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.

    • Michael Emerson is fantastic in everything he does. I’ve been a fan since The Practice. He’s pretty far away from “has been” status.

    • agreed. Should be that he’s “living with aspergers” not suffering.

      Otherwise, I’m super excited. I love Parenthood and Michael Emerson is a brilliant actor, he turned Ben into my favourite character on LOST

  • I love Emerson and this show but what the hell is a “bug shop” exactly? Is that something that actually exists in the real world or only in the world of “Parenthood” where a bug shop is necessary.

    • I’m going out on a limb here, but I suspect it might be a shop that sells bugs.

  • The worlds of Lost and Gilmore Girls coming together under the Parenthood roof?! Ron Howard, stop reading my diary. This has the potential to be simply epic.

  • Can’t wait! Love Michael Emerson ever since I saw him as Oscar Wilde in the play “Gross Indecencies.”. A friend of mine was also in the play, so I got to meet Michael and he is as nice as he is talented. One of the good guys who finally made it.
