Well, that didn't take long at all.
Despite fan fears that we might not see any of our beloved Losties on television for a good long while, sources have confirmed that Terry O'Quinn has just signed on to a new TV project:
Terry has been cast opposite The Curious Case of Benjamin Button star Taraji P. Henson in the upcoming Lifetime movie, Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.
This is his first role since Lost, and Terry is most definitely playing a good guy this time around.
Production begins next month in Vancouver. A rep for Lifetime has confirmed this casting news.
Terry (John Locke/Man in Black) is the third series regular from Lost to be cast in a new TV project, following Daniel Dae Kim (Jin), who's coming to the new Hawaii Five-O and Nestor Carbonell (Richard Alpert) who will appear on Psych. No rest for the talented!

According to Lifetime, Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story is based on the true story of Tiffany Rubin (Henson) and the daring rescue of her six-year-old son, Kobe, after he was abducted by his biological father and taken from his home in Queens, New York, all the way to Seoul, South Korea. With the help of Mark Miller (O'Quinn) and his charitable organization The American Association for Lost Children, Tiffany was able to travel to Korea to execute a high-stakes plan to bring her son home.
