Fisher Stevens joins Lost
In the season finale of Lost, we heard the voice of a character named Minkowski on the other end of a radio, and now the character is going to be seen, in the form of Fisher Stevens.
He might be best known to TV audiences as the costar of Kyle Chandler's series Early Edition and his guest stint on the first season of Friends, as Phoebe's boyfriend. No idea yet what the character will be like, but he is described as "recurring."
Back to that episode of Friends he was on. I read a funny essay by Stevens in the book Fired! He talked about that guest spot and how he thought the script wasn't that great and how he felt sorry for the cast for being on a sitcom. Well, things turned out fairly well for the Friends cast, and the producers of the show told his reps that there was no way he'd ever be invited back to the show.
