Is Jin the next LOST character to be killed?
Actor Daniel Dae Kim better hope that the third time is not the charm. He was arrested in Hawaii this morning on suspicion of drunk driving. Lost producers have a tendency to kill off characters when the actors playing them get into trouble with the law. In 2005, Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros (Anna Lucia and Libby) were both arrested and pleaded guilty to drunken driving. In 2006, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, (Mr. Eko) had his LOST experience end when he was arrested for a traffic violation, and accused of disobeying a police officer and driving without a license.
Jin isn't my favorite character, and it has already been reported that a major character will be killed off in the early part of next season that starts in February, so maybe he just sealed his own fate. We'll have to see.
What is it with Hawaii and LOST actors? I have NO tolerance for drunk driving. NONE. There is no excuse for it. Give up the keys, call a friend, a cab, whatever you have to do. You drink, you don't drive. That's it. There is no reason for the danger you put yourself and especially others in. It's a shame. Luckily, no one was hurt and I hope it doesn't happen again. *Stepping down from soapbox*
