Don’t cry for Doctor Jack Shepard, Lost fans. Sure, he’s been captured by hostile Others, bound and gagged and traded away like a Barry Bonds baseball card by Michael. That’s the bad news. The good news is: There’s an excellent chance of hot, transgressive Othersex on the horizon. Elizabeth Mitchell, lately of E.R. and the Santa Clause franchise, is joining the cast of Lost. She’ll play “Juliet,” a possible love interest for Jack. And where is Jack? With The Others. So what is Juliet? The Other woman, baby!
Apart from mating with Tim Allen-in-a-fatsuit (for which she received a Purple Heart and a Congressional Medal of Humiliation), Mitchell’s played a child molester (in Wayne Kramer’s bug-eyed Running Scared) and Angelina Jolie’s lover in Gia. She brings with her a certain… edge.
Jack will have a “dangerous” alternative to the increasingly squishy Kate – one that will split his loyalties. Ah, those crafty Others! Always hitting below the belt! Watch out, Jack! Kitten’s got Clause!
