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

6 Comments

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.

    If the rumors about Renner turn out to be just that, he'd be a decent Hawkeye. Also he wouldn't be a bad Hank Pym either. Hell he's kind of a Deus Ex Machina that could fit all parts.

    Actually, I think he would've been good in a “Green Arrow” movie.

    He's a little bit of a hot shot roguish type of dude a liiiiitle more suited for “hawkeye” but he'd be a little different for Pym. Preferrably I'd like Nathan Fillion as Pym and Renner as Hawkeye. Maybe he could be Captain Marvel.

    I'm just saying if Renner is a rumor Halloway would make a great Hawkeye as well, and I think he'd be a decent Pym. But on a nother note what about Josh Lucas as Pym? Or Mar-Vell. He's done a comic film before (Played Talbot in first Hulk film) and he's a decent actor. I love Filion but doubt he'd pull away from his show even for Whedon.
