The last time a former LOST character came to Charleston, Benjamin Linus (or Michael Emerson in real life) starred in Love Letters with his wife and True Blood actress, Carrie Preston, at Charleston Stage.

This time around, we get Kate’s doomed stepfather James Horan. The actor has also appeared on daytime TV shows, Clint Eastwood films, and every modern Star Trek TV series in his lengthy career, and now he comes to Charleston to perform Rattlesnake in a Cooler.

Horan will act in the one-man play — about a doctor spending his life on the open road (and getting blamed for murder) — at South of Broadway Theatre on Jan. 27-28, 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students.

While in town, Horan will also host a film and TV audition class at the venue on Sun. Jan 29 from 2-5 p.m. It costs $100, and space is only limited to 10 participants, so call (843) 814-4451 as soon as possible to register.
