Tom Cruise rejoins co-star Simon Pegg on the forthcoming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, a reunion to the British comic actor can’t wait to release on the world, according to a recent interview for ScreenCrave. First joining Tom on Mission: Impossible III, the international star of such genre satires as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz will reprise his role of IMF computer expert Benji Dunn. He came forth with a single estimation of the Brad Bird-directed action and spy thriller:
“This is going to be awesome! … I’m so stoked for this film.”
We can’t disagree with the assessment of the actor in his second appearance in the series, backing up Tom’s character Ethan Hunt with sharp wit, wry energy and superb comic timing. Not only is the team at TomCruise.com looking forward to the latest installment of the Mission: Impossible series, but it seems the press and fans are looking forward to it as well.
Sounds like theaters should be packed come the release later this year. Is there anyway to get tickets now?
If Pegg got any drier, we might need to keep a thermos of tea close at hand. Honestly, his affable demeanor and likable style makes him a perfect counterpoint for Tom’s intensity throughout the series. For anyone who hasn’t caught his first performance, you may want to consider picking up a copy of a Mission: Impossible III DVD to see what you’ve been missing. Details on the DVD are below:
