SPOILER ALERT! Although “LOST” production has essentially wrapped for the year, cameras are still rolling here and there for mobisodes, pick-ups and reshoots. Last night, my friend Ian reported seeing them setting up downtown. Christmas lights and a New York subway sign were among the props spotted. I wasn’t able to make the trek, but I was sure someone would catch them at work. Sure enough, I got an email from Brian and his friend Joel this morning. (I last crossed paths with Brian downtown last November during shooting for a big Desmond scene, filmed on the same block.) Here’s what they saw:
“They were shooting a bunch of scenes with Harold Perrineau coming out of a NYC apartment building, getting in a green car, reading some folded paper that he pulled out of his pocket, and speeding away in his car down the street.”
A brief scene, to be sure, but it obviously connects to the New York scene they filmed a few blocks away on Nov. 15.
Now, the green Dodge Aspen that Michael was driving last night was also part of that earlier shoot (seen here), where I’d picked up talk of a car crash. I knew the car wasn’t long for this world (thanks to the friend of a Dodge Aspen owner who was contacted by the show), but I didn’t know until now that it was Michael behind the wheel.
