Intelligence's Josh Holloway, Marg Helgenberger on the Script That Lured Them Back to Television

Josh Holloway grew up with three brothers acting out James Bond and Mission Impossible fantasies, so it’s not a big surprise that he chose CBS’ Intelligence — in which he plays an agent enhanced with a microchip that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum — as his first major TV role after six seasons on Lost.

Holloway — along with costars Marg Helgenberger (CSI) and Meghan Ory (Once Upon a Time) — sat down with Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite to talk about the sweeping scope of their new series and the way it grapples with questions about technology and the the ethics of intelligence-gathering in the modern world.

Oh, and as a bonus, you get to hear Holloway use the adjective “quaalude-slow.”

  2. Elyse says:

    I like the cast so i’ll definitely be checking this show out!

  3. Cairi says:

    This one tops my “most eagerly awaited” list of the new shows coming out. May it be as good as it promises to be!

  4. Brian says:

    Still desiring to see Marg Helgenberger replaced by someone, anyone, at this point… one can only hope. She really dampens the enthusiasm level over this show.

  5. DavidSask says:

    Add me to the list that Marg needs to take a break from TV!!!

    no more Once upon a time for meghan? I love her as ruby!!!

  7. David S says:

    13 episodes, then cancelled. The pilot didn’t wow me and the showrunner exit doesn’t bode well for the consistency of the show.

      Full agreement here. It also sounds like the premise of Chuck, but instead of a nerd getting the chip, it’s the jock instead.

  8. Ib Nancy says:

    I can’t believe you didn’t ask Meghan if she’s going to be working on both this and on Once?? I know she’s not front and centre every week on once so it could be done…..
    Glad to see Josh and Marg back on TV, I wish the show well.

    • Evan says:

      It’s been long established she’s going to do guest spots on OUAT. Both shows are owned by the same company so its already been worked out.

  9. Joe says:

    Isn’t this midseason? Why would be seeing anything in November sweeps?
