After watching him for years on “Lost,” it sounds like we don’t know Jack. Matthew Fox has been accused of assaulting a 29-year-old woman and was detained by cops in Cleveland, Ohio.
According to TMZ, who spoke with the victim, Fox was trying to enter a party bus which he was not a guest of. The victim, Heather Bormann, was driving the bus when she told him that he had to leave and was “trespassing” on the privately rented bus.
A clearly inebriated Fox was said to just be staring at her, mouth wide open as she blocked the entrance. That’s when the 45-year-old star leaned in and started punching her crotch, breast, and stomach area.
But Bormann fought back. She punched him in his mouth in self-defense, causing a cut on his lip. “I took one hand to his jaw and he was spitting blood. He stumbled backwards,” Bormann told TMZ.
Fox was detained by police where he was released. He wasn’t formally arrested but the incident is still under investigation.
Bormann, who suspected that she may have broken her hand following the punch, is planning to meet with prosecutors and plans to press charges.
“Lost” star Terry O’Quinn will be returning to TV with a new project. The Emmy winner has been cast opposite Taraji P. Henson in the Lifetime movie “Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.” The TV movie is based on a true story of Tiffany Rubin and the rescue of her 6-year-old son after he was abducted by his father and taken from his home in New York all the way to Seoul, South Korea. According to eonline.com, in his first role on TV since the ABC hit series ended in May, O’Quinn will play Mark Miller, the head of The American Association for Lost Child, which helped Tiffany (Henson) find her son. Production for the film begins in Vancouver next month. O’Quinn is the third “Lostie” to be cast in a TV project. Daniel Dae Kim has been cast on “Hawaii Five-O” and Nestor Carbonell will be guest starring on “Psych.”
“Lost” Complete DVD Collection Promises Glimpse Into Hurley And Ben’s Island Adventures. For those wondering what happened to Hurley as the new Jacob, there will be a special surprise waiting for you if you buy the final “Lost” DVD collection of all six seasons. Michael Emerson, who played the devious Ben Linus in the show, said Losties haven’t seen it all yet. A little recap on the much-talked about finale of the ABC series: Hurley (Jorge Garcia) assumed the role of the island’s protector after Jack (Matthew Fox) passed the title onto him. Clueless on where to start, Hurley enlisted Ben’s help in running the island, which the former Others’ leader gladly accepted. And after the flash-sideways world was revealed to be the afterlife plane of the castaways, fans have wondered how Hurley and Ben fared after Jack’s death. Emerson gave Losties some good news when he said that they will be given a glimpse into the duo’s island adventures. He told host Kevin Pereira on “Attack of the Show!” “For those people that want to pony up and buy the complete ‘Lost’ series, there is a bonus feature.” “Which is, you could call it an epilogue. A lost scene. It’s a lot; it’s 12 or 14 minutes that opens a window onto that gap of unknown time between Hurley becoming number one and the end of the series.” He added that the added footage doesn’t promise a spin-off, saying, “It’s self-contained. Although, it’s a rich period in the show’s mythology that’s never been explored, so who knows what will come of it.” “Lost: The Complete Collection” will be available August 24.
Matthew Fox, on the LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, CBS. Mo 5/17: Matthew Fox, Zac Brown Band, “American Idol” castoff Michael Lynche, Jason Randal. Matthew Fox, handsome actor with leading-man looks and charisma to spare, one only wonders why it took actor Matthew Fox’s career over a decade to finally set sail with his starring role as natural-born leader Jack on the hit ABC series Lost. Commanding the screen as the brave but conflicted organizer of a group of airplane-crash survivors stranded on a mysterious island, Fox played no small part in bringing compelling drama back to the small screen in a time when reality television seemed to dominate the dial. Of course, Lost wasn’t Fox’s first foray into television drama, having previously established himself as one of five siblings prematurely thrust into adulthood when their parents are killed by a drunk driver in the Golden Globe-winning Party of Five, but it did find him excelling in a manner that could point to a long and fruitful career. Unlike many actors who realize their calling early in life, in the Wyoming native’s early years, it seemed as if an acting career was the absolute farthest thing imaginable in terms of future job prospects. Fox was raised on a ranch that raised horses and barley, and when it came time to choose a college, he opted to study economics at Columbia University — where he also made quite a name for himself on the gridiron. All arrows pointed to a prosperous future career on Wall Street, but when Fox was convinced to try his hand at modeling, the chips seemed to fall into place, and he was soon appearing on television commercials and essaying guest appearances on such popular sitcoms as Wings. In 1992, Fox went back to college for a role in the short-lived TV comedy Freshman Dorm, and though that show itself was decidedly short-lived, it helped his career by leading to roles in the film My Boyfriend’s Back, the made-for-television feature If I Die Before I Wake, and, eventually, Party of Five. After his wining performance in Party of Five making Fox a familiar face to television viewers, it seemed only a matter of time before he stuck out on his own. Following a touching turn opposite Donald Sutherland in the made-for-television drama Behind the Mask, Fox took the role of an ex-policeman-turned-private investigator whose near-death experience bridges a gap to the spirit world in the supernaturally charged series Haunted, which was quickly canceled despite the fact that it was beginning to see a dedicated fan base. If Fox’s career seemed to be floundering somewhat in the wake of Party of Five, that would certainly change when Lost debuted on ABC to impressive ratings in late 2004. With his role as the reluctant leader proving once and for all that Fox had what it took to be a leading man, long-time fans could rest assured that they would likely be seeing much more of him in the future.
