(06/06/06) - According to Scripps Howard News Service, Harold Perrineau (Michael) said recently that his character will not be returning this fall.
"As of so far, I am not back next season," he said. "I am not off the show, but I am not back next season, and I may not ever be back."
"I have no idea what is going on now," he said.
"I watched the show, and even I was confused," said Perrineau. "Sometimes what we get in the script is not what we see on the screen."
"There was no doubt we were ... going home," Perrineau said. "But when I watched it, I thought, 'well, does he get off the island?' Is he going to go out a couple of miles (into the sea) and turn around, come back and get help (for the hostages)?' Come on. Even I was confused by what I saw."
"They explained to me how cool it was for someone to actually get off the island," he said. "It is cool, but it's not exactly what I saw in terms of the story."
(06/05/06) - If you view the source code on the Hanso Foundation's website, you will find the address to another site: (www.djdan.am). The site is the homepage for a "conspiracy theorist" who seems very interested in the Hanso Foundation.

(05/23/06) - Executive producer Carlton Cuse told SCI FI Wire that he and the show's creators are deeply involved in the upcoming "mobisodes," or mobile-phone episodes. These mobisodes will now feature the main cast of Lost, instead of previously unknown characters among the survivors.
"We were able to negotiate this deal, which is going to allow us to use our series regulars in these mobisodes," Cuse said in an interview. "We don't want to do the 24 version, where you're dealing with characters you've never seen and have no relation to the central characters. We feel if we're going to do the mobisodes, they have to feature the characters that are part of the world of Lost that you know and love."
The mobisodes, exclusively from Verizon, will be available this fall. The two or three-minute segments are spun off of the main series.
What are the mobisodes about? "We have a concept for them," Cuse said. "You know, [series co-creator] Damon [Lindelof] and I have not written them yet, but we have a game plan." He added: "But the specifics of when they come on and how they'll be available and how you acquire them and everything, I think everyone's still trying to work all that out."
Also, game publisher Ubisoft has announced a long-term worldwide licensing agreement with Touchstone TV to develop a Lost video game. The game is scheduled to be released in 2007 for game consoles and PCs. In addition, McFarlane Toys will create a line of action figures based on the show's characters, scheduled for release this fall. The 6-inch figures include Jack, Kate, Hurley, Locke, Charlie and Shannon.
In other Lost news, 27-year-old actress Michelle Rodriguez, who served recently went to jail in Hawaii last month for drunk driving, will serve 60 days (starting May 31) for violating her probation with that arrest.

A midseason hiatus will also give ABC an opening to air a new show.
(05/15/06) - Newsweek recently interviewed the writers and cast of Lost about the upcoming season finale.
"We are going to tell you why the plane crashed," executive producer Carlton Cuse told Newsweek. "We're going to explain what happens if you don't push the button. And we're going to resolve the Michael-and-Walt story."
"It's tough being involved in a shoot with a large cast," says Dominic Monaghan. "Just the sheer politics can drag you down. So-and-so is not getting screen time. So-and-so is not showing up on time. So-and-so isn't behaving well on set. That's the toughest thing-coming home and going, Well, I behaved OK, but three or four people didn't."
"We're like brothers and sisters," says Evangeline Lilly. "There are days when you want to thank them for being in your life, and there are days when you want to punch them in the face."
"We never promised that there would be a unified-field theory of 'Lost'," says co-creator Damon Lindelof. "You'll get many small answers along the way, and ultimately you will understand this island, but all those answers might not necessarily be reduced to a simple one- sentence explanation."
(05/11/06) - More "Lost Experience" with the website address from last nights episode. This time the website is: http://www.sublymonal.com/ and I unlocked the code (heir apparent). You can enter the code in the newsletter space on the http://thehansofoundation.org/ website for more clues. But you will need the password from 1-877-HANSORG after you enter the code.
The Lost tie-in novel Bad Twin (remember Sawyer was reading the manuscript) was released with clues to the Hanso Foundation. On May 9th, 2006, the Hanso Foundation ran a quarter-page ad in several major newspapers (The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Chicago Tribune, etc). The ad was against the novel due to its "attacks" and "misinformation" about the Hanso Foundation.
(05/08/06) - J.J. Abrams recently told SCI FI Wire that season two's finale will be even more powerful than season one's. Abrams said that it has an ending that even surprised him.
"I can tell you that Damon Lindelof has done just that," Abrams said. "The ending of this year in Lost blows the ending of last season out of the water. It's an incredible finale. You'll see what happens, but I can tell you that a lot of it has been there and been building from the beginning of this season. It's not out of the blue, but what happens at the very end of this year, for me, it's the greatest finale I have ever heard."
"I look forward to going back to Lost, although, ultimately, I hope to do both [TV and films]. It was an amazing experience doing this movie. If they'll have me back to direct another movie, I'd love to do one."
(05/04/06) - For more information about the behind the scenes reasons behind the shocking events of last nights episode, "Two for the Road," check out TV Guide's Ausiello Report.
The "Lost Experience" is an Internet-based game that features a parallel story line. There is no prize, but the "game" will offer clues of the island's many secrets. Clues will vary by continent.
"It's like a giant, worldwide mysterious jigsaw puzzle that will come to life for all the world to solve," said Mike Benson, senior vice president of marketing for ABC Entertainment.
The experience will introduce new characters and the mysterious Hanso Foundation. Did you catch the first clue last night? The toll-free number to call, in America, is 1-877-HANSORG.
(05/01/06) - According to the Associated Press, Michelle Rodriguez (Ana Lucia) left jail on April 28 after serving her sentence for drunken driving. She chose to pay a $670 fine and spend five days in jail rather than do 240 hours of community service. Her recorded blood alcohol level was 0.17, more than twice the legal limit of .08.
(04/11/06) - Disney-ABC Television Group announced, starting in May, that it will offer ad-supported episodes of Lost (current full-length episodes) and Alias (entire current season), at ABC.com. This is part of a two-month-long experiment.
The episodes will be available the day after they premiere on ABC. Users will be able to pause and move back and forth between chapters within each episode, but will not have the ability to fast-forward through advertisements.
(02/07/06) - If the rumors reported in the National Ledger are true, then Ana-Lucia Cortez may be the next character to croak. Us Weekly reported that Ana-Lucia Cortez will be killed "as soon as they
(can) write it in."
"The producers are fed up with the fact that she barely shows up on the set and is always in a bad mood," Us Weekly quoting an "insider."
Meanwhile, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, who is writer and supervising producer for Lost, told SCI FI Wire that the second season will end with more than the standard 22 hours of typical one hour dramas.
"We are doing 23 episodes, but the 23rd is a two-hour finale, so it's actually 24 hours," Grillo-Marxuach said.
In comic book news, Grillo-Marxuach is working on an upcoming Marvel Comics miniseries that debuts in March. "I'm working on Marvel's Super-Skrull miniseries," he said.
"They have a big event called Annihilation," Grillo-Marxuach said. "That's their big spring line of comic books. I'm taking this 33-year-old Marvel villain and turning him into a hero and exploring him a little bit more closely. It's a four-issue miniseries that is part of a greater event. The event is a preamble with four four-issue miniseries featuring different characters, and then a six-issue miniseries that explains the Annihilation wave's assault on the Marvel galaxy. It's a huge event, and it's really cool. Working with Marvel characters that are legacy characters is pretty exciting."

Troup's supposed novel, Bad Twin, will be published by ABC sister company Hyperion Books and will be marketed as the work of an author who "delivered [it] to Hyperion just days before [he] boarded Oceanic flight 815."

(10/19/05) - According to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, A 20-year-old man, suspected of robbing Josh Holloway (Sawyer) and his wife at their Hawaii Kai home at gunpoint a week ago, was arrested (after being shot with pepper spray pellets and wooden rounds) on suspicion of first-degree burglary.

(10/14/05) - According to Reuters, Josh Holloway (Sawyer on Lost) and his wife were robbed at gunpoint in their Honolulu home.

Local station KHON-TV reported that the robber took cash and keys to a Mercedes Benz that was later found in the area.
(10/12/05) - Zap2it recently interviewed Michelle Rodriguez, the newest cast member of Lost. One of the things they talked about was her jump from independent film to TV.
"TV makes you so easily accessible," says Rodriguez, 27. "You don't want to overexpose yourself in the wrong way, and that's what I was scared about. I didn't want people seeing me every week and not getting the right idea about my career and where it's going -- directors especially. I worried about that, because for an independent film career especially, they don't want someone who is as well-known as a TV star. But I just really trust these guys, and I'm like, 'OK, I'm holding on. Take me for a ride.' "
They also talked about the difference between the more "feminine" side of Ana-Lucia seen last season and the new side of her character being seen this season.
"She's a cornered animal, a total warrior: a fighter, take it down, matter-of-fact, all about survival," Rodriguez said. "These people don't have a lot of the amenities that the people [in Jack's group] do, so they are constantly fighting for their survival."
"I think that connection [between the 'old' and the 'new' Ana-Lucia] is going to come whenever my character finally meets Jack, because that's the only person she will recognize from the plane," Rodriguez says "That will call into question the whole issue of what kind of person she is really, because this whole barbarian side of her is definitely a self-defense mechanism. How will she feel when she sees Jack, who is someone she trusts? I have no idea what that will be like -- and having said all that, at this point, I don't even know if they are going to meet at all."
(9/23/05) - According to Variety, the Emmy-winning series Lost opened its second season to record numbers on September 21. The second-season premiere acquired a 10.2 rating among adults aged 18-49 (23.47 million viewers overall), overwhelming the competition in every category from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Also, CNN has posted a review for the second season premiere and an interview with the cast.
(9/21/05) - Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse told SCI FI Wire they are finally going to provide some answers at the beginning of the Emmy-winning ABC show's upcoming second season.
"In terms of just the narrative and the characters, the second year is going to be different," Cuse said. "The first year was really about denial of their circumstances. They were looking for a way off the island. The second season of the show is about looking inward. Going into the hatch is the perfect metaphor for that concept. As they look inward, they're going to look more inward towards themselves. And obviously the revelation that there are survivors of the tail section is going to have a major impact on the society of our survivors."
The season premiere will take place moments after the events in the season-one finale. Lindelof also said that the big mysteries will remain this season, but the first three episodes will provide an "enormous" amount of island mythology. "What we find inside the hatch is going to drive the majority of season two," he said. "And the other side of season two is obviously what happens to our boys who were out on the raft." We will also learn more about the elusive Others. "Who are these people? What are they doing here? And why do they keep f--king with us? That becomes a big part of it," Lindelof said.
Lost will continue their flashback storytelling method. "The thing that's very exciting with Lost is there are still all these chapters of these people's pasts before the plane crashed," he said. "Everybody thinks with Locke [Terry O'Quinn], all we need to know is how he got in that wheelchair, and then we're done." Not so, he said.
Cuse added that there's a great deal still to learn about the characters. "Hopefully you'll be surprised," he said, "People have more [to] them than one defining event in their lives. I think we all have at least a handful of them, and they shape the people that we become."
Jorge Garcia (Hurley) told SCI FI Wire that he's as curious as everyone else about what the cursed numbers mean. "I'd gotten some hints about the lottery situation when we added the scene where I'm playing backgammon with Walt, and I tell him he'll get the money that I owe him," Garcia said. "That kind of [made me suspect], 'OK, I do have money.' But it's the cool, Twilight Zone aspects of my story that really make me anxious and anticipating. ... I want to find out why those numbers are on the hatch."
Executive producer Carlton Cuse said that he didn't foresee the fervor fans would have when it comes to the numbers. "If you were to ask us back during that story, the numbers were on a fundamental level a plot device for Hurley to go on this journey," Cuse said. "We understood that they were part of the mythology of the show, but we never thought that they would loom larger than the fact that Hurley was a lottery winner, or that people would be so engaged and interested and dissecting the meaning behind the numbers."
"There was a piece of toast on Ebay that had the mystery numbers on it," Garcia said. "I'm anxious to find out how much it sold for. ... There were two more copycat toasts that came after it, one with the numbers backwards. The other one was a kid's piece of toast, like a plastic toy toast. The first toast, if I remember correctly, I went and looked, and it was like $50. When I looked again it was $200. And I swear I saw it over five grand at one point. That's so incredibly insane ... for a piece of toast!"
Garcia, like the other actors and the fans, is curious about the big mystery of what's going on. "Particular people have their theories that we're in purgatory," he said. "I always feel like that's too easy. And they're going to have to explain how that creature in the woods does it by being a smoky tendril. How exactly does that tendril grab you and suck you down the hole? I know they know how it works, because I was talking to the guy who created the effect for it. He said, 'They explained to me how it was, and it's really fascinating. But we're not allowed to tell you how it happens."
"I think it's based on that cartoon thing when they put the pie on the windowsill, and it would drag the character to the window," he said. "Yeah, the whole thing's going to be a big pie on the windowsill. ... A pie on the windowsill of purgatory."
(9/20/05) - According to TV Guide Online, Katey Sagal is the latest actor tapped to guest-star on Lost's upcoming second season. She will play a woman named Helen in the new season's third episode airing Oct. 5. The episode will also feature another appearance by Locke's father (played by Kevin Tighe).
(8/25/05) - According to Variety, Damon Lindelof, co-creator of Lost, told them that Cynthia Watros (Titus) will play a helpful character on the show. "What's really cool about her character is that she's going to bring a flavor to the show that doesn't exist right now," Lindelof told the trade paper. "She's not as intense as some of the other characters. She's that person you want in the trenches with you who can take lemons and make lemonade."
(8/23/05) - According to Variety, Cynthia Watros (Titus) has joined the regular cast of Lost, playing a newcomer to the island who was a therapist. According to USA Today, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (HBO's Oz) will join the cast of Lost as a new character called Emeka.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Los Angeles writer, Anthony Spinner, has sued ABC and Touchstone Television for allegedly appropriating his 1977 television concept Lost. He filed the suit Aug. 19 in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeking unspecified damages for claims including breach of contract and fraud. ABC declined to comment to the trade paper on the lawsuit.
(8/08/05) - The Lost Chronicles : The Official Companion Book ($18.95 SRP or $12.89 at Amazon), will be 176 pages long and ships on September 28th from Hyperion Books. It is described as "filled with a detailed episode guide and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show, the fully illustrated book offers plot twists and backstories that will help fans uncover the mysteries of Lost. Also included are reflections and anecdotes from cast members, writers, and executive producer/creator J. J. Abram that readers won't find anywhere else." It also "comes with an exclusive hour-long DVD containing unaired scenes from the show".
(7/19/05) - Damon Lindelof, co-creator and executive producer of Lost, told SCI FI Wire that the next season will offer answers, but will raise even more questions. "We're going to blow it up and change everything this year," he said at the Comic-Con International in San Diego. "I mean, I think that our attitude is not to do more of the same. They're going to go into the hatch, and what they find inside is going to change their state of being for quite some time. So we're going to continue to explore the characters as we always have. The show will be the same in the way that we tell the stories. But season two is really about exploring the island along the way, and we just hope that people think what they find is cool."
"We find out what's in the hatch very quickly," Maggie Grace said in a separate interview at the convention. "I can tell you that much. There's also more about Jack's marriage and why Shannon's so screwed up."
Grace added that she would like to see her character continue a romantic relationship with Sayid. "I certainly hope so," Grace said. "There was certainly kind of a great connection. My personal suspicion—and I actually haven't said this to the producers—I think that he was shot mainly so he could be shirtless for the first half of the season. So it's a great device to accomplish that."
Lindelof also gave some hints about a new regular character, played by Michelle Rodriguez. "From the finale we know she was on the plane with them," he said. "She was in the back of the plane. So I think you can read into it what you will, but it would be a fairly safe assumption to assume that she's survived the crash and has been having a very different 45 days than the rest of the people that we've been watching. So it'll be fairly interesting to hook up with her and see what's happened."
Will there be more previously undiscovered survivors on the island? "It's certainly possible," Lindelof says. "Absolutely. The tail section ripped off, though, and seemed pretty apocryphal. So I wouldn't count on as many survivors as we have on our side of the island."
(6/13/05) - At the first official Lost convention in Burbank over the weekend, secrets were revealed by cast & crew. The LA Times did an in-depth article on what was said: (WARNING - MAJOR SPOILERS)
When one audience member shouted, "Don't kill Sawyer." Executive producer Damon Lindelof replied, "We won't. But he did get shot, which means his shirt will be off in a future episode." Lindelof added, "And he'll be wet" (due to Sawyer's fall into the ocean at the end of season 1).
"The plane did not crash by accident," Lindelof told the audience. "It crashed for a very specific reason." In response to speculation that someone aboard the plane caused the crash, "I will tell you today that is not the case."
Lindelof also promised, "Season 2 is gonna get weird." He and the other writers promised that the mysteries wouldn't drag on as long as The X Files. As for what is in the mysterious hatch, it will be interesting, but not as interesting as the effect it has on John Locke.
Lastely, it was revealed that the rear section of the plane, and additional survivors, will be discovered next season.
(6/06/05) - According to Variety, Michelle Rodriguez will join the cast of Lost in its upcoming second season.
