First, this article and video featuring a “Lost” tour of the island. Also be sure to check out this photo gallery of the island tour.

Next up, check out this article about wrapping up the show. Finally, get your interactive on with this map that features shooting locations around Hawaii.

First here; then here.

MSNBC loves Hugo,

…there’s going to be a scene that takes place in a parking lot. The scene is between two main characters; one of them is Hurley.

That’s the scene Kathy and I were almost in!

When we were out in Hawaii last October we had an opportunity to be extras in that scene. Unfortunately, due to crazy schedules and a departing plane later that evening, we decided to pass on the chance.

But keep your eyes peeled for that scene tonight! The extras driving around in the parking lot, that was supposed to be us!

So… yeah.

I’ve done a few posts like this in the past, where I’m like, “Well, that happened.” And this post about attending the “Lost” panel at San Diego Comic-Con will be no different.

Of course, there’s a lot of info I could share with you about the panel itself, but I’ll let the videos below do that instead. What I will tell you about is the time leading up to the panel.

Kathy and I drove down to San Diego early Saturday morning. Originally, we were going to drive down Friday night, but Kathy ended up working late so we decided to go to Disneyland for margaritas instead. But that’s another story.

We got into San Diego around 9AM and parked at the Ivy, the hotel my sister and Jorge were staying at. We went up to their room, hung out for a bit, and then met the rest of the “Lost” gang down in the lobby to get ready to leave for the convention center.

The plan was this: Three SUVs were going to pick everybody up and take them through the back entrance. Each SUV held seven people or so, so we figured we might have to get split up in some way.

(As a side note, while waiting for the car, Beth saw Scarlett Johansson walk through the lobby. I barely saw her out of the corner of my eye and Kathy didn’t see her at all, so we’ll just have to take Beth’s word for it that it was actually her.)

Waiting in the lobby with us was Michael Emerson (Ben), Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Nestor Carbonell (Richard Alpert), and writers/producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. The day was already shaping up to be pretty cool, but the big surprise, however, would come shortly.

The cars pulled up: Jorge got in the first car with most of the other cast members. The second car filled up with some friends and family. And that left Beth, Kathy and I waiting on the third car with a few publicists.

All of a sudden, Dominic Monaghan comes walking out of the Ivy and gets into the car with us.

Now, Dominic was the big reveal at the end of the panel so very few people knew he was going to be there. This included Kathy, Beth and me. From the car, Beth texted Jorge: “Ah… why is Dom in our car?” Jorge’s response: “Surprise!”

And it definitely was cool having that surprise, especially as someone who sometimes catches wind of such surprises before they happen.

We got to the convention center and were rushed into a green room. While Jorge went over the outline of the panel with the other cast members, Kathy, Beth and I grabbed some free coffee.

There were a bunch of people milling about (I assumed waiting for their own thing to get underway), and it was at this time that I realized that Jimmy Fallon was in the room with us. As was Paul Scheer of “Human Giant,” and Woody Harrelson and Mila Kunis and Jason Bateman. They were just hanging out, grabbing free cold cut sandwiches and drinks. And this proves a theory I’ve had for awhile now: I don’t give a shit how rich and famous you are, you never turn down free food and drink.

After rehearsal wrapped, they rushed everyone back downstairs to the hall. We were quickly ushered from backstage into the seating area and, holy crap, it was insane. Nearly 8,000 people waited in line to get into that hall, some of them camping out overnight.

It was at this moment that I felt extremely fortunate to get into the panel without having to wait in a line.

The lights dimmed, the final “Lost” panel of Comic-Con had begun, and people went absolutely ape shit.

It was truly something to behold, and I’m glad I could be there for it.

So here’s the panel in its entirety. Actually, that’s not true. There were a lot of video clips shown during the panel that can’t legally be posted online, but here’s the most I can show you without getting sued:

Jorge Garcia of "Lost"

here.

He’s the nicest,

-Shady

…is making the rounds on a few shows to promote “Lost.”

Here he is on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” from last week:

And from “The Bonnie Hunt Show” earlier today:

He’s also currently in Spain to promote the launch of Season Five there, and did this bizarre (and slightly awkward) show with puppets:

Jorge also made a stop in Germany last week, and as much as I’d love to post the lederhosen picture I just got in an email, I don’t want to steal the thunder from Jorge’s eventual blog post.

Also, be sure to check out my sister’s blog to see more pictures from the trip, and remember to watch “Lost” tomorrow night on ABC!

Hurley is my favorite Wisconsin city,

-Shady

This season of “Lost” is gonna be extra special!

Of course, my pal Jorge will do a sweet job playing Hurley (as always), but in addition to that, my kid sister Bethany will be appearing as a regular extra this season.

I can’t give any details, but I can say there’s going to be a group of people introduced and that she’s one of them.

So keep your eyes peeled for a petite girl with dark hair wearing a pirate-hookerish, purple meshy… shirt… thingy.
