CBS picked up the new J.J. Abrams thriller Person of Interest for its fall lineup, and it looks fantastic. It stars Jim Caviezel (Passion of the Christ, The Prisoner) and Michael Emerson (Lost) as two men who risk their own lives to protect others in danger. Michael's character Finch calls the shots using mysterious numbers gleaned from government sources. Jim's character Reese is a burned out CIA covert ops guy, who takes care of the action. The screenplay for the pilot was written by pilot written by Jonah Nolan, who wrote The Dark Knight. Okay, you had us at Michael Emerson, and the addition of "mysterious numbers" was just a bonus. We can't wait for this one. Take a look:
