Now that the Lost adventure is complete, the cast members are free to move on to other big projects. Some of them will take a bit of time to relax and refresh before diving into new productions, but most have already got other things in the works. Here are some of the places we'll be seeing the Lost cast members:
The very handsome Naveen Andrews, aka Sayid Jarrah, was in two episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit this season. He played the enigmatic Detective Ash Ramsey. If you missed them, be sure to watch for the repeats this summer.
Matthew Fox, who played Lost's
Jack Shephard, has a film called Billy Smoke
that's currently in development. The plot summary is, "After a botched job nearly costs a hit man his life, he sets out to rid the world of all other assassins as his ultimate redemption." Be sure to watch for him in that film.
Daniel Dae Kim
One of the busier Lost
cast members is Daniel Dae Kim who played Jin Kwon. He stars in the pilot for the series Hawaii Five-O
. It's a revised version of an old TV series. I have no more information about his character in this series, but keep your fingers crossed that he'll be on your screen every week starting again in the fall.
Currently, he's also in a movie that's filming called Deathgames
. This movie that also stars Samuel L. Jackson, is expected to be released in 2011 and is described this way: "David Lord finds himself forced into the savage world of a modern gladiatorial arena, where men fight to the death for the entertainment of the online masses."
We can also watch for him in a movie entitled The Adjustment Bureau
that will be out later this year. It also stars Emily Blunt and Matt Damon. Here's the plot summary:, "The affair between a politician and a ballerina is affected by mysterious forces keeping the lovers apart."
The actress who played his wife Sun Kwon on Lost
, is Yunjin Kim. She has a movie in development too. The title of her film is The Unconditional
and there's not much information about it out yet. Be sure to watch for it, though.
Evangeline Lilly, aka Kate Austen, has a movie in pre-production called Real Steel
. Expect this film, which also stars Hugh Jackman out in 2011. Its plot summary is: "A boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000-pound robots that look like humans do battle." It sounds like a modern-day depiction of the old toys called Rock'em Sock'em Robots. Have I just dated myself...? ;-)
Emilie de Ravin
Fans of Emilie de Ravin, aka Claire Littleton, have several of her new projects to watch for. First, she is the voice of Eglantine in the upcoming animated film Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
due out later this year. That film also features the voices of True Blood's Ryan Kwanten, along with Geoffrey Rush & Helen Mirren. It's described as, "Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers."
Emilie is also in three other films due out this year:
||"An FBI Agent is hot on the tracks of FrÃ©dÃ©ric Bourdin who has taken up the identity of a woman's long lost son completely convincing the police and the boy's family of his identity."
||Her co-star is Robert Pattinson: "A romantic drama centered on two new lovers: Tyler, whose parents have split in the wake of his brother's suicide, and Ally, who lives each day to the fullest since witnessing her mother's murder."
||"A battle ensues among groups of government spy teams in an underground facility after their boss is assassinated."
Of course, Michael Emerson, aka Ben Linus, has a project in the works. It's a film short entitled Goldstar, Ohio
. Not much information is available about it, but he is always great in everything, so it will most likely be good too.
If you watched Lost
from the beginning, you remember Dominic Monaghan who played Charlie Pace, the addicted rock star that met with a tragic end. He has a movie in development called Pet
. Again, there isn't much info about this film just yet, but keep an eye out for it.
Another super-busy Lost
cast member is Harold Perrineau who played Harold Perrineau. He was a guest star on CSI: NY
this season. You might remember it as the episode in which Sheldon Hawkes was trapped inside a penitentiary just as the inmates took over. It was a pretty intense episode, so if you missed it when it first aired, be sure to watch for it when it re-airs this summer.
But he's also in four upcoming new movies...yes, four. He's been a very busy man! Here's a bit about each of them:
||actor & executive producer
||"The story of a school shooting unfolds in series of tense documentary style interviews where we learn what triggered the violent acts."
|The Killing Jar
||actor & executive producer
||"A stranger armed with a shotgun takes seven patrons hostage in a remote roadside diner."
|The Hungry Rabbit Jumps
||"After his wife is assaulted, a husband enlists the services of a vigilante group to help him settle the score."
|30 Days of Night: Dark Days
||"After surviving the incidents in Barrow, Alaska, Stella Olemaun relocates to Los Angeles, where she intentionally attracts the attention of the local vampire population in order to avenge the death of her husband, Eben."
And, of course, another former Lost
cast member, Elizabeth Mitchell, aka Juliet Burke, has been very busy too. You've probably seen her on the Sci-fi series "V"
where she plays Erica Evans. It's a story about aliens that come to Earth and their intentions are unclear at first.
She is also in a film that is in post-production called Answers to Nothing
. (Postproduction means that the film is being edited and the pieces of all the scenes are being put together to create the finished project. That means that the filming is complete.) Here's the description:
"Against the backdrop of a missing girl case, lost souls throughout Los Angeles search for meaning and redemption and affect each other in ways they don't always see."
Sadly, all good things, including TV series must eventually come to an end. But the good thing is that the wonderful stars of Lost are still going to be in films and series for us to enjoy for a long time.
