FLED FROM A mysterious island and its inhabitants, the Others
HOW THEY DID IT Seven castaways made their way onto the helicopter from the freighter (a.k.a. ”Not Penny’s Boat!”) in season 4′s finale, but when it got too heavy, Sawyer (Josh Holloway) sacrifices his freedom for the rest of the gang (sigh!). But we’d bet our biggest box of Apollo Bars that they’ll all be back soon enough….

At the Towelhead premiere, we also spoke with the fab Maria Bello (more on her latuh), as well as Lost’s Michael Emerson, who’s married to Towelhead’s Carrie Preston. Dude plays the deliciously devilish Ben on the hit show, but, of course, you know that. Don’t you think he’s easily one of the best babes (we use the term liberally, natch) on the sandy nighttime soap, which is about to start back up shortly? Here’s what M.E. had to say:
Her name isn’t exactly a household one, but something tells me that’s all about to change.
In what reps the first major piece of casting for Lost‘s fifth season, sources confirm to me exclusively that Zuleikha Robinson has been tapped to play the pivotal role of Ilana.
Couple things: Before you ask, it’s pronounced Zoo-Lika. And she’s done stuff. Some high-profile stuff. Like Fox’s short-lived New Amsterdam, where she played Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s partner in crime. Prior to
that, the London-born actress slaved away as Gaia on HBO’s Rome and, in her first big break, had a regular gig on another ill-fated Fox drama, the X-Files spin-off The Lone Gunmen.
Robinson’s Lost deal calls for her to start off as a recurring player with an option to become a series regular in season 6 (a.k.a. the farewell season).
As I first reported last month, Ilana is described as a European female who possesses great
intelligence but who’s also dangerous as all get out. She’s alluring and apparently used to getting her own way.
At the time, EW’s Doc Jensen mused that Ilana “sounds exactly like the kind of lethal lady Sayid would fall for. So I’m wondering if the dashing Iraqi is due for a new love interest, yet another lady whose
true motivations will be in question.”
Team Darlton’s not commenting on Doc’s theory, or Robinson’s casting for that matter (this radio-silence thing is going to be the death of me!), so I guess we’ll just have to wait until the new season kicks off in (ugh) five long months to see if he’s right. In the meantime, go ahead and weigh in on Lost‘s first big season 5 casting and, while you’re at it, feel free to toss out your own Ilana theories.
While we’re waiting for another season of Lost — and we still have a really long wait — G4 is replaying the series starting Sept. 15.
“Lost 2.0″ will showcase every episode from the beginning and include commentary, on-screen facts and other enhancements. If you’ve forgotten some of Sawyer’s reading material or a few of those long-gone characters (Shannon and Boone are such distant memories, aren’t they?), then now might be the perfect time to refresh your memory.
Check the official site for a trailer and updates.
Update: Note that the Sci Fi Channel will begin airing Lost reruns Sept. 15 as well, starting with a four-episode block at 7 p.m. ET.
New additions to Space this fall include Lost, Ghost Hunters International, Rabbit Fall and Flash Gordon.
