The musical drama, from Marc Cherry, also stars Jesse L. Martin, Frances O'Connor and "Vampire Diaries" actress Arielle Kebbel.

Lost star Terry O'Quinn has joined the cast of Hallelujah, Marc Cherry's musical drama pilot for ABC.

The project is set in the town of Hallelujah, Tenn., which is being torn apart by the forces of good and evil. But the town's fortunes change when a mysterious stranger comes to town, bringing justice, peace and possibly restoring faith.

O'Quinn will play Del in the drama.

Last month, Jesse L. Martin became the first actor cast in the pilot, in the lead role of Jared. Frances O'Connor and Arielle Kebbel also have been cast as Ruth and Veda, respectively.

O'Quinn was previously attached to J.J. Abrams' action-drama Odd Jobs along with fellow Lost star Michael Emerson. The project, about two former black-ops cops ,was in development this past season at NBC but didn't make it to the pilot stage.

O'Quinn played John Locke on ABC's Lost, which ended its run last year. He earned three Emmy nominations, including one win, for the role. His other credits include The West Wing, Alias and JAG.
