Daniel Dae Kim, Lost
Does Sun have a bun... in the oven? That is the question fans of ABC's Lost (Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET) have been left to ponder in the wake of the latest promo, which has Jin's honey raiding Sawyer's stash for a pregnancy test. Is our population of castaways going to increase by one? TVGuide.com spoke to Daniel Dae Kim about the prospect of Jin celebrating Father's Day on the island, his 24 encore and more.
TVGuide.com: In this week's episode, "The Whole Truth," what story is Lost telling?Daniel Dae Kim: You're going to see another chapter in Jin and Sun's story that complicates their history. You're also going to see on the island an event that changes their future.
Constance Zimmer, In Justice
Constance Zimmer has played the hippest nun we've ever seen (on Joan of Arcadia) and has held her own when trading caustic barbs with Jeremy Piven on Entourage. So who better to fight the good fight in getting wrongfully incarcerated folk out of the clink on ABC's In Justice (Fridays at 10 pm/ET)? The Queen of Acerbic (our words) postponed her lunch date with a bowl of Peanut Butter Puffins long enough to speak with TVGuide.com about her wide and wild array of roles.

Jorge Garcia, Lost
ABC's Lost (Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET) took another tiny step toward Housewives-like sudsiness last week when Hurley finally (thanks, James!) made his move with Libby. But is the most lovable castaway about to get his big heart broken? In between hosting poker games with his Lost buddies — "Beware of that aggressive Oahu police force!" we warned him — Jorge Garcia phoned TVGuide.com to talk about Hurley's present (and, of course, past) predicaments, his own Web savviness and the "monster" of a pet he has living with him.
TVGuide.com: It's been a while since the season premiere but I have to ask, since you do play Hurley: How satisfied were you with the hatch reveal?Jorge Garcia: I
Cynthia Watros, aka Lost's Libby, appeared in court on Thursday to plead guilty to drunk-driving charges stemming from her Dec. 1 arrest. "I'm sorry," the actress said after entering her plea. Watros was fined $370 — what, the no-fun judge couldn't make it divisible by Hurley's numbers? — had her license suspended for 90 days, and was ordered to undergo 14 hours of counseling. Costar Michelle Rodriguez, also pulled over that day for DUI, stands trial March 30, having pled not guilty.
Lost stars Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arraigned on DUI charges on Thursday, nearly a month after being arrested on the island of Oahu in separate cars. Watros will return to court on Jan. 12 to plead guilty — "She's very remorseful and wants to take responsibility for her actions," says her attorney — while Rodriguez, currently serving a three-year probation term for similar offenses from 2004, faces a Mar. 30 trial date.
Question: What effect, if any, will the Lost arrests have on Michelle Rodriguez's and Cynthia Watros' roles or futures on the show?
Answer: Little if any, I'm told. Apparently, if they get their driving privileges revoked, there's some kind of law that allows convicted DUIers to drive to and from work. So, if you happen to be in Hawaii and see someone who looks like Ana Lucia behind the wheel, pull the frak over and pray for your life.
Lost's Michelle Rodriguez
Lost newcomers Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros, aka "tailies" Ana Lucia and Libby, were arrested and taken into custody on suspicion of driving their respective cars under the influence of alcohol Wednesday night in Oahu, People reports. In 2003 Rodriguez pleaded no contest to three driving-related misdemeanors, for which she served two days in jail, did community service and received treatment in a 30-day alcohol program. Both actresses posted bail Thursday morning; formal charges are expected to be filed on Dec. 29.
Question: A friend of mine noticed that in last week's Destination: Lost clips package, the person steering the boat that took Walt was a woman with blonde hair. Was this scene reshot after Cynthia Watros was cast, or did she always have blonde hair?
Answer: I'm pretty sure the woman at the wheel always had blonde hair. Speaking of Watros, we'll meet her Libby in the Oct. 12 episode titled "Everybody Hates Hugo." Here's an episode description just released by ABC: "Disturbing memories from Hurley's past cause him to struggle with a task he's assigned inside the hatch. Meanwhile Sawyer, Michael and Jin discover the identities of their captors, and Claire uncovers a shocking piece of information about the fate of the raft."
Question: Who's the veteran female actress that was thisclose to signing with Lost that you teased about in Monday's Entertainment News?
Answer: Well, before Cynthia Watros nabbed the plum gig, producers approached Jennifer Jason Leigh to play Libby, the mysterious character who may or may not have been seated across from Michelle Rodriguez in the tail section of Oceanic Flight 815 when it crashed last fall. I'm not sure why the Leigh deal fell apart, but I'm really glad it did. Not only is Watros one of my favorite actresses/people in the biz, but she was the very first person I interviewed as a TV journalist — back in 1997 when she was on Guiding Light and I was gett
Lost cocreator Damon Lindelof is shedding more light on the new character to be played by Cynthia Watros (whose casting was first reported by TVGuide.com). Libby, a therapist, "is going to bring a flavor to the show that doesn't exist right now," he tells Variety. "She's not as intense as some of the other characters. She's that person you want in the trenches with you who can take lemons and make lemonade." Did he just tell us that the hatch leads to a cache of lemons? He did, didn't he?
