EXCLUSIVE: Josh Holloway Is NOT Up For A Role In The Avengers!

EXCLUSIVE: Josh Holloway Is NOT Up For A Role In <i>The Avengers</i>!

The Lost actors representative has told me that his involvement in 2012's The Avengers is nothing more than a rumor...

Yesterday AvengersNews posted an article that claimed, "there’s been talk between Marvel and his [Josh Holloway] group to play a 'lead' role in an upcoming Marvel film." The site claimed that it was likely he was up for the role of either Hank Pym, Hawkeye or Dum Dum Dugan based on "subtle hints" that they had recieved.

Like many of you, I was pleased to hear this news especially as I'm a big fan of Holloway's work in Lost and could see him being able to do a great job with any of the characters listed above. However, I decided to dig a little deeper with this rumour and after a lot of searching and several emails, I managed to get in touch with Melissa Kates from View Point LA who represents the actor.

I asked her whether there was any truth to the news and if she could tell me exactly what role he might be in the running for but was unfortunately met with the following response:

"Hi Josh – this is just a rumor."

So there you have it. Many thanks to Melissa for taking the time to get back to me! Personally, I still hope that we'll see Holloway get a role in a comic book movie in the near future but you can have your say with the below poll and in the usual place!
