Lost’s John Locke set to be under Falling Skies?

February 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Falling Skies has managed to secure John Locke, or rather the man who played Locke in Lost, Terry O’Quinn.

O’Quinn was arguably the lynchpin of Lost and was certainly one of the best things about the whole series, from the orange peel smile in the first episode to his cliff-edge fight in the finale. But now Falling Skies, the Steven Spielberg produced alien invasion drama, or as we like to think of it, The Walking Dead with aliens and less gore, has announced he’ll be in the last two episodes of the second season.

Falling Skies never really picked up in the first season we at FTN felt, but the concept was sound so we’re hopeful it has a good second season potential.

As far as O’Quinn’s involvement goes, EW are reporting he’ll appear as a former history professor and mentor to Tom Mason, the lead character in the series played by ER’s Noah Wyle.

We’d like to think that introducing O’Quinn means he’ll be a larger character than simply a retired teacher… but only time will tell.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
