As a huge fan of J.J. Abrams' televsion series LOST as well as having written a previous post on fine art and photographic recreations of Da Vinci's The Last Supper, I couldn't blog about this fast enough.
ABC has released two photos of the LOST cast posing as "The Lost Supper" in which one is supposed to be able to find clues as to the character's fates in the final season.
Below are the two images, please click on them to enlarge:

We all know this is not the first television show to pose their cast as Jesus and his disciples in the famous pose, but did you know about all of these?

Yes, I know, many a blogger has written about the Last Supper Parodies or cartoons and pop culture paintings. But if you'd like to see a bunch of Last Suppers that are not parodies but instead are homages by famous artists and photographers, like Andy Warhol and David LaChapelle, check these out.
