Michael Emerson Admits 'Lost' Confuses Him

Michael Emerson as Ben Linus might just be the most manipulative and confusing character on television. Emerson joined Lost to do a guest shot and his emergence as the primary villain ( or maybe he's the hero?) is the stuff that an actor's dreams are made of.

You want facts about this season's finale? Would you really trust the man who plays Ben no matter what he told you? One true fact, the round glasses are pretty much like the ones he wears in real life. Another certainty is that you won't get Michael to disrespect Ben.

Q: How would you describe your character?

A: Ben is intelligent and he is an operator. He's a great student of psychology and he knows how to work people. He is sometimes very ruthless. We've seen that. Yet, to counterbalance that, we've seen him genuinely grieve the loss of a daughter, probably the loss of his own childhood or the loss of a chance to live a decent romantic life that he sees other people have. And of course he doesn't have a happy relationship with members of the opposite sex, either. So he's kind of alone.
