Mr. Eko Will Not Be Returning to the Island


Though this final season of Lost has seen the return of pretty much all the key (deceased) players from seasons past (Boone! Charlie! Libby!), there have been a few notable exceptions, including Mr. Eko. And Entertainment Weekly is reporting that actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will not be appearing in the show's final episodes. Though he told EW in August he was "hoping" to return, and producers reportedly were trying to make it happen, a “deal could not be reached in time." Also, curious if we might see Jack’s former wife Sarah (played by current Modern Family star Julie Bowen) again? Well, Lost sources refused to comment on whether or not Bowen will be reappearing before the show expires. Intriguing! [Hollywood Insider/EW]
