We couldn't be happier to have Matthew Fox and Lost back in our lives and now that the writers' strike is over we're eager to see the cast back filming in Hawaii. Today, however, he was in Salamanca, Spain with Forest Whitaker and his other Vantage Point co-stars for a photocall and trip to city hall. The film takes place in the aftermath of an American president being assassinated and blurs the lines between good and evil, much like Lost does. When asked about playing characters that keep you guessing, Matthew said,
"I don’t know, I guess I’m really interested in the gray areas, and this concept that I’m not necessarily really sure about any concept of good and evil, black and white, good and bad. And I’m also very interested in the concept of perspective, it’s something I think about all the time in my life, the ability for one event to happen and for two people to perceive that event so differently, depending on where they’re standing and who they are and what kind of agenda they had in how they perceive it. It’s astounding to me, it really is, and I find myself running into it in my own life, just in my own micro-world, and in my relationships with family and friends and those types of conflicts, and then you extrapolate that out into conflicts between nation states. It’s just unbelievable to me how many people walk around in this world thinking their version of reality is the only one that exists."
Despite that big smile, Matthew seems like a pretty serious guy, not unlike his TV counterpart. We wouldn't mind seeing him in a lighter role, but apparently mushy stuff isn't his thing — he said he's only a 3 on the 1-10 scale of being a romantic. Guess we won't be hearing about any of Jack Shephard's super sweet Valentine's Day plans .
