An actor who had been “Lost” will soon be a “Person of Interest.”
Mark Pellegrino played “Jacob” the island oracle on the second season of the ABC drama. He will be a guest star on the CBS series soon. Pellegrino will reunite with Michael Emerson, who was also on the island drama as Jacob’s blind devotee Ben.
Emerson, Jim Caviezel, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Champman and Amy Acker, members of the cast, and executive producer Jonathan Nolan, appeared Saturday at New York Comic-Con.
Pellegrino will appear on the show as an edgy and charming publishing empire head.
Pellegrino recently appeared on NBC’s “Revolution,” which was created by Eric Kripke. Pellegrino also regularly appeared on “NYPD Blue,” “Dexter” and “The Closer.” He also played Lucifer on “Supernatural,” which also was created by Kripke. Ken Leung has also been signed for season two, and is also a “Lost” alumni.
Julian Sands (“Smallville,” “24”) was recently cast as a villain on “Person of Interest.” He played an international adversary of Reese (Caviesel) on one episode, and the producers reportedly would like to bring him back.
“Person of Interest,” which revolves around a former CIA agent preventing violent crimes in New York City is on Thursdays on CBS at 9 p.m.
