He won the Oscar in 2010 for his score for the Pixar movie "Up." Last month, Abrams and Giacchino sat down and discussed their careers at the Hammer Museum. Here is the video, but be warned: it's 90 minutes long. Enjoy!

Matthew Fox on the London stage

Matthew Fox is getting away from TV and movies by taking to the London stage. He is currently preparing for a role in "In a Forest Dark and Deep," a new play Neil LaBute. Fox will play a brother to a character played by Olivia Williams, who together explore their troubled relationship while at a rural cabin. In an interview with the London Observer, he again said he was done with TV. "I'm never going to do another TV series. People have interpreted that as arrogance, as if I saying I'm destined to have a film career, but that's not it. I just won't have another six-year relationship with a massive conglomerate, one that tells me how high to jump."

Williams also said she was asked to audition for Lost, but she would have had to commit to at least five years on the show and move within 24 hours to Hawaii. She decided against it.

Vintage interview: Matthew Fox talks "Haunted"

CelebritySentry.com has posted an older interview with Matthew Fox from several years ago, when he starred in a short-lived UPN series called "Haunted." Among Fox's comments from the interview:
“When I first read the script for the Haunted pilot I saw very dark, gritty, moody, [film] noir-type images,” says Fox. “Even on the page it had that feel to it. I’m a big fan of that genre. I like those old noir movies and their characters, most of whom seem to be these dark, mysterious gentlemen with some terrible flaw in their past who are looking for redemption through their work. I pictured Frank as someone made from that mold, which I liked. Here’s a guy that feels responsible for the loss of his only son and throws himself into his work as a private eye in his search for redemption. It’s not only about redemption, though, on a subconscious level. It’s also on that very basic level that all parents who have lost a child have, which is the hope that someday they might find him or her.

“Being an ex-cop, Frank realizes, at least from a logical standpoint, that the chances of that are very slim indeed. however, there’s a part of him that still holds out hope against all odds. so that’s another aspect of him that appealed to me. Then you have everything that happens to him in the pilot and what it means to his future. I’m referring to the fact that part of his soul is connected like a string to the limbo between the living and the dead. Frank is serving as a conduit or a way for spirits that are caught in that world to put things right in this world. That’s a whole other challenge to playing Frank. There’s just so much to work with. when you come across a role like this the first thing you say to yourself as an actor is, ‘I don’t know if I can pull all that off.’ That’s actually what spurs me on. there always has to be an element of fear, I believe, in your work and life in general. All this jumped out at me and I knew I had to play this character. so here I am.”
