Every so often, it's worth sitting down and giving some thought to one of the greatest narratives in television history: LOST. Although we might always view the cast and crew as islanders, it's still interesting to see what they're up to nowadays.
Co-showrunner Carlton Cuse is working on a new seriesone with the same air of chilling mystery that was attached to LOST, with the added bonus of being based on one of the greatest movies of all time. The Bates Motel, a TV series about the setting and main character featured in Alfred Hitchcock's classic Psycho, is underway. The series will act as a prequel of sorts to the movie, showing the younger days of Norman Bates, and how his mother shaped him to be the killer we see in the film.
The cast has a varied assortment of projects in the works. On film, Matthew Fox (Jack) will be starring in the mystery-thriller Alex Cross, while Evangeline Lilly (Kate) is joining the Tolkien universe as an elf in the developing The Hobbit movies, and Harold Perrineau (Michael) will be taking on Sammy Davis, Jr., in Inferno: the Linda Lovelace Story.
We have also seen a lot of LOST alums returning to television, most notably Ian Somerhalder (Boone), who is one of the central stars of the CW's The Vampire Diaries. Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) and Terry O'Quinn (Locke) have found homes on Fox's police procedural Hawaii Five-0. Michael Emerson (Ben Linus) currently stars in the CBS high-concept crime drama Person of Interest, and fan favorite Jorge Garcia (Hurley) is a lead player on Fox's mystery-thriller Alcatraz. J.J. Abrams, who was a key player behind LOST, is heavily involved with both Person of Interest and Alcatraz.
Additionally, LOST writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis run ABC's fantasy drama Once Upon a Time, which has featured several LOST cast members, most notably Emilie de Ravin (Claire) as Belle of Beauty and the Beast lore, and Alan Dale (Charles Widmore) as Prince Charming's father.
