Just when you thought that the cast for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two couldn't get more stacked, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie goes and proves us all wrong by adding Ted Lasso star and all-round multi-talented star Hannah Waddingham.

McQuarrie made his usual pictorial casting announcement via Instagram, with Waddingham looking intense on the deck of a US aircraft carrier, where the second of the Dead Reckoning movies has been shooting. The locale feels like familiar turf for M:I star Tom Cruise, but whether he hops into a fighter jet at any point remains to be seen. And will he try to win over Waddingham's character by bringing biscuits? Again: remains to be seen.

Alongside the returning core of Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson, we can expect to see the likes of Vanessa Kirby (back as Alanna Mitsopolis), Henry Czerny returning to play Eugene Kittridge from the first Mission movie plus Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham, Frederick Schmidt and Esai Morales, among others.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is due on 14 July, while Part Two rides a motorcycle off a cliff into cinemas on 28 June 2024.
