‘Lost’ actor Josh Holloway reunites with JJ Abrams for ‘Duster’

Josh Holloway has been cast in the new HBO Max series ‘Duster’ which has been written by J.J. Abrams and LaToya Morgan.

The 51-year-old actor has been cast in the lead role for the new HBO Max drama from J.J. Abrams and LaToya Morgan.

‘Duster’ is set in the 1970s and explores the life of a getaway driver, played by Holloway, for a growing crime syndicate.

The show reunites Josh with J.J. as the pair worked together on the hit mystery TV series ‘Lost’, in which Holloway played the role of James ‘Sawyer’ Ford. Abrams co-created the series as well as executive producing and directing multiple episodes.

Josh Holloway was recently seen in  TV shows like ‘Yellowstone’ and ‘Colony’. He has also starred in ‘Sabotage’ and ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’.

Abrams and Morgan will executive produce ‘Duster’, with Ben Stephenson also serving as an executive producer for Abrams’ Bad Robot production company.

The show was one of several HBO Max projects Bad Robot set up with the streamer last year. Others included ‘Overlook’, which is inspired by Stephen King’s ‘The Shining’ and another set in the ‘Justice League Dark’ universe.

At the time, Kevin Reilly, chief content officer for HBO Max, said: “What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie (McGrath).

“What could be better than an original J.J. idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on an iconic I.P. from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max.”
