Video: Matthew Perry is not sure how to go on without 'Lost'

Matthew Perry's love for the TV show "Lost" -- which, yes we know, is no longer on the air -- has been publicly proclaimed in the past. But the depths of his Dharma devotion was made even more clear during last night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." "That's my favorite thing in the history of entertainment," Perry told Kimmel, apparently forgetting that he probably should have included both "Friends" and "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" in that statement since he was actually on those shows. During the interview, the actor formerly known as Chandler Bing -- or as I prefer to call him, Miss Chanandler Bong -- also poked fun at "Two and a Half Men" and copped to accidentally referring to Jorge Garcia, who appears with Perry on his new show "Mr. Sunshine," as dude. Watch and enjoy....

Our favorite 'Lost' stars: where are they a year later?

The "Lost" line-up.(ABC) We all know what today is. And no, I don't mean Groundhog Day. On this date, one year ago, the final season of "Lost" began. Think back to Feb. 2, 2010 -- back then, you didn't think there would eventually be an uprising against Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, did you? You also totally didn't see Dogen coming either, I'll bet. (Hey, few of us did.) To commemorate the one-year anniversary of the beginning of the "Lost" end, we decided to catch up with some -- though hardly all -- of the stars from our bewildering, maddening, beloved island adventure. Join us on this brief journey, which will not involve any plane crashes or references to golden bodies of water. We promise....

When playing the 'Lost' numbers is not bad luck

And this time, it didn't lead to the deaths of Grandpa Tito or Tricia Tanaka. In a mind-blowing coincidence that once again proves the world revolves around "Lost" even though it's no longer on television, the winning numbers in the Mega Millions lottery came dangerously close to being those same numbers. In real life, they were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, with Mega Ball number 42. As Geekosystem explains, anyone who correctly chose three...

Celebritology Giftology Day 2: Getting 'Lost'

"Lost," in mammoth book form. (DK Press) Here's the second in our 12 Days of Celebritology Giftology series, a dozen posts designed to help you cross the celebrity- and pop-culture-obsessed pals off your holiday gift-giving lists. Think of these posts as our gift to you. We're just that generous. Today's mission: Satisfy the "Lost" lover in your life. (Hey, give us some credit. We waited an entire day into this series before we suggested any "Lost"-related gift options.) Your Sawyer-deprived friends and/or relatives already have the tricked-out "Lost" Season 6 Blu-ray box set. They already own every other season of the dearly departed Dharma drama on DVD. They even managed to score a couple of precious items during the "Lost" auction. So what's left to give them for the holidays? Given the plethora of "Lost" merchandise out there, plenty. Here are a few specific recommendations....

AMC's 'Walking Dead': Have we found our next 'Lost'?

One of 'Walking Dead's' walking dead. (AMC) Video: Zombies invade D.C. Forget vampires. In the land of TV, zombies are king. Dessicated, stinky kings -- but kings nonetheless. AMC's "The Walking Dead" premiered Sunday night and is already generating major buzz, tearing up Google search trends, generating conversation on Twitter and giving all of us something to talk about on this post-Halloween morning besides the number of Snickers bites we consumed yesterday. (For the record, it was only two!) This bodes well for a show our own Hank Stuever described as "'Lost'-like," a comparison that means the show may be ripe for slavish devotion and endless rehashing. Unless it turns out to be, like, "Flash Forward" or something. Since we know a thing or two about slavish devotion to "Lost" we thought we'd, ahem, apply our analytical skills to see if "Walking Dead" has what it takes to motivate...

Josh Holloway joins cast of 'Mission: Impossible 4'

Josh Holloway, choosing to accept "Mission." (ABC) James "Sawyer" Ford, you now work for Mr. Tom Cruise. According to an item in the Hollywood Reporter, Josh Holloway has been cast as a member of the Impossible Mission Force in "Mission: Impossible IV," where he will appear alongside the aforementioned Cruise (leader of said Force) and Jeremy Renner, among others. This is the first major motion-picture role for Holloway, who filled the small screen with pop-culture-inspired nicknames and dirtbag hotness for six seasons on TV's "Lost." For those keeping score, let's adjust our tallies. This marks our second major casting announcement of the day involving a former "Lost" star and the second time a J.J. Abrams project (he's the producer of "M:I IV") recently has provided a job for a former "Lost" cast member -- third time if you count Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson as separate entities in their...
