Terry O'Quinn will team up with Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson in a telepic based on true story 'Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story'.
After his strong performance as the pivotal character on "Lost", Terry O'Quinn aka Locke in the dead sci-fi series, is jumping into a TV movie called "Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story". The project is picked up by Lifetime which has also hired Taraji P. Henson as one of the lead cast.
Instead of being the villain, O'Quinn will be playing Mark Miller who has a charitable organization called The American Association for Lost Children. Through his network, Miller will help Henson's Tiffany Rubin to find her six-year-old son Kobe who has been abducted by his biological father and taken from Queens, New York to Seoul, South Korea.
Production will begin in August in Vancouver but no premiere date is announced yet, E! Online reported.
O'Quinn's fellow "Lost" stars have also been flocking new projects after the show ended this May. Henry Ian Cusick has scored a guest starring appearance on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" while Evangeline Lilly has long secured a place in feature film "Real Steel". Matthew Fox has "Mass Effect" and "Billy Smoke" on the horizon while Daniel Dae Kim is a regular on CBS' remake of "Hawaii Five-0".
