This is a much better choice!
Lost's Josh Holloway may have a new job!
NBC is eyeing the smoking hot actor to star in their reboot of the '70s private-eye TV show The Rockford Files.
Now that Dermot Mulroney is out, producers believe he would be the perfect choice to take over the iconic role that James Garner made famous.
The first attempt to revive the franchise failed big time when critics said "[It] looked like it was shot in the ’70s."
Steve Carrell and Peter Berg are among the producers that are behind the project, along with House's David Shore who says that “NBC is still high on the project. They would like it to happen. Peter Berg’s involved producing and possibly directing and we will be looking for a new lead.”
Shore adds that Holloway is a “viable choice,” but “it’s too premature” to start naming names.
We weren't too sure about Dermot Mulroney, but we think Josh is a MUCH better fit for the role!
