Last we saw Lost 's Michael Dawson, he appeared to perish in the freighter explosion (though perishing is a relative concept on this show). But the actor who plays Michael, Harold Perrineau, has been keeping busy since that untimely death with a new series: ABC's The Unusuals.
TV Guide Network caught up with Perrineau to learn more about The Unusuals, an unorthodox cop drama, and his neurotic character, Det. Leo Banks, who, among other idiosyncrasies, sleeps in his bulletproof vest. Plus: Will Perrineau be returning to Lost? See what he has to say after the jump.

The day Stephen Colbert has been waiting for has (almost) arrived.
The funnyman's bid to have his name attached to the newest module of the international space station will draw to a close on Tuesday's edition of The Colbert Report, according to The Associated Press. Astronaut Sunita Williams will appear on the program as well.
Colbert urged fans to write in his last name in a NASA poll that allowed the public to vote for the new room's moniker. "Colbert" easily beat out NASA's suggestions, which included Serenity, Legacy, Earthrise and Venture.
Even so, NASA has the final word...

Tori Spelling, Candy Spelling
Candy Spelling's claims of a feud between her and daughter Tori Spelling are greatly exaggerated, the 90210 star says.
"It's not like we're not talking, we just haven't talked," Tori told People. "I love my mother. I've always loved her [and] no doubt she loves me. There's no feud. We simply never meshed."
Mother and daughter were estranged for years before reconciling after Tori gave birth to her son, Liam, in 2007. Recently, Candy said she's been cut off from ...
Madonna says she wants her son and the 3-year-old Malawian girl she hopes to adopt to "one day return to Malawi and help the people of their country."
Earlier this month, a Malawian judge rejected Madonna's request to adopt Chifundo "Mercy" James because the singer did not fulfill the country's 18- to 24-month residency requirement. Madonna has since filed an appeal and made her plea in the country's Nation newspaper.

Apparently even Simon Cowell is mortal.
The man who brings a certain something to American Idol, its across-the-pond predecessor, X Factor, and Britain's Got Talent (watch clip here), is beginning to question whether he can keep the candle burning at all three ends. And that's not even factoring in his work as a music producer.
"I don't want to come over as whiney, because I am very grateful that I have got these jobs," Cowell tells the UK's Daily Mirror. "But there is a point where ...
Like it or not, Miley Cyrus has star power.
The tween queen led Hannah Montana: The Movie to the top of the box office this weekend, earning an estimated $34 million and outrunning last week's champ, Fast & Furious, according to Variety. Hannah marks the second-best Easter weekend opening of all time.
Cyrus' flick set a few more records: It's the biggest April opening Disney has ever had, and the movie's Friday gross — $17.3 million — is the best opening day of any live-action, G-rated film in history.
Fast & Furious wasn't a big loser, though. It added $28.2 million to its overall gross ($118 million) and won the international box office. More impressively, the film earned more than $200 million worldwide ...
