Woah nelly! Before you jump to conclusions, British actor Simon Pegg isn’t leaving Hollywood and joining the UK’s domestic counter terrorism security service the MI5, he is of course joining the cast of Mission Impossible 5. Christ that was close.
Following the recent confirmation that a fifth installment of the ultra successful franchise will now happen under the talented directorship of Christopher McQuarrie, (Jack Reacher, The Way Of The Gun), comes the news that Blighty’s very own treasured geek Simon Pegg will reprise his role as the nervous technician.
Speaking to MTV recently he was asked if he was looking forward to returning to the role: “Yes, absolutely. I’m looking forward to that. I’ve already started eating one carrot a day in order to be in shape.”
Mission Impossible 5 is slated for a Chrsitmas Day release on 2015.
