Perrineau will face 'Demons' for CBS pilot


Former "Lost" cast member Harold Perrineau has sailed to a co-starring role on CBS' drama pilot "Demons."

The project, from CBS Paramount Network TV, centers on Gus, an ex-Jesuit priest-psychologist who performs exorcisms. Perrineau will play a priest who has known Gus since seminary and is his confessor, confidante and good friend.

For two seasons, Perrineau co-starred on "Lost" as single father Michael Dawson who sailed off with his son in the show's Season 2 finale.

There has been talk about Perrineau possibly returning to the Emmy-winning adventure series, but sources said the sides could not reach an agreement.

Perrineau will next be seen in the features "28 Weeks," "Gardens of the Night" and "Your Name Here." He is repped by APA.
