EXCLUSIVE: LOST Star Josh Holloway Up For BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Role

According to my source, 'Lost' star Josh Holloway is being considered for a role in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel, Batman Vs. Superman. If WB hires the TV sex symbol he'll join Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman).

My source, General Napier, has informed me that Josh Holloway ("Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol "), who played the role of James "Sawyer" Ford in ABC's hit-television series Lost, is being "strongly" considered for a role in Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman. Information about who he might be playing in the Man of Steel sequel was not provided. The 44-year-old actor is currently starring in Intelligence, which is a new prime-television series on CBS. It made its debut this past Tuesday. CBS's new drama pulled in 16.6 million viewers, making it the most-watched series premiere this season.

If I had to venture a guess as to which Batman Vs. Superman role Josh Holloway could possibly be up for I would say, Aquaman (Arthur Curry). The 'Lost' actor has always been considered by fans as a great choice for DC Comics' King of the Seven Seas. Perhaps, they finally got their wish. Like I said, that's just me speculating.

Reasonnnn - 1/12/2014, 7:43 PM
ahhhhhh, surprised he hasn't gotten more gigs post-LOST except for the occasional GHOST PROTOCOL. Hidden action star potential.
JDUKE25 - 1/12/2014, 7:43 PM
Fine by me.

Mendenhall12 - 1/12/2014, 7:44 PM

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/12/2014, 7:49 PM
Get ready for a lot of nicknames
McNyagano - 1/12/2014, 7:49 PM
Haven't seen him in anything so I can't really comment on this.
beane2099 - 1/12/2014, 7:51 PM
Maybe he's playing Otis, Luthor's loveable bumbling sidekick. OR Doomsday - cause everyone seems to like guessing Doomsday for every new actor that gets (allegedly) attached to this movie.
KilledHal9000 - 1/12/2014, 7:51 PM
Hope he is up for something. Please be true.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/12/2014, 7:52 PM
Never seen Lost, no idea who he guy is anyway. I'll wait and see.
cmmprime - 1/12/2014, 7:52 PM
Not sure why but I get the feeling he'll be John Corben/Metallo.
MetahumanAbominationKlone - 1/12/2014, 7:52 PM
@Nova

He was the only good character in the show lol.
JbGeezer - 1/12/2014, 7:52 PM
Naah. He should be The Sentry..
nailbiter111 - 1/12/2014, 7:52 PM
It's basically a done deal, I'm just playing it safe by putting "up for." You can pencil him in, that's how confident I am.
OdinsBeard - 1/12/2014, 7:52 PM
metallo?
parascythe - 1/12/2014, 7:53 PM
I wanted him Jim Raynor in a Starcraft movie
MBZ1993 - 1/12/2014, 7:53 PM
hal jordan, green arrow, or aquaman?
cmmprime - 1/12/2014, 7:55 PM
So, will they be casting most parts with actors who are 40+ years old to ensure they have to reboot the whole thing in less than 10 years?
GliderMan - 1/12/2014, 7:55 PM
I have no idea who the [frick] he is.

Wth, Warner Bros, cast an actual star.
DestinyAboveUs - 1/12/2014, 7:56 PM
Aquaman!!! I see him as Arthur Curry!!!
WhiteBolt - 1/12/2014, 7:56 PM
Yes!

xxon - 1/12/2014, 7:56 PM
Sorry, after Ben Afleck as batman this sounds like a real crapfest.
Praetorian - 1/12/2014, 7:57 PM
Lex Luthor, calling it right now. Snyder said he envisioned his Luthor to start out with a long mane like Brad Pitt or Richard Branson
Hemsey - 1/12/2014, 7:58 PM
MOTHER[frick]ING AQUAMAN
ThePowerCosmic - 1/12/2014, 7:59 PM
Wow...he would be a great Aquaman! I would love to see an Aquaman film.
JoeMomma29 - 1/12/2014, 7:59 PM
He looks like Aquaman!!!!!!!!!
Vegeta - 1/12/2014, 7:59 PM
I don't care about who is potentially 'up for a role' anymore.. just give me a damn official casting choice already.
nailbiter111 - 1/12/2014, 7:59 PM
I can tell you with certainty, he is not Lex.
JoeMomma29 - 1/12/2014, 8:00 PM
Warner Bros is killing all of us with no official announcements and all these rumors just swirling around!!!!!!
Darktower - 1/12/2014, 8:00 PM
Aquaman totally !
Mike89 - 1/12/2014, 8:00 PM
Lex Luthor. Im calling it.
JoeMomma29 - 1/12/2014, 8:00 PM
@ NailBiter

How so??????
storyteller - 1/12/2014, 8:01 PM
Here's the thing, he's the star of a new tv series. As a right now his time is booked due to the show. So I bet it's something more like mission impossible where he simply has a minor but cool role.
WhiteBolt - 1/12/2014, 8:01 PM
Grifter is coming!

geezy101 - 1/12/2014, 8:01 PM
yes!!!!!! I love Holloway. Such a talented actor. I pray to god he's aquaman, but maybe Steve Trevor? Not to far fetched. Anyways, whatever role he gets its a plus to have him in the film.
GliderMan - 1/12/2014, 8:02 PM
I can tell you with certainty, I am not Jesus
OwenWilsonsNose - 1/12/2014, 8:03 PM
