Who Wouldn't Want to Return to LOST?

What is this rumour I'm hearing that a former LOST castmember has declined to return to the show for its final season?

That's nuts. Besides scheduling conflicts, there's no good reason to decline an offer to appear on LOST's sixth and final season. Right?

According to E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos, this former Lostie is an original cast member, which rules out Mira Furlan (who portrayed Danielle Rousseau up to episode 4x08, "Meet Kevin Johnson" and who turned down a request to return, per's Michael Ausiello). We can also rule out Harold Perrineau, Jr., who claimed that no one has contacted him about anything related to LOST Season 6 and that he will return if asked to do so, and Ian Somerhalder, who revealed to Entertainment Weekly's Mandi Bierly that he was en route to Oahu when they spoke about The Vampire Diaries last month. Emilie de Ravin is confirmed to return in Season 6 after her Season 5 hiatus.

So, who is it?
This is all based on the assumption that "original castmember" pertains to one who had a speaking part, at least, on the pilot episode. I don't know if Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko), Michelle Rodriguez (Ana-Lucia), or Cynthia Watros (Libby) have been approached to return in Season 6, although Adewale has expressed his desire to reprise his role and I believe Cynthia is available after plans for the Gossip Girl spin-off fell through. 

So, who is it?
