Voice cast: 'Lost' calls for Stevens
EmptyThe mysterious Minkowski, whose voice was heard on the other side of the satellite phone found by the "Lost" gang, now has a face as Fisher Stevens has been tapped to play the role on the ABC/ABC Studios series.
Meanwhile, Paul Blackthorne has joined the cast of NBC's midseason series "Lipstick Jungle," playing the husband of Brooke Shields' character.
Stevens will recur as Minkowski on "Lost." The character, which was referenced several times toward the end of last season, was only heard talking to Jack (Matthew Fox) on the phone and told the survivors in the third-season finale in May that they will be rescued.
In the "Lost" fan blogosphere, the name of the character has been tied to German mathematician Hermann Minkowski, whose Minkowski space — a four-dimensional system including the three dimensions of space plus the dimension of time — was used in Einstein's theory of special relativity.
Stevens, who recently co-directed the critically praised documentary, "Crazy Love," is repped by Fortitude and the Collective.
"Lipstick," from Universal Media Studios, stars Shields, Lindsay Price and Kim Raver as trio of successful professional women in New York. Shields plays a movie studio president and a harried wife and mother of three. Blackthorne will play her husband, a regular role that was recast. Chris Wiehl played the part in the pilot.
Blackthorne, who starred on Sci Fi Channel's "The Dresden Files," is recurring on ABC's "Big Shots." He is repped by SDB Partners, Seven Summits and attorney Dale De La Torre.
