'''Josh Holloway''' played the role of James "Sawyer" Ford.

Joshua Lee Holloway, (born July 20, 1969), in wikipediaSan Jose, California, California is an American actor and former model.  His family moved to wikipediaGeorgia when he was a baby, and he grew up in wikipediaFree Home, Georgia, Georgia (to this day, he still considers himself a "Blue Ridge Mountain boy").  He had a successful career as a model until he got bitten by the acting bug and relocated to wikipediaLos Angeles, California.  He had minor acting parts in shows such as wikipediaWalker Texas Ranger|''Walker Texas Ranger'', wikipediaAngel (TV series)|''Angel'' and wikipediaCSI Crime Scene Investigation|''CSI'', and co-starred with wikipediaNastassja Kinski and Jeff Fahey in the B-movie thriller http// Cold Heart, in which he played the role of a married woman's lover/stalker.  

However, times were tough, and competition fierce for good roles. He was in serious need of acting work just prior to ''Lost''.  He relates the timing of his casting as a fortuitous windfall for him, because it came just when he was about to give up on acting.  He had been waiting to get a secure job before proposing to his then-girlfriend Yessica Kumala, to whom he finally proposed on the set of the {{ep}}, and married on Kauai in October, 2004. (''Finding Lost The Unofficial Guide'').
