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 .
The end of "Lost" is numbered by days and a preview from the series finale has been released. "The end is a statement that can be both thrilling and bittersweet," the narrator says, adding that Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley and Locke will be there for the finale farewell. In order to tie all loose ends, creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have made a deal with ABC to extend it to two and a half hours instead of the original two hours. The finale is thus a five-and-a-half-hour event on May 23, beginning at 7 P.M. with "Lost: The Final Journey" and ending at 1 A.M. with "Jimmy Kimmel Live!: Aloha to Lost". The cast of "Lost" made a special farewell video to mark the end of the series. The footage was played during ABC's upfront presentation at NYC's Lincoln Center on Tuesday, May 18. E! reported Matthew Fox said, "I couldn't have imagined it ending in such a beautiful way," while Evangeline Lilly said, "I came here as one person. I leave as another. I will be eternally grateful." One useful hint to figure out how the finale will go comes from Lilly who said, the series will end with the "six people who took you on this journey." Source & Preview
The Jack Shephard Farewell Tour continued last night on Late Night, one evening after revealing to David Letterman that the Lost series finale would not pull a Newhart it-was-all-a-dream stunt. It began rather awkwardly, with Fallon congratulating Fox on his Saturday Night Live episode - from four years ago - and then asking the actor about his childhood growing up on a Wyoming ranch. It felt like an uncomfortable first date, with Fallon paying rapt attention as Fox talked about his Economics degree from Columbia. To Read More Click Here .

As usual the footage offers no clue about the May 23 episode but Evangeline Lilly does say the show will conclude with six people who take viewers on the journey in the first place. Read more.
Wondering how to fuel your imagination once Lost ends? Luckily, the show leaves behind a long and wonderful reading list. Lost's writers (and avid readers) have used books to build and subvert expectations, introduce the island's mysteries, and define characters. Sawyer's love of reading was our first tip-off that he had the intellect for long cons. The show feels designed with readers in mind: The more you read, the better your odds of catching its many winks and allusions. Here are just 13 books that have been crucial to Lost: To Read More Click Here .
Given all the time Lost has spent lately on Jacob (Mark Pellegrino) and the Man in Black (Terry O'Quinn), you might think they're the key to the show or something. They're not. "It would be mis-categorizing to think this is the epitome of what Lost is," executive producer Damon Lindelof tells TVGuide.com. "Obviously the island was there before these babies were born, and lots of things were going on before they came there. What those stories are isn't relevant to the story we told, which is the crash of Oceanic 815 and what the ultimate fates of the survivors are." To Read More Click Here .
I just realized it now: we only have three and a half hours of Lost left. Ever. Tonight the series' penultimate episode airs, and after what transpired in "Across the Sea," it seems that more things will make sense. Consider the promos for the episode: all those reflection scenes in the flash-sideways! Also consider the name of tonight's episode: "What They Died For." It seems that we will get happy endings for the dead, much like what many of us thought when Sun and Jin died a few weeks back--that their romance will continue in the alternate timeline with a marriage in the United States and a baby on the way. But will it be a happy ending for everyone? It could be for Sawyer and Kate, who are being brought together by fate over there. It could be for Sayid, who, last we heard, was arrested for killing Keamy and Omar. It surely is for Hurley, who finally went on a date with Libby, and for Desmond, who integrates the timelines when he meets Penny. To Read More Click Here .
On last nightâs Late Show, Matthew Fox - shiny suit and boots! - swung by to talk about the fever pitch of anticipation around the showâs finale. As David Letterman insisted last week to Evangeline Lilly - âa lovely young woman,â the host said obliviously, âwhoâs always on the show all the timeâ - the only ending heâll accept is a dream sequence. âThe only way this show will make any sense is if someone goes âWake up, wake up,ââ he told Fox. âAnd you go âoh, oh, weâre landing in Cincinnati.â I will accept nothing other than that.â Fox did give us one spoiler: Cincinnati will play no part in the series finale.
