‘Lost’ spoiler: Who’s Lennon?


“Lost” is just days away from starting production in Hawaii on the final season, which means that casting news is starting to trickle out of the jungle.

Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello got the scoop on a new recurring character named Lennon.

They want an actor in his mid-30s to late 50s, who can play this kind of guy:

<blockquote><div>Lennon: Scruffy, edgy, charismatic, and slightly stir-crazy, Lennon can be deferential when it’s called for. He’s the spokesperson/translator for the president of a foreign corporation. He’s a wily negotiator, and far more powerful than his lowly position would seem to indicate.</div></blockquote>

We all know that the producers never give out the characters’ real names in their casting calls, but is the name Lennon a clue?

And who does Lennon work for?

Sun’s dad, Mr. Paik, makes sense. This Lennon character might be one way the show explains how Paik Industries is tied to Widmore’s company and the Hanso Foundation (which funded the Dharma Inititative).

‘Lost’ news: Did the bomb plan actually work?


I probably don’t need to repeat that if you don’t want a morsel of scoop on the final season of “Lost,” then STOP READING NOW.

But if you do, here’s the latest from the jungle rumor mill…

You know that wacky plan to reset time by detonating a nuclear bomb?

It may have actually WORKED.

Greg Grunberg, the “Heroes” star who played Oceanic 815’s pilot in the show’s first episode, recently told TV Guide that he’s been approached about returning to “Lost” next season.

He claims he doesn’t know anything more about the writers’ plans, but that if his “Heroes” bosses approves the time off, he’ll be headed back to the island.

Since the pilot was eaten by the smoke monster shortly after 815 crashed, Grunberg’s character would be yet another of the seemingly dead who are reportedly set to appear in the final episodes. (It’s been all but officially confirmed that at least Charlie, Shannon and Boone will be back, too. And dead or undead, Elizabeth Mitchell has verified that we’ll also be seeing Juliet.)

But doesn’t it seem suspicious that the showrunners would go through such pains to bring back a minor character like the pilot? Unless, of course, Oceanic 815 lands safely in Los Angeles in 2004, just like it was supposed to, which effectively erases the past five seasons.

Speaking of L.A., here’s another bit of unconfirmed gossip about this very theory.

Several fan sites out there are claiming that the title of the final season’s two-hour premiere has been revealed…

‘Lost’ final season update: How often will we see Charlie?


Dominic Monaghan’s surprise appearance at last weekend’s Comic-Con seemed to confirm those rumors that we’ll be seeing more of Charlie Pace in the final season of “Lost.”

<a href=”http://view.picapp.com/default.aspx?term=dominic monaghan&iid=5601814″ target=”_blank”><img src=”http://cdn.picapp.com/ftp/Images/0/e/b/c/LOST_Panel_At_a058.jpg?adImageId=2056443&imageId=5601814″ width=”234″ height=”329″  border=”0″ alt=”LOST Panel At The San Diego Comic Con In CA”/></a><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://cdn.pis.picapp.com/IamProd/PicAppPIS/JavaScript/PisV4.js”></script>

But what exactly does that mean? Are we talking one fleeting Libby-like apparition? Or a full-blown season-long storyline?

Well, E! Online is reporting that Monaghan is signed, sealed and set to appear in three episodes. No word on how much screen time he’ll get in each one, however.

And we still don’t know the answer to the question that Monaghan himself posed about Charlie (via a written message on his palm at Comic-Con).

“Am I alive?”
