The Originals alum Nathan Parsons has joined the cast of Once Upon a Time in a recurring capacity, EW has learned.

Parsons will play Nick, a confident and charismatic slacker-turned-successful-lawyer. He’s polished, but not stuffy or smarmy. A natural guy’s guy, Nick has an instant likability and always says the right thing. Rumor has it he’ll be playing a potential love interest for one of our cast.

The actor, whose credits also include True Blood and General Hospital, will first appear in episode 708, which is slated to air Nov. 17.

The news comes on the heels of OUAT casting Tiera Skovbye as Robin, the grown-up daughter of Zelena (Rebecca Mader) and Robin Hood (Sean Maguire), who will also be a love interest.

Once Upon a Time airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
