Five Possible Roles For The Two New Lost Cast Members

According to, Lost has added two more cast members for the upcoming season -- Saïd Taghmaoui, who will play "Caesar", and Zuleikha Robinson, who will play "Ilana". Executive producer Damon Lindelof wouldn't comment specifically about their roles, but he did mention that the characters would play "an important part of the setup for the final act of the show in season 6."

Ilana and Caesar

Because we're a bunch of shameless whores when it comes to Lost, we're not going to sit idly by without wildly speculating about how these two characters are going to factor into the show's eventual conclusion. Here are five possible roles for the two new cast members that would tie up a few of the show's thousand loose ends:

1. Caesar and Ilana are Polar Bears

Polar Bears

Caesar and Ilana come out of their polar bear suits and reveal themselves as secret agents working for Charles Widmore. Desmond proclaims "Wait -- so you're unstuck in time too?" Caesar says "Yup, you got it." Abrupt cut to Lost titler.

2. Jack and Kate were really Caesar and Ilana the whole time

Mission Impossible Masks

Jack and Kate each dramatically remove their masks and Mission Impossible-style voice-changing thingies, and reveal that they were these other people the whole time. They both agree this is surprising. Abrupt cut to Lost titler.

3. Caesar and Ilana are Olde Timey Hunters looking for the Smoke Monster

Olde Timey Hunters

Caesar cries "By Jove, there it is!" and nails the smoke monster with buckshot. The smoke monster falls to the ground, dead. Ben says directly into the camera "I guess we'll never know what it was or where it came from." He stares into the camera silently for ten more seconds. Cut to Lost titler.

4. The Deus Ex Machina ending

Deus Ex Machina ending

Caesar and Ilana are Gods who descend from the sky on wires suspended from a wooden scaffold, explain each character's human faults, then snap their fingers and everyone ends up back on the mainland, each having learned a valuable lesson about morality. Except Sawyer. Slow fade into Lost titler.

5. It Was All A Dream

All A Dream

Ceasar just fell asleep with his island-themed sleep mask on, wakes up, explains the story to his girlfriend Ilana, she says "a lot of that doesn't make any sense," he replies, "I know -- weird, right?" and they both have breakfast and get on with the rest of their lives. The show moves to CBS and becomes a wacky comedy about the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Miles Straume guest stars as the wacky neighbor.

Haha, great pics and specualtions! X-D

My Ex Machina ending would be; Ceasar brings Yves(Robinson) and the Lone Gunman to the island to uncover all the DI secrets and save the day. And heck, Mulder and Scully show up too (since they didn't do much in the new movie).
