'Lost': The Man in Black is now the man in everything

Titus Welliver lines up a slew of TV and movie roles in the next couple months

Posted on

Titus Welliver, a.k.a. Lost‘s Man in Black, would love to have a show of his own — if he just had the time. In addition to his part-time gig as a prosecutor on The Good Wife, Welliver’s got a three-episode arc as a Blackwater-type CEO on CSI that ends Jan. 25; he’ll debut opposite Kiefer Sutherland as a hero on Fox’s Touch on Jan. 25; and he’ll protect magical coins on NBC’s Grimm starting Feb. 17. Add to that a costarring role in FX’s comic-book pilot Powers and a part in the flick Man on a Ledge (Jan. 27), and it’s no wonder the 50-year-old is okay with postponing aspirations for a series of his own. ”These guest spots have been really good characters,” he says, ”so they have been my sustenance.”
