***BREAKING CASTING NEWS FROM NEW YORK COMIC CON***

 

LOST’S MARK PELLEGRINO TO GUEST STAR ON Person Of Interest

 

 

 

NEW YORK (October 13, 2012) — Lost fans, get ready for a mini-reunion on Person of Interest (Thursdays 9/8c on CBS), as Mark Pellegrino (the enigmatic Jacob from the fan-favorite drama) joins Harold Finch (series star and fellow Lost alum Michael Emerson) in an upcoming episode (airdate to be announced).

 

Fans at New York Comic Con got the intel first during the Person Of Interest panel session today with cast members Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman and guest star Amy Acker, when creator/executive producer Jonathan Nolan announced that Pellegrino would be guest starring in an upcoming episode of the highly anticipated drama as an edgy and charming head of a popular publishing empire.

 

 

  • In addition to appearing on the genre hit Lost, Pellegrino played a multiple episode/season arc as Lucifer on The CW’s Supernatural (Wednesdays 9/8c The CW). Pellegrino was also a featured star as a vampire in Being Human.

 

  • Pellegrino was most recently seen on Warner Bros. Television’s new hit action-adventure series Revolution (Mondays 10/9c NBC), produced — like Lost and Person Of Interest — by Bad Robot Productions

    That was a lot. The guy sure loves a guest-star stint.

    I knew him from LOST ans then he started poping up everywhere. In 2009, I started seeing Jacob and the Man in Black in LOST, The Good Wife, and Supernatural (by the way, where’s Titus Welliver? He was really good on The Good Wife and LOST).

    Pellegrino also appeared on Lethal Weapon 3, Jurrasic Parks 2, Natioanl Treasure 1, and The Number 23, among others. Though lately he seems more focused on TV than film.

    He’ll always be Jacob to me :D

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Rooks and Justin121: Absolutely. This guy is everywhere – like Mark Sheppard. Testimony to how good he is as one of the industry’s top “heavy” actors.

  • JV

    I love watching Pellegrino. As has been mentioned, the dude is guest starring everywhere and he always manages to nail his roles and make each one memorable. Just discovered he also played Rip’s (Hulk Hogan) younger brother in No Holds Barred.

    I think we could start a 6 Degrees of Mark Pellegrino game soon…
