Ben Linus and Jesus
join forces to fight crime

That seemed to me the most appropriate title for the news that I just saw on IO9, that Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel will be the stars of a new J. J. Abrams show, “Person of Interest,” on CBS this Fall.

Jim Caviezel played Jesus in The Passion of the Christ, as well as starring in the science fiction film Frequency. Michael Emerson is best known as Benjamin Linus, killer of Jacob and then right-hand man of his replacement, Hugo Reyes, aka Hurley. J. J. Abrams rarely does anything that doesn’t bring spirituality and/or religion into the picture. And so a combination of this sort seems promising – definitely worth mentioning here, but also a show with a reasonable chance that it will provide things to blog about in the future.

At the moment, it sounds like Minority Report meets The Equalizer.
