Josh Holloway confirmed for 'Mission: Impossible 4'

Josh Holloway is trading his years on an island for another impossible mission, this time with Tom Cruise. The Lost star has jumped from one J.J. Abrams world to another, signing on to join the Mission: Impossible team that’s reassembling under director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and producer Abrams.

The film marks Holloway’s first post-Lost role. He will join Cruise, Jeremy Renner (The Town), and Paula Patton (Precious), in addition to series regulars Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news this afternoon.

Details on the fourth iteration of this franchise are being kept under wraps, but production is expected to begin by the end of the year. The film is slated to bow Dec. 2011.

    YYYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!! Words cannot express my excitement. WOOAAAHHHH!!! I wasn’t planning on seeing this film but now I am.

    • Sam Puckett

      He along with Ben and Locke were the best actors/reasons to watch LOST.

  • B

    Trying again – two other comments did not post! Anyway – Woo Hoo! Great news! Wish we could see Josh again sooner, but this is fabulous!

  • lefty

    Larry David’s been going nuts today.

    • ann

      I noticed that as well.

  • Mike

    Wow Josh, and Brad Bird as director, might actually make me want to see this.

  • Dave

    Hmm…with Josh Holloway, Jeremy Renner, and director Brad Bird, I may just have to see this.

    • Kristi

      I agree!

    • Stacie

      Me too! I hadn’t heard Brad Bird was involved yet. It’s so exciting!

  • v mody

    Renner and Holloway? I’m pretty sure I’m dying from hotness overload right now…

  • beth

    what happened to jonathan rhys meyers? Was he never asked or did they not want the risk because of the drug/alcohol thing? thought he’d be a great replacement for cruise until the whole racist comment thing happened-jeremy renner may be a good actor but he does float my boat as it were.

  • MH

    All they need to do now is get rid of Tom Cruise…

    • Donna Rose

      Agree, he’s unwatchable and no match for Josh Holloway’s onscreen charisma.

      • Vince from NYC

        Easy there.. I like Holloway as much as the next stright man.. I love Lost and thought he was brilliant throughout. He made you love him, hate him, want to fight him and want to be his friend. However, Tom Cruise is a Legend and has starred in dozens of blockbusters and had lead roles in, I don’t know, over 50 movies, at least. Top Gun, Born on the 4th Oscar nom.. Lets not get crazy now..

      • davey

        …straight man?…hmmm…right :)

      • Edina

        Cruise is, as Cher would say, so ten minutes ago. Holloway’s day may just be beginning.

      • Vince from NYC

        Cruise may be past his prime but is he no match for Holloway’s charisma? He is a leading actor, almost always.. Holloway was on one good show and part of an ensamble cast. I just think it was a bold statement.
        And Davey, ask your girl if I’m streight..

    • Agree

      That’s the first thing I thought. Renner and Holloway, but no Cruise.

  • Lost Rules

    oooooh! LIKE!!!

  • StewyFan

    I can’t stand Tom Cruise, but I will pay ten bucks just to see Josh and Jeremy.

  • Machunny

    I hate it when I have to break promises to myself. I’ve a long-standing commitment to never purchase another Tom Cruise ticket, and now I may have to go back on my word. But only if I can get a guarantee that Sawyer will be shirtless. Then I can leave with my dignity intact, knowing my $10 was well spent.

    • teresa

      Oh, you know he will! Cruise is too old!

      • Matt

        Isn’t Holloway only like five years younger than him or something?

  • megan

    Wow now Im really gonna see MI4…love Josh Holloway!

  • Lyss

    YES! SAWYER! I’m jumping for joy. MI series seems perfect, but I’d watch him in anything :D

  • sawyerIamyourHoney

    can’t wait to see steamy sawyer again. Sigh! Also, hopefully, Tommy will be less crazy when he promotes MI4. I used to love him so…!
