Scoop: 'Lost' Finds New Season 5 Blood!

Production on Lost‘s fifth season gets underway in 12 days, so that can only mean one thing: Fresh intel is starting to pour in!

Sources confirm that Team Darlton is looking to introduce two new characters this season – and they’re both as mysterious as they are lethal. They’re also coming in as recurring players with an option to become series regulars in season 6.

First up is Caesar, a dangerous, physical and extremely intelligent male between the ages of 35 and 45. Although his intentions are unclear, this much is certain: He’s as skillful at charming people as he is at killing them. He also has a dark past, but, c’mon, that much was a given.

The other newbie is Ilanna, a European female in her late 20s to early 30s who possesses great intelligence, but who’s also dangerous as all get out. She’s alluring and apparently used to getting her own way.

What does it all mean?! Don’t ask me, ask Jeff Jensen! Better yet, I will:

“Caesar, eh? My mind immediately links to Planet of the Apes. Caesar was the primate that led his fellow apes in a revolt against their human slavers. So… remember when Ben made that cryptic reference last season to an Other that preceded him in leadership? The “Hostile” who ordered the gassing of the Dharma Initiative, a.k.a. “The Purge”? Assuming that dude ain’t Jacob, could he be this “Caesar”? As for Ilanna, she 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.”

Um… my thoughts exactly! Thanks, Jeff!

Casting for both roles is just now getting started, so feel free to use the comments section below to state your case for a particular actor/actress. Woo-hoo! Lost (scoop) is back!

    I’m guessing that one (or maybe both) work for either Widmore or Ben. We know that a war between the two is coming and with the info that these characters might be regulars come s6, that is my guess.

  • minderbinder

    I think Caesar has to be David Anders.

    Get your head right, read more!

    Should I make the obligatory Kristen Bell suggestion now or later?

  • Martin

    Totally drawing a blank, but how about dear ol’ Luke for the role of Caesar, who is “as skillful at charming people as he is at killing them”?

  • Katie

    A dangerous, physical and extremely intelligent male….as skillful at charming people as he is at killing them = an excellent role for Michael Vartan!

  • Laura K.

    Well, I think Locke was the one who ordered the Purge, personally. The comment from Darlton that they would be experimenting with a different storytelling method that couldn’t really be called a flashback made me think time travel. So I’m thinking maybe Locke will travel in time and become an Other.

    Jeff Jensen should know better than to speculate on names put down on a casting call! ;) Team Darlton uses ‘fake’ names when announcing new characters, to throw people off-track as to how they fit into the overall mythology. I do like Jensen’s idea for who “Caesar” might be, though.
    The Shield is ending, right? That could free up Benito Martinez to join the Losties!

  • Dee

    David Anders and Kristin Bell are too young for these respective roles. Plus Kristin will be on Heroes for at least a little while, and that might conflict. I’m thinking Famke Jannsen for Ilanna.

  • Dee

    OK, for Caesar, how about Demian Bichir? His character on Weeds this season is scary. And the fact that he looks similar to Nestor Carbonell could add another element to the show!

  • PennyWidmore

    Lost fans over at DarkUFO are speculating that Ilana could be the codename for a young Danielle

    How cool would that be to have a danielle flashback!

  • step

    Caroline Dhavernas for Ilana.
