Lost’s Josh Holloway to Join Mission: Impossible 4

Well, I guess I’ll have to go see a Tom Cruise movie now. The Hollywood Reporter is…uh, reporting, that Josh Holloway, everyone’s favorite con man on Lost, is in final negotiations to join the latest installment of Mission: Impossible. Holloway will play a member of Ethan Hunt’s (Tom Cruise) new Impossible Mission Force, although that is all that is known about his top secret character. The latest movie, whose series was given a breath of life by the J.J. Abrams-helmed 2006 Mission: Impossible III, is being directed by Brad Bird (Ratatouille, The Incredibles), and also stars newcomers to the franchise: Jeremy Renner, Vladimir Mashkov and Paula Patton. Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg will also return to the previous roles on Hunt’s team.

J.J. Abrams is producing the film along with Tom Cruise and Cruise’s producing partner, Paula Wagner. The film goes into production this fall, with possible locations in Vancouver, Prague and Dubai. Mission: Impossible IV is aiming for a Christmas 2011 release.

This will be Holloway’s first major motion picture, and his first role since Lostconcluded last May. Between Daniel Dae Kim, who is firmly entrenched on the breakout hit Hawaii 5-0, Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn’s confirmed series, a guest stint for Jorge Garcia on How I Met Your Mother, and Maggie Grace scoring a part in Breaking Dawn, Holloway landing M:I4 is hopefully a harbinger of Lost favorites popping up in places on screens of every size (and what about the stage too?!?).

So, are you excited to see Josh Holloway in his first post-Sawyer role? Do you think this is a good fit for him, or is there something else you’d rather see him in first (besides more Lost)? What about the possibility of him reviving the planned reboot of The Rockford Files? Please leave your comments below or in our Forums, and be sure to bookmark TVOvermind for all of your TV needs.
