"Lost" Cast Update--What The Actors Will Be Doing Next

Now that "Lost" is over, there has been much speculation about what the cast members will be doing next. Here is the latest information culled from a variety of celebrity gossip sites:

Terry O'Quinn (Locke) and Josh Holloway (Sawyer) will be starring in a new TV series based on the 1977 film "Smokey and the Bandit".

Mark Pellegrino (Jacob) and Jorge Garcia (Hugo) will be starring in a remake of the 1987-1992 series "Jake and the Fatman".

Jeff Fahey (Frank Lapidus) will be seen this fall in a network pilot called "Pilot".

Vincent the dog will be starring as the title character in an upcoming film about an aquatic menace that terrorizes beachgoers in a seaside Long Island town. The film will be called "Paws".

Dominic Monaghan will be seen in a new series that merges his characters from "Lost" and "FlashForward" (in which he played a brilliant physicist/mathematician). It will be called "Charlie's Angles".

Immediately after "Lost" finished filming, Alan Dale (Charles Widmore) accepted the position of CEO of Qantas Airways. His first official act was to decree that any Qantas passenger involved in a plane crash would be required to pay a $200 "aircraft recovery fee". Last week, Dale resigned from Qantas to become the global CEO of BP. He immediately announced that he would be seeking to impose a $250 surcharge on every Louisiana Gulf resident as compensation for all the free oil that BP has left on their shores.

Daniel Dae Kim and Ian Somerhalder will star in a new historical/buddy/comedy series called "Daniel & Boone In Old Kentucky". In early 2011, Daniel will play a young Kim Jong-il in the movie "The Hangover 2: Pyongyang Panty Raid Frat Party". Later that year, Daniel Dae Kim and Daniel Day Lewis will star in a remake of the Arnold Schwarzenegger-Danny DeVito movie "Twins".

Yunjin Kim (Sun) will be seen this fall as Soon-Yi in the Lifetime Movie Network production of "Heart and Seoul: The Many Loves of Woody Allen".

Emilie de Ravin will take over the lead role in the series "Medium". The show will be retitled "Claire Voyant".

Sheila Kelley (Zoe) is continuing to take acting lessons and can currently be seen as an extra on several South American soap operas. In 2011, she will be reprising the role of Zoe in the Latvian musical stage version of "Lost" (the actual Latvian title translates roughly to "The Estonians Have Sabotaged Our Plane!"). She will sing a solo number called "I Want More More Widmore".

Doug Hutchison (Horace) will be introducing episodes of "That 70's Show" on The History Channel later this year.

Ken Leung (Miles) will star in a new series about a man with the unique ability to communicate with people who can communicate with the dead. The show will be called "The Ghost Whisperer Whisperer".

Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond) will soon be seen in a new series playing a man who journeys back and forth through history searching for herbs and spices. The show will be called "The Thyme Traveler".

She will then be seen on an episode of "Judge Judy", trying to plead her charges down to misdemeanor reckless driving. In early 2011, she will be featured in a three-episode arc of MSNBC's "Lockup: Raw--Women In Prison". Twenty months later (or 16 months with good behavior), she will appear on "The Nancy Grace Show" and "Dr. Phil".

Naveen Andrews (Sayid) will be seen playing a terrorist in the next "Die Hard" movie. After that, he will appear as a terrorist in the next "Bourne" movie. In early 2012, he will play a terrorist in the upcoming "24" feature film. Later that year, he will appear as Carrie Bradshaw's new love interest in "Sex and the City 3".

Michael Emerson will star in a new ABC adventure series about a meteorologist who frequently risks his life by flying a weather balloon into strong winds in order to gather data. The show will be called "Henry's Gale".

Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet) will have a co-starring role in the upcoming remake of "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb". She will also continue her role in ABC's "V". Note: If "Henry's Gale" and "V" do poorly in the ratings, ABC will merge them to create a new show called "Henry V".
