Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson join Tom Cruise for Mission: Impossible 5

07.09.2014

UPDATE: Deadline reports that Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson, best known for her recent lead on the Starz series THE WHITE QUEEN, has joined MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 in the female lead previously offered to Jessica Chastain.

Alec Baldwin is currently weighing whether or not he wants to accept the impossible mission of being supervisor to the notoriously troublesome Ethan Hunt. Baldwin is apparently in talks to take on a role in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 for director Christopher McQuarrie.

Variety claims the role being offered to Baldwin is similar in nature to Laurence Fishburne's turn in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III. The question remains how significant the role will be. But, regardless of the size, Baldwin will likely knock it out of the park. The actor has segued in the last decade to more of a comedic actor with his role as Jack Donaghy on 30 ROCK and various SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE appearances, but the man who was THE SHADOW has also delivered dramatic performances in films like Martin Scorsese's THE DEPARTED.

As of now, it is unknown who else will be starring in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 aside from Cruise. It is widely assumed that Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, and Ving Rhames would return but nothing has been confirmed regarding the secretive project. For now, we have to assume this is going to be bigger than Brad Bird's MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL in every possible way.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 is slated to open on December 25, 2015.

I love Baldwin on screen. I'm all for it!

Don't care about "the man himself" from what I see and hear, but he's great to watch. Not just 30 Rock, but stuff like THE COOLER... oh man he was INTENSE! Can't wait to see him do more stuff!

Notoriously troublesome Alec Baldwin supervises notoriously troublesome Ethan Hunt. It's a perfect match.

I know Rock of Ages wasn't good, but its best scene was when Tom Cruise meets Alec Baldwin. It would be fun to see them together again but in different characters.

Great casting. Would love to see him in a few action scenes that would show how badass his character is and I hope that they give him some dialogue that is in the same vein and tone and rivals his dialogue in Glengarry Glen Ross.

Really like the addition of Baldwin and the sexiness of Ferguson. Can't wait.

The original Jack Ryan working with Ethan Hunt. Yeah, I like that idea.

Ghost Protocol's a tough act to follow but Baldwin would be an awesome addition, just cast Mark Walberg to work beside him and make it a Departed reunion...

Please let it be a five minute monologue.

Don't care who he plays or how much screen time, just let him have a bad ass monologue.
