Lost's Michael Emerson to Guest on Parenthood

Michael Emerson has landed his first post-Lost acting gig — a guest shot on NBC’s Parenthood.

Emerson will play Andy, a bug expert with Asperger’s Syndrome who crosses paths with Max (Max Burkholder), who also has Asperger’s. The episode will air in the spring.

Emerson is already in business with NBC. Along with fellow Lost alum Terry O’Quinn, he is attached to star in a special ops drama project in development at the Peacock network executive produced by J.J. Abrams.
