thank kristin for those interresting hint ^^ Wendy in Singapore: Kristin, thank you for all the Comic-Con reporting. Do you have any other Lost stuff? Especially about Kate seeing Sawyer again? Actually, I just heard from a reliable source what the new nonflash story structure is supposed to be for season five, and here's what I can tell you:
1. What my source told me seems to jibe perfectly with everything we've heard straight from the mouths of Damon and Carlton at TCA and Comic-Con 2. It could be incredibly confusing 3. Think about the Jin and Sun episode from last season.
In particular, this new story structure (which we'll discuss more as it gets closer to the new season) seems to ease my biggest fear about season five: separated characters and character groups. So before the secret gets out and everyone starts bitching about the confusing part, I'd like to say thanks, writers, for listening to us fans about wanting to see our faves continue to share adventures. Cheers.
Crashing down any hopes that G4 might turn itself around and work at producing quality video game and tech television, the network spent big money for the rights to air reruns of LOST. The series will begin airing in the fall of 2008, joining other nails in the former tech and video game station's coffin like COPS and Star Trek.
Sci-Fi also picked up the rights to LOST, but at least that makes sense, because we all know the castaways are actually encapsulated in a glass bubble floating through space. G4 plans to redo LOST like they did Star Trek by creating "LOST 2.0," which will offer interactive elements and display factoids during the broadcast. G4 and Sci-Fi allegedly paid $200,000 per episode for the series -- although Sci-Fi footed most of the bill. Although it's sad to see G4 continue down this path toward becoming the poor man's Spike TV, at least we've got GameTrailers making good video game retrospectives.

Lindelof Q to Matthew Fox: How old do you think Richard Alpert is? A: 125 years old. Lindelof: Wrong.

2:08 pm: Damon Lindelof has bad news for the crowd: There will be no Lost spoilers handed out today.
2:26 pm: No spoilers my arse! Cuse hints that "the journey about how those six return to the island" will be a major thrust of Season 5. Adds Lindelof: "You have to break your characters up to create conflict... but you can't play that too long because the audience will get frustrated.... And we have that intensely in mind as we proceed."
2:37 pm: Cuse teases we'll see more of Daniel Dae Kim "in some form" this season despite Jin's apparent death.
************************ Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse, Lost
• Over on Lost (which, did I mention, got an Emmy nod today? wheee!), when asked about how they would manage the split casts next season (with some on the Island and some off), Damon said, "We have that [issue] intensely in mind." He said that they find that separating characters geographically and emotionally is a valuable storyline tool for them, but they're aware that they can only do that for so long before audiences get impatient.
Damon and Carlton also were asked about diversity issues, with an implied reference to Harold Perrineau's speculation about how race might have played a role Michael's death, and Damon said, "The show has to be an equal-opportunity murderer...We've killed a lot of white people. And I can almost guarantee we will be killing more white people this season."
• When pressed on their plan for season five of Lost, Damon said, "This is a tricky year for us. This is like The Two Towers [portion of The Lord of the Rings saga]...it links us to the final season...We've known a lot of what we want to do there [in the final season] for a long time, but the challenge is how do we make this season engaging and exciting. The worst thing we could ever do on the show is for the show to be boring...If we're going to be bad, we're going to be spectacularly bad. kristin at eonline

POP ICON MARIAH CAREY TO PERFORM AT "TEEN CHOICE 2008" MONDAY, AUGUST 4, ON FOX
Sophia Bush, Josh Holloway, Ryan Sheckler and Steve Carell to Appear
Multi-platinum artist Mariah Carey is set to perform her new single "I'll Be Lovin' You Long Time" at TEEN CHOICE 2008. Hosted by Miley Cyrus, TEEN CHOICE celebrates the hottest teen icons in film, television, music, sports and fashion. The coolest stars will receive coveted Teen Choice surfboard awards in categories such as Choice Male Hottie and Choice Hook-Up when TEEN CHOICE 2008 airs Monday, Aug. 4 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Fans ages 13-19 can vote once each day for their favorite TEEN CHOICE 2008 nominees at www.TeenChoiceAwards.com.
Additionally, Sophia Bush, Josh Holloway, Ryan Sheckler and Steve Carell will join previously announced participants Chris Brown, Scarlett Johansson, Zac Efron, Pink, Jaime Pressly, Danica Patrick, Selena Gomez, JoJo, Minka Kelly, Jesse McCartney, Chad Michael Murray, Chace Crawford, Kristen Bell, Drake Bell, Mischa Barton, Brittany Snow and Hayden Panettiere. Additional performers and presenters to be announced.
With her unique talent and signature vocal abilities, Mariah Carey commanded the world's attention when she made her musical debut. Since then, Carey has emerged as one of the most popular and widely acclaimed talents in music. As a singer and songwriter, Carey has been recognized with the most prestigious accolades in the industry including two Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award and the World Music Award for "World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium." As the best-selling female performer of all time, Mariah Carey has continuously raised the bar and set the standard of excellence within the music industry.
Throughout her career, Carey has smashed recording industry records, and she recently reached another historic career achievement. "Touch My Body," the lead single from her album, E=MC, became her 18th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. As a result, she has surpassed one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard history: Elvis Presley's 17 No. 1 singles. "Touch My Body" spent two weeks at the top of the charts and marked Mariah's 78th and 79th cumulative career weeks at No. 1. This tied Elvis' long-standing all-time high of 79 weeks at No. 1 (as calculated in Billboard). Additionally, Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist in the 50 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to surpass the Beatles' all-time high of 20 No. 1 hits.
TEEN CHOICE 2008 is executive-produced by Bob Bain ("Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards") and Michael Burg. Paul Flattery serves as producer, Kelly Brock is co-producer and Greg Sills serves as supervising producer. source http://www.thefutoncritic.com
Meanwhile, for those of you wondering about the casting of Lance Reddick (Lost's Matthew Abbadon) as a series regular on Fringe, J.J. said it's a safe bet he'll reappear on the Island. "When we were casting him, we hesitated because of his Lost character," J.J. admitted. "But then I realized if he goes and does another show, he'll be less likely to do Lost, so let's get him on this one, because I know the producer."

Josh Holloway could be a movie star. There, I said it. The man has ample charisma, he's got the looks, and there's nothing stopping him from being an action star. It would be untrue to say that Lost has launched Holloway's career – Lost is all that there is of his career. Unlike co-star Matthew Fox, Holloway has stayed away from Hollywood during his time on Lost. Reportedly, Holloway even turned down a cameo in X-Men: The Last Stand as fan-favorite Gambit (which, by the way, is a character Holloway is perfect for). So, what's the hold-up? As a fan, you can't blame a television actor for not jumping full-on into the Hollywood machine. The summer hiatus on Lost isn't terribly long, and that very much limits the available roles. It's better to stay at home with your family and wait for the next season of Lost rather than take a crappy movie role. Finally, however, it appears Josh Holloway has found a role to his liking. Holloway has accepted a supporting role in the upcoming comedy “Stay Cool.”
Stay Cool is a comedy about a successful author who has to meet his high school crush face-to-face when he comes back home to give the commencement speech at his alma mater. Josh Holloway will play the jock boyfriend of the author's crush. Mark Polish stars as the author, Winona Ryder will be his unrequited crush, Chevy Chase will try to regain his lost mojo as the high school principal and Hillary Duff will play a flirty high school senior. Jon Cryer is also somehow involved.
The film is classified as “indie” which gives me some hope. If it's Rated R, even better. That cast is intriguing as well. Holloway has shown comic chops time and time again on Lost, and it'll be fun to see him in a full-fledged comedy role. Chevy Chase hasn't done anything of worth for about two decades, so I'm wary of any project he's a part of. Maybe this will be the comeback we've all been waiting for. The “author returns home” is a stock Hollywood story (October Road, anyone?) but when it comes to comedy, it's almost never about story. Execution is the only thing that matters.
Yes i guess many people online remember when ABC asked darlton to do one sawyer's centric at the beginning of the season 2 but they changed for the story and did one with mike anyway, they filmed a little (i dunno if they filmed the entire episode) but look those unseen promo pic for this episode we'll never see :( and also some pics of the set. I think sawyer's fan deserves to see it after the lack of our conman the last season, i wish the next season we'll see more of him...
It’s been a busy week for the guys from Lost. First, Matthew Fox signed on to star in comic book adaptation, Billy Smoke, and now Josh Holloway – who plays Sawyer in the hit show – is stepping his movie career up a notch or two as well.
Holloway – who’s been known to melt female hearts at 1000 paces – has joined the cast of Stay Cool, the new comedy from the Polish Brothers, Mark (who writes, acts and produces) and Michael (who writes, produces and directs).
However, Holloway – perhaps taking a leaf from Fox’s book – is not playing the lead in the movie, which is a comedy about a successful author who is forced to confront his old high school crush – and the jock who is her ex-boyfriend – when he returns to his hometown to deliver an address to graduating seniors.
Instead, Mark Polish will play the author, with Winona Ryder scheduled to play the crush. Holloway will play the jock – which is pretty good casting, and a smart move on his part to take supporting roles in movies, rather than leaping right into a lead that might crash and burn.
But, to be frank, the casting we’re most excited is that of Chevy Chase, who rounds out the cast along with Hilary Duff and Jon Cryer. We’re not sure who Chevy is playing, but after so long in the wilderness, it’ll be good to see the living legend back in front of the camera.
Stay Cool starts shooting this month in Santa Clarita, California.
