The Stars of 'Lost': Where Are They Now?
It's already been almost six months, believe it or not, since "Lost" aired its final episode ("The End"). So, what are the show's stars up to now? The answer to that mystery is straight ahead!
Matthew Fox (Jack Shephard): After fighting the good fight as Jack, the Oceanic survivors' reluctant leader, Matthew said earlier this year that he won't be flashing back (or sideways) to TV. "I won't be doing any more television," the star told UsMagazine.com. "I've done two six-year shows [the other being "Party of Five"], about 300 hours of television… I'm done with that." So, what's next for the 44-year-old father of two? Matthew is in talks to take the stage in a Neil LaBute play next spring in London, the Los Angeles Times says.
Terry O'Quinn (John Locke): Encouraging news for fans pining to see a "Lost" reunion of sorts: Terry, who as Locke was the island's resident "man of faith," is reportedly set to team up with Michael Emerson (a.k.a. evil genius Ben Linus) on a possible TV project from "Lost" mastermind J.J. Abrams. NBC has scored the rights to the new show, formerly called "Odd Jobs," about two ex black-ops cops, says New York Magazine's Vulture entertainment blog.
Josh Holloway (James "Sawyer" Ford): Known for spewing hilarious nicknames, stealing kisses with Kate (Evangeline Lilly), and occasionally kicking the Others' butts, Josh is now undertaking the "mission" of a lifetime: he'll star alongside Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner in the J.J. Abrams co-produced 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,' expected in theaters Dec. 16, 2011.
Evangeline Lilly (Kate Austen): The rumor mill says she's no longer dating her former "Lost" co-star Dominic Monaghan (a.k.a. Drive Shaft lead guitarist Charlie), but 31-year-old Evangeline is set to create sparks alongside Hugh Jackman in 'Real Steel.' Due out next October, the film stars Hugh as a former boxer who gets one last shot at a comeback when he teams up with his estranged son to build and train the perfect contender for the now high-tech sport of robot boxing.
Jorge Garcia (Hugo "Hurley" Reyes): As Hurley he was plagued by unlucky numbers, but Jorge's number is far from up as actor after "Lost." The 37-year-old funnyman is set to appear on CBS' "How I Met Your Mother." "I can't say much about the episode but I can assure you that I am not the mother," he joked with EW.com. "It looks like it is the Thanksgiving episode. I am not a super villain. I come in as a friend of one of the main characters. It was a lot of fun working with them." There's more Jorge news still. Despite his appetite for all those tasty airdropped Dharma snacks as Hurley on "Lost," in real life Jorge has drastically changed his eating habits. "I've been a vegetarian for about four months now," he told TV Squad earlier this month. "It's about the animals."
Daniel Dae Kim (Jin Kwon): Daniel's been a busy man of action. He stars as Chin Ho Kelly on CBS' "Hawaii Five-0," and he'll appear alongside Samuel L. Jackson and 'Twilight''s Kellan Lutz in 'The Killing Game,' an action-thriller expected out in 2011.
Harold Perrineau (Michael Dawson): Harold seems to love acting almost as much as his island alter-ego, Michael, loved his son Walt. The 47-year-old thesp's calendar is loaded with projects. He'll appear in the Nicolas Cage vigilante thriller 'The Hungry Rabbit Jumps' alongside Jennifer Carpenter ("Dexter"), January Jones ("Mad Men") and Guy Pearce. He'll also share the screen with Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") in the dark comedy "Cooler" and James Caviezel in the crime drama 'Transit.' Plus, Harold tangled with vampires this October in the direct-to-video sequel '30 Days of Night: Dark Days.'
Dominic Monaghan (Charlie Pace): Charlie may have met his maker in season three, but Dominic's "Lost" cameos continued right up through "The End." After starring on the short-lived sci-fi series "FlashForward," the 'Lord of the Rings' star is headed back to the big screen, appearing alongside Christian Slater and Ving Rhames in 'Soldiers of Fortune,' due in theaters next February. "I play this guy called Tommy Sin, a video game designer and multimillionaire. It is the story about a bunch of very rich people who pay a premium of money to put themselves into real-life skirmishes. I thought the script and cast was really interesting," he told California Chronicle earlier this month. Dominic's also filming a mystery called 'The Day.' As for his "Lost" legacy, the 33-year-old says: "I made my peace with that show a long time ago. I died in season three and probably halfway through series four I was happy with the story I told on that show. Coming back was always a bonus so doing those last scenes in season six I did not feel particularly involved in the show any more."
Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond Hume): Known on the island for tampering with the very dimension of time as Desmond, 43-year-old Henry told Crave Online in September that he was in a hurry to return to TV: "You know, I was looking to get back into TV as quickly as possible. I wanted to get away from Desmond. It just seemed that I was no longer Ian Cusick, I was Desmond. So I wanted to sort of like just shed that skin." Mission accomplished. Henry guest-starred on a couple episodes of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" that same month."
Naveen Andrews (Sayid Jarrah): Naveen, 41, will appear on the silver screen in the 2011 drama 'Hullo.'
Yunjin Kim (Sun Kwon): In October, Yunjin was a jury member on the 15th Pusan International Film Festival's New Currents competition.
