Watch: Josh Holloway’s ‘Lost’ Audition

Happy birthday, Josh Holloway! The Lost and Colony star turns 48 today.

It took Holloway over a decade in acting to find an establishing signature role in Lost. Naturally, the relatively-unknown actor had to audition for the part. Although he faced some still competition from Matthew Fox for the role of James “Sawyer” Ford, Holloway landed the part and Fox was cast in another role (Jack Shephard).

The above clip from Holloway’s audition demonstrates the charm that worked so well for the character. You can watch the whole video above!
