In case you are wondering, or not, this is not the real Damon Lindelof on twitter. Regardless of what the haters say, I’m not so much of an attention whore that I need to say explicitly why I know this is not the real Damon, but suffice to say I would definitely know if it were the real Damon – and no I’m not insinuating I’m drinking buddies with any of the LOST crew or anything like that.
For starters, trying to incite rumors that he is going to cast Hugh Laurie for Dark Tower? Please. Lindelof is far more professional than that. The next bit of ridiculousness is that they are writing episode 14 now. Ahem… they just started writing, at best they are on 3, possibly 4. Of course anybody who follows the press of the show every day would know that doesn’t fit the pattern.
I guess saying I’m a “Fan” with a “Fansite,” while wholly accurate, is another clue as well. Besides being a fan, I have a lot of pro credits as well having written for BuddyTV, Crave, UGO, Seattle PI, and so on. What is curious about this statement is the fact that I have interviewed Damon and Carlton a total of four times, two of those as a one on one, and they even let me on the set during the filming of season 4. Again, we don’t play scrabble at the office every Tuesday, but I’m sure the real Damon knows who I am, even if the fake one doesn’t.
