Flash Back with Sonya Walger

Sonya Walger has been popping up everywhere the last few years, and I’ve loved every minute she’s been on the screen. She’s finally moved from supporting to main character in ABC’s new drama, Flash Forward. TVGuide online posted an interview with this amazing actress. Here is part of the interview.

TVGuide.com: All right, when are you returning to Lost?
Sonya Walger: No idea. Not a clue. I don’t even know if I’m in the last season.

TVGuide.com: Do you think Penny should die in the end?
Walger: Are you saying in a sacrificial way, Penny needs to die? I hope not because Penny’s so great. There would be mass outcry, but you know what, they killed off Charlie, so anything can happen. I feel like her dad should be the one to bite it. I am not kidding.

Go on over and check out the entire interview. Sonya is one of the reasons I’m drawn to Flash Forward, and I’m looking forward to rest of the season. Also, I really hope we get closure with Penny on Lost.

Josh Holloway cast in star filled movie

Everyone’s favorite “Lost” tough boy has landed a role in the upcoming movie “Stay Cool”. The Hollywood Reporter has:

Josh Holloway has joined the cast of the Polish brothers’ new comedy, “Stay Cool.” Holloway will co-star with Winona Ryder, Mark Polish, Sean Astin, Chevy Chase, Hilary Duff and Jon Cryer. Holloway will play Wino, the author’s ne’er-do-well high school buddy who encourages him to seek out his long lost high school flame.

This sounds like a great role for Holloway and could really show off his post-Lost talents. He’s mastered the Han Solo-like bad boy, and now has to begin to broaden his persona for once “Lost” ends its run.

I’m not familiar with Mark Polish, but it’ll be interesting to see Josh working with Chevy Chase and Sean Astin. What do you think of Josh’ talent? Will he be typecast as Sawyer?


Expanded Version of Last Weeks “Lost” to Air Next Thursday

According to this weeks Official Lost Podcast, when ABC reruns last weeks episode next week, the press conference at the beginning of the episode will be extended. More questions will be asked, more questions will be answered.

In the podcast they also describe that we’ll understand why the six are the six, and why they are lying about what happened. Who the other 2 survivors who ‘died after the crash’. Also, who put the bomb on the freighter, and why.

From what I’ve gathered, this 3-hour finale will wrap up a lot of things, and provide us with new questions. Next season should show the 6, et al., off the island and the struggles those who left behind face.

What are you looking forward to in this season finale? (no spoilers please as a synopsis of the finale has been leaked)


Tell Me You Love Sonya Walger

sonya-walger.pngThis past fall, a show debuted on Showtime called “Tell Me You Love Me”. It was controversial because of the explicit depiction of sexuality, but my wife and I found it honest and interesting. It was well produced, and amazingly acted. One of the standouts was Carolyn, played by Sonya Walger of “Not Penny’s Boat” fame.
