Lost’s Michael Emerson Wants to Guest Star on True Blood

September 25, 2009 by  

Carrie Preston and Michael EmersonCarrie Preston, who plays red-headed waitress Arlene Fowler on True Blood, has much more sense about men than her married-four-times character. This month, she celebrated her 11th anniversary to actor Michael Emerson.

Carrie attended the Emmys on Sunday night to support Emerson, who has been nominated three years for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. This year, he finally won, for his portrayal of the manipulative Benjamin Linus on Lost.

At an after-party, Extra spoke to Carrie and Michael, where he said that he would like to appear on True Blood in the future. Carrie has been on Lost, where she played the part of Ben’s mother in flashbacks. So, to bring that full circle, Michael thinks it would funny if he played Arlene’s father.

Truthfully, though, Michael says he would be happy to do almost any role:

“I would go on any Alan Ball show to do just about anything. I will be the face in the window, I will be the cab driver…I don’t want to be a vampire.”

Rather than a supe, Michael offers that maybe he could just be “a funny human.” People are so used to seeing him portray evil characters, Carrie agrees that he should just be a good guy on True Blood.

Michael coyly responded, “Perhaps I could be bitten in a strange place,” to which Carrie replied, laughing, “That’s for later!”

Definitely a very cute couple. Surely Alan Ball will at some point think of a character for which he could use this talented actor!
