Josh Holloway cast as the lead in CBS’ Intelligence

A familiar face to television is returning to start in his own show. CBS has announced that Josh Holloway (Lost) is set to star in their newest drama Intelligence.

Intelligence is centered at U.S. Cyber Command and focuses on a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift — a microchip has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

Holloway will be playing Gabriel Black, a former Navy SEAL and dedicated intelligence officer. David Semel is set to direct the pilot, with Michael Seitzman and Tripp Vinson executive producing.

It’s great seeing another actor from Lost, one of my personal favorite shows, get a lead role on another show. CBS seems to be stocking up on Lost-alums already having Daniel Dae Kim on Hawaii 5-0 and Michael Emerson on Person of Interest.
