Lost’s Terry O’Quinn to Star in Hallelujah


If you were holding out for a Locke-Ben reunion this television season, you may want to compose a last-ditch prayer to the island deity in charge of network casting. Despite reports a few months ago that Lost stars Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson would reteam for the suburban hit-man dramedy Odd Jobs, the delays in developing that project have freed both up for pilot season, and the actors have gone their separate ways: Emerson was already locked up to star in Person of Interest for Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams, and now TVLine reports that O'Quinn will play the villainous millionaire in Hallelujah, Marc Cherry's musical drama about a town transformed by a charismatic stranger. The downside: Odd Jobs looks like a goner. The upside: Locke singing! [TVLine]
