Josh Holloway (born July 20, 1969) is an American actor.
Holloway was born in San Jose, California but moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia at the age of 2. He is the second oldest of four boys. He developed an interest for movies at a very young age. He studied at the University of Georgia but quit after only one year to become a successful model, which took him all over Europe and North America.
Josh's ambition for acting took him to Los Angeles, where he got a role in the comedy Doctor Benny. He followed that up with lead roles in the movies Mi Amigo, Moving August, and Cold Heart. After those roles, he gained notice for his lead role in the Sci-Fi Channel movie Sabretooth with David Keith and John Rhys-Davies. Holloway was also a guest star on CSI and NCIS. He struggled for eight years before his big break on the hit tv show "Lost".
Currently, he has a leading role in the Emmy award-winning ABC show Lost, where he plays the role of James "Sawyer" Ford, which has given him a Hollywood heart-throb status.
Josh's hobbies include boating, sailing, snowboarding, martial arts, motorcross, and playing guitar.
On the morning of October 12, 2005, he and his wife Yessica were robbed at gunpoint in their home. The couple was asleep when the gunman awoke them and took cash and credit cards before driving off in Holloway's Mercedes-Benz, which was found abandoned a short time later. There was no evidence that the criminals knew whom they were robbing, or had targeted them because Holloway was a celebrity.
In January of 2006, In Touch Weekly named Holloway the "hottest hunk" on television. In the same month, Holloway was voted the 17th sexiest guy worldwide by British readers of OK! magazine.
