How much do we love Maggie Grace? The 22-year-old actress has the No. 1 movie in the country right now (The Fog) and one of the top TV shows (Lost). She’s so hot that USA Today has not one but two interviews with her today (here and here).
Anyway, enjoy her while you can because after tonight, Lost will be in reruns for a couple weeks. On Nov. 9, however, Lost will return with a Shannon-centered episode. (Mild spoiler alert: Ian Somerhalder will be back as Boone, though only in his stepsister’s flashback. Another series regular, however, will ”be lost forever.”)
I’m guessing it’s not Grace, though, since USA Today says she’s just bought a house in Hawaii (something Somerhalder was just about to do when he learned his character was to be killed off last season). ”I love it here,” she says, ”but it’s not a place you can really pursue acting.” In other words, despite her current success, she has nothing in the pipeline. (A rumored role in the next X-Men film failed to materialize.)
C’mon, people, let’s help her out and suggest some side projects for Grace. Get her a guest spot on ER, or a supporting role in that forthcoming Leonardo DiCaprio thriller. A femme fatale part in a juicy noir. OK, she can’t play Effie in Dreamgirls, but otherwise, we’d go see her in just about anything.
