“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).
