I’m getting pretty good at these catchy titles aren’t I? Josh Holloway was one of the stars of “Lost”, and now he’s losing his hair! Ironic right!? Not really, I know, but someday when his hair loss gets really real you’re going to see the front page of “Weekly Star Celebrity Planet News” while you’re waiting in line at Costco and they’re going to be using my headline and you’re going to go “See that Jeanette? That guy from Lost…lost his hair! How clever!”. Jeanette won’t get it because she has no idea who Josh Holloway is because she “Doesn’t watch all that Sci-Fi crap that you and your lazy brother love to watch instead of taking out the trash” and you’ll probably end up realizing that the two of you aren’t right for each other and get a divorce. You’ll lose 40 pounds post-split, move out west and after a montage in which you struggle to adjust to your new life before picking up surfing as a hobby and starting your own moving company, you end up re-marrying a yoga instructor…a yoga instructor; enjoy your awesome new life you piece of crap. So yeah, Sawyer is going bald, wanna fight about it?
Holloway started out his career as a model before becoming a big deal on “Lost”, a show that saw him sporting long hair and an exposed chest for most of its run. He started that gig in his early thirties, so a decade later, it’s no surprise that he’s losing some of his mane. His hair loss isn’t anything crazy, and it’s fairly hard to notice unless you look at old pictures from early in his career. He has some minor hairline recession but only enough that his forehead looks a little big. The picture below shows a bit of a dip at the temples for the “Intelligence” star, but nothing that would cause him to seek professional help. I can’t see Josh going for a hair transplant procedure or a hair system any time soon, if ever. In fact, the pattern of his loss should see him being able to get away with just slicking his hair back as he gets older (think Sam Sheppard) and a having a big forehead goes from “he looks old” to “that man is so distinguished”. It helps his cause that he’s a level of handsome that the rest of us can’t even see from all the way down here, so anything he does will most likely turn out well. Time will tell whether he loses enough of his hair to become a full-fledged member of The Bald Army, but he seems like a nice guy so he’ll be welcomed with open arms and empty scalps when the time comes. Besides, maybe he can explain that butthole of an ending that his old show had.
