Former “Lost” cast member Harold Perrineau has landed a co-starring role on CBS’ drama pilot “Demons,” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The project, from CBS Paramount Network TV, centers on Gus, an ex-Jesuit priest-psychologist who performs exorcisms. Perrineau will play a priest who has known Gus since seminary and is his confessor, confidante and good friend.
For two seasons, Perrineau co-starred on “Lost” as single father Michael Dawson who sailed off with his son in the show’s Season 2 finale.
There has been talk about Perrineau possibly returning to the ABC series, but trade says the sides could not reach an agreement.
Perrineau will next be seen in the features 28 Weeks Later, Gardens of the Night and Your Name Here.
