‘LOST’ Stars to Reunite on ‘Californication’
It may have been over two years since the end of ‘LOST,’ but if writer Damon Lindelof won’t stop talking about it, why should we? We already knew that former ‘LOST’ star Maggie Grace had nabbed a major role in the upcoming season of Showtime’s David Duchovny dramedy ‘Californication‘ as rock and roll groupie “Faith,” which the potential for her own spin-off, but what former ‘LOST’ cast-mate will be seeing her in another life, brotha?
According to TVLine, former ‘LOST’ star and recent ‘Alcatraz‘ cancellee Jorge Reyes will guest star on an upcoming episode of ‘Californication,’ alongside his fellow island mate Maggie Grace. While Grace has been tapped for a recurring (and potentially starring) role as rock and roll groupie turned muse “Faith,” Reyes will star as “an old contact from Faith’s past.” Hardy har-har.
The pairing was first revealed by Grace herself in a Twitter photo of the the stars on set. For those unfamiliar with ‘LOST’ (and it’s 2012, get on that already), Grace’s character Shannon Rutherford only made it through the second season of the show, but returned for the series finale along with much of the former supporting cast. By contrast, Garcia’s character Hurley lasted the duration of the series.
While Grace’s ‘Californication’ character will appear in nine episodes in the upcoming season, it’s likely that the network will look to spin Faith off into her own series, particularly as ‘Californication’ comes to a likely close.
What say you? Is the idea of a ‘LOST’ reunion enough to get you on board for the sixth season of ‘Californication,’ or was your interest already piqued by having Grace appear on such a sex-heavy show?
