Michael Emerson to former 'Lost' co-star Terry O'Quinn: I won't quit you, either!

Our ongoing lobbying coverage of a potential John Locke/Benjamin Linus TV reunion continues! Last week, Terry O’Quinn (now guest-starring on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 with ex-Oceanic 815er Daniel Dae Kim) told EW he still wants to work with fellow Lost co-star Michael Emerson (now on CBS’ Person of Interest), even though plans for a J.J. Abrams-produced action-drama vehicle fell apart earlier this year. Said O’Quinn: “I was actually looking to do a series after Lost. … Michael and I fiddled around with one and we sort of got through the process of generating some interest in it, and we just didn’t come up with a script that everyone agreed on. Michael and I stay in touch; we still talk about that. Maybe we’ll make it happen before we get too creaky. I would love to have at least one more good experience like Lost.”

“I feel very much the same way,” Emerson tells EW.com. “I was very gratified to read that in the press. We’ve both told each other that even though there may be some bumps along the road, sooner or later, we’re going to work together.” For fans of Emerson’s new show with Jim Caviezel (and there could be a lot of them: Person of Interest launched last week to 13.2 million viewers), the actor has some scoop about tonight’s episode (airing at 9/8 c): READ FULL STORY

Terry O'Quinn: I won't quit you, Michael Emerson!

Lost fans, don’t give up on Terry O’Quinn ever working again with Michael Emerson. In preparation for his multi-episode arc on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, EW asked the 59-year-old actor to reflect on his past roles — including an NBC drama from J.J. Abrams’ company that O’Quinn was supposed to make with his former Lost co-star Emerson. It was a light drama called Odd Jobs from writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec and would have starred O’Quinn and Emerson as former black-ops agents.

“I was actually looking to do a series after Lost,” O’Quinn told EW. “Michael and I fiddled around with one and we sort of got through the process of generating some interest in it, and we just didn’t come up with a script that everyone agreed on. Michael and I stay in touch; we still talk about that. Maybe we’ll make it happen before we get too creaky. I would love to have at least one more good experience like Lost.”

Hmm, maybe in the short-term, he should just shoot for a reunion on CBS: The premiere of Abrams’ new thriller Person of Interest that stars Emerson earned a pretty solid number (13.2 million, 3.1 rating). But keep the faith, Locke!

Another 'Lost' actor joins 'Hawaii Five-0' -- EXCLUSIVE

Lost actors and Hawaii — they have to go back! Now another familiar face from the ABC hit is coming ashore to CBS’ Hawaii Five-0.

Tania Raymonde is guest starring on the series in the upcoming season (she played Alex Rousseau; looks different all glammed out in the photo, huh?). Raymonde plays Trisha, a married woman caught up in a love triangle between her husband and the volleyball coach she’s sleeping with. Meredith Monroe will guest star in the same episode as a star player on the volleyball team. Raymonde will have plenty of familiar company on the set — former Lost-co-star Daniel Dae Kim if of course a regular, and Terry O’Quinn has joined the show for season 2.

Comic-Con 2011: Doc and Dan get totally 'Lost' with Damon and Carlton

Lost might have ended one year ago, but not all’s, well, lost. Not only did EW team-up with Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof for Comic-Con’s Lost: One Year Later panel, but the duo stopped by EW’s VIP lounge to talk about the dearly departed series and the “deleted” scene they premiered during the panel. As for their Twitter feud? Says Lindelof, “We do loathe each other, but the Twitter feud was a joke.” Click the jump to hear Lindelof and Cuse talk with EW’s Dan Snierson and Doc Jensen about their Comic-Con experience, whether they’ll be back from more Lost-centered panels in the future, and what we can expect from a Lost: Turn Off the Island musical.

See a 'deleted' 'Lost' scene that Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse revealed at EW's 'Totally Lost' Comic-Con panel!!

A funny thing happened on the way to Room 5AB at Comic-Con this afternoon. Or rather, in Room 5AB. During EW’s Totally Lost: One Year Later panel, Lost exec producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse crashed the festivities in fitting Comic-Con style. (Cuse dressed as a stormtrooper; Lindelof was clad in a Dharma jumpsuit and Boba Fett helmet). Not only did they field all sorts of questions from fans, they unveiled a scene from the season 1 finale that supposedly never aired. Yes, the very one hinted at during their cryptic Twitterfeud,” which was resolved at the panel. READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con reaction: What fans had to say about J.J. Abrams' new series 'Alcatraz'

Could J.J. Abrams have another hit on his hands? Or is his new series Alcatraz, debuting this fall on Fox, an all-too-familiar tune?

The audience members flowing out of the last night’s Comic-Con screening in San Diego seemed largely to agree that Abrams’ stamp was all over this new mystery (duh) series, which stars Sarah Jones (Sons of Anarchy), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), and Lost alum Jorge Garcia. But the twist-filled, time-jumping hour proved to be a lot for some to take in. Here are some of the reactions EW got at the exit door:

Chris Brewer, Sacramento, Calif. — “It was really cool. I really like J.J. Abrams and it felt like one of his. It’s a cool idea and I think they can do a lot with it. It had that Lost feel to it — there were a lot of questions. It’s a little bit supernatural, but also grounded. I like the Alcatraz [prison] setting.” READ FULL STORY

Damon Lindelof to moderate MTV's 'Death Valley' panel at Comic-Con

Looking for another place to find co-creator Damon Lindelof at Comic-Con? Check out MTV’s Death Valley panel on Friday. EW has learned that the Lost co-creator has signed on to moderate the festivities for the half-hour comedic horror series about an Undead Task Force that battles vampires, zombies, and werewolves. (Wes Craven was initially slated to host, but had to drop out.) “I have long fantasized about what would happen if the cast of Jersey Shore were to be attacked by zombies,” Lindelof tells EW. “However, once those zombies inevitably realized their hunger for brains would not be satisfied, they would be forced to move on to someplace decidedly more awesome.  That place is Death Valley.  When they asked me to moderate, how could I resist?  Horror/comedy is a slippery slope, and I for one can’t wait to see this show go down it.” Lindelof, who is writing the screenplay for the sci-fi thriller Prometheus, will also play moderator at panels for 20th Century Fox (Prometheus’ studio) on Thursday and the ABC fantasy drama Once Upon A Time on Saturday. Death Valley debuts Aug. 29 on MTV.

Catching up with the ‘Lost’ cast

First look at ABC's new 'Once Upon a Time' trailer. Charming?

Snow White. Prince Charming. Rumpelstiltskin. What if they weren’t just characters inhabiting the well-worn pages of a children’s fairy tale book, but had been ripped out of the Enchanted Forest by the Evil Queen and sent to present-day, small-town Maine, where they were living as ordinary folks, sadly unaware of their real identities? Hey, it could happen! And it totally does in Once Upon a Time, an ambitious fantasy family drama debuting on ABC in October. In this new trailer, the Queen (Lana Parrilla) wedding-crashes the nuptials of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Joshua Dallas), vowing darkly: “I shall destroy your happiness if it’s the last thing I do!” (If only Trina Decker were still around to slip something in her drink to mellow her out.) You will also meet a rather chilling Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle), who foretells of eternity-suffering doom-’n’- gloom unless Snow White and Prince Charming’s daughter, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), can somehow save the day, which probably should involve getting ‘Stilt a spa day.

Is your interest piqued yet? Take note of the five words that attack the screen toward the end of the trailer, one-by-one: FROM. THE. WRITERS. OF. LOST. READ FULL STORY

'Lost' vet to help produce Fox's 'Alcatraz'

As if Alcatraz didn’t have enough of a Lost pedigree, the Fox show has tapped Jack Bender to join the show as executive producer and director. Bender directed many of the biggest episodes of Lost — 36 of them, according to IMDb, including the finale. He rejoins former Lost producers J.J. Abrams, Elizabeth Sarnoff and Bryan Burk on the show which, as you recall, co-stars Jorge Garcia (a.k.a. Hurley). But can the show reproduce the success of the ABC hit? The pilot — about former inmates who disappeared 50 years ago coming back into modern day San Francisco and committing crimes — feels closer to the first episode of Fringe than that other island adventure.

InsideTV Podcast: 'I don't think [Bentley's] mother would like him, either,' says EW.com's new Nanny

Press play on the little triangle below to listen to the podcast. “It’s a woman-on-woman crime — and in this case, both of the women are Ashley.” Thanks to InsideTV Podcaster Kristen Baldwin for so succinctly summing up The Bachelorette franchise!

With Dalton Ross on vacation, yours truly bravely stepped in to control the stupid sound effect machine on his desk…a.k.a. host an all-new InsideTV Podcast. This one’s a doozy! First, Kristen Baldwin, Darren Franich and I get off-track by concluding — quite astutely — that dentists should just never date anyone. Then, we call new EW.com correspondent Nanny (pictured, inset) to get her hilarious thoughts on losers like the Masked Marvel (Jeff) and despicable reality TV villain Bentley (pictured). After that, Kate Ward and Breia Brissey (famed granddaughter of Nanny) join me for probably the girliest So You Think You Can Dance segment the InsideTV Podcast has ever seen. We answer one of life’s eternal questions: “Tyce Diorio or Tasty Hydrox?” What a relief!

Finally, Jeff “Doc” Jensen, truly the Doubting Thomas in the Caravaggio canvas that is EW.com, calls in from L.A. to discuss his final two ‘Lost’ columns and apologize — AGAIN — for the year-long wait. Do stick around until the bitter end, when this spectral shell of a man abruptly hangs up on me and Darren to go call Steven Spielberg!

Ready to go down this digital-audio rabbit hole? Press play on the little triangle below. Or, since we’re on iTunes, you can subscribe for free and take the podcast with you on the go. No iTunes? No problem. You can also download the entire podcast right here. And to send a question to the InsideTV Podcast team, follow us on Twitter @InsideTVPodcast.

'Community': Guest star Josh Holloway and creator Dan Harmon on the paintball season finale

Slap on some goggles and peer out cautiously from behind the corner: It’s almost time for Paintball: The Sequel! A year after Community’s splendid splatterfest “Modern Warfare,” the NBC comedy aims to outdo itself with a two-part season finale (airing May 5 and 12). The first half, titled “A Fist Full of Paintballs,” features a special guest star, Lost’s Josh Holloway, who plays a “mysterious, serious” paintball player named Black Rider. Holloway and series creator Dan Harmon spoke with EW about the big game. READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' author slams 'Lost': Damon Lindelof gives EW his response

Ohhhh, it’s on.

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin says in the recent edition of The New Yorker that he doesn’t want the ending of his epic Song of Ice and Fire series to conclude like Lost. Below we have the public war of words, followed by an exclusive Q&A with Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof about Martin’s comments (he was actually reading Game of Thrones when all this went down!) and a look back at his feelings about the Lost ending.

First, here’s Martin in the profile: “We watched [Lost] every week trying to figure it out, and as it got deeper and deeper I kept saying, ‘They better have something good in mind for the end. This better pay off here.’ And then I felt so cheated when we got to the conclusion.” Martin also cites the Lost ending as the type of mistake he fears making with his own show, saying, “I want to give them something terrific. What if I f— it up at the end? What if I do a Lost? Then they’ll come after me with pitchforks and torches.”

Well, Lindelof had something to say about that. Quite a few things. And they were rather hilarious as well. READ FULL STORY
