Simon Pegg has been cast in the upcoming Mission Impossible sequel alongside what appears to be a solid crew, including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ving Rhames, Laurence Fishburne, Billy Crudup, Keri Russell and Maggie Q, among others. The Shaun of the Dead star will play an ally of Special Scientology Agent Tom Cruise in what most likely will be some sort of comedic relief appearance. The blockbuster action film will open up on May 5th – coincidentally, right around the same time Katie Holmes is supposed to spit out Cruise's baby. Hmm, was this pregnancy planned on purpose to be used as a promotional device for the film? Considering Cruise and Holmes first announced their relationship right before they both had big summer films due out, it certainly does have one questioning their publicist. Oh wait, now it makes perfect sense. Nevermind.
