One of the island inhabitants of ABC's Lost has signed on to star in the pilot of the network's revamped V. In the interests of spoilers, we're not saying who until you click through. Spoilers!
Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays Juliet in Lost, has signed on as a guest star in the V pilot, according to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello. While the guest star tag means that this news doesn't necessarily mean that she's leaving the island drama at some point during this season, Ausiello is worried about the fate of Sawyer's latest squeeze:
Are you thinking what I'm thinking — that this confirms Juliet as the major character who gets bumped off at this season's end? Yeah, I kinda thought you might be with me on that one... [H]owever much I may want to chill, that's pretty hard to do, since everyone told me the same thing [about "guest star" status not meaning anything definite] when tailie Cynthia Watros booked a pilot (and two months later, Libby was pushing up daisies).
While I'm hopeful that this news doesn't mean we've seen the last of Juliet, I have to admit that I would love to see Mitchell play a mouse-eating lizard alien queen. If that's wrong, then I don't want to be right.
