Foxy in Cosmo

I assume you guys have seen this new photoshoot by now.
http://community.livejournal.com/foxy_daily/106560.html

That second photo: GUH!

But ... Foxy seems really dismissive of Josh in it. He talks about how he (Foxy) won't talk his shirt off, how he "leaves that to Josh Holloway." Which seems like kind of a snotty thing to say. Especially because he uses his full name. :-/ He also talks about how the cast doesn't hang out as much as they used to, how they're all kind of living their own lives now. I guess that's inevitable, but it makes me sad. They had such a great friendship going, it seems. I don't want to believe those rumors of a feud between them are true but ... (And here's an article where Josh says he'd like to play someone who keeps his shirt on. )

On the other hand, all of them did fly to Mexico for Foxy's 40th birthday.

I don't know. Maybe I'm making too much of this. He might have said that one line about Josh with a laugh. Who knows? I mean, I know Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny weren't close and neither were Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan, but it seemed like the Lost cast really used to be.

There was a recent article that quoted Dom about tension on set, how people are upset because they don't get enough screen time. It may have been simply picking up those quotes from last spring's EW article. Anyway, they really have shafted a lot of cast members. Why even have them on the show if they never use them? And bringing in new people and giving them so much screen time has to be bad for morale.

And did you guys hear that the S3 premiere was down 25% from last year?

I read that yesterday too and had the same thought. :/ But outside of context, I'm reluctant to take any quote at face value, especially when I wasn't present to hear tone of voice or anything like that.

I think it's natural over time for people to grow apart, even when they work together. Is it sad, yeah. But it happens. I don't believe that Josh and Foxy are fighting. I never have. But they're most likely not best friends either.

True, we can't know exactly how he meant that but it struck me the wrong way. Not like an Evi quote or anything, LOL, but still sounded kind of off.

I've noticed in interviews they usually refer to each other by their full name in case people don't know who they're talking about.

He ends the article with, "But I like looking like shit." LOL. I think he's teasing. Josh usually gets the attention for being the hunky one, despite the entire cast being hunky.

Hasn't Foxy been on a separate filming schedule because of the movie promos he has to do? I bet that's why it sounds like they don't hang out as much.

I love, "I do like to party." I want to party with Foxy.

Oh, they do? I didn't know that. That's actually quite reassuring. Thank you!

Foxy has been busy and they don't even have scenes together right now so I can see where they don't get to hang out. It's S2 all over again! :-(

Awww, see, I thought it was cute, cause I figured he was kinda joking about Josh, not snarking on him. Almost like you can trash-talk people you're friends with, but not people you don't like.

It is kind of sad but also inevitable that they don't all hang out. I wonder if they gave up the episode parties altogether after the DUI thing. But I thought them all going to Mexico City for his birthday is cool, and has some RPS potential.

I didn't see the article about people being upset about a lack of screen time, but it doesn't surprise me. There are so many people they underuse, and then they just keep bringing in more. It's sort of ridiculous. At least the people we like are the ones who get the most time, most of the time, right?

I guess we should give Matt the benefit of the doubt there. And yes, the Mexico City birthday party has ENORMOUS RPF potential!

I couldn't find the link to the Dom article anymore. There was also a JJ one where he talked about all the factors that influence the direction of the show. (In other words, they are making it up as they go.)

They're bringing in new people because they have no new tales to tell about the existing ones, unfortunately. That or they're just very fickle themselves and don't understand that we've formed attachments to (most of) the original characters and that's why we still tune in. They had so many potential for storylines for years with what they already had.

It makes me sad that they don't just hang out together anymore. I'm sure morale is low after the various problems of last season, and the lower ratings this year can't be helping. I really hope Foxy wasn't meaning to dis Josh when he said that about the shirtlessness; I hope it was just affectionate teasing. The do seem to still be friends, though. There were a lot of shots of them just goofing off and laughing together during the filming of some of the S3 promos. This doesn't look like a "feud" to me:

And yeah, so, this had to be done. You gave me an icon last week, so I'll return the favor if you want. ;)

Ooh yes! Thank you!!! ;) And yes, you're right, I'm sure they still have fun on set. When they even have scenes together!

Oh, Foxy!!

I did notice that line, the only thing, while I do love the article, while I do love that they all went to Mexico City for his birthday (hell, if I was in that cast, you can make for damn sure I would to..it's MEXICO and a party!), and hell, if I had that view, or any sort of beautiful view, I'd be up that early too..but and I fear that I might piss people off by saying this but..Foxy, okay, we get it, you like to party, we do too--everyone needs to blow off steam, why the hell not, but really we do get it.

Okay, that seemed terrible, but I just had to say it, I'm tired and a little crouchy.

My sister told me about the ratings..I think she read it in the paper.

I bet they had a blast in Mexico. ;)

And I know people who've stopped watching Lost, just don't have time to follow it all or stopped caring.

Sorry you're grouchy!

Beautiful, isn't he? For a happily married family man, the guy oozes sex.

Really, I'm more comfortable having nasty thoughts about him as Jack.

What worries me about that article is that they say he hardly say the rest of the cast during the filming, which I assume means he's going to be with the Others all season?! That idea is just not at all appealing to me. :(

Yeah, I was troubled by his comments about not seeing the rest of them too. "Jack and The Others" is not a show I'm interested in watching. :-/ Maybe he just meant for the first few eps?

I have no idea what's coming up the rest of the season, but I'm kind of guessing they escape during the 6th ep? Or soon thereafter? I'm just not trying to think of what things would be like, post-captivity, taking new canon into account. (Of course, it's much easier if you don't, heh!)

I think that quote is just Foxy!snark. Besides, he mentions partying and tequila consumption! That can't be all bad. :)

I'm not surprised the premiere is down...people lose track and don't want to or don't have time to catch up. I have to co-workers just like that; they wanted to watch the premiere, but either forgot when it was on or didn't remember what was happening in the plot. Eventually I see the audience being whiddled down to the die-hard fans.

You're right, let's focus on the tequila shots in Mexico! That cheers me up. I just hate to think they're all starting to dislike each other. :-/

Well, I know people who've given up on the show. I think last year whittled away a lot of casual viewers because it was so hit and miss.

Well, things don't always print like they're said. You miss out on tone of voice, body language, facial expression. It might not have been meant like it seemed it was meant. Remember Evey's thing with challenging Foxy to a push-up contest and how that sounded?
halfdutch
Oct. 14th, 2006 11:29 pm (UTC)
LOL, but Evi *is* a total brat. Because she comes off just as badly on talk shows where you can see the context and body language, etc.

You're right, though, I'm sure Foxy didn't mean any disrespect by it. I would be very sad if he did.

The ratings things worries me, I can't help it. I don't want TPTB mess with the story even more so they can have a bigger viewing. At the same time, I don't want them to cheapen the production because the series isn't making as much money as it used to. Argh.

As for that quote, I don't know. I kind of make a point out of not reading personal interviews of my favorite actors/musicians/footballers/formula 1 drivers/ballon makers. I'm always afraid they'll say something stupid or something I'll deeply disagree with and will ruin my fun. I'm crap at reading between the lines and fguring out what they were really about.

I just want Lost to be great and everyone to get along.

*hugs her tv show and pouts*

Oh, I want to go out and party, but I'm broke, hence the icon.

I was just having a discussion with someone that the worst thing that happened to Lost was when it became a hit. I think that's why they keep tinkering with it. Eh, who knows? I think the writers just get bored and they don't realize what it is about the original show that made us love it in the first place. Every new thing they throw at us isn't automatically as interesting as they think it is.

And I'm willing to put up with some bad behavior and bad attitudes in stars I like but if they're already ones who aren't talented or they do something really terrible, yeah, it does ruin their appeal.

*sends you money, booze and a certain lovely, dimpled guero*

Mmmm, I'd like to think that Fox was just Joshin' :) Print articles are tough to interpret, like posting on the net! You can't tell what the inflection was, just the printed word.

Yeah, too bad they all don't hang together. But really, in S1 it was a tight unit of 14. They were all fresh and new to the game and just moved themselves to an island! No friends there, etc. From S2 on it's been a revolving door of people coming and going. What is the cast total up to now, 105? j/k Feels like it though. ;)

Which brings me to Dom's quotes. I thought those were old too. But I wouldn't be surprised if there were troubles in paradise. Bound to happen. Alls it takes is someone getting more attention or money or whatever.

Ratings? Not surprised. Lots of people have bailed when they realised that the show did not continue with the story about a group of 14 crash survivors stranded on a spooky mysterious island, cut off from civilization, fighting for survival and with themselves. *shrugs*

You and me and a few million fans. *sighs*

I wish that show still existed. It's like the writers have ADD, they keep adding new bits and throwing in cheap gimmicks like the connections that only undermine the ones they've already built.

I thought they were back on track with the S2 finale, because that was wonderfully action-packed and suspensful. And I liked Desmond's story. But so far this season... it's starting to make S2 look good!
