Scoop: 'Lost' casting a new Sayid!

Oh, don’t get your knickers in a knot! Naveen Andrews isn’t leaving Lost. However, if my hunch is correct, in this season’s 10th episode — a Sayid-centric outing that starts shooting later this week — a new actor will be playing his part.

“Whatchutalkinbout’, Willis?” you say?

Follow along now: A casting call has gone out for the roles of a father and his 12- and 8-year-old sons, all of whom, I’m told, will have to be fluent in Arabic. So wouldn’t a logical assumption be that the hotheaded dad is Sayid’s pop and the older boy, a sensitive type who’s painfully aware that he lets down his formidable paterfamilias, is the future assassin himself?

That’s what I thought, too! The hour promises to be a real crusher, with Dad teaching his elder son the kind of lesson in manhood that I suspect inflicts lifelong emotional scars.

Are you ready for Sayid’s untold story to be told? Or are you afraid that it will be so intense, it’ll qualify as must-wince TV? Comment away below! (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)

    Great. Sayid is my favorite character after Jack and Locke. I agree that this may be a flashback to Sayid’s childhood. Another father-son drama. Long live Sayid

  • Carlos

    Don’t you EVER do that again with a “Lost” story, you idiot! Do it with any other show, not this one.

  • Anne Marie

    Not funny! It took 5 minutes of breathing into a paper bag after reading your blog to calm down. I can’t wait to see more of Sayid’s history!!!

  • Annie

    It’s just so hard to believe that a character on LOST turns out to have daddy issues.

  • Dr. No

    I read that Sayid’s dad will be in a flashback, but also SAYID’S SON………

  • mario

  • Jill

    Is it ok that i had to look up paterfamilias?

  • Rainbow

    Whoever writes the titles for these posts is an idiot. WE GET IT, you like to mislead your readers so they leave cute little comments like “OMG don’t scare me like that!” and “Not funny! It took 5 minutes of breathing into a paper bag after reading your blog to calm down”. Eventually even the lesser-minded readers are going to catch on to the trick you use every.single.time.

    YESSSS – I love Sayid and am looking forward to seeing this episode. The premiere can’t come soon enough.

  • Amy

    Sayid is fine (but enough of Jack, please!)… however, I still want more of BEN . Preferably after the Purge

  • J.S.

    From your headline that’s all I expected… I know LOST too well.

  • Meg

    Oh Sayid, why? Can’t we have at least one character on Lost who DOESN’T have daddy issues?

  • Jack

    Please, for the love of god, bring back Doc Jensen.

  • Michelle

    Awesome! More Sayid the better!

    “Are you afraid it will be so intense, it’ll qualify as must-wince tv?” That honor goes to Mr. Eko’s first flashback, when he sacrificed himself and turned into a warlord to protect his little brother. I still miss Mr. Eko.
