NBC remains interested in rebooting the James Garner detective series "The Rockford Files," and now the name attached to the project is a former cast member of "Lost," reports Entertainment Weekly.
Josh Holloway, who played James “Sawyer” Ford on “Lost,” is being considered for the role of Jim Rockford, the story says. The publication reports that Dermot Mulroney, who filmed the new pilot last spring, is now out of the running.
According to "House" executive producer David Shore, who is behind the reboot, “NBC is still high on the project. They would like it to happen. Peter Berg’s involved producing and possibly directing.”
