The actor, who played Robin Hood on Once Upon a Time, will appear as Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels, on NBC’s upcoming time-travel drama Timeless, EW has learned exclusively. In the fourth episode, titled “Party at Castle Varlar,” the heroic trio led by historian Lucy (Abigail Spencer) will encounter Fleming early in his pre-Bond career, when he served as an undercover British agent behind enemy lines.

I wish they picked Dominic Cooper again. Also, I didn't like Sean Maguire at all in Once Upon a Time. Still, this is not a show I'm going to miss.

    Another lazy depiction of Fleming as having a career basically on a par with Bond when he pretty much never left his desk except for that trip to the casino in Portugal.

    Bond was Fleming's wish fulfilment for sure but he was an ideas man not a field agent.

    I rather liked Sean Maguire as Robin Hood and detested the way his character was killed off on "Once Upon a Time". It's nice to see that he's still working.

    Exactly. He did however have a small taster of active service when he participated in the ill fated Dieppe raid. Flemings 30AU were tasked to ransack the towns Abwehr HQ & steal an enigma machine. Fleming stayed aboard one of the destroyers though.
