Benjamin Linus to speak at URI

Obsessed with LOST?

Well, you might have the chance to meet Michael Emerson, the actor who plays Ben Linus on the ABC television series LOST.

Emerson is speaking at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI on Sunday, October 24th at 8:00 PM.  The talk is being promoted as “Behind the scenes of LOST and Mr. Emerson’s Life and Career.” Some sources say he also may apologize for killing Jacob. No promises.

Ticket can be bought online at ticketmaster or on the campus of URI if you find yourself in Kingston during this next week.

Here is a clip of Emerson from the final season, bloodied and bruised as usual.

We have to go back! Lost premieres tonight

Walk into the Ratty, the V-dub, or basically any other place where two or more Brown students are congregated tomorrow and you are sure to hear rumblings about Locke, Jack, Sawyer and the rest of Oceanic 815. In case you’ve been living in a hatch for the past five years and hadn’t heard, the final season of Lost premiers tonight and will be sure to dominate water cooler discussions (Ratty soda machine discussions?) for the next few months.

Lost premiers are usually epic affairs and rarely disappoint, but with the expectations this high, don’t be surprised if Lost fans experience just a bit of a let down.

Never mind, it’s going to be awesome.
