I'm back!

It's going to take me a day or two to get back in the saddle again with the posting (stupid work). But here's a bit of official cast news that's very cool if you haven't seen it:

Lance Reddick, one of the stars of HBO's "The Wire," will get exposure to a significantly wider audience early next year.

Reddick, who plays the tightly wound Baltimore police Col. Cedric Daniels on "The Wire," has landed a role on ABC's "Lost..."

As with a lot of things "Lost," few details are available about Reddick's character. We do know that the coming season of the show, as set up in the third-season finale, will feature both flashbacks to the time before the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 crashed on the island and flash-forwards to after the survivors' return to civilization. That, in turn, makes speculation about Reddick fits in all the more dicey...
Aaaaaaand a photo:

Cool, eh? I've never seen "The Wire," but he looks like he could definitely give Ben or Locke a run for their money.

We should be getting a lot of little "Lost" tidbits the next few weeks since filming will be starting. I can't wait! Woohoo!

It will be interesting to see if he will be an evil corporate type, involved with Widmore or Paik, or maybe a paramilitaristic type in charge of the "rescue"! He looks as if he could handle an intense role.

Definitely intense. Doesn't he look like a less spiritual Eko? I'm very excited about this casting. :)
