More Lost Actors Added!
Jeff Fahey has been added to the Lost cast, according to EW. This photo on the left is the picture EW provided. Damon Lindelof claims that he was the only guy they had in mind for the role. So... anyone else thinking we're staring at Jacob right now?
Jeremy Davies has also been added. I first saw him in a strange little indie film called Spanking the Monkey, about a guy whose mother is suddenly paralyzed and bedridden, and he takes care of her and over time the roles become confused and he begins a sexual relationship with her. It's a disturbing film to say the least, but he was great in it. He's best known, however, for playing an interpreter in Saving Private Ryan. I can't wait to see how he fits into the cast.
Variety is reporting that Eliza Dushku has signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to star in some show, meaning they've signed the actress before developing the actual project. A pretty big deal indeed. There aren't any details beyond that. Let's hope 20th Century doesn't actually put the show on FOX, or we'll only be able to enjoy two episodes before they cancel it.
For the Heroes fans hotly anticipating tomorrow's DVD release and September 24th's season 2 premiere, check out this new site that's just gone up, the Yamagoto Fellowship. You can see a message from Kaito Nakamura (Hiro's dad), and information about the kensei swords. I first saw this on TVGuide.com where they said you could click on videos and watch the stories that Kaito read to Hiro, but the link doesn't seem to be working quite yet.
SyFyPortal is reporting that Ripper, that show that Joss Whedon has long been saying he's been developing to spin off the character of Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is a go. Well... their headline is confirming it's a go, but if you read the article it's the same old, "BBC is on board, FOX is still in the air" we've been hearing for years. That said, FOX is making more of a commitment than we've ever seen before, at least greenlighting that Joss can go forward, so let's see what he does with the script. Yay, Joss, give us Giles back!!!
