Lost Star Josh Holloway Close To Signing On To Mission: Impossible 4
Just yesterday, former Lost star Maggie Grace was cast as Irina in one of the biggest franchises running today. Now, it seems, that one of her cast-mates is following suite. THR is reporting that Josh Holloway, best known for playing Sawyer on the hit ABC show, is closing in on a role in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 4. Joining the cast which already includes Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton,Vladimir Mashkov, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg, the article reports that Holloway will play a member of the Impossible Mission Force, though no further details are available.
Last we heard about Holloway he was being rumored for one of three roles in The Avengers, though two of those roles have since been cast (Hawkeye and Dum Dum Dugan) and one has been permanently erased (Ant-Man). It's all too common for stars of hit television shows to have a hard time furthering their career, but it looks like Holloway is doing his very best to stave off that curse. Last time I wrote about him, I said that "a large role in a comic book movie could be all he needs" to get a feature film career off the ground. Mission Impossible could do that just as well.
