Ian Somerhalder, the guy who went from playing the dead Boone on Lost to playing the undead Damon on The Vampire Diaries, has spoken out about his feelings regarding the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Â Apparently the environment ranks pretty high on his list of concerns, but he’s even more concerned about coming across as one of those celebrity douchebags who parades around talking about environmental causes while maintaining a carbon footprint the size of Montana.
Somerhalder told Reuters that he was concerned about crossing the line between being a celebrity and being an activist, but when you look at his history with charity work and green concerns, he appears to be the real deal. Â He’s not just another pretty face talking about a token cause for publicity – he actually seems to be spending time working on projects that mean something to him.
The Lost finale came and went last night and left us sad, sentimental and slightly unsatisfied in its wake. After wringing our hands, crying copiously and screaming at the television for two and a half hours, it was nice to finally get a few laughs with Jimmy Kimmel‘s Lost alternate endings after the finale closed.
The Lost alternate endings video aired as part of the Jimmy Kimmel Aloha to Lost special after the Lost finale. While personally we would have loved to actually have seen real alternate endings to the show to pick and choose from, we still enjoyed the spoofs. Especially since the Lost cast seemed to have a pretty fun time with them too.
Lost may be over and for the most part remain as unexplained and mysterious as ever, but we’ll never forget it as one of our favorite shows of all time.
The Lost finale was originally scheduled as a two hour event, but it looks like ABC thought that just wasn’t enough to close out the epic series! The Lost series finale has now been extended into a two night farewell extravaganza.
ABC originally planned on airing a two hour recap and then a two hour Lost final episode on May 23. Now the network has extended the Lost finale across two nights. In addition, the actual final episode of lost will now run for 2.5 hours.
The original Lost pilot – with info pop-ups – will air on May 22 to kick off the finale of the series. The following night, a 2 hour Lost ‘retrospective’ special will air at 7 PM. The Lost final episode will screen afterwards from 9 PM to 11:30 PM.
That’s not quite the end, however! Following the local news, a Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost special will air at 12:05 AM for those who haven’t collapsed from Lost fatigue. The special will feature Carton Cuse, Damon Lindelof and various Lost cast members.
All we have to say is if they don’t close out Lost to our satisfaction after all these years, we are burning our Lost DVDs in effigy after the final episode!
