I recently posted a link to Carrie Preston’s chat with the people of Super Knocked Up. In the post I had a video of the entire hour-long chat (which I recommend that you watch because it is funny). Michael Emerson makes a cameo appearance in the video. If, however, you do not want to wait till mark 55:29 to see him, Cindy4Ever of Tumblr posted this video for your enjoyment:

Michael Emerson’s wife, Carrie Preston from True Blood and The Good Wife joined the cast of the Web series Super Knocked Up along with her DARWIN Web series colleagues, Karl Kenzler and Chris Gerson for an online, live-streaming chat. They chatted about what life-coach advice they would give to fictional characters, what Disney characters they would put in other fictional universes, and they played a fun game of ScatterMovies! Michael Emerson made special cameo. If you want to skip a lot of the chitchat, Michael Emerson appears at 55:29 frame. Enjoy.

The New York Times has a wonderful article about Michael Emerson and his wife, Carrie Preston. Here it is for your enjoyment:

A Farmer’s Breakfast, and Then a Wander

the actress Carrie Preston, 46, of “True Blood” and “The Good Wife.”

When the actor Michael Emerson, 59, walks around Manhattan, it’s not unusual for people to stop him and ask if he’ll pose for a picture. The television shows “Lost” and, currently, “Person of Interest” have made his spiky hair, thick-rimmed glasses and long sideburns a giveaway. He takes it in stride, even on Sunday, which he designates a day of leisure, reserved for meandering, cultural events and time with his wife, the actress Carrie Preston, 46 — who herself is recognized for her roles in “True Blood” and “The Good Wife” — and her extended family. The couple live with their rescue dog, Chumley, 4, near Columbus Circle.

HELLO, SUNSHINE Sunday is the most domestic day of the week. It’s the day when I feel the least pressure to get anything done. We get up fairly late, I suppose, around 9 o’clock. We throw open the shades that make the room dark and we make the bed. We’re like a synchronized team. We each have a shade to raise.

SQUARE MEAL Then we divide forces. Carrie gives Chumley his morning walk and I prepare the breakfast. Frankly, she’s sharper in the morning and I’m probably the better cook, so it makes sense. Plus, that relieves her of having to do the late-night walk, which is maybe a little more sinister. I make kind of a heavy, farmer’s, protein breakfast. Bacon and eggs, that kind of thing. She used to join me in that, but lately she’s making these green smoothies.

READING AND WRITING Then we take care of the paperwork, or I should say the electronic work. I may read the paper for a bit while she starts on the computer. Then I’ll join her and I’ll get my laptop out and try to answer correspondence and get a handle on the week to come.

SHIFT GEARS Around noon, we’re still in our jammies, and that seems wrong somehow, so we need to get crackin’ and someone needs to shower first and then we get out of the house. She usually has more organized activities than I: a get-together with lady friends, or a rehearsal or a reading, or a meeting about one of her many film or TV projects. I dawdle longer.

MAN ABOUT TOWN If the weather’s fair, I like to take Chumley to Central Park and just walk around, do a bit of promenading with him. I dress more formally than a lot of the other boys do. If I’m going to be out and about on the town, I will generally wear a tie and a vest. Not necessarily a jacket.

FANS APPROACH I get recognized. It happens regularly, by two sets of fans: younger people who are fans of “Lost” and older people, oftentimes their parents, who are fans of “Person of Interest.” But now, I think the balance has shifted. Carrie’s so present on so many shows, with her vivid red hair, that people pick her out. Now I’m the one that people, they say, “Excuse me, could you take our picture?

POSSIBLE DETOUR My default mode is to wander. But if I see an interesting little show or some kind of artwork or some kind of play, I may go to see that as well. I went recently to see a show of Czechoslovakian pop-up books. It was at the Grolier Club. There’s all kinds of funny little exhibition and gallery spaces around this town.

VISITING Sunday is, more often than not, family dinner night. So we go to the in-laws, who have kids, and we’ll either order in or somebody will cook. We pick up the peripheral goods on our stroll down Ninth Avenue. You know, baguettes and beer and red wine, and whatever is required.

WHO’S ON TV? We’ll watch some TV event. It could be a show that either Carrie or I have a role in that everyone hasn’t seen already. Often it’ll be “The Good Wife,” which is on Sunday nights anyway. If Carrie’s on, we definitely make time for that. Or everybody will watch that week’s “Person of Interest.” There’s a lot of hooting and laughing and snide comments. And we get to do the behind-the-scenes commentary.

FIRST TO BED It grieves me on Sundays to have to cut family night short, because it’s one of the chief pleasures of the week. But I have just never adjusted to the early mornings of the TV world. If I have to be in bed at 9, that’s just too grim. It’s too grim to go down and have a bite to eat and then go to bed before the schoolchildren.

SUNDAY NIGHT BLUES I still get the old, childhood, Sunday night feeling. The end of playtime and the beginning of responsibility comes over you. The Sunday night blues. It never goes away. I’ll take a Benadryl maybe. A Benadryl and a dull book.

Michael Emerson revealed in his newest interview in The Loop, Canada’s TVGuide, that he will NOT be attending the LOST Reunion scheduled this September in 2014.  He claims that  to be very involved with his CBS hit (Person of Interest) to have time to make the event. This new information will sadden a lot fans who have booked or are thinking of booking their lodgings for that event. Here’s the article for your reading information:

While Tuesday’s episode of Person of Interest (“Last Call”)the first one back after the Olympics hiatus–appears to centre mainly on Finch (Michael Emerson) and his efforts to go undercover as a 911 operator, don’t expect a reappearance from the love of his Finch’s life, Grace (Carrie Preston, True Blood). Not yet at least.

At a recent junket for Person of Interest and a number of other Warner Bros. shows, Emerson told TV Guide Canada that it’s entirely possible for a Grace/Finch reunion in the future. In fact, he said, it seems inevitable

“Certainly the Harold and Grace storyline is not over,” Emerson said without hesitation when asked about Preston’s future with the show.

“It’s a question of scheduling,” he added. “[Preston's] day job is True Blood for HBO. They need her attention and her services probably most of the time. But some day that show will be over and maybe she will be more available…”

As POI fans will recall, Preston was last seen in the November 2013 episode “God Mode.” At this moment in time, Grace assumes that her former fiancé, Finch, is dead, with him having previously faked his death to protect her from the dangers that come with knowing about The Machine. If Preston were to appear in a future episode, Grace would either have to learn that he’s actually alive, or simply be seen in flashbacks.

At this moment, Preston is busy playing Arlene Bellefleur on the set of True Blood. She’s also done a number of cameo spots this year, appearing on recent episodes of The Following and The Good Wife. Her schedule should open up a bit by the end of this season, however, seeing as her Following arc wrapped nearly as soon as it begun, and The Good Wife is prepping to finale in the spring. Plus, as Emerson previously alluded to, True Blood has announced that this will be its final season.

While his wife is shooting various shows, Emerson remains tied up with everything POI. He’s so involved in the CBS hit, in fact, that it looks like he won’t be able to make another much-awaited reunion–the Lost 10-year reunion–happen.

“I would love to be there, but I can tell you right now that’s it’s not going to work out,” Emerson, who played Ben Linus on Lost, told the journalists attending the New York junket with regards to appearing at a previously scheduled Paleyfest-hosted commemorative event. “It’s in March, I think, and I will be here shooting.”

When it comes down to it, it sounds like he’s a one-show, and one-woman, man.
