Who is Lost’s Josh Holloway Playing in The Avengers?

Because according to Total Film, Marvel is very keen on getting Holloway, now that he’s got all that free time post-“Lost” to join their uber super hero movie “The Avengers”. There is no word on what role he’ll play, and it could be anyone from superheros Ant-man and sure-shot Hawkeye to SHIELD fatass Dum Dum Dugan.

Holloway, who played Sawyer on “Lost”, has flirted with a Marvel-based movie before, and was originally considered for Gambit in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, but was constrained by his limited time off from “Lost”. I gotta admit, he might have been a better Gambit then the “Friday Night Lights” kid.

Whoever Holloway ends up playing, no doubt Marvel will be signing him for multiple picture deals, as they are wont to do. Joss Whedon will direct “The Avengers” for a 2012 release.
