As long as we don't call him Focke I don't mind what else it is!  ;D

Where have I seen the guy that played him in the opening scenes before?! 
Deadwood?  He played Silas Adams.

Enough Esau already, I think the Man In Black is Anubis. He's friends with Smokey (Thoth?) and they both judge and play with dead men.
Jacob is Taweret or Sobek, and he has a different view.

Heck, maybe they're both Jewish and Egyptian. Maybe they are the essence of all religions, who knows?

So... the opening scene. Jacob catches a fish. That fish was a herring. And it was RED! Just thought I'd share that lol.

Griz, you are a freaking genius. Awesome observation!!

I like Blackshirt Man or Man #2 instead of Esau. We do know he was wearing a black shirt and was credited as Man #2 (tv.com).  Esau assumes too much, if you ask me. Though talking with some friends tonight about Lost we referred to him as Esau.

EDIT: Looking for source on the Man #2 credit I noticed Lostpedia has an entry for Jacob's enemy.

We don't even have a name for it. But I believe your people call it the monster.

I actually like the name "Jacob's Enemy", or JaCoBseNeMY for short

Apperantly someone said it wasn't a herring... something called a rock fish. Whatever, close enough haha.
