Poor Boone! Looks like he’s still sisterless for the time being.
Despite reports that Lost’s hottest bikini wearer ever Maggie Grace is coming back to the ABC cult fave, I am now told exclusively that Maggie has not yet signed on to return for the final season. A rep for the actress tells me: “It has not been confirmed that [Maggie] is returning [to Lost]. She has been asked, but nothing more than that.”
So does this mean that she is the Lost “holdout” I’ve been teasing for a few weeks?
Confession time: Yes, Maggie was the Lost actor I was referring to when I wrote the blind item about a “holdout” among the original cast who had been offered a return to the series but had not accepted. Reliable inside sources tell me she’s the only original cast member so far who has been asked back to the series and unable to return. She has not shot any new scenes for the final Lost season.
However, according to her rep, Maggie had a very good reason for not making the trek to Hawaii: “She did three movies back to back to back and just got back from filming last Thursday.”
Maggie certainly does have a lot going on these days on the big screen–she’s playing Cameron Diaz’s younger sister in the Tom Cruise flick Knight and Day, Adrien Brody’s love interest in The Experiment, and she was just honored on Thursday by Variety as one of “10 Actors to Watch.”
Still, something tells me I’m not the only fan hoping Maggie can clear some time in her busy schedule to return to Lost island. Or more accurately, I should say to Oceanic Flight 815. And it certainly could happen now that Maggie has finished those three films.
(Psst…That’s your cue to holler in the comments if you feel the same.)
Meanwhile, for those of you who’ve been asking why the awesome new Lost promo shows nothing of the new season: I’m told by insiders that producers have asked that not a single new frame be shown before the series returns. Not a one. Things are that hush-hush. And hopefully, that good.
