Lost might be a long way from finding its way back onto British TV (it’s not even due on American telly for another five months), but it has some new faces to get us all excited. Confirmed newbies for the show’s fourth season include Jeremy Davies (the wimpy soldier in Saving Private Ryan), Ken Leung (the spiky-faced baddie mutant from X-Men: The Last Stand and soon to be seen in The Sopranos), Brit Rebecca Mader (The Devil Wears Prada) and Lance Reddick (Daniels from The Wire and Desmond Mobay from Oz.)
The most hyped new addition is Lawnmower Man actor Jeff Fahey (pictured right). The show’s producers are remaining tight-lipped on his and all the other new recruits parts, but are clearly excited at having the Grindhouse star on board. Carlton Cuse has enthused: ”The Lawnmower Man and The Marshall are personal faves. And he has the most intense eyes of any guy out there, and I say that as a non-gay man.” Fellow producer Damon Lindelof is equally thrilled’: ‘Fahey is one of those actors who feels like he fits into the Lost model: He’s enormously talented and will be vaguely recognizable to some people, but he’ll be able to land on our island without most people going, ‘Oh, I know who that guy is.’ And especially for the part we cast him for, he has exactly the right sensibilities.” Which are? Come on – give us a clue.
