Survivor Australia winner Tina Wesson has been cast in ABC’s hit drama Lost–that is, if an IMDB listing is to be believed. Tina will appear as a character named Alex Rousseau, according to the listing. Samuel L. Jackson is also listed as a second-season premiere guest star, which might add to the speculation that this is a hose job.
However, Tina may have actually already filmed a scene for Lost that aired. In the finale, someone from the cabin of a boat hurled a molotov cocktail at the raft, and screen captures of that quick moment show a woman who looks just like Tina. An astute poster at Reality TV World’s message boards suggested that it might be Tina late in May; the listing seems to confirm it.
Update: It’s a hose job after all. The New York Post’s Michael Star reports: “An ABC spokesman confirmed that the “Lost” credits for Jackson and Wesson were bogus.” TVtattle.com links to a Google Groups post where someone admits to adding the fake info.
