Michael Emerson as Ben on LOST.jpg

As Ben Linus on “Lost”, Michael Emerson has surprised me week after week with what an actor can do on television. Without a doubt, his performance as Ben is one of the highlights on any network, and I’m constantly surprised by what his role calls on him to do. As I’ve said many times on Collider, I think “Lost” is the best show on television, and Michael’s work is one of the reasons I feel this way.

So when I saw him walking on the red carpet at this year’s Saturn Awards, I had a geekgasm. After all, the actors of “Lost” are always in Hawaii, so getting a chance to talk with a series regular is rare. Also, while I knew he couldn’t tell me much about the final season of “Lost”, getting to talk with him was a real thrill. So if you’re a fan of his show like I am, I’m sure you’ll love the interview. We talked about what the ride has been like for him, what was his reaction to last year’s finale, his thoughts on the final season, and I asked him what it’s like for him to go into a Starbucks…

Watch the interview after the jump:

    Hi Steve! I´m from Spain and it´s awesome to see you talk to Michael Emerson. I´m a huge fan of Lost and I´m a little bit jealous (in a good way) that you talk to so many interesting people. I also see you in the videos you make with peter sciretta and I hope both of you keep up doing it ;).

    thanks! Peter and I have been recording video blogs on some recent set visits, so while we haven’t posted one recently, we have a few that are waiting for the embargo to be lifted. Look for one very soon…

    Great! By the way, I´ve been visiting Collider for a while (i love it) and I think I haven´t seen your review about Transformers 2, cause I know you enjoy the first movie and I was wondering what is your opinion. I loved the first movie, but the second was kind of disappointment, although I enjoy the entire film, and some sequences were just amazing. I´ts difficult to describe it (and my english is not perfect) but I think that it was “too much” in every sense, in some way is a positive point, but in another……(sam´s mother made me feel very nervous). Sorry if I change the subject for a second but I would like to know your impression. Thanks for answering :)
