Wowie I think you're right!

http://fullhdpictures.com/evangeline-lilly-hq-wallpapers.html/45eme-festival-de-television-de-monte-carlo-equipe-de-la-serie-lost-jpi-w

I knew her face looked *soooooo* familiar

So the question is: is Dan (who reads all our theories) trolling us, or is there actually a connection? I mean, rationally I think this is just his wink to us... but what if it's more than that???? What then????

Shocked

Keep it up, Fatima!

Fatima Abourizk is an anagram for

AAA FORUM KIBITZ

Ok, Dan is trolling us.

The healthy living "initiative" and yoga stuff are definitely Dharma Initiative jokes. Man, this is a pretty great little Easter egg!

EDIT: I JUST REALISED THE LAST TIME I MENTIONED LOST I SAID I'D PLOTZ IF THERE WERE ANY MORE CONNECTIONS. THEY ARE TROLLING ME PERSONALLY IN *YIDDISH!*

Mission accomplished guys, I'm just gonna pack it in and call it a day.

Edit: someone on Reddit did a side by side and... Yeah, I'd say this is confirmed.

Lol, Gimlet, Yiddish LOST connection would sound like "Men Ken Lebn Nor Men LOST Nisht" Very Happy

I say you, next message by Howard to Megan will be:

"Come home. Bei Mir Bistu Shein".

P.S. I hope somebody analyzed other characters, like who looked like Obama.

That Evangeline Lily thing is a great easter egg! Love it!

This is me, jumping in late to the conversation. So busy with work!

So, I've been thinking. Are we missing something here? Is one of these other faces telling us something? Two of those faces (Teddy and Evangeline) are absolutley easter eggs for us, so is there more to the other ones as well?

In particular I feel like I've seen Nikolai's face before as much as I did Evangeline/Fatima. It's really bothering me.

Probably won't get an update til tonight, and we got nothing better to do until then so I feel lile we might as well look into it.

Yes, I am very sure, Nikolai Roza is involved in something. And true, his face is not unfamiliar to me. Just where have I seen him before?..

I don't think it was the same actor, but wasn't there a team of Russian researchers on LOST? I'm remembering them as bad guys. Obviously the wait for new info is getting to me if I'm trying to connect this ARG and LOST!

So, I don't think it's this guy:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0411964/

But. That's getting pretty close right?

He's from a former Soviet Block country. He was also on Revolution, a Bad Robot joint (didn't watch it, tried pilot but quickly lost interest, sorry BR).

With a lot of photoshopping (mostly adding hair) I could totally turn him into that guy, but I don't think it's quite close enough.

Definitely some similar (slavic?) features to our guy though.

EDIT: Okay, You Guys? I think that Theodore Nessn's face (below the eyebrows anyways) is Jack Coleman (AKA The Man with the Horn Rimmed Glasses from Heroe)s! Which is pretty interesting - not a Bad Robot production, but it did have Slusho and Greg Grunberg so there's a solid connection to Cloverfield.

https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jack_Coleman_Get_Smart_premiere_arrival_(crop).jpg

I wonder if they're choosing faces that have been connected to pop cultural mysteries in the past (if you watched it, a big mystery was just who his character was), to give us a little tingling sense of foreboding. Pretty clever, if so.

Now I think there's *definitely* something going on here.

The Russian guy from LOST you people mean is Mikhail Bakunin
http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0032458/?ref_=fn_al_ch_1
played by Andrew Divoff.

I'm still looking for Nikolai Roza, since, really his face is very familiar.

P.S. Still think, Art Reynoso has a fake glasses and fake mustache. And somebody familiar behind...

Yeah, I looked at the Russian guy from Lost. I discounted him, but on second look could actually be him as well. There's just enough photoshop on these guys to throw us off, but it also seems like the photoshopping is so intentionally bad as to call our attention to it.

But both those guys have distinctive, droopy, asymetrical eyelids. So, it's Possible.

And yeah, I've had that same thought about Art.

It's like he's wearing one of these:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groucho_glasses

Which is pretty hilarious, actually.

Edit: realising that it looked like Groucho glasses made me think this is a very recognizable actor who has been heavily edited to disguise him, which made me discount the nose, and focus on the mouth instead which has a distinctive underbite, which led me to:

http://thefilmstage.com/news/woody-allen-adds-lost-actor-michael-emerson-to-next-film/

Which is pretty darn close. The mouth, dimples, eye folds, teeth, ears and reflections on the cheeks are all pretty similar there.

I dunno. These things have been so heavily edited it's confusing, and I really can't tell if I'm seeing what I want to anymore.

But at the same time, the photoshopping here seems so curious and intentional.

And every time it's a JJ associates' top image search hit that's the closest match. Am I just seeing things?

Lol, Groucho glasses - first thing I thought seen his face.

I am almost convinced, Kielholz is photoshopped Obama:

and

https://dapperngent.wordpress.com/2012/11/07/barack-obama-by-terry-richardson/

Perhaps another photosession, but so similiar!
