Ving Rhames showed up on Lopez Tonight, to promote Piranha 3D and let everyone know he’s black (his skin color seems to get worked into nearly every sentence), and while he was there he dropped the news that he’ll be back for the next Mission: Impossible. Rhames says rather simply, “I’m about to do Mission: Impossible 4.

He showed up in all three previous movies as Ethan Hunt’s tech expert Luther, every spy has to have one. No surprise that he’ll return. Interestingly during the interview he revealed that in the original Mission: Impossible Luther was supposed to be killed off in the first six minutes with Emilio Estevez and the rest of Ethan Hunt’s slain, original M:I team. The way Rhames tells it, he talked Depalma into letting him live by complaining that the black guy always gets killed first. I’m not entirely sure I buy that.

You can watch the entire Lopez Tonight interview with Rhames, in which he also reveals that Stanley Tucci of all people, is responsible for his name.
