More Lost casting

I'm not really here today ... but I just had to weigh in about this!


http://www.eonline.com/News/Items/0,1,19621,00.html?tnews

Elizabeth Mitchell is the new woman in Jack's life? Now HER, I like! ;) Mom in Frequency. Laura Innes's squeeze on ER. Angelina's squeeze in Gia. Tim Allen's squeeze in Santa Clause 2, LOL. I like her a LOT. I can see her with Foxy. This is looking up. So does this mean that the Natasha Henstridge casting was wrong? Or is she showing up in someone's backstory only? Or something? (Also, EM's résumé facilitates a lot of girlslash, doesn't it?)

And hey - since we never got that "Adrift" Sawyer backstory, we never got Jolene Blalock's guest shot. She must be PISSED! Any word whether the cut backstory is on the DVD?

See, I've never even seen her (okay, I've seen bits and pieces of Gia) and she already looks like a better fit then Natasha. I can only hope that she's only going to appear in flashbacks, if at all. 'Cause I really can't see her running around an island. Interesting.

Wow, I feel so much better about this casting, I can't even tell you. If I were making a movie, I'd cast her in it. That's how much I like her!

I just read that too,maybe this Natasha rumor was indeed just a rumor?I'm starting to believe it was.Elizabeth Mitchell-I don't know who she is,but I'm still very much against Jack hookup...

Hey hon! I'm sorry I'm totally missing your day as queen! I just had to take a break from the luau and get some RL stuff done for once! I'll have to make it up to you later!

And I like this actress very much. She's very down to earth, pretty but not shallow and not too young. She just seems very warm and likable. So this gives me some hope!

I'm not worried-you'll catch up;)
She seems nice,I like her way more than Natasha already-though,can't really picture Jack choosing her over Kate.Ahhhhhh,don't mind me,I'm still living in my fairytale land where Jack hooks up with Sawyer and Lost writers don't ruin my OTP with their pretty blond actresses.

;-) I'm filing away requests for future usage. Now I know what everyone likes! *mwah ha ha!*

Well, we've managed to write our own alternate version of Lost this whole time and I guess we'll have to keep doing just that. Let's hope we can enjoy the ride this season. *crosses fingers*

I'm sure we'll enjoy S3-I just know that:)They can't fuck up more than they already did,right?
And if fandom writers were writing LOST-show would be nominated for every award possible,and not just Emmys,Oscar too,lol.

Wow, you are a fan of hers. *smile*

I definitely think she is right for the role..all I can say is, thank god, she can act!!

As long as the character isn't annoying, I'm all for it..with still a partial cringe at the 'hook-up's' thing.

Other than that..I'm fine with it.

Strangely enough, I've seen her in a lot of things and was very impressed with her. ;)
Now we just need the character to be written well! Which ... that's a lot to ask, isn't it, seeing how they've written all the female characters so badly. As long as she's not pregnant and doesn't mope about babies, I think we'll be good!

I have too, and she can act..and more importantly, she's age appropriate..sorry, but I'm also happy it's not someone 22.

Anyway, her is how I see it..either she's someone that he met in Thailand who is now an "Other"

She's just a regular "Other" she shows him kindness..he's pissed at first but Kate has turned on him or lied to him for the last time and he just goes for it because she doesn't want to be an "other" anymore..and let's face it, the male "others" that's kind of slim pickin's.

Or My speculation is correct (I posted that a couple of days ago)..which really is a twist and would be a surprise, but...still..

Or, he's got that syndrome (I believe it's Stockholm Syndrome)where people start to have feelings for their captures.

I'm just not into "hook ups" because it really can take down a show..but either way, I'd love to see Kate have some real competition.

Elizabeth Mitchell? Hurray!
Oooh, that is great news, and you're right, I can totally picture her with Jack. And the girlslash reputation prompts some very interesting speculations :)
So I hope that means Natasha Henstridge is out of the picture; because really, two new blonde women on the show? (Again, what about a redhead!) And nothing against Natasha, she's a decent actor as far as I know, but EM just has more...character. She interesting. And cool. *already has a girlcrush*
So, yay.

Yaay, I'm glad you agree! I've already gone through being upset about Jack having a new love interest (... or have I? LOL) but this casting feels like a step in the right direction at least.

EM definitely has more character. She's not just a pretty face. And I can see her caring about Jack so ... we'll see! (I'm beginning to think she might not be an Other, but another captive. Again, we'll just have to wait and see!)

I like the sound of that. I just watched Frequency last night and was thinking hmmm, where has Elizabeth Mitchell gone?

I've always liked her in everything I've seen her in. But you're right, haven't seen her in anything lately. This casting gives me hope for next season. Seriously!

Oh... I like her. She's closer to Jack's age, for what it's worth. It'll be interesting to see which part she'll end up playing.
halfdutch
Jul. 30th, 2006 04:59 am (UTC)
Yes, definitely. She seems like a good match for him. I think she has to be an Other or another captive, but we'll see!

since we never got that "Adrift" Sawyer backstory, we never got Jolene Blalock's guest shot.

Wait, was she the Star Trek chick that never showed?

Yes! I totally forgot about her until news of these new folks because sometimes it's not clear who's going to show up on the island and who's going to just be in flashbacks. If I had a makeout scene with Josh, I'd want the world to see it as proof! LOL. (Well, OK, maybe not *me* but if I were a working actress, then yes definitely!)

Liz Mitchell I can live with. And she doesn't look like someone just off the catwalk. Hee.

The only thing I've heard about the dvd that involves Sawyer is they made a special clip show by splicing together all of the scenes of Sawyer nicknaming people in S2. They say it is hi-larious.
halfdutch
Jul. 30th, 2006 05:02 am (UTC)
Yes, she's a vast improvement over Natasha Henstridge. (Who I'm beginning to think will be in a flashback or maybe some kind of Dharma scientist. Who knows?)

Oh dear. That's it? DEAR GOD. Do they not realize the gold mine/gift horse they have in Josh?!!! Apparently not!

Apparently. The only one who loves Sawyer is Vincent. :-) But, that's all I've heard. Doesn't mean there's aren't other things that might be included.

I'm a little 'meh' on Jack having a new love interest (since the last one was such a winner! *shoots AL's corpse*), but I actually like Elizabeth Mitchell. Any more lesbian roles to her credit, and she's destined to reach conveted dycon status, ala Gina Gershon *wink*. I thought she was fantastic in Gia, she made me sniffle in Frequency, and I'm a closet whore for Xmas flicks so of course I liked Santa Clause 2 ... plus she makes a seriously hot Mrs. Claus =P Still not sure how I feel about the 'love interest' angle, but time can only tell. God, please don't let this suck ... oh, how I hate summer =(

Oh yeah, I agree I'd rather *not* have a new love interest for Jack because, yes the last one was a fiasco of epic proportions! But if we do have to have some new chick foisted on us, at least having an actress we like is a big plus! And they never know what they're doing -- they brought in AL for Jack and then she ends up with Sawyer! So yeah, nice game plan, guys. Bleah. We shall see.

Anyway, I'm starting to feel a glimmer of hope that they won't fuck up S3 as badly as they did S2.
