(Newser) – Watching his handsome mug on screen, it's easy to see Lost star Matthew Fox following George Clooney's footsteps and moving easily from small screen to big. And while the 42-year-old actor is indeed looking forward to the end of the series and a switch to movie roles, the down-to-earth Ivy Leaguer seems genuine when he says he could take it or leave it, writes Peter Richmond in Details.

"I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't think I could," says Richmond of achieving movie success. "If the opportunities I get excited by keep coming, I'm going to continue working in this business. If they don't, then there are other things in my life I'd like to take on." These include "hobbies that seem to belong in back issues of Boys' Life," notes Richmond, especially cars and flying. Either way, Lost is probably his last TV role.
