Hey gang,

If you want to get a picture with me and you ask me while we're in a crowd. HAVE YOUR CAMERA READY. Because odds are that your asking is going to spark other people asking. And suddenly there will be a line and I'll be making a beeline for an exit. If you're stopping me on my way out, that's fine, but you have to be ready for it. Know who is going to take the picture and make sure they're ready. Because it sometimes gets hairy in a crowd and I have to run away. So I can't be held up too long because it's only going to get crazier.

Thanks for your help.


Go see the movie ONCE.

I've gone twice so far. It's incredibly good. Glen Hansard sings with so much passion. And Marketa Irglova charms you the second she shows up on the screen.

I went straight from the theater to the record store to by the soundtrack (luckily I saw it at a mall).

So go. It's the first moivie in a long while that I KNOW I'm buying when it comes to DVD.

Zoos always SOUND like a good idea. You remember them as a kid and they were totally awesome.
What you don't remember about zoos is what hits you as soon as you walk in:
"Oh yeah, the animals crap here!"
You never remember the smell of a poop at the zoo. In fact the only smell you DO remember is the smell of a freshly molded wax Gorilla.

Big Buck Hunter

I love Big Buck Hunter Pro and all games of it's kind. Now I would NEVER shoot an animal in any real-life situation. But when I first played this game earlier this year I had so much fun that I would seek it out in any arcade I found myself in. (Also the game where your supposed to put ping pong balls painted to look like bees into a hive or basket, but that's a whole 'nother blog.)

I had no idea that it was such a huge game with the rest of the population. I wouldn't have thought twice about playing this game if my brother in law hadn't given me my first "fix." But I should have guessed.

It's that Emerson quote, "To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men-that is genius."

...And be specific

Forgot this part.

You have to be specific.

If you're writing you want a house:
How big? Where? Does it have a pool? What shape is it in?

Again just make a choice.

When I said I wanted to be part of a good ensemble show in my head I was thinking something like Cheers.
LOST is nothing like Cheers. But it still fits the category. And as an actor the stuff I've gotten to do as Hurley way surpasses the stuff I could have done as a Norm-type. Right?

I wonder if thinking Cheers when I wrote that had anything to do with me booking Becker and working with Ted?

Write it down

If you want ANYTHING. Write it down.

It doesn't matter if it's something you want in your career, your relationships, your way of life. Write it down.

A lot of friends spend too much time trying to get it right before they write it down.

Screw that! Write it down. In pencil if you want.

Tomorrow you can throw that paper away and write something new down.

I was going threw old "career notebooks" and I found three separate statements:

-I want to be a part of a good ensemble television show.

-I want to book a job on location.

-I want a house in Hawaii.

So write it down. Don't sweat it. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting it out. Once you do that you are already on your way.

Good luck.

First Day of School

Today felt like the first day of school.

I had my new over-the-shoulder book bag. Still with the tags on it.

I even packed myself a "lunch."

I get nervous the first day back. I feel like I'm "rusty."

But it went alright.

So what else do you want to talk about?

Maybe I'll do a non-LOST related blog.

Dogs assume everything is food first.

I know this because I've seen my dog trying to eat a rock.

Maybe that's why they lick you.

Never mind.

People are scared. Word has gotten back that I started this blog and I got a phone call telling me to be careful about letting anything out that may give something away about the first episode. They know anything I write will be scrutinized by the people interested enough to read it. So...

It might be too risky to do this blog.

We don't air until we've almost finished all principle photography.

It's going to be hard enough keeping that stuff secret without a daily outlet.

And I don't want to make my bosses angry even though I know I wouldn't let anything out of the bag.

But if they're sweating about this, then it's not worth it.

Sorry but I'm pulling the plug.

Three days. That's all it took.

Script is awesome.

Sorry. Can't say anything else.

Working Friday

A script is on the way to my house. Just found out I'm working Friday. The official first day is next Wednesday, but apparently it's an aggressive day so we figured we might want to knock out one little bit this Friday. By "we" I mean them. It's not like I had a meeting with everyone and we agreed to this. This is the bosses saying, "So you're working Friday." But it's good I'm anxious to start season four. Heard some things that sound very exciting.

Wardrobe fitting today

Today is a my wardrobe fitting for LOST. I don't have a script yet. But apparently I do have clothes.

I actually asked an executive producer what happens in this first episode so that I know what we're talking about when we're going through the clothes.

Okay. To be honest I signed up for this just so that I could leave a comment on Dark UFO. But... who knows it might be a fun thing to try to create a "LOST Diary"

P.S. Don't look for me to do anything to prove who I am. Read at your own risk. I could care less if you think it's really me or not.
Hell I don't even know if I'm really going to do this.
