The John Locke/Ben Linus reunion just might be on

By Jen Chaney

"Hey, Locke. What do ya say we do a show together?" (ABC)

Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson have publicly discussed the idea of working on a series together post-"Lost." Now it's sounding like there is a chance it will happen.

Not sure how this slipped by us, but New York Magazine recently reported that J.J. Abrams and two of his "Alias" collaborators -- Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec -- are pitching a dramedy to the networks that will indeed star O'Quinn and Emerson.

When Emerson discussed this possibility with us over the summer, he said that a number of concepts for a possible series were floating around. But based on the NY Mag item, it sounds like the working title is "Odd Jobs" and that there is a good chance it may get picked up.

To say this "moves our island" is an understatement. The best, greatest hope? That "Odd Jobs" not only lands on television, but gets programmed back-to-back with that possible "Rockford Files" remake starring Josh Holloway.

If this happens, there is a REAL possibility I might explode with joy.
