I recently spoke with actress Lizzy Caplan about her upcoming role in HBO’s True Blood.

Being that Caplan is a self-professed and outspoken fan of Lost, I asked her if she would be interested in joining the show or guest starring on it at some point.

“That’s one that’s impossible to turn down,” she said of the ABC phenomenon. “Lost is one of the most innovative shows out right now.”

Yet, Caplan acknowledged that an even more enticing opportunity would be the chance to create her own show with the backing of Lost’s creative forces. “I’d prefer to make my own stuff with the Bad Robot people,” she said.

I’m sure countless other people in the entertainment industry would say the same thing. The difference is, Caplan already caught the eye of J.J. Abrams when she was cast in “Cloverfield.” In fact, she told me that she accepted the part without even reading the script given her respect for Abrams. “I think a lot of people would agree with that [decision],” she told me. “There are a handful of other directors that, without reading anything, I would just sign on blindly for them for sure. J.J. is definitely one of them.”

Nothing is planned, but who knows if Caplan may one day appear in another Bad Robot production.
