Josh Holloway in Talks for The Avengers?
There is a story currently over at Avenger News that Josh Holloway, the hunky actor who played Sawyer on Lost, is in talks to play a role in the upcoming Avengers movie:
Sorry for the bad joke, but we received this interesting tidbit about “LOST” star Josh Holloway over the weekend. Apparently there’s been talk between Marvel and his group to play a “lead” role in an upcoming Marvel film. We mention a “lead” role because these bigger actors often won’t sign “retainers”, meaning everything should be 100% locked (character, film, etc) for Josh once he’s signed the dotted line. We have no idea who he could be playing or how soon he could sign, but here are some of our thoughts we've compiled with the subtle hints we've received.
- Henry Pym (important role in “The Avengers” and its sequels, lead role in “Ant-Man” spinoff.)
- Clint Barton/Hawkeye (maybe a S.H.I.E.L.D. member in “The Avengers” with a starring role in the “S.H.I.E.L.D.” spin-off or a future Avengers sequel.)
- Timothy “Dum Dum” Dugan (important S.H.I.E.L.D. member in “The Avengers” and its sequels, and lead role in the “S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff)
Only time will tell who Holloway could sign onto play, this casting has us excited though because we are big fans of Josh Holloway here at AvengersNews.com.
Please list this news under the "rumour" section since nothing has been confirmed yet and we should all take this story with a grain of salt. However, I'm certain that LOST and Josh fans out there would find this tremendous news indeed if Josh became part of The Avengers movie. If this story is true, we'll certainly know more in the weeks to come.
