For years, The Others searched for Jacob, the mysterious god-like inhabitant of the magical island on Lost. Ben Linus was heartbroken that he never received an audience with Jacob. This devastation turned into homicidal rage when Ben finally did get face-to-face with him.
Luckily, we had better luck than Ben did. I’m not sure if we are all candidates or if the island’s savior is just a big fan of pop culture and ridiculous humor, but whatever the case, Jacob himself – Mark Pellegrino – sat down for an interview with HoboTrashcan this week.
I actually brushed up against him in the hallway here at Hobo Headquarters as he was heading in for his interview, which according to the show means I can no longer be killed. So I have that going for me, which is nice.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
One on One Mark Pellegrino
Mark Pellegrino is such a big deal in Hollywood these days that people who see him on the street just want to walk up and touch him … then again, that could be because his god-like character Jacob on Lost can grant immortality to anyone he lays his hand on.

Murphy’s Law – James Cameron wants me to hate him
After Avatar was overlooked at the Oscars, Joel Murphy was ready to stop talking about that film and its director, James Cameron. But the announcements that Cameron will be releasing three different versions of the film and that he will be releasing a 3D version of Titanic is enough to get Murphy back in front of his keyboard.
Outside of the In-Crowd – Duckface is on the loose!
Miley Cyrus has two things working against her right now – bad parents and a duck face. The end of her Hannah Montana show, combined with her bad parents, could be a recipe for disaster. Courtney Enlow is hoping Cyrus’ career fizzles out quickly so that we don’t have another Lindsay Lohan situation on our hands.

Hobo Radio 123 – Lars’ mom has got it going on
We’ve all wondered why Lars has a drinking problem and severe emotional issues. This week, Lars finally opens up. It turns out that many of his issues can be traced back to his mother, who traumatized him by lusting after any ruggedly handsome man with a sweet mustache or a tight behind.
