- Lennon was possibly named due do his resemblance to famous musician John Lennon.
He was named "Lennon" in the casting listing, long before the actor was cast. So any resemblance is only coincidental. thomas —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tdstom (talk • contribs) 2010-02-03T09:58:07.
- On the contrary, they must have purposedly cast someone who looks like John Lennon, and makeup did the rest... It definitely CAN'T be coincidental. You notice the ressemblance at first glance...--Lauridsen77 15:40, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
- Did you read the casting notice? That came first. It mentions the character by name and says "could be any ethnicity." Meaning someone black could have played the part. If they wanted a Lennon look-a-like they would have stated that. thomas —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tdstom (talk • contribs) 2010-02-03T13:37:49.
- Just because they were asking for any ethnicity doesn't mean they weren't looking for someone who resembled John Lennon. And Tom, please learn to sign your talk page messages. 22:18, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
- I think the glasses give away the Lennon reference. They could have given the actor any old pair of glasses, but instead they give him the shape that John Lennon is well known for. It's a reference.--Baker1000 22:26, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
- It's possible that the name Lennon was just a casting call name and John Hawkes took it upon himself to wear the referential glasses in his audition and the producers liked it and ran with it. Lennon might not even be his final official name. PaulKowalewski 01:25, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
- Guys, let it be. Pauls above suggestion seems to be on the right tracks. John Hawkes probably saw the call, thought he lucked out, brought along the glasses and impressed at the auditions (I certainly like his performance so far). I don't want to spoil the party but while they didn't necessarilly want a Lennon look-a-like chances are they saw it as a little bonus and thus John Hawkes got the role. I'll probably add something new to the article since the edits made yesterday and today aren't clear on 'why' he is called Lennon. MeatyDoughnut 10:42, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
- And I am totally fine with this. I just don't want it to be thought they actually went out looking for a person who looked like John Lennon because they named the character that first. That's not really how it's done. Oh and Rob, I never sign my post. thomas —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tdstom (talk • contribs) 2010-02-06T23:54:46.
Lennon - prominent or minor Other
Should we change Lennon on the Other's nav-bar from minor Others to prominent Others? He's listed as Prominent on List of Others, while Harper who is listed as Semi-Prominent on the list is listed as a prominent Other on the nav bar. --Orhan94 14:34, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
Is it possible that the unidentified skeletons in the Heart were those of Lennon and the other translator, who died there? The bones/bodies could have been timeshifted. Just a theory.
