Do any of you watch American Horror Story?  I love this show too! 
For me Season 2 was the best one so far.  Didn't really care for season 3.  It was OK i guess but...
And the new one will be called FREAK SHOW.   
Can't wait to see what they will come up this time. :)

Doc Encounters Ethan Rom (William Mapother), and Lives to Tell About it!

Posted: 24 Jul 2007 04:45 PM CDT

As Ethan Rom on Lost, William Mapother has had to run the gambit from friendly neighbor who helps out with the plumbing, to Claire stalking mystery man with a goose-bump inducing steely glare.  One of two 'Others' to be embedded as faux survivors at both crash sites,  Ethan faired no better than his counterpart Goodwin when Charlie shot him to death shortly after he was captured.  This hasn't stopped Ethan from returning to show, sans tres creepy behavior, as Lost's most active deceased character.

Like the regulars on Lost, William has to work most of his appearances on the show with little information on the history - or even the future - of the nebulous Mr. Rom.

Through sheer luck, and a helpful friend, I had the opportunity to throw a few questions - including one concerning the long rumored cut Ethan Vs. Locke fight -  at William who was good enough to give us a peek into the anatomy of the mysterious Ethan Rom.

Doc: Ethan Rom has had one of the busiest “afterlives” of any deceased Lost character.  Any indication yet that we will see Ethan in Season Four?

William Mapother: They tell me nothin' (and, of course, even if I knew I'd have to say "They tell me nothin'... ")  I'm hopeful, though, because Ethan's appearance in back stories seems their handy way of showing the Others' presence as well.

When Ethan first shows up in bad guy mode, after Hurley finds out he isn’t on the manifest, he has this absolutely terrifying expression and presence.  Where did you ever learn to pour on the creepy like that?  Was it difficult to find the right ‘cold and evil’ look for Ethan?
I have no clue as to the source of that look.  When I saw it on screen, I creeped myself.  Lighting and story context helped a lot, of course.  As the first non-survivor, Mary Poppins would've had a bit of creep to her.  We shot my expression and performance many different ways, and I couldn't have bet which they'd choose.  They picked Creepy #2, I think.  A fine vintage, apparently.

Did you expect to be brought back after being killed off in Season One?

I had an inkling I would, based on some conversations, but I had no idea how they'd do it.  Making Ethan a surgeon may have been their compensation for killing me so soon.  : )

The casting of Lost seems like an interesting story from everybody’s perspective, how did you wind up being cast?

My agent submitted me, and JJ Abrams knew my work from "In the Bedroom" and told them to offer me the first two episodes.  I received the offer the morning the premiere debuted, and I had to choose between a long-planned vacation with college friends, and two eps of a show I'd never heard of.  I had to choose the work, of course, and my friends showered me with abusive calls and emails.  I arrived into Hawaii the next day, and the show was already a hit.  The abuse was a small price to pay, eh?

One bit of Lost folk lore is the infamous Ethan Vs. Locke fight.  There are pictures from the fight, which were released by ABCMedianet, but the scene was cut from the final episode.  What can you tell us about what went on in that fight?  Did Ethan kick Locke's butt?

I'm always reluctant to discuss cut footage, because the producers' final choices are on the screen.  But because there's a still shot floating around and the scene's known, I'll say a bit.  In the ep, several survivors decide to create a security perimeter around Claire so they can catch Ethan when he comes after her.  In the script, Ethan broke through the perimeter at Locke's point and they fight (I don't recall exactly how Terry and I began fighting, eg, if he jumped me or I him).  He gets out his knife and stabs me in the outer thigh, and then I knock him out and continue up a small rise to surprise Claire.  That part was cut.

When you do see me come from out of the trees, of course I'm limping.  But without the fight with Terry to explain it, the limp makes it appear that the mighty Ethan twisted his ankle on a small root.  :)

I understand the scene was cut only because of time, which is a frequent occurrence on 'Lost' and other hour dramas.  And it's a good example of the limits an actor has over his performance.

Regardless, it was a fun scene to shoot with Terry, and Ethan's injury always gave me a reason why Jack was then able to best Ethan.  : )

Were you told in the beginning that Ethan was going to have this larger presence with the other’s community?

Absolutely not.  I was given vague, cryptic hints about Ethan's background, but I don't recall knowing or hearing much about the Others at all.  I was there for ep #7, I think, and pretty much all the cast was in the dark about a lot of things.

When he first fights Jack, Ethan seems to be almost unstoppable.  Were you directed to act as if you were superhuman?

No.  We choreographed the fight, and that's how it worked out.  Jack got in a few blows, too!

As they began to reveal more about The Others through season two and season three, were you given any background information to work with that has yet to be revealed, or you in the dark like the rest of us?

I learned some more than the audience did.  But from what I understand, the creators and producers gave all the cast only enough to let them perform their roles, then they slammed the iron door on more info.

Michael Emerson has stated when fans meet him they seem intimated, like they are seeing him in character.  Do you ever experience that?

Absolutely.  I'm sorry for Michael, but I'm at least glad it's happening to someone else.  Sometimes people approach me and then back away, and then when I smile, they seem to have difficulty processing the image.  Watching their faces register the change is always fun.

Since season one, Ethan has portrayed as this swell, neighborly guy.  Do you miss playing him as the brooding villain?

I never felt he was a villain.  Ethan had his reasons for behaving as he did, just as Ana Lucia, Kate, and Sawyer all had their reasons for committing murder.  I've played him the same way throughout the show; just the circumstances have changed.  He's a fun character to inhabit.

Do you watch Lost?

Never miss an ep.

What are you up to now, and when can we expect to see you again (outside of Lost)?

A new website for me is underway at williammapother.com, and as for shows I'm on the new Fox's new cop show "K-ville," I just shot an indie thriller called "Hurt," and I'm shooting a horror-western (complete with horse, gun, and hat) called "The Burrowers."

Alot to look forward to!  Thanks for your time William.

Thank You!

ABC's press tour kicked off today and started out with Stephen McPherson saying that some major Lost news was coming... at Comic Con.   Luckily, the reporters pounced on McPherson, calling him a fanboy lover (okay I made that up), until he rescued from the wings by a mystery woman (no word on whether she was in black leather or not) who gave him the okay directly from Carlton and Damon to let loose one nugget of information.  Harold Perrineau is definitely rejoining the cast. 

Of course, that confirmation just opens millions of new questions: Will he be on the island?  In the flash forwards?  Is he a spirit?  Did Naomi's people capture him?  As long as Walt also returns so we don't have to listen to him pine for him incessantly - not a highlight of Harold's otherwise stellar performances - it's all good!

From Buddy TV

Last year LOST was famously snubbed at the Emmys in most of the major dramatic award categories.  Some blamed it on LOST outing itself with more straight sci-fi elements, others noted the unevenness of the season, most, however, blamed a new voting system that seemed to favor newcomers over consistency.   In the blogosphere, the debate raged that LOST’s descent into formula and the mishandling of major reveals validated its omission from the major characters, while stalwart fans were incredulous over the Emmy snub.   With a redeeming third season behind it, many considering it the best season of LOST ever, the fan’s, as well as the creator’s, hopes are galvanized once again. We have some early word on what LOST producers may be submitting for Emmy consideration, and the selection looks diverse, and good.

For the big category, Outstanding Drama Series, producers submit the episode that defined their creation at its apex.  This year LOST producers have selected the third season finale “Through the Looking Glass,” written by LOST show runners Damon lindelof and Carlton Cuse and directed by Executive Producer/LOST Veteran Jack Bender, as the prime example of their achievements this season.

The finale created a stir with its unexpected revelation that at least two characters will get off the island, but that getting off the island is not the end of the story.   In addition, the episode delivered action and adventure on a cinematic scale as the long awaited clash between the 815’rs and “The Others” played out.  Fans also got a better look at yet another mysterious Dharma station, the “Looking Glass” of the title.  Aside from the action, adventure, and mind blowing twists, there were typical moments of LOST ambiguity as we came to question who the good guys ‘really’ were, and caught a glimpse of cast members from seasons past

The question is, will the panel ‘get’ it.  LOST producers have taken assurances to  make sure they will by drawing from as many episodes as possible for their entries into other categories.  While the submission list is not complete, here is what the final list might look like.

Outstanding Drama Series
Lost "Through The Looking Glass"

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series
Evangeline Lilly For "I Do"

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
Matthew Fox For "A Tale Of Two Cities"

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series
Naveen Andrews For "Enter 77"
Daniel Dae Kim For "The Glass Ballerina"
Michael Emerson For "Every Man For Himself"
Henry Ian Cusick For "Flashes Before Your Eyes"
Josh Holloway  For "Every Man For Himself"
Jorge Garcia For "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead"
Dominic Monaghan For "Flashes Before Your Eyes"
Terry O'quinn  For "The Man From Tallahassee"

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series
Emilie De Ravin For "Par Avion"
Yunjin Kim For "The Glass Ballerina"
Elizabeth Mitchell For "One Of Us"

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series
Kevin Tighe For "The Brig"

Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series
Stephen Williams for "Greatest Hits"

Altogether, the list of submissions puts ten of LOST's Season Three episodes before the panel so far, ensuring enough saturation of the ongoing themes of the series for the panel to have a pretty good feel of what made "Through the Looking Glass" such an epic for LOST fans.

The official list of Emmy nominations will be released July 19th.
