PaleyFest in Los Angeles will be hosting a cast reunion for the 10th Anniversary of LOST on Sunday, March 16, 2014. (That’s the 10th anniversary from the year the show started — it hasn’t been that long since it finished — though it has been almost four years, which is hard to believe — time flies.)
Scheduled to appear: Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin), Yunjin Kim (Sun), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Emilie de Ravin (Claire), Ian Somerhalder (Boone), Nestor Carbonell (Alpert), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), Malcolm David Kelley (Waaaaaaaaaalt), executive producer Carlton Cuse, and more.
Carlton talked about the show in an interview posted yesterday on Vulture. He’s still defensive about fan criticism of the ending. “We did the version that we wanted to,” he said. “Damon and I still stand by it. There was no answering-a-million-questions version of the end that wouldn’t have been didactic and awful.”
Whatever your opinion of the ending, the reunion should be an exciting event. For those of us unable to make it to L.A., there were hopefully be video posted on YouTube after the event is over.
Naveen Andrews (Sayid on LOST) will be playing a villain on the new TV show Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, which is a spin-off of the show Once Upon a Time, now entering its third season.
Once Upon a Time has many ties with LOST. Naveen is the last in a long line of LOST alumni to appear on a Once show. LOST actors in the cast of the original Once are Emilie de Ravin (Claire on LOST, now playing a major role in Once as Belle), Jorge Garcia (Hurley on LOST, has an occasional guest role as a giant on Once), Lana Parrilla (has a starring role in Once as Regina, the Evil Queen / had a guest role in LOST playing an Other named Greta in two Season 3 episodes — she was one of the two women who tied up Charlie in the underwater Looking Glass station), and Alan Dale (Charles Widmore on LOST, has a recurring guest role as King George on Once).
In addition, the creators of Once and Once:Wonderland were writers on LOST, and Once often tosses in LOST references to amuse people who are fans of both shows. I wonder if Once:Wonderland will do the same.
This is going to be the first time that Naveen will have a role on U.S. television in a television show produced in the United States since he played Sayid. His character on Once:Wonderland will be Jafar, the villain in Disney’s Alladin, and he’ll be appearing on Wonderland from the first episode, which airs on Thursday, October 10 at 8 p.m.
Terry O’Quinn (John Locke) is coming back to TV soon in a regular series role in the new show 666 Park Avenue, which debuts on Sunday, September 30, 2102 at 10 PM (same night as the Season 2 premiere of Once Upon a Time, which starts at 8).
It’s about a creepy New York City apartment building. Terry plays the owner of the building — and, from the promo, he appears to be the devil. It reminds me of Rosemary’s Baby, but it looks less scary. It could be fun.
Last seen on Hawaii Five-0, Terry O’Quinn will be guest starring starting this Sunday on Falling Skies on the basic cable network TNT.
I’ve never seen the show, but it’s produced by Steven Spielberg, and according to the show’s official site, it’s set “in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated.”
Terry will be appearing on two consecutive Sundays: August 12 and August 19, 2012 (which is the season finale) at 9:00 PM ET.
He plays Arthur Manchester, a former history professor who is a mentor to Tom Mason, the show’s main character.

A lot has happened in Matthew Fox’s life in the last month.
Fox got very, very lucky. First, the assault case — filed against him by a female bus driver who said Fox repeatedly punched her when she wouldn’t let him on her private party bus — was dropped. According to EW.com, the bus driver’s lawyer said his client “‘intentionally failed and refused to provide full and timely cooperation and information,’ and … failed to honor an agreement to pay his out-of-pocket expenses.”
Fox got lucky again when he found out he won’t have to serve any jail time for his DUI arrest, though he will probably have to go to alcohol rehab.
Fox’s luck ran out a bit when fellow LOST cast mate Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) tweeted that Fox “beats women.not isolated incidents.often.” Fox said he hadn’t spoken to Monaghan in years and found the comments “baffling.”
According to various news sources, including TMZ, Matthew Fox was arrested in Oregon in the wee hours of the morning on Friday (May 4, 2012) for DUI. He was released later that day. He has go to court in June.
