D23 Diary: Taylor Kitsch Previews 'John Carter'; Jon Cryer Previews 'Planes'; Disney Studios Recruits Top TV Voice Talent; 'Once Upon A Time' Preview


"Taylor Kitsch strips off his Panthers jersey for John Carter"


Look at Tim Riggins now! It's a far cry from the skinny, stringy-haired kid we met drunk on game day-- actually, it's a far cry from the "just out of jail" ex-football star literally building his own way from the ground up, too-- but fans of #33 can next see Taylor Kitsch (still with the trademark Riggins locks) on the big screen, and in 3D to boot, in Disney's John Carter.

After all, their newest ABC drama, Once Upon a Time, takes a magical look at famed fairytale characters we actually can visit at an already existing theme park that is advertised as the place where "dreams do come true."
