Holloway perfect for "Mission: Impossible" franchise

Josh Holloway as Sawyer on "Lost"
The Hollywood Reporter has reported that "Lost" bad boy Josh Holloway will be heading to the big screen "as a member of the Impossible Mission Force, the secret agent task force headed by Tom Cruise in Paramount's 'Mission: Impossible 4.' "

Holloway's portrayal of gun-wielding conman James "Sawyer" Ford in "Lost" was so convincing that becoming part of a secret agent task force seems like a natural step. Sports Editor Mark Podolski has long said that Holloway would make the perfect Harry Callahan in a remake of "Dirty Harry", and I don't think portraying a secret agent is much of a stretch from that.

I'm really looking forward to hearing more about Holloway's "MI" character, and to seeing what else he has coming up now that "Lost" is finished -- you know, because I just totally respect him as an actor and am interested in seeing what else he is pursuing professionally and not because watching him for six seasons of "Lost" has helped me to develop some sort of celebrity crush on him (though I do hope he will be cutting his hair now that he is no longer marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean).
