If you’re a fan of “Lost,” you’re going to love this news.
We all loved to love Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet on the genre-changing mystery show, and now a new report has come out saying she’ll be reteaming with “Lost” creator J.J. Abrams on one of his many, many upcoming projects. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Mitchell is going to be joining the cast of Abrams’ new NBC show, “Revolution.”
According to EW, Mitchell will be playing “the compassionate and concerned long-absent mother of the show’s two young leads, Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny (Graham Rogers), who set off on a dangerous cross-country journey.” As “Breaking Bad” fans, we feel morally obligated to mention that this show also stars Giancarlo Esposito. It doesn’t sound like there are any supernatural or sci-fi elements at play here, but then again “Lost” started out as a show about a group of people stranded on an island after a plane crash.
Mitchell is just the latest “Lost” alum to reteam with Abrams, and we’re glad he’s keeping them all busy. Josh Holloway got a small albeit memorable role in the Abrams-produced “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” while Jorge Garcia got a leading part on the short-lived “Alcatraz” and Michael Emerson is front and center in “Person of Interest.” We’re still crossing our fingers for some sort of “Lost” spin-off show to happen, but until then we’re just going to have to settle for these.
