Michael Emerson was the creepiest as Benjamin Linus. Now he's adorable as Harold Finch. He ought to get at least two votes each time.


Emerson for me for being the best in Lost.


Michael Emerson is the "person of choice" for me; terrific role, terrific acting.


Julianna margulies all the way!!!!


Julianna margulies is the best!

Philly ace

Lost or ER? Point Emerson. Good Wife or Person of Interest? Point and match to Michael Emerson! Go Ben Linus!


Michael Emerson.


This is such a hard decision as I watch the good wife and I watch p.o.i and used to watch Lost - so its Michael Emerson for.
