If all goes well, LOST Episode 4.10 will go before the cameras next Monday, March 10, and naturally a few spoilers and rumors have begun to seep out ahead of filming.
Bannerman at DarkUFO has snagged some casting calls for the episode:
ISHMAEL BAKIR – Middle
Eastern, 40s, should have a slight natural accent, a high-ranking
businessman who carries himself with a sense of quiet menace. We get
the impression that this distinguished man has the capacity for great
DESK CLERK – African,
female, any age, French-speaking. Cold to some guests, but gracious to
the wealthy. MUST HAVE A BRITISH OR FRENCH ACCENT
DOORMAN – 50s, British, white, distinguished. Uniformed doorman works for a luxury building.
BEDOUINS – Two Arabic men, any age, MUST BE ABLE TO SPEAK ARABIC. Stunts required – Must be able to ride a horse.
There are a lot of rumors that this is a Ben flashback taking place in Tunisia. If that is true, I doubt it is much more than a good guess as the episode is still in pre-production and not many of the people involved at that level care about making us bloggers famous.
If it is in Tunisia, the flash could include more of Charlotte. She was expecting the Dharma collar for a reason, that probably was not the first artifact she’d found. With the ‘compressed’ schedule of 8:5, it stands to reason we are going to see parts of the freighties’ stories that were intended for stand alone flashes to be strategically interwoven with the leads.
