The Emmy-winning actor, who played John Locke on ‘Lost’, has landed a lead role in the upcoming Lifetime movie ‘Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.’
According to E! Online, O’Quinn joins ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ co-star Taraji P. Henson in the upcoming TV movie. Cameras are set to roll next month in Vancouver.
‘Taken From Me’ tells the true story of Tiffany Rubin (Henson), a mother who sets out to rescue her six-year-old son after his father kidnaps him and takes him from Queens, New York all the way to Seoul, South Korea.
O’Quinn will play Mark Miller, the head of The American Association for Lost Children, an organization that helps Henson find her son and travel to South Korea to get him back.
The Lifetime project marks O’Quinn’s first TV role since ‘Lost’ ended its six-season run in May.
Last February, it was reported that O’Quinn was shopping around a new show about two suburban hit men starring him and ‘Lost’ co-star Michael Emerson. A network has yet to pick up the pitch.
