Come hell or high water Terry O'Quinn is going to find a new steady paycheck from a network. After wading through guest roles on shows for years, O'Quinn finally got the part that vaulted him into the mainstream, that of John Locke in ABC's Lost. That show brought him to a wider audience than ever before, but he still doesn't have a new regular job on the tube. (O'Quinn's been playing in episodes of Hawaii Five-O as a cop, but his run is not scheduled to last past the season.)
But the network demi-gods of programming are trying their best to make the stars align for Terry O'Quinn. This latest opportunity comes once again from ABC, and in the form of a pilot/potential series called 666 Park Avenue.
In it O'Quinn would play the owner of the apartment building the show is titled after. He wouldn't be the main character; that would go to a young married couple who move into the building and begin to experience unexplained paranormal phenomena. The show is based on a series of books written by Gabriella Pierce.
Shooting on the Warner Bros.-produced pilot is scheduled to begin shortly. Networks usually make a decision whether to pick up a pilot and turn it into a series around May/June.
