Daniel Dae Kim will be starring in the reimagined version of Hawaii Five-0
is this week. While there won’t be the kind of LOST panel that we’ve seen in the past, there will be plenty of events featuring LOST actors, writers, and fans.
Here’s the schedule. Twitter will be a good bet for live coverage.
Thursday, July 22, 2010
4:30-5:30 LOST’s composing genius Michael Giacchino will be a member of the panel in Behind the Music with CW3PR: Composing for Sci-Fi, Horror, and Fantasy Film & TV.
Friday, July 23, 2010
10:15-11:15 Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) will be on the panel Aloha, Earth! discussing the remake of Hawaii Five-0. Kim was the first actor cast for the show (he will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly), which also stars Alex O’Loughlin (Moonlight), Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica), and Jean Smart (Martha Logan on 24). The show will start in the fall on CBS.
7:30-8:30 30 Days of Night: Dark Days This panel is for a movie based on a graphic novel, starring Kiele Sanchez, who played the ill-fated Nikki Fernandez (as in, Nikki and Paulo) in LOST’s most hated sub-plot. Wishing her better luck in her new role.

1:00-2:00 The Write Stuff: Creating Genre Television. Among the 11 writers on the panel are two from LOST — Javier Grillo-Marxuach and Jesse Alexander. This looks like a very interesting event. As does the next one:
1:00-2:00 The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack. Here’s the official description: “Father and son team Jay and Jack Glatfelter have one of the oldest and biggest podcasts dedicated to ABC’S Lost. Discuss the stirring series finale, and learn about the huge dedicated online community for TV’s most mind-twisting drama. Join Jay and Jack for this special interview and Q&A session!”
2:30-3:15 V Screening and Q&A with, of course, Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet). V will be coming back in the middle of the fall season.
4:15-5:00 The Vampire Diaries Screening and Q&A with Ian Somerhalder (Boone). Vampire Diaries will be back in the fall.
This one may be the most LOST-centric event of all:
6:00-7:00 Lost But Not Forgotten Official description: “Lost Encyclopedia authors Tara Bennett and Paul Terry, along with other special Lost guests, discuss this seminal show’s legacy, their thoughts on the finale, and the creation of the forthcoming Lost Encyclopedia.”
Sunday, July 25, 2010
11:15-12:15 Cartoon Network: Tower Prep with Firebreather Sneak Paul Dini, the creator of this new live-action mystery show, was a writer and story editor on LOST.
Editing to add: I just noticed that JOpinionated has a list that includes these events I missed: Sterling Beaumon (Young Ben) and Andrea Gabriel (Nadia) signing autographs; a Friday night casual get-together with Jay & Jack; executive producers/writers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis on a panel on Thursday 11:15 to 12:45; Michelle Rodriguez (Ana Lucia) on a panel Thursday 1 to 2; J.J. Abrams on a panel Thursday 3:30 to 4:30; Elizabeth Mitchell on two more panels in addition to the V panel listed above (Friday 4-5 and 6:30-7:30); and Lance Reddick, who played my favorite non-starring character (Matthew Abaddon), in a Fringe panel on Saturday 3:15 to 4:15 .
