Matthew Fox tells Us magazine that he has no plans to return to television after “Lost” wraps in May.
“I’ve done two, six-year shows, about 300 hours of television,” said Fox. “I’m done with that.”
The actor, 43, doesn’t plan on giving up his craft completely, but wants to focus more on his family.
“I’m either going to make movies with filmmakers I want to work with or I’ll be doing something else entirely… My family will move to Oregon, back to the country I love,” he says of relocating his family from Hawaii. “I miss the four seasons climate. We’re building a house up there and I’ll be closer to my brothers and my mother. Our kids will be closer to their first cousins.”
Aside from starring in six seasons of “Lost,” Fox is best known for his starring role as the older brother Charlie Salinger in “Party of Five.”
On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel, Kimmel and guest Matthew Fox had a staring contest to see who would claim the title of “Gorgeous Man” and ended up in the shower together.
I really should watch the Kimmel show, he cracks me up. Sorry I missed Matthew Fox last night!
Did you guys watch the Lost finale? I just finished it a couple minutes ago, and holy crap! The first hour and a half were pretty boring, but man – the last half hour was INTENSE!! So excited to see what they do next season (which is the last season!)
I missed Live-Blogging last week’s Lost, because I was sick. And I really missed it! When I watched Lost, it wasn’t the same, because I had all these questions, and no one to ask!
So tonight Live-Blogging Lost is BACK!
If you haven’t joined us yet, you should come tonight! We meet at 9:00PST, and watch Lost together! We can ask/answer each other’s questions! If you live in another time zone, then simply DVR Lost, then watch it with us when it starts at 9:00 PST! (If you can wait, that is!)
We’d love to see you tonight…join us!
PS: I found this great photo shoot of Jack & Kate on EW (Matthew Fox & Evangeline Lilly). Check them out!
On “Lost” coming to an end: “Personally, it’s a relief…I owe this show a great amount, and I think it’s exceptionally good…[but] I am looking forward to the freedom that comes with not working on one project professionally.”
On the “Lost” series finale: “This show started with a plane crash on an island in the South Pacific, and it’s going to have a very global and epic ending.”
On moving to Oregon: “My major motivation is to be closer to family. My brother is there, my mother is there…I really miss that kind of wide-open space.”
Welcome home Matthew! I live in Oregon. Let’s me up…you name the place.
