Lost Bolstering Cast By Two

Lost news!!! Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof are on the hunt for actors to fill the roles of "Caesar" and "Ilanna."

For Lost fans, even the smallest nugget of information is critical. At this year's Comic-Con, showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse spoke a little about the anticipated fifth season, revealing that Russo's backstory would be told, Jin would be around "in some form," and that a new method of storytelling would be incorporated.

It doesn't matter who you add to the cast. Ben will kill them all. All hail Ben!

But one thing that they didn't talk about was new characters. However, it's obvious that some are en route and will play critical roles in the show's intertwining storyline.

Last year, early casting calls gave Losties their first peek at Abaddon (Lance Reddick) and the freighter folk (Jeremy Davies, Rebecca Mader, Ken Leung, and Jeff Fahey). This year is no different.

EW.com reports that the show will introduce two new characters named Caesar and Ilanna next season, both of which (in typical Lost fashion) are "as mysterious as they are lethal." Caesar is said to be between the ages of 35 and 45 and is physical, intelligent, and charming. Ilanna is a European woman in her late 20s or early 30s with some serious smarts.

Unfortunately, that's about all we can extrapolate from the casting call. Post your casting recommendations and hair-brained theories below!
