CBS may have found its next big star…”Lost” alum Josh Holloway has been cast as the lead in the CBS drama pilot “Intelligence.”
In his long-awaited return to the screen, Holloway will play Gabriel Black, the top agent of a U.S. intelligence unit who has some very special abilities — thanks to a microchip that’s been implanted in his head that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
The show is based on the unpublished book “Dissident” by John Dixon and the pilot script comes from Michael Seitzman (“North Country”), with David Semel (“No Ordinary Family”) set to direct.
This news should please the legions of Losties who love Holloway from his six seasons as the sexy, rugged bad boy Sawyer on the hit ABC series. The actor has been MIA from Hollywood since he left the island in 2010, save for an all-too brief appearance in the movie “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and a cameo on “Community.”
