Which Lost candidate do you think will make it big on the big screen?

So there we have it, after six years and well over 100 episodes, we finally say goodbye to the Island. No more Jack, Sawyer, Locke, Flocke, Kate, not even Hurley with his 101 Star Wars referneces. And while the final episode of Lost may have sparked debate, here comes the real question - what's next for the survivors of oceanic flight 815 and is there Hollywood fame around the corner?



 

 

Of course, some stars are now familar sights on the small screen - Elizabeth Mitchell is the star of "V," for example, while Ian Somerhalder is one of three crucial characters on "The Vampire Diaries."

 

Other cast members are still looking for their next adventure - Josh Holloway and Jorge Garcia - aka Sawyer and Hurley are both waiting to find their next project - and based on Sawyer's sideways flashes, we see Holloway sticking to his detective roots.


Evangeline Lilly, the actress who played fugitive Kate on the series, has gone on the record to say she plans to take a break from acting after Lost however the actress starred in a small role in "The Hurt Locker" and now plans to star in "Real Steel," a futuristic boxing drama starring Hugh Jackman and fellow "Lost" alumnus Kevin Durand. We expect big things.


Matthew Fox has been no stranger to Hollywood fame throughout his Lost career having starred in such blockbusters as Speed Racer and Vantage Point. The actor has long been attached to the comic book adaptation "Billy Smoke," though a full year has elapsed since the latest major update on that project. Well at least he has his loreal commercials...


Meanwhile it seems that Frank Lapidus' - that's Jeff Fahey to his friends, who has landed the biggest Hollywood project. to date   He's part of an all-star cast, including Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba and Robert De Niro, in "Machete," based on a fictional trailer created for Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's "Grindhouse."

    I would say Jorge Garcia strangly enough. Could see him do very well in Judd Apatowesque comedies.

    I think it could be one of the smaller characters like Ben (although I voted for Desmond). The problem with being associated with a high-quality series like Lost, is that people think of the character first when they see you. The same reason has been given as to why none of the actors from The Wire have made the transition from the series to bigger projects, because people just see them as "that guy from The Wire"

    After loosing 6 years of my life to this programme, someone please let me know why I voted here.
    Saying that a very enjoyable show

    Has to be Josh Holloway. For obvious reasons. Lula will back me up on this one!

    Very hard to say. I chose Evangeline lilly in the end cause I actually want to see her in more stuff. I think Fox, Dae Kim and Andrew will also do pretty good. I mean Fox has been in a few things, and Andrews got a part in Planet Terror and all.

    she has said a few times that she might retire from acting when Lost finishes!

    Josh Holloway has the potential for things to go big big big for him. And the obvious reasoning...
    Though I would like Jorge Garcia to get his own show, a Lost spin off perhaps ;) Nah, comedy thing I think would suit him.

    To Lost fans, since I gave up mid season 2, can anyone explain what the black smokey cloud thing was?

    Its gotta be Desmond brotha.

    "My name is Sayid Jarrah, and I am a torturer."
    - Best line.

    I think Dominic Monaghan (Charley) could do well, he's doing the jobbing actor bit (Chuck, flashforward, etc) so building up his reputation, he's unlikely to be head to head with Fox or Holloway for the 201x blockbuster main lead, but I think he could end up in some interesting projects. But I voted for Garcia, 'cause I like his character in Lost ;-)

  • Mr_Twist

    People are forgetting that Yunjin Kim is already a successful movie actress unlike most of the other characters

    Plus you gotta love that Michael Keating was supposed to play jack origionaly !
