Terry O'Quinn: I'd Like To Come Back For The Same Show Next Time

Posted: Updated:

Terry O'Quinn is coming back to prime time this week. He's co-starring on the new FOX series, "Gang Related," and he tells Good Day L.A. he wouldn't mind if the series has a good long run of at least five years.

That would be almost as long as his classic series, "Lost," ran.

And speaking of "Lost," did you know that shock rocker Marilyn Manson was a big fan of that show?

Terry says Manson handed him a watercolor of his character John Locke during their first and only meeting, and that the painting now hangs in Terry's living room. And it's become such a prized possession that Terry says, "It's one of the five or six things I would grab if the place lit on fire."

Terry O'Quinn joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.
