. . . Or was he the centaur from Lord of the Rings? We're a little shaky on the details. Anyway, Dominic Monaghan, one of the actors having all that weird gnome sex on Dr. Who, also spent a good long stretch in TV land on Lost, where he played the bald-headed paraplegic named after a 17th century political philosopher who has special powers.
