Where Were They Then?: Terry O'Quinn, AKA John Locke

Welcome to the first of a weekly series of posts entitled "Where Were They Then?" Each week we'll feature a new old clip of one of your favorite LOSTies before they were LOST. First up: Locke

John Locke might be my favorite character on LOST. Terry O'Quinn seems to be producer Chris Carter's favorite actor; he appeared in The X-Files, Millennium and Harsh Realms (multiple appearances in each, in fact). He was also in JJ Abram's Alias, as well as small roles on such great shows as JAG, Roswell, Diagnosis Murder, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Earth 2, Matlock, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Jake and the Fatman, Remington Steele, Twilight Zone: Totally 80's Edition, and Miami Vice. Perhaps coincidentally, I watched all of these shows with either my Mom or my grandma at some point (except The Twilight Zone. That shit was way too scary for lil' Cody). I also remember spending more than one Sunday afternoon watching The Stepfather, (probably on KTXL. Remember when channel 40 used to be awesome?) I don't remember too much about the movie, other than it was intense and it made me hope my parents never got divorced. For your viewing pleasure....

Hey Cody,

You texted me but my phone can't read it (because of Walt).

Resend?

Resent. If it doesn't work, I'll just call you tonight.

Didn't work. I can only assume that this text was about Chinese Democracy.

Because everything is about Chinese Democracy.

I was about Chinese Democracy. I asked Axl if he could play at my Christmas party to celebrate the release of such a great album. He said "Give me 15 years to think about it." My second choice is Knock Knock, but I'm not sure what the deal is with those assholes.

stumbling on the stepfather on late night channel 40 was one of the most intense and enjoyable movie experiences of my life.
