They say age ain't nothin' but a number, and Lost actor Doug Anthony Hutchison clearly takes that credo to heart.
The 51-year-old actor – who most recently played DHARMA leader Horace Godspeed on Lost, has revealed that he married 16-year-old aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden in Las Vegas in May.
Hutchison, who was also praised for his role as a prison guard in The Green Mile, posted his happy announcement on his personal website.

Be careful what you wish for!
That's the message that Jorge Garcia, who played unlucky lotto winner Hugo "Hurley" Reyes on Lost, has for the more than 9,000 Mega Millions winners who cashed in by using the mysterious numbers from ABC's hit show.
"The numbers are bad," he writes in a post on his blog headlined, "When Will People Learn?"
The post continues with the words "Enjoy your" and an image of a $100 bill and a $50 bill with the word "cursed" stamped over them.

In an eerie echo of the numbers that haunted Lost character Hugo "Hurley" Reyes, four of the six numbers drawn in the $355 million Mega Millions lottery Tuesday night matched those of the likable islander, who believed his luck was cursed.
In the show, Hurley – played by Jorge Garcia – won $114 million in a lottery with the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
Tuesday's Mega Millions numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42, with 42 being the Mega Ball number. Anyone who played those four of Hurley's numbers won about $150.

And you thought "the numbers" would never add up to anything significant.
The riddle of the recurring digits 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 … … the source of much fan fascination and debate since they popped up on Hurley’s winning lottery ticket in season 1 … … was solved Tuesday when Locke Monster (Terry O’Quinn) informed Sawyer (Josh Holloway) that the numbers are why Lost's characters are on the island: Certain members of Oceanic 815 are on a numbered list of “candidates” to take over Jacob’s role as the island's "protector." If the mysterious authority figure wore shoes, those would seem to be some big ones to fill.

Before landing Lost, Josh Holloway was a struggling actor who was thisclose to saying goodbye to Hollywood and hello to a career in real estate. Six years later, the 40-year-old Georgia native with the killer dimples is a bonafide TV star and fan favorite, thanks to his nuanced portrayal of Sawyer, the con man currently heartbroken over the death of almost-fiancée Juliet. Holloway recently sat down with PEOPLE in his trailer on the show’s Hawaii set to talk about what lies ahead for his character -- No more Kate? A partnership with the island’s dark force? -- as well as his post-Lost career plans and the joys of first-time fatherhood. Caution: spoilers ahead! --Shawna Malcom
How’s poor Sawyer holding up when we see him again in Tuesday’s episode?He’s still racked with grief and full of guilt for allowing Juliet’s death to happen.
But Juliet’s the one who let go of Sawyer’s grip and detonated the bomb!That doesn’t erase the shame and guilt of not being able to hold on. At the core, it’s a man’s responsibility to protect, no matter what. Going forward, Sawyer’s all anger. He hooks up with Locke because he just doesn’t care to live anymore. He’s already dead inside.

Lost -- and Temple-sidekick Lennon’s bare feet -- hit the ground running last night. Let’s do the same! And yes, if you didn’t see Tuesday's episode, beware of spoilers!
The episode was entitled “What Kate Does,” a nod to a second-season installment called “What Kate Did,” in which viewers found out that the crime the feisty fugitive had committed was murdering her lecherous father. Alas, we got no clear-cut answer from Sideways Kate, though perhaps we got a couple of clues. She told the mechanic she paid to help her out of her handcuffs that she was “wanted for murder” -- not that she’d “committed” it -- something that seems significant considering her later question to Claire: “Would you believe me if I said I was innocent?” Could Kate-On-the-Run 2.0 actually be guilt-free? We know deviations from Lost history are possible in this new topsy-turvy timeline. If she is guilt-free, what might that tell us about the still-murky connection between the Island and Sideways worlds?

Lost's final season continues Tuesday with a Kate-centric outing that promises not only to shed more light on the mysteries surrounding the freckled fugitive (Evangeline Lilly) but also the back-with-a-vengeance Claire (Emilie de Ravin).
The two characters' journeys have long been intertwined, thanks to the child they both love: Aaron. Kate stepped up to raise the son Claire gave birth to on the island after the single mom disappeared -- and briefly resurfaced in Jacob's cabin -- during season 4. And judging from last week’s premiere -- when a handcuffed Kate hijacked Claire's cab in a desperate attempt to elude the U.S. Marshall intent on bringing her to justice -- not even the new flash-sideways can keep the two women out of each other's lives.

The cloud of secrecy surrounding two pivotal Lost mysteries was lifted with one breathtaking reveal in Tuesday’s highly anticipated premiere: John Locke is the smoke monster!
Since last May’s finale … … which disclosed that Locke had, in fact, died at the hands of Ben -- fans had theorized about the entity that had taken over his body. But few might have expected the answer to be the thick plume of black smoke that has captivated and mystified them since Lost’s 2004 debut.
“People would ask us all the time, 'What’s the monster?’” says executive producer Damon Lindelof. “It was fun to finally be able to say, ‘You’ve been asking the wrong question. You should’ve been asking who.'”
Continues Lindelof, “The audience’s hope that Locke wasn’t really dead clouded their ability to see him for who he really was.”
Not to mention Terry O’Quinn’s. “I was like, ‘I’m Smokey? Well, now that’s freaky,’” says the actor, who learned of the twist when he read the premiere script. “I thought, ‘There goes a bunch of possibilities -- and here comes a whole bunch of new ones!”

As the brain trust behind Lost, which returns for its sixth and final season on ABC Feb. 2, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse work overtime to keep the show’s secrets secret. (It doesn't always work: Some leaks -- like the first hour of the premiere that hit the web Monday -- spoil it for everyone and thus we aren’t linking to it here!) Lindelof and Cuse have already promised to shed light on the Smoke Monster, the Numbers and the Man in Black this season, so PEOPLE sat down with the guys for answers to several other burning questions. -- Shawna Malcom
What would you say the fans are asking right now that is a complete waste of their time?Carlton Cuse: “Are we going to answer all the tiny, little, minute questions?” The focus should be, “How are the character stories going to resolve? What is the destiny of these that were brought to this place?” Damon Lindelof: We’re going to answer the mysteries that have relevance to the characters that were on Oceanic 815. If it doesn’t have relevance to them, then we’re pretty much going to let it lie there and let theorize about it. What’s relevant to the characters on Oceanic 815 and what isn’t? That’s what season six is all about.

Details on the sixth and final season of ABC's Lost -- which premieres (finally!) on Feb. 2 -- have been harder to come by than a smooth landing on Oceanic Airlines. Did Juliet succeed in detonating the hydrogen bomb -- and blasting the show's beloved characters to an island-free existence? If Locke is dead, who's taken over his body? Can Sayid survive his nasty gunshot wound? Will we ever fully understand what's really going on with this show?
PEOPLE found answers to those pressing questions -- plus 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 or 42 more -- during a visit to the drama's top-secret set in Oahu, Hawaii. --Shawna Malcom
