William Mapother Talks 'Another Earth' on 'Access Hollywood Live' (VIDEO)

William Mapother of 'Lost' talks about 'Another Earth' on 'Access Hollywood Live'William Mapother has a knack for finding strange roles in complicated stories. On 'Lost,' he played Dr. Ethan Rom, one of the Others. His latest role in the indie science fiction film 'Another Earth' may be even stranger than that. Mapother talked about the new film Monday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC).

In 'Another Earth,' Mapother plays a composer whose family is killed in a car accident. When the woman responsible for the accident gets out of prison years later, he develops a relationship with her. And, oh yeah, a mirror version of planet Earth has appeared on the skyline, complete with its own population.

So how did Mapother wind up signing on for the project? "The script arrived and they said, you know, we've got a first-time director, an actress who's really very new, and there's almost no money," he said. "Would you be interested?" 'Another Earth' was a hit at Sundance, so it looks like his intuition worked out.
