Today we got news for you on a former Deadwood actor whose getting Lost this season; the gang at 24 are wondering if their eighth day will be their last; Syfy will be re-opening the doors to Warehouse 13 next season; Heroes has a new poster; Apollo plays in the Dollhouse; Star Wars will soon be on TV; and ABC gets room at Clive Barker's Hotel.
All that, and we bid farewell to a TV News Legend (see above). Let's get to it:
Lost will be adding a new cast member to its sixth and final season. Deadwood's John Hawkes (he played Jewish entrepreneur Sol Star) will join the Lost crew as Lennon, a "“Scruffy, edgy, charismatic, and slightly stir-crazy...spokesperson/translator for the president of a foreign corporation. He’s a wily negotiator, and far more powerful than his lowly position would seem to indicate.”
Hmmm... Could he be working for the nefarious Charles Widmore? Or perhaps the mysterious Hanso Corporation?
Guess we'll find out for (semi-)sure when Lost returns next year.
Apparently, the 24 cast and crew are preparing Jack Bauer's next day out to POSSIBLY be his last. In the event that Fox chooses to ax the show after its eighth season, the producers are filming several alternate season-enders that will either tie off the saga of Jack Bauer for good, or leave room for the show to live to fight another day.
Said producer Evan Katz: "We’re flexible. We have a scenario that would work well if the show ends. But we also have scenarios where it could go on.”
Hmmm... when DOES Jack Bauer start to overstay his welcome? If this upcoming season is as good as the last one, maybe it would be a good idea to go out on a high note. Judging from his nervous behavior at the Comic-Con 24 panel, star Kiefer Sutherland may be ready to move on...
24 returns in January.
Syfy's Summer series Warehouse 13 has been something of a hit: after debuting in July to 3.5 million viewers, the cable series has managed to steadily however around the 3.7 million viewers mark every week.
Those strong numbers have made it a no-brainer for Syfy to order an additional 13 episodes of the show; Warehouse 13 season two will premiere next summer.
Sorry W13 fans, I know that's a long time to wait - but you got to give the rest of us time to catch up / catch on!
