    Hi Tom

    I must tell you that I am thrilled to hear this, as MI has been my favourite of all times ; all the series, a lot of memories associated with that film..
    I had lots of ups n downs in life, losing parents, so having watched this film with my mum reminds me of all the good old times..
    i even remember delaying my first foreign trip in 2000 (after which i have stayed abroad for 5 yrs) just to see the first day show of this film and after hving watched this film i took the plain to france..
    I have travelled abroad after that and have studied and worked in europe including Translators Simalteneous interpreter for french actors..
    wherever i go, the name Ethan, and MI has been a strong influence in my life..i still have those old posters of MI 1 and MI2 in my room..cannot take them off..
    Things come and things go, but MI s Ethan hunt character is still the same for me..
    im ageing but still cannot escape the excitement and the hype for thhis film of yours..

    just wanted to tell you that i will be waiting impatiently for this film…take care
    hugs

    comgratulations tom .look forward to seeing it.

  • janice davis

    i think the villian should be Julian McMahon……he is hot and plays evil very well

  • D. Rowe

    There can be only one MI4 baddie – Adrian Paul
    (From Highlander: The Series fame. The movies, Highlander: Endgame and Highlander: The Source. Among many other Excellent, roles he’s portrayed.

  • Dominic Riccitello

    Lindsey Farris was killed, also known as Keri Russell. She was an agent.

  • Fabienne Gondrand

    TRIVIA ANSWER:
    Musgrave walks in. He reveals that the woman Davian shot was not Julia, but in fact Davian’s security guard from Vatican City who failed him.

    THE VILAIN IN MI4:
    GLENN CLOSE !!!

  • Marilyn Anderson

    Your new villain should be the guy who played Trinity on the last season of Dexter.

  • Fuad omar

    The person executed is Davien’s translator, I think the actors name is Bahar Samoonkh. He had Julias mask put on him.

    A great MI IV villain would be Wesley Snipes or Viggo Mortensen as both could be cold, calculating and menacing villains.

  • http://swskymuffin@aol.com Andrea Griffith

    The girl that was killed was Davian’s translator. She was killed for letting him get captured by Ethan Hunt.

  • Tony Berka

    Trivia answer: The girl with Julias mask on that was murdered, was Daviens interpreter.

  • Isaca Collins

    Hi Tom,

    I would have to say that I’d love to see Sam Worthington as the Villan in your next movie. I can’t say that he’s really been a villan and I’d love to see him in that art. I really loveyou and your movies and I just love Sam Worthington so I’d really enjoy seeing a movie with 2 gorgeous men in it.

    xoxoxoxo

    I would like to enter the contest to win the DVDs because I AM and ALWAYS HAVE BEEN a big TOM CRUISE fan! Julia was not executed in Mission Impossible III, it was one of Davian’s incompetent personnel played by Bahar Soomekh who had on a disguise to look like Julia.
    Thanks for the website!

  • Lily dela Sierra Siy

    Good to know that there’s going to be a MI-4 movie.I often have fantasy’s about appearing with you in a movie TOM CRUISE!The title? MI-4 U? (joke) :) Have a good night & day!!!Luv Yah!!!

  • Carolina Gomez

  • deema

    hey tom , you are the best actor ever . i’m so thrilled about m:i 4 , good luck… mwa :D

  • Victoria Marino

    The person in MI: III who was disguised as Ethan’s fiance/wife (Michelle Monaghan), and was killed was Davien’s translator, played by Bahaar Soomehk. I’m not sure of the spelling of her name; but you get what I’m saying. I do not know what her character’s name was. I can’t wait for another episode/sequel in the Mission Impossible powerhouse. I may be an old grandma, but I’ve immensely enjoyed these films. Tom, you are my “fantasy son.” Your mom must be so proud!!

  • Victoria Marino

    The person disguised as Ethan’s fiance/wife, who was actually killed was Davien’s translator, Baahar Soomehk. I don’t think her character’s name was used in the film.

  • http://www.myspace/stellacostantinu.com stella constantinu

    The girl was his translator who dissapointed him at the Vatican…at least that was what he implies!

  • Linda Moriarty

    I’d like to see Ryan Gossling as an enemy in a Mission Impossible. He would be awesome against Tom.
    Love you Tom and hope the family is good :)

  • cookie cruise mcfarland

    the person who was executed in the place of Julia was the translator

  • Carolina Gomez

    Creo que una mujer seria una excelente villana, una que represente el peor miedo de cualquier hombre inteligente y astuto.
