FIRST LOOK! Tom Cruise starts filming ‘Mission Impossible 4’! PLUS: Which ‘Lost’ hottie joins the cast?
The long hair is back!
In a Russian uniform, Bruce Springsteen T-shirt and a large mustache, Tom Cruise begins filming scenes for his latest project, Mission Impossible 4 which has begun filming on location in Prague, Czech Republic today.
Man, you know Tom Cruise needs this movie to succeed! He’s had a stretch of bad luck in the movie department lately. His last successful movie was 2008’s Tropic Thunder, and he wasn’t even in it that much. His last three starring movies have bombed. Lions for Lambs, Valkyrie and Knight & Day.
Tom Cruise recently opened up about doing the another MI movie, “My whole thing with the series is always having a new director come on and put their stamp on ‘Mission: Impossible,’ ” he told MTV News this summer. “Brian De Palma was first, then John Woo, J.J. Abrams and now Brad Bird, so it will be Brad Bird’s ‘Mission: Impossible.’ ” Regarding his thoughts on the story line — which is, of course, very much under wraps — Cruise said simply: “It’s sick. It’s fun, really fun.”
So which Lost alum is joining the cast? Josh Holloway! Josh will play a member of the Impossible Mission Force, the high-tech and top-secret task force headed by Tom Cruise‘s character, Ethan Hunt.
This will be Josh’s first big feature-film role. He’s best known for playing Sawyer on ABC’s LOST.
Other cast members include Jeremy Renner (love him!), Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg.
