'Lost' stars take on new roles

It's been nearly a year since the final episode of "Lost," and as expected, several cast members are returning to series television in the fall.

Joining "Hawaii Five-O's" Daniel Dae Kim on CBS is Michael Emerson in the J.J. Abrams series "Person of Interest," airing on Thursday nights at 9 ET/PT in the fall.

Emerson plays yet another mysterious character, this time a man who somehow possesses a list of people in danger of committing violent crimes and enlists Jim Caviezel's character to stop them.

Paintball is back on 'Community!'

If there's one word that's synonymous with "Community," it's "paintball."

Last season's episode involving a paintball war remains one of the most popular in the show's history, and the moment it really started to gain a following of devoted viewers who can't wait to see which unexpected direction the show will go in next.

"Community's" two-part season finale starts tonight, and it includes special guest star Josh Holloway, best known as Sawyer from "Lost," in his first role after the hit series ended last year.

Second thoughts and second guessing on 'Parenthood'

There’s some backpedaling going on amongst the Bravermans.

They're second guessing themselves and each other, and it doesn't look like anything good will come of it.

Zeek was having second thoughts about how important it is for Drew to see his father. I can understand that because Seth is an idiot, even if he is sober - I can't imagine what he's like drunk.

Josh Holloway joins 'Mission: Impossible 4'

Getting a post-"Lost" gig was clearly not an issue for Josh Holloway. The 41-year-old actor is joining the fourth “Mission: Impossible" movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Although Holloway's popped up in a few indies, it’s the actor’s first studio picture. He's currently in final negotiations to appear in the film as a member of a secret agent task force headed up by "M:I" star Tom Cruise.

Holloway joins an ever-growing cast, which already includes Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Vladimir Mashkov, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg.

J.J. Abrams, who served as an executive producer on "Lost," is also producing "M:I-4" along with Cruise and Paula Wagner. The production team has reportedly been scouting locations in Vancouver, Prague and Dubai, and are aiming for a December, 2011 release.

'Lost's' Emerson and O'Quinn – together again?

'Lost's' Emerson and O'Quinn – together again?

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.
