'Lost's' Michael Emerson lines up Woody Allen gig

michael-emerson-gi.jpg Michael Emerson, the actor who wormed his way into viewers' hearts as the wormy Ben Linus on "Lost" and now co-stars in CBS' "Person of Interest," joins the cast of Woody Allen's next project, reports Deadline.

Details on the yet-to-be-titled movie remain sketchy. We know the cast includes Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bradley Cooper and Bobby Cannavale and will shoot in New York (not Copenhagen or San Francisco, as previously rumored). Beyond that, we're in the dark.

Emerson has worked with Allen before: He appeared in Allen's 2001 short film, "Sounds from a Town I Love."

On June 22, Allen's film "To Rome with Love" hit theaters with its own ensemble cast, which includes Baldwin, Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg and Penelope Cruz.
