The Hollywood Reporter brings news that the Lost star is “in final negotiations” to join Tom Cruise’s team of secret agents in Paramount’s Mission: Impossible 4.

Holloway will be joining The Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton and Vladimir Mashkov as the new additions to the cast, appearing alongside previous team member Simon Pegg and loyal Cruise side kick Ving Rhames (who has been along for the ride since the first mission, fifteen year ago!).

Story details are being kept under wraps at the moment, so it’s unclear how the Lost star will feature in this. I wouldn’t be surprised if both him and Renner meet an early demise and Cruise goes on the not only compete the mission, but get the girl and flash his perma-smile too (again).
