Terry O’Quinn will guest star in two episodes of TNT’s “Falling Skies”

Terry O’Quinn in "Falling Skies"

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.

Watch him in the sneak peek clip below:

Matthew Fox gets lucky, for the most part

Jack, drunk and disheveled, in LOST 3x22 "Through the Looking Glass"

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.”

The Man in Black

Titus Welliver played a key role in the pilot of Touch, a role that was all wrapped up in the show’s numbers.  And, according to an interview he gave several months ago, he will be coming back. 

If you missed the Pilot, you can watch it now on Hulu.

The numbers … the winning lottery ticket … “Touch” gave me LOST deja vu

The Touch pilot was LOST-like in several ways, with its mysteries, its eerie connections between characters, its explicit mention of fate and destiny and, especially, the way it ripped off (or paid homage to) the LOST numbers — not the exact numbers, of course, but the general idea of them. It’s even got a LOST alumnus — Titus Welliver (the Man in Black) in a crucial guest role (hat tip to Geri in the comments for recognizing Welliver). Continue reading

Review of “Alcatraz” premiere (from a LOST fan perspective)

Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) meets Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia) in the first episode of "Alcatraz"

The photography in Alcatraz was beautiful, moody, and dark — but it was Jorge Garcia who brought the most life to the show.

When Jorge played Hurley in LOST, he looked so natural that it seemed he wasn’t even acting. But, of course, he was. Being able to appear that natural in the role was a great gift. He’s brought that same gift to his Alcatraz role of Diego Soto — comic book fan, PhD expert on Alcatraz history, and unlikely recruit in a crime-fighting partnership with girl detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones).

J.J. Abrams says “Alcatraz” is not LOST

Jorge Garcia and J.J. Abrams at the 2012 Television Critics Association

A few days ago, in a talk at the 2012 TCA (Television Critics Association), J.J. Abrams said that Alcatraz would not be like LOST. Alcatraz, he said, would have storylines that were resolved every week, and questions would be answered quickly.

The TV critics in the room had their doubts about that, according to a critic who was there.

Alcatraz starts on Monday, January 16, at 8 p.m. (7 central) on FOX.
