'Deadwood' actor will take on the role of Lennon

John Hawkes
John Hawkes is joining the final season of "Lost" as a recurring.

The "Deadwood" alum will play Lennon. "Lost" producers wouldn't release information on the character. According to the casting breakdown, Lennon is the scruffy, edgy and charismatic spokesperson and translator for the president of a foreign corporation who is far more powerful than it seems from his position.

Hawkes, who played budding entrepreneur and politician Sol Star on David Milch's Western "Deadwood," recently co-starred on another HBO series, the offbeat comedy "Eastbound & Down."

His feature credits include "American Gangster" and "Miami Vice."

Hawkes is repped by Innovative and Thruline.
