The Last Man star Ben Mendelsohn is ready to return to the role of the titular character on the hit British series The Lost, the actor tells Us Weekly.
“I’m not sure I want to get back on a soap and say, ‘I’m just a little bit more powerful,'” Mendeland said.
“You’ve got to do it, it’s the truth, and it has to be done in a way that’s not going to be hurtful to the characters.”
The Lost is a British sitcom that stars Mark Strong and Lucy Liu.
Mendelands character, a former military commander who now runs a small-time art gallery in London, was introduced in the Season 4 finale.
“He’s the last man on Earth, and that’s a pretty big statement,” Mendel told Us.
“The show is kind of about how people become who they are, and he’s just one of the last people left standing.”
The Last Men star, who plays “the last man,” told Us that he and his fellow actors don’t want Mendelto be taken out of the story.
“There’s something really powerful about being able to say, I’m not just a guy that sits at home in a cabin all day, eating his own dog food and doing his own thing,” Mendels said.
When asked if he feels the same way about Mendel, the former military leader, he said, “I think I’m a little more of a badass now.
But I still think I’ve got the ability to make things happen.
I still have a lot of energy.”
