Crowded Diner

A while ago I noted, after rewatching Mulholland Drive, that it featured Patrick Fischler, who portrayed among other things LaFleur's assistant Phil on Lost.

I just watched the movie again and this time I noticed there's another supporting character from Lost--Mark Pellegrino, who plays Jacob. He's the hit man, whom Naomi Watts meets at a booth in Winkies. In fact, there's a cut from Pellegrino at the booth to Fischler (who was in the booth earlier) watching.

I'm guessing they filmed that scene together, but I don't think Phil and Jacob were ever anywhere near each other. Of course, it's hard to get to see Jacob.

PS I also recently saw a family movie, Frank, which featured Jon Gries and Cynthia Watros. Imaging that couple, Roger and Libby Workman.

PPS Let me note my delight that my favorite cooking show, Dinner: Impossible, just had a new episode where Chef Robert Irvine cooked for the Lost cast and crew.

PPPS Here's some important news:

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed a TV Guide report that August's season six DVD set will include bonus features that address some of those lingering questions, including as much as 20 minutes of “Why does turning the Frozen Donkey Wheel transport you to Tunisia?”-solving material that may or may not be resolved after this Sunday.

So even after the show ends, it's not quite over. (On the other hand, no spinoffs. The Island wouldn't want that.)

“Why does turning the Frozen Donkey Wheel transport you to Tunisia?”

Oddly, I thought this was pretty much answered. We had assumed that the purpose of the wheel was to move the island, and teleporting the turner was the side-effect. But now that we know the MIB's motives for making it, it seems to be the other way around.

Of course, that doesn't answer why Tunisia specifically.... but since Tunisia is on the exact opposite point of the globe from the region where the Island hangs out, it makes sense. Except, of course, that the Island moves (while apparently always staying in the south pacific?) but the exit point in Tunisia does not.
