‘Lost’ star Josh Holloway explains his character in ‘Intelligence’ with ‘CSI’ alum Marg Helgenberger

The CBS action-adventure show Intelligence debuts next week with LOST star Josh Holloway and CSI’s Marg Helgenberger cyber-themed drama.

Holloway is an former Delta Force op, enhanced with a microchip in his brain, which allows him the ability to hack into the international computer grid. The official synopsis is below.

”He can get shot, he can get killed just as easily as you and me can, and that was appealing to me,” says the Lost alum tells Entertainment Weekly.

”I didn’t want him to be this super human that you can’t hurt, or Robocop, who is more machine than human. This is simply a computer chip in his head, so yes, you have information, but that’s it.”

Meaghan Ory, Michael Rady, John Billingsley and PJ Byrne also star.

Intelligence officially debuts January 7, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT on CBS

Official Synopsis: In Intelligence, Josh Holloway stars as Gabriel Vaughn, a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel is the first human ever to be connected directly into the global information grid. He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies. Marg Helgenberger stars as Lillian Strand, the director of the elite government cyber-security agency who supports Gabriel and oversees the unit’s missions. She assigns Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behavior and disregard for protocol.
