Frustrated by the lack of an official name for the Man in Black, the Lost antagonist played by several different actors and a big puff of computer-animated smoke? Well, it now appears that the shadowy villain has been named — and no, it's not Esau, it's not Smokey, it's not Smocke, it's not MIB.
The information comes from the back of actor Titus Welliver's chair from the Lost set, confirming that his character goes by the name of Samuel. It was never mentioned by any character on the show and — as far as anyone has been able to tell — easter egg references to his name are few and far between. But if you're counting set pieces as in continuity, then there you have it: Samuel, aka Sammy the Smoke Monster. Kind of has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
The chair in question will be up for auction later this month.
