like in last Wednesday’s recap of “The Candidate,” I’ve speculated that Smokey has been manipulating Hurley by appearing to him as the likes of Charlie, Isabella, and Michael. There now seems to be an official ruling on the matter. In their latest podcast, which you can find many places on the Web including at docarzt.com, exec producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof tell fans that while almost anything and everything on Lost is open to interpretation, it would be safe and logical to assume that the Man In Black isn’t messing with Hurley.

Check out the new trailer for his forthcoming Mexploitation movie Machete, which starts with a ticked off-looking Danny Trejo declaring, “This is Machete, with a special Cinco de Mayo message… to Arizona!” Yep, Trejo and Rodriguez are taking a poke at that state’s recently passed legislation which makes failure to carry immigration documents a crime.
But, hey, it’s not all political satire in Machete trailer-land. There’s also plenty of mayhem, cuss words, and, above all stars, including Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey from Lost, Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan, and Steven Seagal. That’s right: It’s Lohan and Seagal! Together at last!
Watch the trailer after the break, and tell us what you think. READ FULL STORY
