Everybody needs a little more Whoopi in their lives and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland fans are going to get some and soon! The famous entertainer has been cast to join the OUAT spin-off, according to a TVLine report.
Who could Ms. Goldberg be playing? Honestly, we’ve already encountered so many unexpected characters on the show any guess seems likely. This time, however, we actually know which fairy tale character Whoopi will star as. Here’s a clue: She’ll have to deal with some rather neurotic tendencies. Oh and she’s probably partial to carrots.
That’s right. Whoopi’s the wife of the timekeeping, slightly crazed White Rabbit. Obviously she won’t be physically hopping around set dressed in a giant white bunny suit (as great as that would be). Rather, Whoopi will lend her voice to the character starting in Wonderland’s eighth episode; Mrs. White Rabbit will appear in both the current story and in a flashback to her bushy-tailed hubby’s past, says TVLine.
Whoopi’s got plenty of experience voicing animated characters including in The Lion King as the hyena Shenzi and in beloved 1990s cartoon Captain Planet and the Planeteers as Gaia. We can’t wait to hear Whoopi use her pipes again in this latest role!
