As one of THE biggest Charlie from LOST fans, and a HUGE fan of Dominic Monaghan, I got VERY excited when I saw a certain ABC promo with him in it. (Those promos of late are FANTASTIC!). Made me hope against hope that somehow, some way, my Charlie was going to be brought back to the island (and with recent news that Emilie De Ravin WILL be a series regular again during the final season of LOST, what a treat that would’ve been!).
However, earlier this evening, Kristin, from E!, informed us all that he’s set to appear in another ABC series this fall, the name of which has not been revealed, due to ABC brass wanting to keep us all in suspense thinking Charlie would be coming back. And honestly ABC bigwigs, that’s just freaking MEAN MEAN MEAN MEAN MEAN. First, you take him from us, then you want us to think he’s coming back and then at the last minute, what, you say “PSYCH!”?!? Whoever thought up that brilliant idea must’ve had fun gluing his/her drunk buddies faces to the carpet in college too.
Take heart though Dom fans, he WILL be appearing as a series regular in another ABC drama come this fall, so we will finally be treated once again to weekly doses of this fine actors skills. Can’t wait to see you on TV again Dom!
