We know that many Once Upon a Time fans are currently counting down the seconds until Hook and Emma tie the knot in the upcoming musical extravaganza. (FYI, it’s only 1,209,600 seconds away.) So we’ve got something that is going to curb your Captain Swan cravings!

ET has your first look photo of Hook looking oh-so dashing in his wedding tux, plus exclusive details from set about how this velvet suit was selected, and why fans are going to be “very happy” with Emma and Killian’s journey down the aisle.

“I think I can probably credit [Once Upon a Time showrunner] Eddy [Kitsis] for this look,” star Colin O’Donoghue dished of his suit to ET during a joint interview with Jennifer Morrison on Once’s Vancouver set last month. “We were going to go in a different direction and Eddy was like, ‘It has to be black velvet!’ So that’s it — it’s black velvet.”

“It’s really soft though,” the 36-year-old actor added with a laugh.

Kitsis further explained to ET that he and co-executive producer Adam Horowitz had a very specific vision in mind when it came to Hook’s look.

“Adam and I both thought that Hook needed to have a tux that reflects his personality, so you can’t go from leather to just a basic tux,” he revealed. “We felt like he had to have a little edge to it so the velvet felt like the Hook-version of fancy.”

When asked if he feels “suave” in his wedding attire, O’Donoghue was bashful with his response. “I guess so,” he chuckled. “I hope it looks OK.”

“You look amazing!” co-star Jennifer Morrison chimed in while looking dazzling herself in her intricately laced wedding gown. “He’s been getting a little jealous about all of the attention the dress has been getting, so I’m trying to butter him up a little bit about his velvet jacket.”

While Morrison hopes that “brains explode” when Captain Swan fans finally witness Emma and Killian’s vows to one another, O’Donoghue was a bit more sentimental with his predictions.

“I think that they’ll be very happy,” he said. “Because even to get to this point in this season, they’ve had such ups and downs. So to get to this place, within the realm of what’s about to happen to them and all that kind of stuff, is pretty impressive.”

O’Donoghue continued, “They’ve just decided that, ‘You know what? We love each other, we want to be together and now is the time to do it.'”

This interview also contains spoilers, DO NOT read if you want to avoid being spoiled!

Wedding bells will soon be ringing — and the residents of Storybrooke will also be singing — during Once Upon a Time‘s highly anticipated musical episode.

At the close of Sunday’s episode, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) was able to rescue Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) from Neverland, so he promptly and properly proposed. EW can, therefore, reveal that Emma and Hook are really getting married, which is the basis of the May 7 musical hour!

“When we started talking about the musical, we wanted it to be a special episode,” executive producer Edward Kitsis says. “We thought Emma’s wedding felt like the natural milestone for us.”

Adds executive producer Adam Horowitz: “It felt like the right place. Hopefully, when you see how the device works within the episode and how it relates to Emma and her character journey, it all seems to make sense that it would lead up to this. It worked on both a plot and character level, and it allowed us the fun of actually doing a musical episode.”

Stay tuned for much more news about Emma and Hook’s wedding, as well as why the residents of Storybrooke will be breaking into song! In the meantime, read our postmortem with Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas about that heartbreaking Snow and Charming reveal here.

This interview contains spoilers, so don’t read it if you tend to avoid them.

We at ET are thrilled to confirm that Once Upon a Time’s highly anticipated musical extravaganza — which will air Sunday, May 7 — will also be the episode in which Emma Swan and Killian Jones get married.

(We’re just going to pause here for a second to let that glorious news sink in and for the subsequent screams of excitement die down. All good? Great! Now take another deep breath and keep reading…)

ET had the pleasure of visiting Once Upon a Time’s set in Vancouver, Canada, last month during filming of the musical matrimony, and we asked the star-studded cast what their initial reaction was after discovering that Emma and Hook would be tying the knot in season six’s penultimate episode.

“I thought it was perfect,” Jennifer Morrison gushed to ET during a joint interview with co-star Colin O’Donoghue. “We just felt, like, what better way to make it feel extra special than to have [the wedding] also be the musical episode?”

From recording the original songs, to learning the choreography and finding the inspiration for her wedding gown, (more on that later!) Morrison revealed that working on the musical episode has been a career highlight.

“It’s been so fun!” the 38-year-old actress exclaimed. “I mean, I feel like I just keep repeating myself: It’s just so fun! it’s just so fun!”

“You’re going to have a whole article of Jennifer saying, ‘It’s just so fun!’ over and over again,” O’Donoghue said with a laugh.

When asked how they would tease the episode for the fans, the actors were quick to cut to the chase.

“It’s a musical episode where Hook and Emma…” Morrison began thoughtfully.

“Get married!” O’Donoghue chimed in with a smirk. “Teased! Boom!”

“Oh wait, you mean without a spoiler? Umm, but it’s a spoiler, on top of a spoiler, wrapped in a spoiler!” Morrison dished. “Hook and Emma find themselves on a brand new adventure that changes the rest of their lives. Wait, that’s not good. Hmm, OK. Hook and Emma follow through on a critical decision…”

“With music, and dance, and some mighty fine romance!” O’Donoghue added.

Although we’re not going to reveal any specific episode details at this time, we can tell you that Morrison and O’Donoghue are well aware that Captain Swan fans are going to completely lose it when they see Emma and Killian’s wedding.

“I hope their brains explode!” Morrison giggled playfully. “I mean, I hope they enjoy it as much as we have. It’s been so fun. I just said it again!”

Listen up, Oncers!

After Hook assisted in saving Agrabah, the pirate will continue his quest to get back to Emma during Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time.

In a bid to get back to Storybrooke, Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) aims to use Black Beard (Charles Measure), but the duo instead end up in very familiar territory: Neverland! But not everyone will be pleased about his return. “He was Captain Hook working for Peter Pan in Neverland for many, many decades,” executive producer Edward Kitsis tells EW. “Although we killed Pan and freed the Lost Boys, not every Lost Boy decided they wanted to come with; there’s always the true believers. My guess is they don’t have a nice homecoming for him.”

“The Lost Boys who are there are the ones who didn’t want to leave when everybody was rescued before,” O’Donoghue adds. “They still see Hook as the ultimate enemy. He’s the one that they want to kill, so it’s as dangerous as it could be.”

Upon his return to Neverland, Hook will also cross paths with another familiar face in Tiger Lily (Sara Tomko). “They have a history together,” O’Donoghue teases. “It’s undisclosed what type of history it is, but they definitely have a history, and we learn a lot more about Tiger Lily and a little bit about Hook’s past in Neverland, which is always fun for me to get to be a part of.”

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

There are plenty of heartfelt love stories on Once Upon a Time, but none of them quite compare to that of Captain Hook and Emma Swan. They may be in a predicament at the moment, but not even Gideon can come between true love. While the future of the show is still uncertain, we have hope that these two will find their way back to each other in the end. POPSUGAR had the opportunity to talk with Colin O’Donoghue, who was promoting his new film Carrie Pilby, and he reflected on how far his fan-favorite character has come over the years, what it’s like working with Jennifer Morrison, and what he thinks Hook’s happy ending might look like.

POPSUGAR: Hook has changed a lot over the past few seasons. What do you think is his most admirable quality?
Colin O’Donoghue:
I mean, he’s a different character now. It’s probably that he’s redeemed himself and is trying to be the best person that he can be, which is a difficult thing to do, to overcome those demons for the better of not just himself, but for the better of the woman he loves and her family. However, I did love playing the villainous Hook. It’s always fun to get to play the bad guy.

PS: Hook and Emma are definitely one of the most beloved romances on the show. What is the best part about working with Jennifer Morrison?
CO:
I’m lucky that Jen and I have got a fantastic relationship. We get on so well and it makes it easy to translate that into the characters. Jen is friendly with my family and my wife and all of that is very important. Sometimes when you come onto a show, you don’t know if that’s going to work or if the chemistry is going to be there, and we just have a laugh. That’s the most important thing is to enjoy what you do. We’re at ease working with each other, because if you have tension with someone, that translates on screen. Luckily, on Once Upon a Time, we get along so well, so it works.

PS: I know the show hasn’t been renewed for another season yet, but what do you think Hook’s happily ever after would look like?
CO:
Hook’s happily ever after would just be getting an evening or night where both he and Emma can sit down and maybe have dinner or watch TV or have a glass of wine, because in Storybrooke, they literally never get a chance to do anything. As soon as anything slows down, you guarantee Grumpy is going to come running around the corner saying that some sort of curse is coming or there’s a giant snowman attacking the town. I think his happily ever after would just be a week’s worth of peace and quiet where they can be normal people. Maybe we’ll get to see that in the second half! That would be good.

Carrie Pilby Star and Once Upon a Time‘s Captain Hook Talks About Star Wars, Gene Hackman, and the 1970s Zoom Technique.

It’s not every day you get to talk to Captain Hook on the phone, but thankfully the actor playing him on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, Colin O’Donoghue, is a charming and delightful man. O’Donoghue also appears this week in a new film called Carrie Pilby — a comedic drama in which he plays a professor with decidedly questionable ethics (more on that later), and he was only too happy to share his Five Favorite Films with us. Read on for his list:

12 Angry Men (Twelve Angry Men) (1957) 100%

My first one is 12 Angry Men. I remember I watched it at school, I think I saw it at fourteen for the first time. And when you’re that age, you kind of want to watch big blockbuster movies and all that kind of stuff. And I just couldn’t get over the fact — basically it doesn’t leave the room for the whole movie. And it’s just these guys sitting around discussing this crime, and whether or not they’re going to find the guy guilty or not. I just found it so engaging and stuff. You know the cast and stuff was just incredible with Henry Fonda and Lee J. Cobb, and all these incredible actors. I just thought it was mind blowing, you know?

I think it was based on a radio play — I don’t know. And then I figured it was a theatrical play, and then they made a movie. That’s the other thing, I was also just beginning to start to want to be an actor. Or join the theatre group in my hometown. It all sort of happened at the same time, and I was beginning to understand it a little bit more about how they’re engaging, and how you can hold people’s attention for that long just by the performance itself.

If it’s in one room — to adapt a play and to have it be riveting on screen — that’s really something.

Yeah. It’s a difficult thing. You know? But it’s just incredible of them.

That’s one thing about trying to figure out these five movies; I really want to go back and watch all of them again. Just sit in my house and watch them.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994) 91%

That’s another one for me that, basically it’s stunning how — it’s an incredible watch. And I think it’s the performances, again, I find riveting. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman are just incredible. It’s just such a beautiful film, I think. The story is incredible, it’s so well made. I think Frank [Darabont] dialed in on the direction — I love all of his movies. They have a style that I really like. Anytime I think of this movie, it’s just a sweeping shot coming over the prison while Morgan Freeman is narrating his — it’s such an incredible sense of memories. I went to see it with my parents; I guess I was thirteen when it came out. I think I was — or fourteen — and I remember just being absolutely blown away by it. I mean I know it’s one that’s on nearly everybody’s list, but for me it was also — it was kind of like the first sort of grown-up movie that I went to see with my parents, and that we could have a proper conversation about.

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) 93%

The next one I’ve given is a given. It’s Star Wars. It’s definitely a part of my childhood. It’s hard for me to pick — I think Empire is probably my favorite of the three. But if I was to pick one, I think the first Star Wars would have to be the one, because that’s the one that I remember most. I was a Star Wars fanatic growing up. I guess I still am. Pretty much for everybody who grew up in the 1980s as well, it’s a symbol of their childhood. And most people — it reminds me back home in Ireland it used to be on every Christmas. It was sort of… You got all the action figures and all that kind of stuff. And it was just an incredible, incredible movie, and then when [the others] came out, they were sort of events when I was a teenager — that you wanted to go see them. Even if they weren’t as good.

Star Wars became a lifestyle.

Yeah, I think so. Because I remember I used to have a Super Nintendo, and I remember getting the Star Wars game on the Super Nintendo. And that was like — anything and everything Star Wars was such a huge deal. I don’t know what age you are, but I’m 36, and when they began to come out with more and more action figures or t-shirts and retro shirts and stuff, you kind of had to have everything. But now there is just a lot of Star Wars stuff around — kind of a lot of everything.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) 85%

The next one is Temple of Doom. That’s the one that sticks with me most. I was born in ’81, so I know that was [when] the first Indiana Jones was. But I remember Temple of Doom most, and so I just have to pick that. I mean, it’s for pretty much the exact same reasons as Star Wars. It’s my childhood. Indiana Jones is the character that I just wished that I was, you know what I mean? [The one] I wanted to be as a little kid. And they’re also just really, really well made, fantastic movies. You know, all the Indiana Jones — well the first three anyways.

I also love that time period. I love that sort of 1930s and 1940s, I love that period — the thought of it. And I like war movies and all that kind of stuff as well.

The Conversation (1974) 98%

Well the next one is less action oriented. This is where I began to struggle. Because I had my first four and was like, “Okay, that’s perfect,” and then I had to pick another one. This decision is a bit tough; there’s a three way tie for this, I should say. I’m going to pick The Conversation with Gene Hackman and John Cazale. And the reason I’m thinking this is, I did a movie with Anthony Hopkins called The Rite, and the director of photography — we talked a bit. And he really wanted to have that ’70s feel and stuff — it’s when they just started to use the zoom lens for the first time, and how innovative it was. And then in the 1980s, it became overused and used for the wrong reasons and all that kind of stuff. The Conversation is one that, if you watch The Conversation for the opening sequence where you hear a conversation taking place as the master — this zoom from way up is zooming in over a park. And I was just absolutely blown away by it because you can hear exactly what’s happening, but you don’t see. You’ve got no idea who’s talking. You don’t know where they are or what’s happening. I was blown away. And Gene Hackman is one of my favorite actors. I just think he’s incredible; I could watch him read the phone book. I could watch him pretty much not do anything [laughing]. You just wonder what’s going on in his mind. He’s one of those actors who is saying one thing, but you know there’s so many different things going on inside of his head. You just never know exactly what it is and stuff. I love that. I love being kept guessing.

Francis Ford Coppola is one of the greatest directors of all time, and what I thought was great was that it sort of embodies that period of time. Even though it was made in the ’70s and it’s a very specific ’70s movie, I think it’s very, very particular to today. You know, with surveillance and all that kind of stuff. And I just think the whole idea of it is incredible, and it’s just so well made.

Kerr Lordygan for Rotten Tomatoes: Did you have any moral conflicts with your character in Carrie Pilby?

Colin O’Donoghue: [Laughing] What impressed me with the character — because I signed on pretty early — was that I work on a TV show called Once Upon a Time — I play Captain Hook — and for me it was important to play a character that was very different from the character that I do 22 episodes [each] of for the last four years, you know what I mean? What I liked in the script was that the story that was told in the context of different men in her life then as well. So you had the professor I play, and you had the eventual boyfriend who she ends up with — all these different guys — her father and stuff. And I like the fact that he’s such a horrible piece of work, this professor. It was just nice for me to get to play that and see how I could put a little bit of myself into it.

RT: It’s a total 180 from Captain Hook, that’s for sure.

O’Donoghue: Yeah. It’s also nice just because the cast is incredible. Susan [Johnson]‘s a fantastic, amazing director. And it’s great material. I don’t get a chance to do that much because we shoot nine months of the year. So it’s nice to have that window and get to do something really, really, fun and with a great cast and great script. So, I was delighted.

Carrie Pilby opens on Friday, Mar. 31, 2017 in limited release and On Demand Tuesday, Apr, 4, 2017.
