According to The Hollywood Reporter, veteran actor and alumni of Deadwood, one of the greatest TV shows of the last decade, and Eastbound and Down, one of the funniest, will be joining the cast of Lost for its final season as a recurring character. Hawkes will play a character called Lennon on the show but according to the trade, the producers of Lost won’t reveal any other information about him.
However, that didn’t stop THR from digging a bit deeper. According to the casting breakdown that went out for the role, Lennon is a “scruffy, edgy and charismatic spokesperson and translator for the president of a foreign corporation who is far more powerful than it seems from his position.”
Well, that does sound interesting and not at all vague. Can you detect my slight sarcasm there? But really, I’m just joking because in our quest to bring you news and information, we sometimes forget that we’re fans of these shows as well so its always a battle between needing to know and wanting to know.
Lost was particularly good this past season so maybe we should just leave it alone and trust them to do the right thing with Hawkes and the last season of the show. Sure, let’s go with that. . . for now.
Lost returns to ABC for its final season in early 2010.
