Mission: Impossible 4 Adds Anil Kapoor and Lea Seydoux
Despite already sporting a packed cast that includes Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Josh Holloway and Michael Nyqvist, apparently the folks behind Mission: Impossible 4 won't be satisfied until absolutely everyone is in their movie. Deadline and THR are reporting, respectively, that Anil Kapoor and Lea Seydoux have been cast in the upcoming action film. While the initial reports said that Kapoor, best known for his role in Slumdog Millionaire, would play a villain, Paramount has responded by saying that he will play an "integral supporting role," but it won't be one of the bad guys. Seydoux, on the other hand, will be a lead antagonist alongside Nyqvist.
I may be in the minority here, but I actually am finding myself looking forward to this movie. While the first installment was overly-convoluted and the second was nonsense, I enjoyed J.J. Abrams' contribution and while he doesn't have any live-action directing experience, I have confidence in Brad Bird for the fourth. Here's to hoping against disappointment.
