It's been revealed this evening that 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin is in talks to join the cast of Mission: Impossible 5 as the head of the CIA and his role will apparently be similar to that of Lawrence Fishburne's in Mission: Impossible III. The White Queen star Rebecca Ferguson meanwhile has signed up to play an assassin and femme fatale in what is described as the lead female role in the movie, and she will next be seen in Hercules opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. She's a relative unknown, and though Jessica Chastain was in talks at one point, she has dropped out and Cruise and the studio are now very keen on Ferguson. What do you guys think about these latest casting additions? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this news in the usual place!

I'm going out on limb and saying that Alec Baldwin ends up being the villain.
MrBlackjack - 7/9/2014, 4:45 PM
Baldwin would (or is?) a great addition!
SupermanFan - 7/9/2014, 4:45 PM
Shouldn't this franchise have been rebooted by now or is Tom Cruise just trying to hold on too the past. In any case I don't care about this.

Didn't Alec Baldwin do a racist rant? >.>

Are you kidding me? Paula Patton isn't returning?
Oh c'mon.

That's so sexist. Switch out the lead female role to someone else while keeping the other males back for the sequel, because male audiences will get bored of seeing the same sexy, kick-ass woman two films in a row.

Awesome but what about Ving Rhames?!

That's all I want to know.

I hate all the Baldwins. And Alec is the worst of them. Might as well cast a Kardashian.
FastFlames - 7/9/2014, 5:14 PM
Nice I like it!
NICKHART - 7/9/2014, 5:14 PM
@cherrybomb amen. i was really hoping patton would return, I liked her in MI4. Here's hoping that michelle monaghan comes back at least for another cameo?

Arrowhead, you must be pretty young if you think Alec Baldwin is anything like the Kardashians. His speech from Glengarry Glen Ross is legendary. He only did one 7 minute scene and was nominated for an Oscar for it.
