Josh Holloway joins cast of 'Mission: Impossible 4'

James "Sawyer" Ford, you now work for Mr. Tom Cruise.

According to an item in the Hollywood Reporter, Josh Holloway has been cast as a member of the Impossible Mission Force in "Mission: Impossible IV," where he will appear alongside the aforementioned Cruise (leader of said Force) and Jeremy Renner, among others.

This is the first major motion-picture role for Holloway, who filled the small screen with pop-culture-inspired nicknames and dirtbag hotness for six seasons on TV's "Lost."

For those keeping score, let's adjust our tallies. This marks our second major casting announcement of the day involving a former "Lost" star and the second time a J.J. Abrams project (he's the producer of "M:I IV") recently has provided a job for a former "Lost" cast member -- third time if you count Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson as separate entities in their latest collective TV coup.

If this keeps up, Abrams is going to become the equivalent of Judd Apatow, ushering his "Lost" actors into the next phase of their careers, "Freaks and Geeks"-style. Frankly, we're okay with that.

And I will spend the time prior to the release of M:I IV seeking the largest movie screen in North America.
