I am, once again, informing you that Michael Emerson was NOT able to meet his obligation to chat with fans. This time, he was supposed to answer fans questions over at reddit.com. A tweet from @reddit_AMA informed us that the event will be rescheduled. I guess Michael Emerson must be extremely busy filming Person of Interest. Things should calm down in the end of spring when the show is wingding down. As always, as soon as I find out something, I’ll post it here.
Apparently, CBS pulled the URL that directed fans to the site wherein Michael Emerson was going to chat with his fans over Twitter. Moreover, the Facebook event that was also going to direct the fans to the chat event was removed.
I apologize for this inconvenience. I don’t know why this event was cancelled nor why CBS and Person of Interest production staff chose not to address the cancellation with the fans. I think that this was a disservice for the many Michael Emerson fans. Whether it was Michael Emerson who chose not to do the chat—he has indicated through many of his personal correspondences with his fans (via snail mail), as well as through his many interviews, that he is not techno savvy—or whether other circumstances made it impossible to continue with the plan, it would have been the right thing to inform the fan.
