Interview | Two roles, no waiting

Two roles, no waiting | By William Keck

HOLLYWOOD — For actress Elizabeth Mitchell, there’s no escaping babies.
As Tim Allen’s Mrs. Claus, she gives birth to the spawn of St. Nick in The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, which opened last weekend to $19.5 million.
As Juliet on ABC’s Lost, she is a fertility doctor closely connected to the children abducted by The Others.

And in her home today, she’s playing mom to C.J., her first child with her stand-up-comic husband, Chris Soldevilla. Like Dad, the 13-month-old appears to be quite the little comic himself. When Mitchell holds out her arms for him to walk to her, he toddles right past her and giggles.
There also are two dogs, two cats and several boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the house, which has been left in shambles after hosting relatives in town for her Santa premiere.
Before posing for the camera, Mitchell, 36, slips on a black sweater, quickly combs her hair and dabs on a touch of makeup.

C.J. was just 5 weeks old when Mitchell began shooting her Santa role as a pregnant Mrs. Claus. The costumes conveniently disguised what remained from the 70 pounds she had gained while carrying C.J.
“Being so womanly and that voluptuous was heavenly because I’ve always been such a stick,” she says in a soft, melodic voice.
“The behind you see in Santa Clause is all mine. I am very low-maintenance when it comes to my look. If it takes me more than 10 minutes to get my funny little face ready, I find it exhausting.”

At the Santa premiere, Allen, who is a big Lost fan, accosted her for inside dirt but was unsuccessful. Tonight’s episode (9 ET/PT) is the last of 2006.
“There’s a really great scene — a jaw-dropper,” Mitchell teases. “When my husband read the scene with me, he said, ‘Oh my God.’ Everything is not what it seems. Pay careful attention to the Juliet and Jack (Matthew Fox) characters. There is one look on Matt’s face that makes the whole episode worth watching.”
An undeniable attraction has been developing between the two as Jack is being kept prisoner in an old dolphin tank as Juliet’s study subject.
She and Fox recently shot a scene for the show’s Feb. 7 return, in which “all hell has just broken loose, and Jack says something that makes her smile — enough to see that there’s something in them that speaks to each other. Honestly, as far as personality types, Matt’s my favorite.”

That February episode also will reveal more about Juliet’s fertility project with flashbacks exploring her past. “She’s going to get in a lot of trouble pretty soon,” Mitchell hints. “I don’t know what’s going to happen to poor Juliet.”

Elizabeth Mitchell, ‘Lost’
The Others are a creepy bunch, no doubt, but Mitchell’s so sly, so deliciously deceptive, we’re not quite sure what to believe anymore. Is she really trying to help Jack by convincing him to off Michael Emerson in a purposely botched spinal surgery, or was that part of the master plan all along? Only the writers know, but with “Lost” characters having shorter lifespans all the time, it would be nice if Mitchell stayed around for a while.

Lost | Latest From Kristin: Speculations About Juliet

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell.jpg1) Ben’s pants are on fire! And I’m guessing Juliet’s are, too. That seemingly untrustworthy she-devil obviously seems to be a part of a bigger plan by Ben to get Jack to trust someone, but Jules at least was telling the truth when she said this: Ben is a liar, and a dangerous man. We’ve known this from the first day we laid eyes on the artist then known as Henry Gale, when his captor, Rousseau, warned, “Know this. He will lie. A long time. He will lie.” Nutty Frenchy-poo wasn’t so nutty after all, was she?

2) Speaking of Nutty Frenchy-poo, we will begin to see more of her daughter, Alex, next week, who will have a substantial role this season, and slowly, the revelation of why The Others have abducted so many children. Gaa! And speaking of…

3) Crazy theory of the week: If Juliet and some of the other Others really do want to kill Ben, why haven’t they just done it? Well, what if that little girl we were supposed to see in Jack’s room in the season premiere (the one ABC had a photo of on the media site) is Juliet’s daughter? Is Ben somehow holding her, and other children, hostage (a la Walt) as a way to keep the parents under his creepy little thumb? Discuss in the comments below!

Lost 3×05 Ratings

Part of “Old Info And News”

“Lost” (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
“Lost” won its time period and ranked as the No. 1 TV program of the night in Adults 18-49 for the 5th straight week (on each of its telecasts this season), defeating second-place CBS’ “Criminal Minds” in the slot by 35% (6.6/16 vs. 4.9/12). The winning advantage for ABC’s “Lost” over CBS’ older skewing “Criminal Minds” was 56% with Adults 18-34 (5.6/15 vs. 3.6/10). In fact the difference between the audiences for the ABC and CBS dramas is quite pronounced. Premiere to date, the median age for the “Criminal Minds” viewer is over 10 years older than the “Lost” viewer (53.5 years vs. 43.2 years). Furthermore CBS’ “Criminal Minds” is heavily dependent on viewers 50+ to drive up its Total Viewer count, as 58% of its overall viewership this season is concentrated in that age group.

* For the 5th consecutive week, “Lost” was Wednesday’s No. 1 TV show in each of the key adult demos (AD18-34 – 5.6/15, AD18-49 – 6.6/16 and AD25-54 – 7.6/17) and in Teens 12-17 (3.4/11).
