It's the highly anticipated, final (sob!) season of one of the best shows ever on television.
And yet, a certain former star apparently does not want to take part.
Sources close to ABC's Lost tell me that although most of the original cast—holler!—will be seen in some capacity for the show's upcoming season, one former Lost castmember has turned down an offer to return to the series.
So who is it?
Well, you know we can't name names in such cases, but suffice it to say that this is a person you'd assume would very much want to return to the series.
According to my moles, offers went out to the original castmembers several weeks ago, and this particular Lost star decided to decline. While some of the other returning Losties have already filmed scenes, this Lost holdout has not been on the set or filmed anything for the series, according to insiders.
Want one more hint? OK, twist my arm…
I can tell you that it's not the hot Damonic bloodsucker also known as Ian Somerhalder, whom we caught up with recently while he was in Hawaii filming for Lost. "Maybe, just maybe we'll get to see a more-relaxed Boone," he teased to us. "Maybe we'll get to see a Boone who's just happy."
