Mark Pellegrino Confirms Season 6 Return

Bandar Ceme OnlineThanks to http://llegaronparaquedarse.blogspot.com/ for the heads up on this interview with Mark Pellegrino who confirms that he will be in multiple episodes this season.

Lost is one of the most complex and dense series ever produced. Having stepped into the show so late in The Game, with your first appearance in the fifth-season finale, “The Incident,” how much do you need to understand the Lost universe in order to play a character as enigmatic as Jacob?
My wife can usually know the end of a movie from the beginning. She knew within five minutes that Bruce Willis was dead in The Sixth Sense. Very annoying sometimes. And she doesn’t even know what it means yet or where everything is going in Lost. And that’s the beauty of that show. They always surprise ya. Since I’m not quite as clever as her — when the ring rolled across the floor, so did my jaw — I prefer to be on a need-to-know basis. I know what I need in the scene and how I feel about it. And that’s it, although I occasionally get an ominous hint or two…which I can’t reveal.

How much have (Lost writers-producers) Damon Lindelof and Bryan Burk and the guys told you about Jacob? And to your thinking, who — or what — the hell is this guy?
On this account I can say very little. The things I do know, I am sorry to say, will be revealed at a later date.

We tried. Let’s go at it this way. How many episodes can we expect to see you in? And what are the chances you’ll be around long enough to appear in the series finale?
There will be a number. But the amount and placement are locked away in a safe, deep in a cave in Diamond Head.

Season 6 Status Report From Doc Jensen

Menang CemeNothing much we didn’t already know but a good read.

Based only on isu released or confirmed by the producers. While you won’t find any spoilerific ”Transmissions” here, I encourage anyone who has endeavored to remain deliberately ignorant about Lost 6.0 to skip over the next several paragraphs.

What we know? Lost began production in August and just finished shooting the eighth episode of its 16-episode, 18-hour season, which includes a two-hour premiere and a two-hour finale. The title of the first episode: ”LA X.” At Comic-Con last July, exec producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof showed three short videos ΓÇö a Mr. Cluck’s commercial with millionaire Hurley, an America’s Most Wanted segment about fugitive Kate, and an Oceanic Airlines ad touting its spotless safety record ΓÇö that contained details that deviated from established continuity. Did Juliet succeed in changing history by detonating Jughead in the Dharma Initiative past? The producers say: That’s exactly the question we should be asking. (I’ll have more thoughts in this issue in the READER MAIL section.)

Who’s in, who’s out… Emilie de Ravin’s maybe-dead Claire ΓÇö last seen haunting Kate’s dreams and hanging with Ghost Christian in Jacob’s shack ΓÇö rejoins the narrative in a big way after going MIA last season. A number of certifiably deceased characters will be making seemingly inexplicable return appearances this coming season, including Charlie (Dominic Monaghan, now of FlashForward), Boone (Ian Somerhalder, now of The Vampire Diaries), and birthday-ambiguous Charlotte (Rebecca Mader, who can currently be seen in The Men Who Stare At Goats). The producers also recently told my colleague Dan Snierson that Juliet is indeed toes up ΓÇö but actress Elizabeth Mitchell will materialize at least twice during the simpulan sweep of episodes. (Let’s take a moment and shoot furious eye darts of blazing indignation at her new show, V, for completely letting Mitchell down with mediocre material.) Nestor Carbonell (Richard Alpert) has been promoted to series regular. Henry Ian Cusick, who plays Desmond Hume, will not be a series regular this season, but it’s believed we haven’t seen the last of the ex-Hatchman.

…and who’s new: Hiroyuki Sanada, a popular Japanese actor who worked with Matthew Fox in Speed Racer, has been cast as a character named Dogen. (New Lost Philosopher Reference Alert! Dogen Zenji was a fabled Zen Buddhist teacher.) John Hawkes (Deadwood) has been cast as Lennon, whose name has me humming ”Imagine” while painfully recalling that time in high school when I took a test about Russian history and I got docked one full grade for consistently misspelling ”Lenin” as ”Lennon.” Damn the corrupting mind virus that is the Beatles! Other familiar faces/names scheduled to appear this season: Sheila Kelley (L.A. Law, Sisters) and William Atherton, the always-entertaining character actor who specializes in playing… well, a–holes.

What’s next? Possibly very little. Team Lost would like to keep as much of season 6 under wraps as possible ΓÇö even down to keeping ABC’s promotional campaign free of any season 6 imagery. We’ll see if this plan holds. Examples of other hotly anticipated pop culture that considered ΓÇö then reconsidered ΓÇö ”No Advertising” gambits: Star Wars: Episode 1 ΓÇö The Phantom Menace and James Cameron’s Avatar. In both cases, the producers and the studio (Fox) decided that remaining secretive would only further stoke already unrealistic expectations. However, movies and TV shows have very different concerns. Moreover, the very premise of Lost’s simpulan season (i.e., will the story take place in a rebooted or non-rebooted time line?) is itself a massive spoiler. And regardless: I don’t think anyone who has stuck with this show for this long really needs any more wind up for the saga’s climactic act.

Mark Pellegrino Reveals The Year Across The Sea Took Place In

Bandar Ceme OnlineI’m not sure if this is a spoiler or not as it’s from an episode that has aired, but as they didn’t reveal it in the show itself it still may be a plot point coming up.

Thanks to Ryan for the heads up on this article from People.com in which Mark Pellagrino mentions 43 AD. We had revealed that the episode starts in 23AD from the scripts that our sources had access to.

“There are no archetypes here. Even though we’re roughly configured into these black and white characters, the line between good and evil is blurred and we both cross over sometimes. If you think Jacob is a heroic character…it’s his temper, his need for revenge that creates the Smoke Monster. Jacob has a long way to go from that episode in 43 AD to the present. He travels a long distance, and he does it alone because he lost his family in one fell swoop. How terribly lonely.”

Getting Lost: Who Will Take Jacob’s Place?

Menang CemeLost question No. 4,815,162,342: Which candidate will take Jacob’s place as guardian of the island?

Jacob And The Man In Black Are Not The Epitome Of What Lost Is

Bandar Ceme OnlineGiven all the time Lost has spent lately on Jacob (Mark Pellegrino) and the Man in Black (Terry O’Quinn), you might think they’re the key to the show or something. They’re not.

“It would be mis-categorizing to think this is the epitome of what Lost is,” executive producer Damon Lindelof tells TVGuide.com. “Obviously the island was there before these babies were born, and lots of things were going on before they came there. What those stories are isn’t relevant to the story we told, which is the crash of Oceanic 815 and what the ultimate fates of the survivors are.”

Okay, but in that case, why so much attention on the dueling brothers? Your guess is as good as ours. The penultimate episode, which Lindelof screened last week at an event in Los Angeles, still leaves plenty of questions unanswered going into the 2 ┬╜-hour finale (airing Sunday at 9/8c). Lindelof’s explanation of what to expect echoes a line Jacob delivered to the Man in Black in the Season 5 finale: “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

“I wish that we could say that the finale is going to be enormously definitive,” Lindelof says. “We found that when we told people that we’ve got definitive answers coming, it’s not as definitive as the fans want it to be, therefore there’s this ongoing and vociferous debate about what things mean.

“All we can say is: Lost is only ending once,” he adds. “There’s only one finale. There’s not a question mark at the end of the end. There’s not a dot, dot, dot. This is our story and it’s over. Hopefully there’s going to be a lot of interpretation in its wake.”

Whatever the ending, Lindelof is grateful to have made it this far, he says.

“This was a pilot where the question asked secondary to ‘What is the monster?’ was ‘How will you sustain this as a TV series?'” he says. “If I had said, ‘We’ll be fine for 120 episodes, and then we’ll end it,’ nobody ever would’ve believed it, including me. I think the show is a blessing and we’re really grateful to be here.”
