IGN TV Gets Villainous With Michael Emerson

Lost's Ben Linus talks to us about his connection to The Island.
by Matt Fowler

February 24, 2009 - It's not often that we here at IGN TV get to march into the heart of darkness, but this past week I had a chance to speak with the winner of IGN TV's Top Villain of '08, Benjamin Linus himself – Lost's Michael Emerson. Linus is a complex character, but he's also been our "constant." Because Ben always seems to know more than he's sharing, we as an audience are able to put our faith behind a show that's filled with secrets. The fact that Ben seems to know what's going on sets our hearts and minds at ease whenever we find ourselves getting overwhelmed with the "unknown." Michael Emerson's performance, which manages a tremendous balance between petty jealousy to irreverent malice, is definitely something that brings us back to the show each week. Even if we do wind up, occasionally, wanting to beat his character in the face with a large piece of plywood.
