Lost frequently makes a joke of the fact that of its cluster of crash survivors, only a certain number of extremely interesting characters (and Charlie) ever get to do exciting stuff on camera.
And so it's entirely feasible that J.J. Abrams can conjure up Elliot - the character you'll play as the game runs its seven 'episodes' parallel to the Lost storyline. Conveniently, he conforms to two of the most overused character devices in gaming: he's an amnesiac (ding!) and a photojournalist (ding! ding!), who may well be required to take photos of the various beasts and mysteries on the island.
