With all the hype surrounding the "Lost" series finale on Sunday, May 23, we've rounded up the auditions of all your favorite Losties. Some of them are auditioning for the roles they eventually got, but some of them are definitely not auditioning for the roles we've come to love them as. We already knew that Matthew Fox originally auditioned for Sawyer, but did you also know Yunjin Kim read for the part of Kate, Dominic Monaghan read for Sawyer and Michael Emerson read for Hurley?

Lost star Evangeline Lilly has found love on the set of the desert island drama once more - she has fallen for a production assistant on the hit TV show. Production on the final series wrapped earlier this year and the stars are preparing to leave Hawaii, where the show was filmed, for good. However, Lilly will have her own personal memento to take home with her - 28-year-old production worker Norman Kali. A source tells the National Enquirer, "Lost certainly has been very good for Evie's love life." To Read More Click Here .
Jimmy Kimmelâs late-night obsesh with Lost just doesnât stop. Last night, the comedian had Josh Holloway, aka Sawyer, from ABCâs trippy, soon-to-end drama stop by, and the always charming actor - gasp! - wouldnât even reveal the end of the series. Whatâs with that? The cutie-pie did, however, cover a wide range of topics with Kimmel, ranging from how Matthew Fox always knew more about what was going to happen with the show than he did, how he predicted that the island would move, and how the âcage stuffâ from the earlier seasons were some of his favorite scenes. And! He talked about how heâs always mistaken for Kid Rock - and just goes with it. Hehe. Oh, and Jimmy pulls out a clip from the finale, too! Watch Hollowayâs interview, which includes the finale footage, in two parts here: To Read More Click Here .
Did you hear this show called Lost has its series finale Sunday? I know it hasn't been on my calendar since fall or anything. So, while asking a bunch of questions is the fun of Lost and maybe we don't want that all to get wrapped up, being a show so big on its mysteries, it will have to give some big answers in the series finale to be satisfactory to its insanely addicted and loyal fans. Here are my top 10 big questions that I really do need answers to in the finale, or else... Check 'em out and then let me know what you'd add or which is at the top of your list of stuff you've gotta know! 10. Are those who died on the island really dead? Okay, okay, they probably are dead and gone and it's all about the experience of the island for them, but as I'll reiterate a few times in these questions, if the main point of our Oceanic survivors is this candidate situation, I don't feel as if that makes it okay for all those characters to die. The point of the island early on seemed to be to help all these lost souls find their ways in the world and get their second chances, but while some like Charlie got the chance to turn their lives around to a fairly satisfying degree, others like Boone just plain died with nothing else to it. So, if this current island world is the one (if there has to be one?) world that carries on for our survivors, does that default to there being no chance for the dead? 9. What's the history of the island? No seriously. I know the Jacob and the Man in Black days were way back in the day, and Richard arrived quite some time ago as well, but do we want to talk about how that statue with the now infamous foot got there in the first place? They can call the bodies of Jacob's mother and the Man in Black "Adam and Eve" all they want, but unlike Adam and Eve, they weren't the beginning of everything (or so was my impression from ' Across the Sea '), so I want to see the real beginning! Too much to ask for in one (though giant) episode? 8. What does it mean in the entire scheme of things if Charles Widmore is dead? While I find many characters much more interesting and important than Charles Widmore, there's no denying he's an enormously important piece to the entire Lost puzzle. So now that Ben has shot and killed him in current island world, shouldn't that have a huge impact on well, everything? And if so, what will it mean? 7. Does it have to be that either the alternauniverse or the island universe is real/sticks? This question may not even end up mattering, but with its big focus for the finale season, I have to know - was the alternauniverse for all our characters just a peek at what could've/would've been or is there any reality to it? Are they messing with our heads and all of that's really happened, but after their days on the island? If that's true and for some reason their memories of the island were erased, well, then comes my next question... 6. What is the point of Desmond getting everyone in alternauniverse to remember the island? It seemed in ' What They Died For ' that after all the "we have to go back" Oceanic 6 business, that's what Desmond's doing allll over again. Or actually for the first time? Wherever that all falls into the timeline and possible reality vs. what never happened, it still seems Desmond is on a mission to get everyone to remember the island days which somehow really happened to these people... but is it all to change their fates and lives just enough so they can get on track like Desmond getting together with Penny? Does he want everyone to go back to the island... or go in the first place... or does he just need everyone to remember so they can live regular lives, but with the improvements including love they found when on the island or before? 5. Was the only point of all of the Oceanic survivors going to the island to see who was the best candidate? If that's the only point, I find it disappointing. Sure, protecting the island is clearly a big deal which we better find out more about, but I feel as if it's really tragic and pointless for the entire destruction of all the survivors' lives, and so many of their deaths, just to be for Jack to take over, then the rest of them to go separate ways. Sure, none of them were happy before, but killing most of them is not exactly helping them figure out their lives. 4. What has been the point of those like Richard and Danielle getting stuck on the island? If all the Oceanic survivors were meant for candidate selection only, what does that mean for the other people who've spent so much of their lives on the island? It seems we know why Richard never ages, but why didn't he just take over for Jacob? Is there a reason for anyone to be on the island besides getting caught in the drama of the battle between Jacob and the Man in Black? 3. Are/were Desmond, Locke, and Walt special beyond being possible candidates? It seems that Desmond has only been special for the sake of being a default protector of the island... I feel like that's not enough for how interesting he is. And hey, remember how Locke and Walt were kinda magical and seemed to have very special destinies on the island? I would really like it if all those special people would come about as having more intriguing reveals than it all getting wrapped up in a simple candidates bow. 2. Now that Jack has "sacrificed" himself to be the next Jacob, is he the only one who needs to/will stay behind? If reality for the survivors is the current island storyline, now that Jack has taken on the position of protecting the island, are all the rest of them done with their purposes there? Will Jack now never age and be all alone til who knows when like Jacob? If that's the way it goes, shouldn't it be time for the rest of them to leave the island and be released from its hold on them? Is there still a love triangle to be resolved between Jack-Kate-Sawyer, or has that become a non-issue with all the other major things going on? If it does still matter, does that mean Kate could choose to stay forever on the island with Jack or leave with Sawyer? 1. Why is it so important that the island/the cave's yellow light be protected? Yeah, yeah, good vs. evil, important shiny light on a weird island of spirits, mysteries and all that... but really. Why is it so important? It seems if that light in the cave is not protected, the island will be destroyed, but what does that mean for the rest of the world? Is this island what holds the entire world in balance? Does it protect the world, balance it out... anything at all? I feel as if anything like that is true, this finale may include quite the groaner conclusion ( Battlestar Galactica finale, anyone?) but doesn't it have to be something like that after all this rigamarole? Did I cover all the big questions or do you have more that you're hoping to get answers for in the finale?

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Board of Governors on Wednesday made a rule exception that will have a direct impact on the May 23 finale of Lost . Past rules have indicated that extended length episodes can only run for two hours but Lost's finale is scheduled for two and a half hours. The board will now grant eligibility to the drama's series finale episode. Similar exceptions have been made in the past for the series finales of The Wire and The Sopranos. Ã¢â¬ÅWe have a soft spot in our hearts for the final episodes of long-running series,Ã¢â¬Â says John Leverence, the TV Academy's senior vice president of awards. The Lost finale can be submitted for consideration under any number of scenarios. A Lost star may use it to compete in one of the acting categories, while ABC Studios may use it to go after the best drama prize. Source Here

After six roller coaster seasons, the hit television series Lost is coming to an end on May 23rd. Whether all the questions get answered or not, one thing is for certain - the phenomenon will be a part of television history that is always remembered. Actors Nestor Carbonell and Henry Ian Cusick, two of the show's stars, recently did press to talk about the very highly anticipated finale. Even though no spoilers could be given, they did reflect on what it's like, now that Lost is coming to an end. Check out what they had to say after the jump: To Read More Click Here .
It's no surprise that if there was a character you wanted to play when Lost first started, it would be Sawyer (or Locke). Thirteen audition tapes from the original cast (minus Terry O'Quinn) have landed online and it's fascinating to see Matthew Fox, Jorge Garcia, and Dominic Monaghan all try out for the character. Of course, when you see Josh Holloway's audition, it's hard to imagine that he didn't get the role in the room. One of the most impressive aspects of Lost is that it's been able to maintain the strength of its best characters (or at least my personal favorites). Sawyer, Locke, Ben, and Hurley have been fantastic throughout the run of the series. But watching these tapes, the biggest challenge is in seeing the actors play. To Read More Click Here .
