A source close to the situation explained:
World War Z is turning out to be a pretty darn big movie! It's even getting a sequel!
But if you blink — or just can't pull your gaze away from Brad Pitt's dreamy eyes — you'll miss Matthew Fox's turn as a helicopter pilot.
Why did the Lost star get such a small role? Well, it turns out those infamous reshoots where they scrapped half the movie? Apparently Matthew's role was mostly in the tail section.
Matthew said of his character in an interview last year:
"He’s a Navy SEAL who rescues Brad Pitt and his family off of a rooftop in Philadelphia. He ends up looking after his family amidst this chaos, while Brad Pitt’s character tries to find a solution to the zombie apocalypse…
My role would be more developed, I think, if there were to be more films."
Eesh! We hate to break it to you, Foxy, but we're pretty sure that isn't happening! And it's all thanks to your old Lost boss!
That's right, it was none other than Damon Lindelof, showrunner of Lost, whose restructuring of the film left Matthew on the cutting room floor!
Ouch! Talk about getting Jacked!
