Josh Holloway Joins Mission Impossible 4

Paramount has tapped Lost’s Josh Holloway to join Jeremy Renner in providing you with a reason other than Tom Cruise to see Mission: Impossible 4. (Paramount is to be commended: These actors are both better choices than Shia LaBeouf.) Holloway, who at the end of Lost said he would spend two years trying to make it in movies before going back to TV, will play a member of the Impossible Mission Force, headed by Cruise, meaning, among other things, The Rockford Files reboot is now even deader than before! We do hope Holloway's MI4 character has Sawyer's way with nicknames: We would definitely pay to watch Holloway call Cruise "shortie" for an hour and a half. [Risky Business/HR]
