Holloway's Fury Won Him Lost Role

JOSH HOLLOWAY only bagged the role of con-man SAWYER in LOST because his genuine anger against "brutal" Hollywood shone through at the audition. Holloway was ready to ditch acting after being "broken" by repeated rejection, but luckily his bitterness was just the right ingredient to win him the troubled role. He says, "I'd been in the business for eight years and I was working about twice a year, which is really not enough. "I was going to give up. I thought, 'OK they broke me'. It's a brutal town. I was like I've pounded against a cement wall with a toothpick. "When I went to test for Lost I showed real anger - after eight years of pounding on that door I was hungry and I wanted that part."
