Latino Review (who have always been right on the money with Marvel scoops) are hearing that two “very physical” male roles are being cast, one being an American and the other being foreign. Two of the names up for these parts are Josh Holloway (Sawyer from “Lost”) and “Game of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Kevin Durand is also in running, but not as likely a choice. The scoopers speculate these roles might be for villains, but Screen Rant has an interesting theory that Marvel might try to introduce the character Quasar.
Josh Holloway Up for ‘Captain America 2′?
“Battle of the Year” Release Date Pushed to September 13, 2013
Battle of the Year – The breakdancing (or “B-boy”) film starring Josh Holloway, Josh Peck, and Chris Brown has been pushed from this January all the way to September 13th, 2013.

Josh Holloway joins David Ayer’s “Ten”
“LOST” and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol star Josh Holloway has joined the cast of David Ayer’s upcoming Ten (formerly Breacher), Variety reports. He will star opposite the previously-announced Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Dawn Olivieri, Joe Manganiello, Malin Akerman and Mireille Enos.
The film follows an elite DEA task force that deals with the world’s deadliest drug cartels. Specializing in complex mobile operations, the team executes a tactical raid on a cartel safe house. What looks to be a typical raid turns out to be an elaborate theft operation, pre-planned by the DEA squad. After hiding millions in stolen cash, the team believes their secret is safe – until someone begins assassinating them one by one.
The original screenplay for Ten arrives from Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, A Good Day to Die Hard). Bill Block, Paul Hanson, Joe Roth, Palak Patel and Al Ruddy will serve as producers. Alex Ott of Ayer’s Crave Films is executive producer.
Happy 43rd Birthday, Josh!

Josh Holloway joins ‘Planet B Boy’ Cast
Lost star Josh Holloway, Laz Alonso, Josh Peck, Caity Lotz and Chris Brown are starring in Planet B Boy, a music-themed drama from Screen Gems.
The movie, based on the award-winning documentary Planet B-Boy, began production this week with Benson Lee in the director’s chair. The pic shoots in Los Angeles before moving to Montpellier, France.
The 2007 documentary focused on the international world of B-boying, commonly known in the U.S. as breakdancing. Although the urban dance waned in popularity stateside after peaking in the 1980s, it has evolved and thrived in countries including Japan, South Korea, France and Germany, where in underground form it became more aggressive and athletic. The project was set up at Screen Gems in spring 2009.
The movie, according to Screen Gems, “is about an all-star American b-boy crew training to compete in France at the Battle of the Year (BOTY) International Championships. After a decade of defeat, the crew and their coach must go up against the best and greatest b-boys in the world: the Koreans, the Russians and the French who have dominated the original American dance form for the last 10 years.”
Brin Hill and Chris Parker wrote the script.
Beau Flynn, Tripp Vinson and Amy Lo are producing the project.
Holloway will next be seen in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. Alonzo actedin Screen Gems’ recent thriller Straw Dogs and appeared in Avatar while Peck starred in the Sundance fave The Wackness. Lotz will next be seen in The Pact while recording artist Brown has taken strides into film with movies such as Takers.

“Community” Spoilers on Josh Holloway’s guest spot
Question: I know that NBC ordered 24 episodes of Community this season. But does the hour-long finale count as both Episode 23 and 24? I can’t get enough of my favorite study group! —Anders
Ausiello: Yes, it counts as both 23 and 24. Now let’s talk about something a little more interesting, mmkay? The series is doing a “flashback” episode in which we’ll get to see the whole gang during never before seen Greendale days. However, it won’t be a flashback episode in the traditional sense à la Lost. Also, Josh Holloway’s character in the finale is still being kept top-secret, but I can at least tell you to anticipate a Sawyer-y “Son of a bitch!” along the way.
In case you haven’t heard, Lost star Josh Holloway (that’s Sawyer, yo!) is guest-starring in the season finale of NBC’s cult-hit comedy Community as a “mysterious stranger.” Now, when we add up the fact that producers teased a “Sergio Leone homage” for the finale and the fact that finale is a bookend to last year’s fan-fave paintball episode, plus this “Wanted” poster from the set, plus Holloway‘s whole look, we start to get the feeling that Holloway is going to be playing Greendale’s own dangerous and elusive Man With No Name. Will he be shooting it out with someone from the study group, most likely Joel McHale‘s designated alpha male Jeff Winger? Here’s what the stars of Community told us about the show’s fateful finale:
