Michael Emerson, sensational as the complex long-time Islander Benjamin Linus on “Lost”, will reunite with the show’s co-creator J.J Abrams on his (well, J.J’s executive producing) new series “Persons of Interest”, says TV Line.

Emerson was expected to be a part of another Abram’s series “Odd Jobs”, which would’ve teamed the actor with former co-star Terry O’Quinn. That series has been pushed back so, needless to say, rather than starve Emerson accepted an offer to do “Interest”.

The CBS drama, created by Jonah ‘brother of Christopher’ Nolan, fixes on an ex-CIA Agent, presumed dead, who turns up alive and teams with a mysterious billionaire (Emerson) to solve the violent crimes.
