Michael Ausiello of TVGuide.com confirmed two new characters and the actors that will be playing them in Season 4:
Sources confirm that The Wire’s Lance Reddick has been cast in the recurring role of Arthur Stevens, the intimidating corporate-recruiter character I first told you about in last week’s Ask Ausiello. Reddick also had a lengthy arc on HBO’s Oz, where he starred opposite returning Lostie Harold Perrineau.
Ausiello reported earlier this week that former Sopranos actor Ken Leung will also be joining the cast, fulfilling the role of a brilliant mathematician. Leung previously starred in Rush Hour and more recently in X Men: The Last Stand.
The rumor is that Leung will be playing the recurring role of Russell*, a brilliant mathematician who is capable of great insights and has a tremendous knowledge across various scientific fields. He’s expected to first turn up in February’s season premiere.
Oh, new Lost news makes me so ridonkulously happy. We’re hearing that creepmaster Jeremy Davies (Saving Private Ryan) is doing eight eps of Lost this season, and one Rebecca Mader will have a major recurring role as well…perhaps as the much discussed Charlotte?
