“Josh Holloway Interview for Battle of the Year

Battle of the Year Movie Trailer Battle of the Year MovieWe would not have known it from his cool demeanor and charming personality, but before our interview with Josh Holloway, he was shooting an emotionally charged scene for Battle of the Year and needed to take some time to get out of character.

He walked in apologizing for being a little late and said “it’s been a hard day, but it’s good to be working!”

Best known for his role as Sawyer on “LOST,” Holloway talked to us about the transition from the hit show to film and why he’s ready to be the lead actor.

Q: Can you tell us about the scene you just shot and why your character had to get so angry?

Josh Holloway: It’s the beginning of this sports / dance story. At the beginning he has to come in a bit hard because he has to gain their [trust]. They’re not used to being coached. They’re B-boys. It’s a dance that originated in the streets and they make their own rules so they’re not used to taking any sort of direction. He’s got to establish that alpha situation from the get. They’re not listening and it’s the first day of practice. They’re not taking it seriously and I’m reminding them that if they don’t take it serious they’re on a bus.

Q: Do you have any previous coaching or dancing experience?

Holloway: Yes and no to those. I’m playing a coach in this. What I liked about it and what attracted me to is this film is to start with is that it is a coaching story. It’s more of a sports story like “Friday Night Lights.” It was established right off in the first scene by my character when my friend comes and asks me to coach them. I tell them what a stupid idiot idea that is, because I was never a dance coach. I was a basketball coach. So like that. I like that it’s addressed right away. My friend is like, “I don’t care. A coach is a coach—different venue, but same principal. I need your skills.” So we agree on the fact that I have no idea what I’m doing as a dance coach which is cool. Later we bring on a choreographer to help out because in the story I did have previous dance experience. Me and the other character Dante (Laz Alonso) grew up together in foster care. They chose different paths. Dante became like P Diddy and I raised a family and became a basketball coach.”
