Former 'Lost' stars: Where they are on TV today

Our favorite actors from "Lost" are popping up everywhere in prime time this fall, including Terry O'Quinn (John Locke) as a devilish building owner in "666 Park Avenue," Jorge Garcia (Hurley) as a fairy-tale giant on "Once Upon a Time" and Harold Perrineau (Michael) as the most ruthless villain "Sons of Anarchy" -- or any other show -- has ever seen.

Here's when and where to find 14 "Lost" alumni in their new series:

    Terry O'Quinn

    "Lost" role: John Locke
    Latest role: Gavin Doran on "666 Park Avenue"

    Locke was a little power-mad on "Lost," but O'Quinn seems to have the power of life and death in his new supernatural drama as a Machiavellian owner of a posh New York building where the residents are granted their wishes -- at a cost. O'Quinn told Vulture that the character is "one-note" in the premiere, but to stay tuned: "It’s fun to play bad guys. They have better secrets."

    "666 Park Avenue" premieres Sept. 30 at 10 p.m. on ABC.

    Michael Emerson

    "Lost" role: Devious mastermind Ben
    New role: Harold Finch on "Person of Interest"

    At the end of "Lost," everyone had atoned for their sins enough to make it to a blissful afterlife, everyone but that slippery devil, Ben. On Emerson's new show, he's just as mysterious and shadowy, but this time his manipulations are for the greater good. Even in another life, the actor is still paying off Ben's karmic debt. We love whenever other "Lost" stars show up, like psychic Miles (Ken Leung, who appeared in the season two premiere) and possibly-more-evil-than-Ben Charles Widmore (Alan Dale).

    "Person of Interest" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on CBS.

    Daniel Dae Kim

    "Lost" role: Jin Kwon
    Latest role: Chin Ho Kelly on "Hawaii Five-0"

    Actor Daniel Dae Kim didn't have to move far to find work once "Lost" wrapped up filming in Hawaii. He quickly landed the role of Chin Ho Kelly, an ex-Honolulu police detective on CBS' remake of the classic show of the same name, which kicked off its third season this fall.

    "Hawaii Five-0" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on CBS.

    Jorge Garcia

    "Lost" role: Hugo "Hurley" Reyes
    Latest role: The Giant on "Once Upon a Time"

    "Once's" creators, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, wrote some of the best Hurley episodes of "Lost," so it makes sense they'd ask Garcia to fill the oversize boots of the fairy-tale giant from "Jack and the Beanstalk." We can only hope he'll have scenes with Belle (Emilie de Ravin), who played Claire on "Lost."

    "Once Upon a Time" returns Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

    Emilie de Ravin

    "Lost" role: Claire Littleton
    New role: Belle on "Once Upon a Time"

    On "Lost," Claire went from a sweet, if stressed, young mom to crazy, wild-haired jungle dweller after someone stole her baby. The island'll do that to you! De Ravin also has had her share of hardship so far as lovely Belle on "Once Upon a Time" -- once kept prisoner by Regina, she's now free and under Mr. Gold's protection. She made her first appearance last season, but you'll see a lot more of her in season two as she's been bumped up to series regular.

    "Once Upon a Time" season two premieres Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

    Naveen Andrews

    "Lost" role: Sayid Jarrah
    Latest role: Lord Akbari on "Sinbad"

    Even though he's now playing an out-and-out villain, "Sinbad" sounds a lot more lighthearted than Sayid's journey on "Lost." Andrews plays the hero's arch-nemesis who (much like Harold Perrineau) is seeking revenge for the death of his child. As the actor told Sky 1, once he saw the costumes, he decided to "just have fun" with the role.

    The 12-part BBC fantasy series will air in America on the Syfy channel in April.

    Elizabeth Mitchell

    "Lost" role: Juliet Burke
    Latest role: Rachel on "Revolution"

    Mitchell is a regular on the new futuristic series from "Lost" mastermind J.J. Abrams and "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke. She plays the mother of main character Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), and flashbacks so far have shown that she was quite a fighter.

    "Revolution" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC.

    Yunjin Kim

    "Lost" role: Sun Kwon
    Latest role: Karen on "Mistresses"

    At first Sun was a shy, dutiful wife, but viewers quickly learned there was a lot more to her than met the eye, including an affair and a secret plan to leave her husband. On Kim's upcoming new series "Mistresses," about the "scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of girlfriends," she'll play a therapist who gets overly involved with a patient.

    "Mistresses" premieres in 2013 on ABC.

    Harold Perrineau

    "Lost" role: Michael Dawson
    Latest role: Damon Pope on "Sons of Anarchy"

    Michael did terrible things to get his son back on "Lost," but in Perrineau's first "SOA" episode, in which he plays a drug kingpin, he set a rival's daughter on fire as retribution for his own murdered child. As the actor told The Hollywood Reporter, "It’s not that different from 'Lost' because I’m playing a grieving father. This is just a grieving father with means and a bit of a mean streak.”

    "Sons of Anarchy" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.

    Jeremy Davies

    "Lost" role: Daniel Faraday
    Latest role: Dickie Bennett on "Justified"

    Davies, whose Faraday died a tragic death that ranked as one of "Lost's" saddest, does a 180 on "Justified" as the murderous, weed-dealing nemesis of Timothy Olyphant's Marshal Raylan Givens. Dickie and Raylan's differences go deeper than mere law: Their families have been feuding since Prohibition. Davies debuted in the recurring role in the second season, but his 2012 Emmy win for guest actor might inspire a few fans to catch up.

    "Justified" returns for a fourth season on FX in January.

    Zuleikha Robinson

    "Lost" role: Ilana Verdansky
    Latest role: Roya Hammad on "Homeland"

    In season six of "Lost," Ilana picked up Sayid in a bar, then slapped handcuffs on him since she'd been hired by Jacob to take him back to the island. In Robinson's new gig, she'll have a similarly duplicitous role as a journalist who's secretly working for terrorist Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban). "Homeland" co-creator Alex Gansa told Digital Spy: "She's a master manipulator whose cover as a reporter allows her access to people."

    "Homeland" season two premieres on Sept. 30 at 10 p.m. on Showtime.

    Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

    "Lost" role: Mr. Eko
    New role: Deacon Crane on "Hunted"

    Eko was a cruel drug lord who found redemption on the island. Time will tell if Akinnuoye-Agbaje's (left, pictured with Stephen Dillane) new part as a member of an elite private security firm on "Hunted" will find him on the side of good or evil. "Hunted's" eight-episode series stars Melissa George (of JJ Abrams' "Alias") as an operative who was betrayed by her own team.

    "Hunted" premieres Oct. 19 at 10 p.m. on Cinemax.

    New role: Guest on "Scandal"

    Fischler -- who's also appeared on "Grimm" (pictured), "Criminal Minds" and "Mad Men" -- will appear in multiple episodes as a whistleblower who comes to Olivia for help. Sadly, season one regular and former "Lost" co-star Henry Ian Cusick, better known as the time-traveling Desmond, won't be returning for season two of "Scandal," but he will appear in season five of "The Mentalist."

    "Scandal" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.

    Latest role: Zarra on "Switched at Birth"

    Raymonde -- who had her own "stolen at birth" saga as Danielle Rousseau's kidnapped daughter on "Lost" -- began her recurring role on "Switched" as street artist Zarra on Sept. 10. She befriends Bay (Vanessa Marano) and "challenges (her) in different ways," executive producer Lizzy Weiss told TVGuide.com about the character.

    "Switched at Birth" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
