Lost's Josh Holloway Thrown Into The Avengers Rumor Mill
Considering that the film is still more than two years away, the amount of news and rumors about Joss Whedon's The Avengers says something about how highly anticipated it is. We've heard about Whedon re-writing script, the super-powered team fighting the Skrulls and Nathan Fillion and Kevin Pennington being cast as Ant-Man And Hawkeye. But if you think that rumors are going to slow down between now and January (when the film starts shooting), then you are seriously mistaken.
Avengers News says that Lost star Josh Holloway is now talking with Marvel Studios about a "lead role" in the upcoming superhero film. While the website wasn't given any information as to what character Holloway would play, they speculate it might be Hank Pym/Ant-Man, Clint Barton/Hawkeye, or S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Dum Dum Dugan.
Seeing as he is a 6'1" white guy it's not really surprising that his name has been thrown into the Marvel mix. With Lost now over (sorry Losties), he's going to have a lot of time on his hands. Holloway hasn't had much of a feature film career yet, but a large role in a comic book movie could be all he needs.
