'Lost' stars in renegotiation talks

Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly may get beefier paychecks

Call it Operation Oceanic Two.

ABC Studios, which produces the ABC drama "Lost," has quietly started renegotiations with stars Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly to beef up their paychecks, currently at about $150,000 per episode.

However, word of the talks leaked out by Friday, prompting reps for some of the other regulars to call the studio to open their own renegotiations. The majority of the "Lost" supporting players are in the $80,000-90,000 per episode range.
