[...] Reliable sources close to Lost confirm to me exclusively that Andrea Roth - aka Denis Leary's long-suffering spouse on Rescue Me - is joining the cast in a recurring role. Details about her character are being kept under wraps, but a recent Lost casting notice went out for a female character in her mid-thirties described as "a tough, no-nonsense and beautiful" therapist who has a tendancy to be "overly controlling and obsessive."

The mysterious Minkowski, whose voice was heard on the other side of the satellite phone found by the "Lost" gang, now has a face as Fisher Stevens has been tapped to play the role on the ABC/ABC Studios series.
Stevens will recur as Minkow¬ski on "Lost." The character, which was referenced several times toward the end of last season, was only heard talking to Jack (Matthew Fox) on the phone and told the survivors in the third-season finale in May that they will be rescued.
In the "Lost" fan blogosphere, the name of the character has been tied to German mathematician Hermann Minkowski, whose Minkowski space -- a four-dimensional system including the three dimensions of space plus the dimension of time -- was used in Einstein's theory of special relativity.
Stevens, who recently co-directed the critically praised documentary, "Crazy Love," is repped by Fortitude and the Collective.
CS! sprach mit Maggie Grace aka Shannon...
CS: [...] Do you miss doing "Lost" and living in Hawaii?
Grace: I miss the people, but I get to see them pretty often. It's uncanny that no matter where I'm shooting that Josh Halloway and his wife, Jessica, who is a great friend of mine, manage to come. Vancouver, Paris, they were there to work when I was there. I live in the same neighborhood in L.A. as some of castmates. It's really great that way how we've kept in touch. I'm going to visit them in Hawaii for the weekend. We keep in touch. I can't complain. Sure I miss Hawaii, but I just shot a movie in Paris.
CS: Do you think "Lost" might call you up to get you to do more flashbacks?
Grace: If it works with my schedule. I adore a lot of people that happen to live on Oahu.
CS: Now they seem to be flashing forward for the upcoming season.
Grace: That's what I hear. That's an interesting choice. I like that. [...] SPOILER !!! [...]
CS: So would they just call you and say, "Hey we want to have you in an upcoming episode"?
Grace: They just call and check my availability I guess. I agreed to come back for a second season, I wasn't obligated. [...]

TV Guide berichtet über die "Wiederauferstehung" von Libby...
OK, so technically, the ABC hit isn't bringing Cynthia Watros' short-lived character back from the dead. But Lost executive producer Carlton Cuse confirms to me exclusively that the actress will be playing Hurley's dearly departed sweetheart again this season for multiple episodes, presumably in more flashbacks.
"She'll be in enough of the show for us to fill in the missing pieces of her story," says Cuse. "We could not be more pleased. Cynthia is a smart and engaging actor, and [executive producer] Damon [Lindelof] and I have some very cool parts of her story left to tell." [...]
The new season of Lost is still over five months away (arrrrggggh!!!), but shooting on the first episode is underway, and the show's five new cast members are officially in place. Yes, we said five: Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse tell EW.com that Jeff Fahey - a cult-pop fave most famous for The Lawnmower Man and most recently seen in Grindhouse - has been added to the show, joining previously announced newcomers Jeremy Davies (Saving Private Ryan), Lance Reddick (The Wire), Ken Leung (The Sopranos), and British actress Rebecca Mader (The Devil Wears Prada, Love Monkey).
The producers wouldn't comment on the character that Fahey will be playing, but said he was the first and only choice for the role. ''The Lawnmower Man and [the 1995 TV series] The Marshall are personal faves,'' says Cuse. ''And he has the most intense eyes of any guy out there, and I say that as a non-gay man.'' Adds Lindelof: ''Fahey is one of those actors who feels like he fits into the Lost model: He's enormously talented and will be vaguely recognizable to some people, but he'll be able to land on our island without most people going, 'Oh, I know who that guy is.' And especially for the part we cast him for, he has exactly the right sensibilities.'' [...]
Two separate outlets have revealed new cast members for ABC's "Lost". First up, TV Guide says Lance Reddick will play Arthur Stevens:
Sources confirm that The Wire's Lance Reddick has been cast in the recurring role of Arthur Stevens, the intimidating corporate-recruiter character I first told you about in last week's Ask Ausiello. Reddick also had a lengthy arc on HBO's Oz, where he starred opposite returning Lostie Harold Perrineau.
E! Online, meanwhile, added two more names:
We're hearing that creepmaster Jeremy Davies (Saving Private Ryan) is doing eight eps of Lost this season, and one Rebecca Mader will have a major recurring role as well...perhaps as the much discussed Charlotte?
TV Guide meldet...
[...] Ken Leung - whose memorable turn as Uncle Junior's mentally unstable protégé on The Sopranos last season turned many a head in Hollywood (mine included) - is joining the cast of Lost next season, sources confirm to me exclusively.
It's believed Leung will be playing the recurring role of Russell*, a brilliant mathematician who is capable of great insights and has a tremendous knowledge across various scientific fields. He's expected to first turn up in February's season premiere.
Non-Sopranos fans may know Leung from his role as Kid Omega in Brett Ratner's franchise killer, X-Men: The Last Stand. [...]
Dedicated to expanding its network and channel brands across multiple platforms and connecting viewers with their favorite shows anytime and anywhere, Disney-ABC Television Group announced today that ABC.com is giving Lost fans a Valentine's Day surprise with the first installment of four video back stories (Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Locke). Created to provide new viewers insight into the lives of the series' characters and to give fans an opportunity to see characters' back stories in chronological order, each video combines scenes from previously aired episodes. Every Wednesday four back story segments will debut on ABC.com until the end of the season (60 total).
Go to ABC.com for this season's previously aired episodes on its broadband video player. And as announced last week, ABC.com has also added several new features on its Lost site, including a new video podcast with executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, which offers a special sneak peek at extra content from the series' Season Three DVD, to be released later this year. Additionally, visitors to ABC.com will find a new exclusive feature called "Writers' Rotation" that showcases the favorite music and listening selections of members of the Lost production team, plus an updated version of Lost & Found, which highlights not-to-be-missed moments in upcoming episodes, as well as excerpts from the official Lost magazine, updated games, photos and video clips.
ABC, Touchstone TV and the producers behind "Lost" are actively discussing how and when to retire the hit castaway drama.
According to "Lost" exec producer Carlton Cuse, picking an end date for "Lost" would help the show's creative team to map the next several seasons as they plot the show's thick mythology.
"It's time for us to find an endpoint to the show," said Cuse, speaking Sunday at ABC's portion of the TV Critics Assn. press tour. "It's a struggle for us, because we don't know if we have three years, four years or more to go. If we had an endpoint, then we could figure out where everything goes."
Such a move would placate fans of the show, who frequently gripe that they have no indication whether the show's ever-increasing mysteries will pay off. A set timetable would send a message to viewers that all of their questions will be answered eventually.
"Once we figure out when that will be, a lot of those concerns will go away," Cuse said. "The worst point is when a show ends and no one cares. We don't want that to happen. We want to make the shows good for as long as we do the show."
Cuse suggested the show could end once it hits 100 episodes in season five ("Lost" is currently shooting episode 62). But it's far more likely that "Lost" would continue at least through its seventh season, when the show's thesps' current contracts expire.
ABC Entertainment prexy Steve McPherson said discussions about the endgame for "Lost" are ongoing, but no plan has been identified as yet.
McPherson, Cuse and exec producer Damon Lindelof said they were conscious of the need to ensure "Lost" doesn't overstay its welcome with viewers.
"None of us want to be doing the show that's the stalling show -- 'We're building sandcastles this week,'" Lindelof quipped.
Cuse pointed to "The X-Files" as "a great show that probably lasted two seasons too long."
"That show was a bit of a cautionary tale for us," he said.
Determining an end date for a popular franchise isn't unprecedented; Cuse cited the "Harry Potter" books as a model the show would like to emulate.
"J.K. Rowling announced seven 'Harry Potter' books, (conveying a) certainty that that story is drawing to a conclusion," he said.
As for this year's split "Lost" season, McPherson said the net would run all 22 episodes of "Lost" straight through next year, perhaps starting in midseason (a la "24"). [...]

[...] What would you hope to see revealed about Lost?
I want to know why we’re all there - [laughter] - the big question.
Why you’re all there?
I want to know... Yeah.
What do you think is going to happen to your character, and what can you say about her future direction?
I don’t really know. It’s cleared up that the baby’s not dying at the moment and that she remembers, physically what happened, from, her memory being repressed when she was kidnapped. But what those injections actually did - apart from make her loopy - I mean, have they affected her? Have they affected her child? I want to know that because that really interests me. There has to be some kind of side effect to that somehow - I’m assuming, or guessing. Hoping - [laughter]. You know.
Do you hope to continue doing it until it’s at an end or... or do you think you’ll eventually get tired of the grind?
Who knows? I’m having an amazing time. I can only really say how I feel now which is, I’m having a great time. I love working with these people and I’m very lucky doing something that I love that people enjoy watching so much too - that’s pretty special. But, I mean, people are going to die on this show. That’s going to keep happening. And I’m sure because it’s quite real really -the show. I mean obviously - [laughter] - we’ve got monsters and polar bears and things but, it’s quite gritty and real in the fact that they don’t screw around, as far as... in a situation like this, the doctor on the island can’t save everyone. things are going to happen when you’re on an island with guns, weapons, animals and monsters. So, it’s sad when people die but then, I understand and it also makes it more interesting in a weird way. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how everything plays out.
Any idea what you’re going to be doing on your next hiatus?
No, I’m just sort of I guess starting to read things now. it’s... it’s that sort of time now. [...]

The ABC Television Network and Touchstone Television have partnered with Buena Vista Home Entertainment to create "Lost Video Diaries," an extension of the Emmy Award-winning series Lost, designed especially for mobile and DVD distribution platforms. The deal was announced by Bruce Gersh, senior vice president, Business Development, ABC Entertainment & Touchstone Television. The "Lost Video Diaries" is slated to premiere exclusively on the Verizon Wireless V CAST service in January.
Produced by Buena Vista Home Entertainment, "Lost Video Diaries" is based on an original concept by Lost co-creator/executive producer Damon Lindelof, and by Carlton Cuse, also an executive producer of the series. The original live-action content will consist of a minimum of 22 two-minute episodes. Featuring characters who were on Oceanic Flight 815 but whose storylines have not been seen on Lost, "Lost Video Diaries" will chronicle compelling tales from the island inspired by events taking place on the broadcast series.
Buena Vista Home Entertainment will also distribute the content as part of the Lost Season Two DVD boxed set, which will be the exclusive home to at least six of the episodes.
In making the announcement Gersh said: "We think that the 'Lost Video Diaries' are groundbreaking both in terms of the way they were conceived and the way they will be written and produced. Given the fervor fans have for this show, we're confident that the Diaries will fuel their enthusiasm and provide them with another avenue to access 'Lost' - new stories, new distribution. It's a great extension of one of televisions most respected brands."
Lost co-creator/executive producer Lindelof added: "Viewers always ask us, 'What's going on with the people in the background? Don't they have stories too?' Well, the answer is yes... and now we've got the perfect format in which to tell those stories."
"This is a perfect example of ABC, Touchstone Television and Buena Vista Home Entertainment working together to create original 'Lost' content," said Gordon Ho, executive vice president, Brand Marketing and Business Development, Buena Vista Home Entertainment. "We're especially excited that DVD fans will enjoy the final episodes of these 'Lost Video Diaries' exclusively on the Season Two DVD release."
Verizon Wireless VP-Marketing Bill Stone said: "We are pleased to be premiering this great made-for-mobile content, and know 'Lost' fans from coast to coast will tune into V CAST every week to extend their television experience. V CAST subscribers can learn the inside story wherever they are. We expect the 'Lost Video Diaries' content to be a huge hit."
Dawn Kelly and Matt Ragghianti are writing the episodes, and Lost producer Javier Grillo Marxauch will serve as an executive consultant on the project. Casting is set to begin this month and production will begin in December in Hawaii.
Lost, which counts among its six Emmy Awards one for Outstanding Drama Series, was co-created by J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof, who also serve as executive producers, along with Bryan Burk, Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse. The series, which is filmed entirely on location in Hawaii, is produced by Touchstone Television and is broadcast on the ABC Television Network.

Variety says that writers for ABC's Lost will soon be penning a subplot about a character named Gary Troup who didn't survive the crash but left behind a manuscript he was working on.
Troup is fictional, of course, and so is his supposed novel. But ABC sister company Hyperion Books will publish the "found" manuscript, in the hope of turning a fictional product-placement into a real one.
Working with writers from the series, Hyperion has commissioned a novel by a "well-known" mystery writer -- it's not saying who -- that supposedly constitutes the book. The book will be marketed as the work of an author who "delivered (his book) to Hyperion just days before Troup boarded Oceanic Flight 815."
The Lost novel, titled "Bad Twin," is a P.I. procedural involving a wealthy heir's search for his nefarious brother. It will be released this spring in conjunction with the series' related episodes.

According to Damon Lindelof, executive producer of TV's "Lost", Katey Segal, best known for her role in tube hits "Married with Children" and "Eight Simple Rules", has signed to guest-star on the abovementioned Emmy-Award winning series.
"It's for] at least one episode, but hopefully more. We'll see. She plays an iconic character in the mythology of one of the other character's stories", Lindelof tells E Online. [...]
Various internet and newspaper sites, including Monsters and Critics, are reporting that the TV series "Lost" might be headed to a projection booth.
According to the rumours, an uber-pricey film version of the hit series - currently one of the top-rating series on the Idiot Box - will likely happen at the end of the second series, or end of the third - depending on when ratings start to drop off.
The report states that three rival Hollywood studios are currently fighting to secure the rights to the movie, in a deal which would make the show's biggest stars at least $3.6 million million.
A series insider says, "The last thing producers want is a mutiny. Now they've hit a sure-fire way of hitting the big bucks. Three studios have said they are keen to make a Lost blockbuster. The show is seen in more than 70 countries, so it's guaranteed box-office success. Whoever puts in the best bid will get the prize".
The scooper adds, "Now the actors have been told about a film deal they're overjoyed. There are lots of ideas about how the story could end but it's thought that who ever is left will be found."
As the IMDB states though, "Lost" is owned by Disney's Touchstone so the house-of-Mouse would be making the film - if there were one. Kinda debunks the news automatically, yeah?
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Oz) is set to join the cast of Lost for the series' second season. Lost will have its season premiere Wednesday, September 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network, and will air Wednesdays at this time in the 2005-06 season.
Adewale will play Emeka, a mysterious man whose presence on the island - and intentions - will be revealed in one of the early episodes in the upcoming second season. [...]

J.J. Abrams on the Half-Season Straight Run for Lost and Alias: He would consider adapting the pattern for Lost. "It would require the network to hold the show back until January, which I don’t' think they would do because you can’t make it fast enough to start in September and go all the way through." But he hoes Alias will retain the format. "I’m not sure. I hope so, but I’m not sure."
J.J. Abrahams on the Lost Season Finale: "One of the requirements of the finale I think was to answer some questions and keep others out there. Like with everything, that’s the ambition and I believe we’ve succeeded but ultimately the fans are the judge."
J.J. Abrams on Lost Conspiracy Theorists: "I love it. I’m so grateful that people take the time and care enough to hypothesize what might be going on. It’s incredible. There have been things that some things have been close to storylines that we’ve done, but to me it’s what I’d be doing if I weren’t working on the show. I’d be getting on there and I’d be trying to see what other people think too. That’s kind of the fun of the shows is asking certain questions and hopefully answering questions as well. [...]"
