Mysterious image confirmed real (*Updated*)

Update: 6th Jan 2008 Thanks to Anthony, we have another potential candidate, Aden Young. Have we at last found him?

IMDB Profile

And thanks to Barbara for this interesting connection ... "Rodger Corser (Sam) and Aden Young were both actors on the US miniseries THE STARTER WIFE, filmed in Australia. IMDB Credits".


After a lot of debate today I can confirm to you that this photo which has been enhanced by kokowawa is definitely part of the game and was not added accidentally. Thanks to Koobie and Docarzt for finding the original frame in the film.

So who is this person and what role will they play in the ARG? Does anyone recognise him? Thanks to Luis for the cleaned up photo.



Thanks to DarkUFO reader Maik, who thinks it may be Barry Pepper. Personally I'm still not 100% convinced.. What do you all think?

Allasburypark said...

Maik said...

He look extremely familiar to me.
I'll definitly post again if I can think of where I've seen him before.

Maik said...

(Sorry for double post)

It's this guy's face that jumped out at me in my memory.
I saw him in the movies Unknown and 25th Hour

I don't know if this is up yet ... it loos like there is numbers on Suns polaroid ... they read "1 7 5 3 1 0 6 5 0 6 0". You can check the picture here and feel free to use it.

Hey Dark, this was actually a joint effort between myself and Koobie. We reported it as authentic at 10pm est yesterday at http://www.docarzt.com

Reva-T Bojangles said...

yeah, barry pepper was the first thing that came to mind when i saw this

DarkUFO said...

Thanks doc, updated to include credit.

jacob said...

no way cheekbones and facial structure look too different

Killerbob said...

yeah I'm agree with Jacob. Its not Barry Pepper.

maven said...

Don't see the comparison at all.

I think this might be someone from the freighter...a way to tie in Find815 and the show.

cldx said...

I cannot tell who it is, only thing i know is that i definetely seen him before, this is driving me crazy right now...

Paula said...

sorry, i agree with jacob and killerbob, it's not Barry Pepper... jaw is too diferent...

he looks familiar to me since i first saw the pic but i'm terrible with faces and i can't seem to place where i've seen him before.....

andrea said...

"Misterious"'s face is kinda bigger than Pepper's.
In my personal opinion this guy is connected to Cloverfield..

Jake Chambers said...

Where the heck did I see this face before???

LeParisien said...

I know who it is!
It's Laurent Fournier!!!!!!!

Ex-coach of Paris Saint-Germain!!!

spazzyinbrizzi said...

i think the mystery man has fuller lips and a more pronounced chin than laurent fournier.

Goodwin said...

It looks nothing at all like Barry Pepper, do not know where you guys get that...

XaRen said...

Could it be Mads Mikkelsen?

It's the link to the german wikipedia site, because on the english one Mads is laughing:

Check google for more pics, but I'm not absolutely sure about this.

Sam said...

Not Barry Ppper

tanside said...

I have to hand it to them, this years ARG is pretty freakin' sweet!

sawker said...

I agree with you xaren, he looks a lot more like Mikkelsen than Pepper...even if there's something in those scary eyes that does not convince me at 100%

sapphirejedi said...

I know it's not him, but he reminds me of James LeGros.

David said...

that is not the same guy they just kinda look alike. not the same guy

Anthony said...

I think it looks like Aden Young. It would make sense if it was him, since he is Australian. I recognised him from an episode of Two Twisted.

experimentalfilm! said...

not pepper . DEFINITELY seen him before though

andrea said...

I'm still thinking about a "Cloverfield" connection for the Mysterious man.. "Cloverfield" will be a "Blair Witch Project movie", all from the point of view of character's camera.. A link to Sam's video, don't you think?

Nick said...

I think Aden Young is our man. He has a similar facial structure, his lips and nose are the same shape, and his right eye is a little slanted. Now all we have to do is figure out what part he is playing

Rafaella Albuquerque said...

Aden Young!!
Its him!!! for sure!! the details on his face matches perfectly. Thank you, Anthony... Great!

cal said...

definitely Aden Young, check out the little freckle to the left of his left nostril.

cldx said...

i vote for Aden Young too, check the comparision (sorry for the quality):

Jenny said...

Good find Anthony!

BarbaraJay said...

Connection?

Rodger Corser (Sam) and Aden Young were both actors on the US miniseries THE STARTER WIFE, filmed in Australia.

Thomasriekki said...

How can you tell it wasn't added by accident?
Has anyone phoned the number that is on the Klotho's webpage?

DarkUFO said...

How can you tell it wasn't added by accident?

My contact within the game confirmed that this image was added intentionally.

Thomasriekki said...

Wow, you have some good contacts! lol
Can you confirm that people have actually talked to killen on msn? I email him and have been talking to him on msn, but have gotten nothing back.

DarkUFO said...

Can you confirm that people have actually talked to killen on msn?

When I asked if the MSN Address was real or fake... they said "maybe"...

I suspect it's real.

sawker said...

Here there's a better photo of aden young http://www.viewimages.com/Search.aspx?mid=71793551&epmid=3&partner=Google
...definitely same mouth, nose and especially same eyes!

EddieValiant said...

I agree, looks like Aaron Stanford of ABCs horribly abused and undepreciated 'Traveler'.

http://image.com.com/tv/images/genie_images/story/2007/t/traveler_wil.jpg

Abc deserves a pat on the back for another Lost ARG, but a swift kick to the shin (or two...or three) for their horrible mismanagement of the awesomeness that was 'Traveler'.

Paula said...

i still don't see it.... i don't think it's Pepper or Young...
but i do feel ARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGG because i have seen this guy before!!!!

kessler27 said...

It has to be Aden Young. In comparing both pictures I found it hard to ignore that the eye on the left in each seems "crossed" and the mole on the right side is in the exact same spot.

mantooth12 said...

noo... i dont think they look alike at all...
maybe im blind aha

vicness-11 said...

Definitely looks like him to me. And also, this is a tad off topic... But watching the released videos from chapter two I kept thinking that Talbot looks a bit like him. Then again, maybe I've just been sitting staring at the computer screen for too long.
