Josh Holloway Wades Into ‘Man of Steel’ Rumors

Is the artist formerly known as James “Sawyer” Ford about to become the sea’s greatest superhero? If so, it’s news to Josh Holloway — but that doesn’t mean he isn’t game.

“It hasn’t been brought to my attention by my people,” the Lost veteran and current Intelligence star told IGN about recent rumors connecting him to the delayed Man of Steel sequel, “so maybe they’re just floating it softly around, but that would be cool!”

Most rumors have connected Holloway to the role of Aquaman, as a means of setting up a Justice League movie. The wouldn’t comment on any specific roles he might be up for, except to say that he’s interested in the superhero scene — even if his new CBS series Intelligence might get in the way.

“I’m an actor, I like different roles. Batman movies are awesome, Marvel movies are awesome,” he said. “But we’ll see, I’m on a series right now. I think they usually want to sign you up for several movies and I don’t know if you can do that when you’re committed to a series.”

With or without Holloway, director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel flies into theaters on May 6, 2016 — unless it moves again.

    Forget Aquaman. He should be Green arrow.

  • Theo

    He’s a bad actor. I’m trying to get into his new show and he’s so stiff.

  • percane

    i could see him as guy gardner pretty easily too

  • LightningBug

    Timid Warner Bros. will never put Aquaman in a movie. They’re already pushing back the MoS sequel because they’re afraid of their own shadow. This rumor is silly.

  • Murraypalooza

    Forget Aquaman, he is HAL JORDAN.

  • Richard Casey

    AMAZED no one has posted a screen grab of “that” scene from Lost.

  • JusticeBringer

    What scene?

  • JusticeBringer

    Hal Jordan’s not that cool.

    You don’t cast this man as Guy Gardner!

    You get someone like Mark Wahlberg to play Guy Gardner.

  • Felwithe

    Why does every super team need a guy whose thing is a bow and arrow?

  • John S

    He would be good as Aquaman. They should use guy from Arrow as Green Arrow and Flash from the new show next year. There is no reason to recast these actors for the movie. This would bring people from the movie to see the tv shows.

  • Ian Cook

    That could work.

  • Ian Cook

    Mark Wahlberg cold do Gardner.

  • Ian Cook

    Archery is cool.

  • Kirby Lane

    Not really.

  • Kirby Lane

    Hal Jordan really isn’t that great. Nice try though

  • Scrapper Keeper

    Can you elaborate on that instead of just saying “Not really”?

  • Chuck777

    I think he has the anger and street cred to really make Gardner awesome.

  • Kirby Lane

    Lol. It was my response. There wasn’t a need to elaborate on anything. Obviously the masses agree. There shouldn’t be a tv/movie crossover using the current tv actors. Some actors don’t make a good transition from tv to the big screen. Simple, eh?
