Some fans of "Lost" would watch Emmy winners Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn read out of the phone book. And, although Emerson's character Ben may have killed O'Quinn's Locke on the show, Emerson told CNN back in May that the two get along famously off-camera.
They also spoke openly about trying to work together again sometime. Well, thanks to "Lost" co-creator J.J. Abrams, that dream may come to fruition, according to NYMag.com.
The site reports that the actors would play former black-ops agents (sounding somewhat like the comic book and upcoming film, "Red") in a comedy tentatively titled "Odd Jobs."
EW.com also reports that at least three networks are interested in the show.
Would you watch a new show with this pair, and do you like the concept for the show so far? Sound off below.
I would love a show like this with such great actors!
That's a no brainer YES
It's Yooper, not Upper Karen..
I would totally watch it!! I especially love Terry O'Quinn. He deserves more credit than he has received for the amazing job he did on Lost. He's amazing in everything.
Can't happen soon enough!!! The chemistry between them is great!....the talent is there!....the bond of friendship is there!....and the fans will be there!....So what are we waiting for? Hurry,
Who WOULDN'T watch anything they were in together?! They are two of the most amazingly compatible acting duos to have gifted our televisions. I really hope something does work out for us fans.
I'd watch these guys do the Maytag repairman commercials, for pete's sake. As Picard would say, "make it so!"
Are you kidding? I'd watch them anytime!!! Two such gifted actors!
Yes! Yes, "Lost" was terrific and yes, they had great chemistry, and yes, I'd watch any show with talent like that. (And any network would be crazy to pass up a show that brings in "Lost" fans. I don't think there will be another phenomenon like that for a few years. Ratings magic. Heck, I'm even going to watch "Hawaii Five-O," and that is not my type of show at all!)
No, no – wrong pair. Even though there are a million cop shows on TV, we want Sawyer and Miles to play the characters they had in the final season. Don't get me wrong, I love Mr. Quinn and Mr. Emerson and would definitely watch them in another show, but Mr. Abrams needs to know the priority should be Sawyer and Miles!
I am one of those people who would watch either of them read the phone book. I can't imagine any series more wonderful (after LOST). Please oh please!!!!!!!!!!!
They are terrific actors and they play off each other so well. Their scenes on "Lost" were always entertaining and I would love to see them togethere again.
That would be the greatest thing on TV since... Well, since Lost
I would watch Terry O'Quinn wash his laundry. He is remarkable. There is nothing this UPPER from Michigan cant do! Comedy and Black Ops sound like a great mix.
Answer to last paragraph in article: YES and YES!
I would watch this show, I love the deadpan acting of Emerson, he is great. O'Quinn isn't bad either.
It's a no brainer... make it happen!
Oh please yes, that would eighteen kinds of awesome!
Although I think you should let Michael Emerson break some noses instead of having his own face punched repeatedly for a chance.
Black Ops odd couple. Bring it on!
Absolutely! It would be a treat to watch these two in action together again.
Absolutely! I enjoyed watching them in LOST.
I'd watch it in a heartbeat. Michael Emmerson is one of the best TV actors I've seen in a long time, and Terry O'Quinn can hold his own as well.
I would watch any kind of show with these two wonderful actors in it. Great news and can't happen fast enough.
