Season 5 – Update On Deaths And Who Is Returning!?

**UPDATED** With a little tidbit about Ben

Nothing major new, but for those that have not kept up to date on all the spoilers and news, here is the update on Michael, Jin and Claire.

Janet in R.I.: Anything new to report on Harold Perrineau’s death on Lost? I was so sad to see him go!

You and me both, babe. But the good news is that Harold is set to star in a dramedey on ABC (he was cast in the pilot The Unusuals), which is music to my ears. If you’ve seen much of H.P. in real life, you know he is (a) hilarious, (b) funny and (a) did I mention the funny? And of course, he can act his ass off. Personally, I never felt like poor, unlikable Mikey-poo did him much justice, so a fresh start where he can flaunt his comedy chops sounds good all around to me. Just my opinion! If you disagree, let mama have it in the comments below…

Mena in Los Angeles: Please, spill the beans! Is there a chance that my darling Jin survived the freighter explosion on Lost?

Jin is gonna be fine. I don’t know exactly how, but he’s going to be fine. I suspect that the difference between Michael’s and Jin’s survival is that Michael was trapped inside the hold, whereas Jin being up on the edge of the deck meant he had a chance to be blown clear of the ship. Besides, the guy magically survived the crash of a 747 and the wreck of the raft. No reason he shouldn’t survive this shipwreck—I choose to believe the Island clearly joins us all in loving him and wanting to keep him around.

Cristina L. in Miami: About the person leaving Lost next season but returning the for season six…You said it’s a girl from the first season, so is Rose included, or do you just mean Kate, Sun and Claire.

Rose would have been included, but as revealed in the Redux’s “What’s to Come” section, Emilie de Ravin will be on a holding contract with Lost for season five and returning in season six. But don’t worry, you can get your Emilie fix elsewhere in the coming year: She’s got a part in the Johnny Depp flick Public Enemies, she’s in the period baseball picture The Perfect Game with Clifton Collins Jr. and last but not least, she’ll be costarring in Ball Don’t Lie with Nick Cannon and Ludacris. Even without Lost, she’s going to be a busy cookie!

Marc in Brooklyn, N.Y.: When Ben was in the funeral parlor in the finale, was that live, real, off-island Ben or dead, spirit-vision Ben?

I had to read the comments of the Redux to figure this out (thank you Nick!), but I think that was the real Ben, because…When he moved the Island, he was teleported (or whatever) to the Tunisian desert, where we find him at the beginning of the circa 2005 flash-forward in “Shape of Things to Come.” When we first see him in that scene, he has a wound that matches the cut on his arm at the end of “No Place Like Home.” Crazy, right? So, to me, it does seem like he’s been genuinely exiled from the Island, and since he leapt forward to 2005 he has been living and working only in the “real world.”

Malcolm David Kelly Interview

Here is an interesting little interview of Malcolm David Kelly who plays Walt. Nothing too shocking or major, but Kelly confirms that he is NOT on call for Season 5. He also says that he knows that something will probably “pop up” and thinks (hopes) that we could see him and father Michael via flashbacks.

Here is the LOST portion of the interview:

Here is an interesting little interview of Malcolm David Kelly who plays Walt Malcolm David Kelly InterviewCrave Online: It was great to see you back on Lost finally.

Malcolm David Kelly: Thank you, appreciate it.

Crave Online: How was it to get back after all this time?

Malcolm David Kelly: It was cool. I mean, just going back and going back to Hawaii and seeing everybody, all my friends and family back there. It was nice and amazing, I love it.

Crave Online: So you had a reunion with the whole cast?

Malcolm David Kelly: Oh yeah, oh yeah. The cast, every time I go out there, we go out and eat. Or every time I’m back in LA when we have a break like this, we’re all hanging out.

Crave Online: Were you in a holding pattern just waiting to find out when they’d have Walt back?

Malcolm David Kelly: Yeah, and working. Whenever they call me and let me know when they want me to come back, I’ll just go out there and shoot and come back home and keep working.

Crave Online: Were you ever worried that so much time was passing?

Malcolm David Kelly: Yeah, I thought they were either going to try to recast me or just kill me off or something like that. I’m grateful that I’m still on there.

Crave Online: Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse told us they’d worked your aging into the story. Did they tell you not to sweat it?

Malcolm David Kelly: No, they didn’t tell me not to sweat it. I’m still sweating a little bit but then when I found out I was my normal age, then it all worked out. Everything should be cool. That meant I should come back.

Crave Online: Now that Lost has been on for a few years, can you appreciate it as a fan?

Malcolm David Kelly: The show is great. There’s still nothing else out there like this show so that’s always amazing for TV and it’s amazing for me.

Crave Online: When you finally got a script with Walt in it, how satisfied were you with where he was at that point?

Malcolm David Kelly: I was glad and especially the age factor like we talked about. I’m glad I got to play my normal age so I wouldn’t have to change my voice like I’ve been trying to do and make it higher in scenes and everything like that. So that’s a pretty cool transition.

Crave Online: How about his adjustment back to home life and his relationship with his father?

Malcolm David Kelly: I thought that was pretty cool but then my dad died on the show so I won’t be seeing him too much anymore, but I’m still going to see him in real life. In flashbacks, hopefully they give us enough where we still get to keep working together so I’m looking forward to it.

Crave Online: Are you on call for the upcoming season?

Malcolm David Kelly: No, not that they’ve told me so far but I know something probably is going to pop up.

Crave Online: Because now we’re bouncing back and forth.

Malcolm David Kelly: Yeah, we can go anywhere they want to with those writers.
