After 13 years of bit parts on TV, Fairfield native Eric Lange has found the biggest role of his career on “Lost.”

The 1991 Fairfield High School graduate and Miami University theater major begins a seven-episode story line tonight as “Radzinsky” (9 p.m., Channels 9, 22).

“What started as two episodes has grown quite a bit,” says Lange, who has appeared in “Criminal Minds,” “ER,” “Burn Notice,” “Entourage,” “Cold Case,” “Boston Legal” and “Ghost Whisperer.”

“They’ve really given me a great character to play. It’s a great, meaty part.”

He can’t say more because of the confidentiality agreement he signed with ABC to appear on the acclaimed five-year-old mystery about survivors of Oceanic Air flight 815 on a Pacific island.

ABC’s cryptic description of today’s episode says: “When some old friends drop in unannounced, Sawyer (Josh Holloway) is forced to further perpetuate his lie in order to protect them.” The guest cast includes a co-pilot (Dan Gauthier) and a photographer (Sven Lindstrom).

Lange also appears in next week’s show, described by ABC this way: “Things begin to unravel when one of the survivors goes rogue and takes matters into their own hands – risking the lives of everyone on the island.”

He’s not in the following two, then returns for the selesai five episodes this season. “Lost” concludes with a two-hour telecast May 13.

Lost Flashbacks To Return

Is Lost turning into That ’70s Show?

For now, at least, ABC’s sci-fi fantasy ended its time travel in 1977 ΓÇö and if you haven’t watched this week’s episode yet, stop reading right here.

The reunion in Wednesday’s episode “sets the template for what the show’s going to be in the next phase of storytelling,” says executive producer Carlton Cuse. Kate, Jack and Hurley have rejoined Sawyer and Jin, disguised as new Dharma initiates; Sayid, deemed an island “hostile,” is imprisoned. “We’re kind of done with the rapid skipping through time for a while,” Cuse says.

In the seven remaining episodes (including a two-hour, game-changing finale May 13), he says the show asks, “What do they do now, and what are the consequences of that?”

First up is Sayid (Naveen Andrews), in a bit of role reversal. Says producer Damon Lindelof, “He was the one who first captured Ben, and now he’s behind bars as a Dharma prisoner,” with a young Ben offering him a sandwich. Future episodes fill in histories of Daniel Faraday and Miles Straum.

The show “becomes a lot more character-centric,” Lindelof says. “For those people who were more confused or scratching their heads” at the time-traveling, “it’s sort of normalized.”

A major focus is the new love triangle of Kate, Sawyer and Juliet. Juliet is living with Sawyer, mysteriously known as LaFleur, Dharma’s tan-jumpsuited security chief, in the ’70s. “Juliet’s aware that Kate’s return will cause problems,” Cuse says. Yet Jack, who vied with Sawyer for Kate and was engaged to her off the island ΓÇö still carries a torch.

The recalibration of Lost will temper the show’s most confounding season yet, a relief to ABC executives.

“We long had this idea to do time-travel storytelling,” Cuse says. “But we were afraid that once we started implementing it, we would become a more overtly genre show and that we would lose viewers.” (They did: Lost is down 18% this season and faced a big test Wednesday in the season’s first matchup against American Idol). “We kind of expected some people to be turned off.”

But Lindelof, conceding viewers were frustrated, likens Lost to coursework: “College gets harder as you go on, and you’re now taking Advanced Lost.” For those who follow the drama for its rich character entanglements, “all that really matters is that (Sawyer) likes Juliet, Juliet likes him and now Kate is back. But the real hardcore fans want mythology.”

Producers promise more answers in coming episodes: How was Sayid captured to return to the island? How did Hurley learn about the Ajera flight that brought him there? And how will Sun, Ben and pilot Frank Lapidus reunite with their castmates?
