Josh Holloway To Lead JJ Abrams’ Duster
We at The Illuminerdi have been alerted that Josh Holloway, most notably known for his role of Sawyer on Lost, is set to star in Abram’s Duster series for the streaming platform.
Duster will follow the life of a gutsy getaway driver for a growing crime syndicate, who goes from awful to wildly, stupidly, dangerously awful in 1970s Southwestern America.
LaToya Morgan (Parenthood, The Walking Dead) is co-writing the series alongside Abrams.
