Simon Pegg Will Be Back in the Field for 2015's 'Mission: Impossible 5'
Briefly: Following last week's news that Mission: Impossible 5 was making the bold choice to open on Christmas Day in 2015, just one week after Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters, we have one returning cast member confirmed to join Tom Cruise in the sequel from Jack Reacher director and The Usual Suspects writer Christopher McQuarrie. Speaking with MTV, Simon Pegg confirmed that the IMF team's computer and gadget expert Benji will be back in the field with Ethan Hunt. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol threw him into the action mix after introducing him behind a computer in Mission: Impossible 3. Pegg provides perfect comic relief and fits in with the team, so it's good to have him back. Stay tuned for more.
