that Tom Welling would make a good Eric. Don’t think anyone actually involved with the show has said anything about it though.August 20, 2013 at 1:04 pm #205890
It will certainly be interesting to see who gets cast as “Liam”, and if they reveal a different name for the character when the actor is announced.August 20, 2013 at 1:07 pm #205892SlurpeezParticipant
It would be so funny if Liam, Irish variant of William, turned out to be Will Turner from POTC! I’d love to see Orlando Bloom grace us with his presence. I know it’ll probably never happen, but one can hope.
On another note, I really like the idea that the apple key stands for a frame job. For example, maybe this Liam guy is a fugitive, as Hook told Bae his father was, who allowed Hook to take the fall for some crime. Hook became hardened and so chose piratry as a career of sorts.

Personally, I really hate the idea of Eric being Hook’s father because I think it makes Ariel his mother and well…yeah. Joanna isn’t THAT old. In fact she’s the same age as Colin. And they’ve already done the whole parent/child same age thing with our main family, Snow/Charming and Emma.
Liam is probably a code name but I would go with Davy instead of Eric."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"August 20, 2013 at 1:57 pm #205903kfchimeraParticipant
I don’t consider it a casting rumor until some of the crew/cast/writers say it or we see twitters or something showing they’ve talked to the person. Otherwise, it is just a fan wish. Like, let me start a fan wish right now that they get David Tennant (Dr. who) or Henry Ian Cusik (Desmond from Lost) to play some relative of Rumpel’s because they are Scottish. If that gets turned into a rumor that reaches the producers ears and inspires something, it is worth it :P.
In any case, the dark hair might be needed if the storyline is “frame job” since part of that might be that the two looked alike and were the same age. So this “Liam” frames Hook for something, and Hook has to take up with pirates to survive?
As I said, I’m not a fan of Hook being yet another orphan/abandoned kid. I’d rather his issues stemmed from being sort of privileged and spoiled (like the original Captain Hook went to an upper class boarding school) but then forced to survive by his wits. Maybe Liam, the orphan, is the one who frames a more innocent, entitled Hook who never sees it coming. That starts off Hook’s resentment towards those he considers beneath him (the way he acts when bumping into what he thinks is just a beggar, his arrogance about Hopper’s looks or Rumpel’s height). It fits with his insistence on being a gentleman and having a code, the formality of getting his respect as the captain and his attitude toward the various royalty he meets (that he acts like he is equal to Regina, Snow and Cora, not much deference like Johanna the maid in his manner.)
But it will probably be his dad, played by Tom Welling, who will be Eric and we’ll be sobbing for Hook, just like we did for Regina and Rumple.

I didn’t think Tom Welling was even a rumor, just a fan wish.
I would be fine with Hook being a spoiled little brat who then had to learn the ways of the world OR I would be fine with him being an orphan who was adopted by a pirate."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
