Mark Pellegrino Explains Lost, His One Direction Fandom And The Scary Tomorrow People

We’re not going to say Mark Pellegrino is destined to play a villain. After all, Lost’s Jacob — one of an impressive number of TV characters he’s brought to life — turned out to be a mostly good guy. But his mere presence in the premiere of The Tomorrow People tonight on the CW (9 pm ET) lets us know that the heroes are in trouble. His Dr. Jedikiah Price is the leader of Ultra, an organization that is trying to find and neutralize the so-called “Tomorrow People” or homo superiors, a new species with powers of telekinesis, telepathy and teleportation. We recently spoke to Pellegrino, however, and he defended Jedikiah’s motives as pretty reasonable. He also managed to share his thoughts on his roles in Lost, Mulholland Drive, Supernatural and Doogie Howser M.D., and — brace yourselves — how he came to love Glee and One Direction.

Clean-Cut Naked Cowboy Looks Just Like Jacob From Lost

This is easily one of the weirdest things we’ve ever written, but here goes. The man known as the Naked Cowboy is familiar to anyone who has ever been in Times Square or seen an M&M’s commercial, and he has decided to run for president. Like Wyclef Jean and Donald Trump before him, we have no idea what his real platform is, but since he’s vaguely famous and pop-culture-related we’re interested in what he has to say, no matter how dumb. Except that, in his effort to clean up, it turns out that the Naked Cowboy, who’s normally, you know, naked and has long hair, has turned into another fearless leader, Jacob from Lost. One little haircut and all we can think about is his cabin on a remote part of the island and his mysteriously powerful touch.

The resemblance is pretty uncanny, but if the Cowboy (real name: Robert Burck) can manipulate his followers with cunning and persuasion like Jacob could, who knows what will happen on election day?
