Lost-related trivia

  • Among his most prominent film roles is the title character in the cult film The Lawnmower Man which starred Pierce Brosnan. In it, Fahey plays a mentally handicapped landscaper named Jobe. Jobe acquires superior intelligence and becomes megalomaniac after a researcher (Brosnan) uses him as a test case for experiments with virtual reality. The research project is directed by a mysterious agency called The Shop. The movie, Hollywood's first ever treatment of virtual reality, was purportedly based on a Stephen King story, although King successfully sued to have his name removed from the film.
