Former Lost dreamboat Josh Holloway joins Mission Impossible 4

09.28.2010

It's hard for me to write this since I am heavily distracted by the image I chose and am having a hard time containing my "naughty thoughts". For the love of Pete, someone throw a bucket of cold water on me!

If you're reading this, it's likely that you don't find Josh Holloway to be "dreamy". In fact, you might be wondering how much he'll be channeling his former LOST character Sawyer for his new role in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4.

Yep, that's right. The ripped dude with the southern accent that got a lot of tang on the LOST island is going to star alongside Tom Cruise. Holloway is currently in final negotiations to play a member of the Impossible Mission Task Force, the secret agent task force headed by Ethan Hunt. But will this interfere with any of his other task forces? No.

Brad Bird (THE INCREDIBLES) is helming the fourth film in the series and so far has a great cast rounded up. Not only do we have Cruise and Holloway, there is also: Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Vladimir Mashkov, Ving Rhames, and Simon Pegg. J.J. Abrams is producing with Cruise and Paula Wagner. Andre Nemec and Josh Appelbaum penned the script.

Do you welcome Sawyer to MI:4?

Extra Tidbit: Holloway appeared in the Aerosmith video "Cryin'" as the guy who steals Alicia Silverstone's purse. I also named my cat Sawyer. Yes, my obsession may border on unhealthy. Who cares.

Hmmm

Like the guy a lot, but am a bit surprised. Cruise usually prefers having shorter actors work with him (like Renner and Jamie Foxx). Josh is like two feet taller than Tom, so maybe he'll have to shoot their scenes together standing in a ditch.

Awesome news, i think he will be great! i always thought he should have been cast as the lead in Cowboys VS Aliens. Well at least he is getting some good roles anyway.

Ah, so the island's anti-hero is making his break into mainstream blockbuster-ville. If there's one thing I'd wish he channel from Sawyer, it would be his nicknaming habit. It never got old. Good news, I'm hyped.

Fuckinay, that's awesome! I was so hoping he'd still make it in movies. Well, he and a lot of others (no pun intended). Please let him give people nicknames.

There must be a bad ass scene with Cruise, Renner, and Holloway all in one scene together staring each other down and yelling at one another with their quick remarks.

Great casting. He was great on LOST. Glad to see him getting roles like this. This could easily be the best Mission Impossible movie yet. When you have Bird, Abrams, Cruise, Renner, and Holloway all in one movie, you can't LOSE!!

Good casting news but Im about fed up of the Cruise hating going on, hes put up some classic fucking movies in his career. Tons of people on these very forums gave Gibson a pass to see his beaver but Cruise still gets shit on constantly. Hypocrites all around here.
MI has been a great series and am stoked for the 4th.

Doubts

As decent as M:I-3 was, I thought everyone has already determined this franchise, with this star, was dead. No amount of cheesy television actor casting and animated superhero movie directing can change that. I must say I am having doubts JJ Abrams has his head in the right place...and am wondering if perhaps the reigns of Star Trek should be handed over to a more rational individual.

Good news

but i still don't understand why a Mission:Impossible movie will have a different title...It's like making an A-Team movie and calling it 'Supersquad' or something, fucking stupid bullshit executive idea

I'm all for any Lost alum moving into movies. Cast is really impressive thus far. I'd be cool if Holloway becomes part of Renner's team that is suppose to take over in the following movies.

Wow this reboot is sounding like the movie that Mission Impossible movies SHOULD have been in the first place! An ensemble action series, not a vanity project for Cruise.

Good. The man's got too much charm as an actor to be stuck doing TV. Also, your extra tidbit made me look up how old he is. 41!
