"Lost" Finds New Mystery Man

By Marcus ErricoThu Jul 28, 6:43 PM ET

Is he a survivor or an Other?

The Lost legions are taking to the message boards to weigh in on the latest addition to ABC's hit supernatural sci-fi soap opera.

The network has announced that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, a British actor whose Stateside credits include HBO's Oz and the hit films The Mummy Returns and The Bourne Identity, will be playing the role of Emeka, cryptically described as a "mysterious man" who turns up on the island in the first episodes of the new season.

The arrival of Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who will be seen in 50 Cent's big-screen debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin' later this year, could make for a mini-Oz reunion--if, as expected, Harold Perrineau's Michael survived last season's cliffhanger.

When last we left the show, Jack, Locke, Kate and Hurley had blasted opened the mysterious hatch and found...a long, dark passageway. Meanwhile, Michael, Walt, Jin and Sawyer's boat ride was interrupted by the less than neighborly "Others," a group of men who intercepted the raft, kidnapped the seemingly clairvoyant Walt, shot Sawyer and blew up the vessel. Michael was left treading water among the wreckage as Jin dove in to try to save Sawyer.

The new season will also see Michelle Rodriguez join the cast of castaways as a regular. In part one of last season's finale, her character, Ana-Lucia Cortez, was briefly shown in a flashback scene flirting with Matthew Fox's Jack in a Sydney airport bar before the ill-fated Oceanic flight 815 boarded. She and Jack compared seat assignments (Jack was in the middle of the plane, she was in the tail section) before she got a cell phone call and left him hanging.

And back in her recurring flashback-only role as Jack's wife will be Julie Bowen.

Lost was one of last season's biggest hits, averaging nearly 16 million viewers and earning 12 Emmy nominations, including one for Best Drama Series. Last weekend, the series received the prize for Outstanding New Program and Outstanding Drama from the Television Critics Association.

The first season of Lost will be available on DVD on Sept. 6, ahead of the debut of the second season, which will now air in the 9 p.m. slot on Wednesdays beginning Sept. 21.

Terry O' Quinn continues to dominate this show in MO - He's the force behind much that happens.

A bit of a Millenniumistic plot device on the incredible season premiere.

Jack investigates the interior of, what-ever-the-hatch-leads to . an alien ship? a geodesic metal structure that could be a submarine or an underground military base - IDK.

Anyway, during the most intense moments of his searching for the lost Locke and Kate - we are hit with a blast of Mama Cass Elliott singing "Make your own kind of music"

Totally incongruous with the surroundings and totally mind blowing. So like our bud's at MM who stop at nothing to give me heart failure!
