Thanks to Bo for the heads up.
Oh, don’t get your knickers in a knot! Naveen Andrews isn’t leaving Lost. However, if my hunch is correct, in this season’s 10th episode — a Sayid-centric outing that starts shooting later this week — a new actor will be playing his part.
“Whatchutalkinbout’, Willis?” you say?
Follow along now: A casting call has gone out for the roles of a father and his 12- and 8-year-old sons, all of whom, I’m told, will have to be fluent in Arabic. So wouldn’t a logical assumption be that the hotheaded dad is Sayid’s pop and the older boy, a sensitive type who’s painfully aware that he lets down his formidable paterfamilias, is the future assassin himself?
That’s what I thought, too! The hour promises to be a real crusher, with Dad teaching his elder son the kind of lesson in manhood that I suspect inflicts lifelong emotional scars.
Are you ready for Sayid’s untold story to be told? Or are you afraid that it will be so intense, it’ll qualify as must-wince TV? Comment away below!
After the Thanksgiving holiday, the LOST cast and crew were hard at work again, but this time in Othersville.
Today’s set report is via Grant, a LOST fan from Canada that visited the set and provided our good friend Ryan from Hawaii Blog with the details of what they were able to see. No filming was witnessed, but Grant and his lucky wife were able to speak with Evangeline Lilly and some VERY interesting details have been discovered including which cast members were on set and what they were wearing!
They learned that four of the six Oceanic 6 members (Kate, Jack, Sayid and Hurley) plus two on-island Losties Jin and Saywer were on set with Sayid in plain clothes, Kate in a blue jumpsuit and the other four apparently wearing tan Dharma jumpsuits!?
OMG!? Huh? WTF!?
Several other actors and children were a part of the shoot in the jumpsuits and several new Dharma VWs, a jeep, and bikes were also spotted!
So is this all a part of a time jump!? Is it present time and the Oceanic 6 have already made it back to the island!? Is this another confirmation Jin is alive?? Has Dharma been “re-populated”!? For some reason I feel it is somehow part of the time jump, but I am still trying to digest all of this.
So what do you all think is happening!? Below are a couple of pics, but make sure you check out the full set report and more pics at Hawaii Blog.
If you look carefully at the crew eating lunch it looks like you can see Hurley in the Dharma jumpsuit and Sayid in plain clothes.
NOTE: Earlier today we learned that Episode 5×09 is currently being filmed so expect all of this to appear around then.
