Getting a post-"Lost" gig was clearly not an issue for Josh Holloway. The 41-year-old actor is joining the fourth “Mission: Impossible" movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Although Holloway's popped up in a few indies, it’s the actor’s first studio picture. He's currently in final negotiations to appear in the film as a member of a secret agent task force headed up by "M:I" star Tom Cruise.
Holloway joins an ever-growing cast, which already includes Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Vladimir Mashkov, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg.
J.J. Abrams, who served as an executive producer on "Lost," is also producing "M:I-4" along with Cruise and Paula Wagner. The production team has reportedly been scouting locations in Vancouver, Prague and Dubai, and are aiming for a December, 2011 release.
