Not a Priest, But He Plays One on TV

"Lost"'s Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was invited by Senator Fred Hemmings to deliver a prayer yesterday to open the Senate floor at the Hawaii state legislature. Hemmings invited the devout Buddhist actor after watching a "Lost" episode featuring his character's story. Akinnuoye-Agbaje plays Mr. Eko, a drug lord posing as a Catholic priest.

According to an interview by AP, Akinnuoye-Agbaje called his participation in yesterday's prayer "the pinnacle" of his career, and said that lawmakers should try to mesh secular and mystical law, and be one with the hearts of the people.
