Personal Quote:

[about doing Unfaithful (2002)] You work four days, and then one line is left when you see it. Demoralizing. See more »

Trivia:

On Lost (2004), he played Ben Linus, the son of Roger Linus, played by Jon Gries, who is actually 3 years the junior of Emerson. The age difference is explicable because Roger is first seen in flashbacks to Ben's birth and childhood. Ben's mother was played by Carrie Preston, who in addition to being (like Gries) somewhat younger than Emerson, is also his real-life wife. See more »
