The Lost Cast’s Post
Theoretically, Lost was a career making show. Abrams, who parlayed his infinite geek cred into control of both the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises. He’s essentially double fisting holy grails. Their association with the smash ABC hit (10 years old this week!) has been a boon.
For the actors, it’s been more of a Boone that is, like an airplane full of drugs that fell on their careers and killed them before their time. It’s not that every single person onscreen has vanished from pop culture as if sequestered to some magical desert island surrounded by an impermeable magnetic field. Some of these folks are actually sitting pretty with cushy primetime TV gigs, albeit mostly on shows your grandparents like to watch after
After Lost: Fox hasn’t had many opportunities to bust out his trusty "Jack cry" lately. As we might have guessed from the uniformly mediocre films he starred in while Lost was still on the air Smokin’ Aces, We Are Marshall, Vantage Point, and Speed Racer his filmography since is bleak. He starred as a villain in a Tyler Perry action movie (Alex Cross) and opposite Tommy Lee Jones in some flopped festival bait (Emperor), while his most prestigious role, as a parajumper in Brad Pitt’s zombie epic World War Z, was almost completely written out of the film by Lindelof, no less! He also allegedly punched a female bus driver in the chest and crotch in Cleveland, and was arrested for DUI in Oregon, so maybe he’s mostly been saving the "Jack cry" for real life.
After Lost: Holloway got his post Lost life off to a good start with a minor role in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, but that was the same year he did a Lifetime movie about breast cancer, so let’s call 2011 a wash. He went dark for 2012, then popped up in 2013 alongside Chris Brown (?!) in a 3D dance movie (??!!) called Battle of the Year: The Dream Team, which, yeesh. There were also guest spots on Community and Yo Gabba Gabba!, and mid level gigs in the underwhelming thriller Paranoia and the god awful Schwarzenegger vehicle Sabotage. After all that garbage, Holloway finally found his way to that pasture of post Lost paradise known as CBS primetime, where he now plays some sort of sexy computer man on the exceedingly dumb Intelligence. Sawyer would not have stood for this shit.
After Lost: Fahey, a veteran who’d already been in everything and nothing, started his next chapter strong with a role in Machete. Terror Trap that year. Other not so glamorous gigs included Marriage Retreat, Blacktino, and Dadgum, Texas, topped off by a starring role in Hatfields and McCoys: Bad Blood. He’s better off since as a TV guest star, with appearances on Workaholics, Chuck, Revolution, Hawaii Five 0, and Under the Dome. Next year he’ll appear in Texas Rising, a miniseries about the formation of the non baseball Texas Rangers, with Chad Michael Murray, Brendan Fraser, and Ray Liotta, which sounds more promising than anything Fahey’s done since Machete.
After Lost: Unfortunately, Garcia’s most prominent recent appearance was on the cover of a crappy Weezer album. He hasn’t been dormant, though, logging guest spots on Fringe, Californication, Once Upon a Time, Alcatraz, and the Matthew Perry vehicle Mr. Sunshine. He also starred as Apple co founder Steve Wozniak in the farcical Steve Jobs biopic iSteve; less impressively, he appeared in a little seen Spanish language movie called Maktub and a TV flick called The Ordained. Still, he has got upcoming roles in the comedy Get a Job (with Bryan Cranston, Alison Brie, and Anna Kendrick) and the horror comedy Cooties (with Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, and Jack McBrayer), plus he’s moving from recurring guest to a series regular on Hawaii Five 0 and lending his voice to the cartoon comedy Rock Dog.
After Lost: After bowing out at the end of season three, the former hobbit has carved out a long, strange, occasionally satisfactory career. He starred with Ron Perlman in the grave robber horror comedy I Sell the Dead, played a mutant in X Men Origins: Wolverine, and participated in action comedy stinker Soldiers of Fortune alongside Christian Slater and Ving Rhames. He narrated the TV documentary Devil’s Bible and took a role in the ill fated TV series Flash Forward because they might as well make the Lost rippage more explicit by casting Charlie muh babeh himself. He also portrayed Marshall Mathers in an Eminem video and appeared in some episodes of the highly questionable web series Goodnight Burbank. The sum total of all that would be bunk, but Monaghan’s redeemed himself with guest spots on myriad cult favorite comedy shows from MadTV to Children’s Hospital to The Eric Andre Show, and he seems to be finding his place in the world lately as host of a British outdoor adventure documentary series called Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan.
After Lost: Small roles in an Uma Thurman rom com, an Antonio Banderas action romp, and that TV series with Michael Chiklis that ripped off The Incredibles got Mader off to a weak start. From there, she accepted guest roles on many series, including several really good ones like Fringe, 30 Rock, and Key and Peele, while landing a minor part in Iron Man 3. There was also a season of the Mrs. Doubtfire esque cross dressing series Work It before she finally ended up in the Once Upon a Time franchise like so many other Lost alumni. Joe: Renegades, and voiced the Joker in a pair of straight to video animated Batman movies. Dude didn’t take long to settle into a profitable new gig, though, landing a role opposite Jesus Christ himself on the CBS crime procedural Person of Interest, in which he plays a hyper intelligent (and benevolent) billionaire version of Ben Linus who uses his wealth to stop crimes before they happen, Minority Report style. As CBS procedurals go, it’s not so bad, but a talent like Emerson’s deserves to be turned loose on more challenging material.
After Lost: Akinnuoye Agbaje famously asked to be written off Lost to go back to England and direct a movie about his life story, a work that still has yet to emerge eight years later. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, the Dwayne Johnson vehicle Faster, the Statham/Owen/DeNiro jumble Killer Elite, and Thor: The Dark World. He also did an acclaimed run on the British TV series Hunted, and he’ll be in the Jamie Foxx led Annie remake later this year. Even if that autobiographical epic never comes to pass, he’s building a decent career.
After Lost: He was in The Dark Knight, which would almost be enough to win this competition outright, but that movie came out two years before Lost was over. He does, however, get points for reprising his role as mayor of Gotham in The Dark Knight Rises. Otherwise, guest roles on entertaining programs such as Psych, Wilfred, Person of Interest, and The Good Wife have fit snugly between regular gigs on the Sarah Michelle Gellar series Ringer and former Lost co guru Carlton Cuse’s half decent Bates Motel.
After Lost: After scoring a part in the Oscar winning The Hurt Locker near the end of Lost’s run, Lilly essentially disappeared for a while when the show went off the air. The only thing she had to show for the first three years after Lost was a part in the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots movie Real Steel. But she’s been back with a vengeance lately: First, she starred as the made up elf Tauriel in two cinematic installments of The Hobbit (all elves are made up, but Lilly’s character especially, because she wasn’t in the book). Then she landed an upcoming role in the Marvel franchise Ant Man alongside Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, which has a decent chance of being watchable and will most assuredly lead to more decent work. By Lost alumni standards, Lilly’s killing it.
After Lost: Grace’s career flourished after her departure from the island. After nabbing roles in such middling romantic comedies as Suburban Girl and The Jane Austen Diaries, she starred in three Taken movies. She later scored parts in two Twilight installments and appeared in films alongside talent such as Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Guy Pearce, Aaron Paul, Dwayne Johnson, Adrien Brody, Forest Whitaker, Rashida Jones, Billy Bob Thornton, and David Banner (David Banner David Banner David Banner). Her starring turn in the straight to DVD Malice in Wonderland aside, she’s racked up one of the least embarrassing filmographies of them all.
