I Heart Michael Emerson (aka Ben Linus)

Just happened across two clips from Michael Emerson's appearance on Jimmy Fallon's Late Night show this week. Fallon dug up a couple of illustrations Emerson did when he was a freelance illustrator for the Boston Globe. They were as nightmarish and creepy as Ben Linus is on Lost.

Fallon wrapped up the interview by begging Emerson to read "Little Boy Blue" in as sinister a fashion as he could muster because Emerson does "creepy" so well. (Link to the second part of the interview is here.)

During the first part of the interview, Emerson talked about his character on Lost and how he believes that Ben Linus is the most beaten (as in physically abused) character on TV and challenged anyone to come up with another character who's been smacked around as much as Ben.
