'Person of Interest' video: 'Lost's' Michael Emerson goes vigilante for J.J. Abrams
J.J. Abrams reunites with "Lost" star Michael Emerson for the new CBS series, "Person of Interest," in the fall.
Emerson plays Mr. Finch, a wealthy genius who believes he knows the identities of people who will cause violent crimes.
Finch pulls Reese (played by James Caviezel) out of obscurity for the skills he possesses from his formal gig in covert operations for the CIA. The two go all vigilante to track down Finch's "persons of interest" before they can actually commit their crimes.
Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson ("The Curious Case of Benjamin Button") plays an NYPD officer who's on to Finch and Reese.
Executive produced by Abrams with a pilot written by Jonah Nolan ("The Dark Knight"), there's a bit of Batman in this series without the mask.

First impressions? Thrilled to see a mini "Lost" reunion?
