Colin O’Donoghue is heading to National Geographic. Deadline reports the Once Upon a Time star has joined the network’s upcoming TV show, The Right Stuff.
Based on the bestselling Tom Wolfe book, the drama series “takes a clear-eyed look at what would become America’s first “reality show,” as ambitious astronauts and their families become instant celebrities in a competition that will either kill them or make them immortal in the quest to be a part of Project Mercury.”
On The Right Stuff, O’Donoghue will be playing Lt. Gordon Cooper, the youngest member of the Mercury Seven. O’Donoghue joins fellow cast mates Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman, Aaron Staton, Michael Trotter, Micah Stock, and James Lafferty.
National Geographic Channel has not yet announced a premiere date for The Right Stuff.
