See Tom Cruise As A Russian(?) Soldier In MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE IV!!

Merrick here...
Accidental Sexiness, which I am guilty of, has some photos of Tom Cruise in disguise as (apparently) a Russian soldier ion the Prague set of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE IV. Follow the image to a gallery of approx 12 more pics (including Cruise in what looks like a Springsteen shirt).
We learned earlier this week that Josh Holloway (Sawyer from LOST) would be joining Ethan Hunt's Impossible Missions Force this time around.

    ...but that looks like a kid dressed like an older dude. Well, that's actually a compliment; maybe Cruise really is the vampire Lestat. The guy seems ageless.

    A good spy thriller. There's not a dull moment in that movie. They need Brian DaPalma back. I love JJ, but he's more flash than substance.

    Gorky Park Remake

    by GCH888

    Rather than trying to reimagine Jack Ryan every 5 years Hollywood should now at the Arkady Renko franchise based on the Martin Cruz Smith novels. Now that it's cool to have Russian heroes (look at Salt) I think a series of films based on the Russian Chief Investigator would be interesting. At least it'll be more interesting than Jack Ryan, the most boring and uninteresting fictional character committed to film.

    Can't Wait. Love Both 1 and 3

    by Crow3711

    Despite of, and because of, they're differences. Obviously one is a fantastic spy film. But three is a fantastic action film. 2 is just...a film. I'll leave it at that. Don't where this one will fall in the spectrum of course, but the combination of Cruise, Abrams, Bird, Renner, and Holloway has me pretty fuckin ready for this one. Maybe its not the most original thing in the world, but at the very least I can be almost one hundred percent sure that it will be worth my ten dollars. I unabashedly love me some Cruise.

    by twogunjames

    You can deny it all you want, but Cruise is a powerful human being who has been trained to fight aliens with his mind. That means, quite simply, that he could kill us all with a single thought. You just remember that next time you make fun of him. Jerks. You're just jerks. That what you are.

    From Cruise' roommate's Twitter..

    by UltraTron

    "Room-mate asked for the room till midnight. I went into molly's room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay," Mr Ravi wrote on Twitter on 19 September. Two days later Mr Ravi wrote: "Anyone with iChat, I dare you to video chat me between the hours of 9:30 and 12. Yes it's happening again." Gay rights organisations say Mr Clementi's suicide is an example of a nationwide problem - young people killing themselves after being bullied over their sexuality. Ok so you can face 5 years in prison just for leaving a webcam on in a room. Next thing ya know your gay roommate is having sex in front of it- then he jumps off a bridge when he realizes it was broadcast on the net. I don't exactly see this case as bullying someone over their sexuality.Sounds like someone in college with a webcam who is into Twitter and happened to have a gay roommate.

    by The Founder

    I want to see another Mission Impossiable film but Cruise should focus on more films where he can shine as an actor in like a drama or Comedy and he can do supporting. The man has proven himself as lead actor many times over and he's nearing 50. He should be moving past them roles. Not give them up but an overblown and hyped flick that underperforms is what he don't need. The guy has to worth a billion dollars or damn near by now. He's got nothing to prove to anyone.

    Again, they've started shooting this already!?

    by napper_tandy

    I've high hopes for this one. The only guy I was more excited to see direct than JJ Abrams was Brad Bird! "Incredibles" showed he gets a lot of the James bond style, and I hope he brings some of that fun & stlye into "The Lost World- Mission Impossible" (or whatever subtitled/alternate title we see). I still feel something is missing from each of the 3 to make them great. MI-1 had some great moments, but the film still had a few pacing issues, and was a bit too convoluted at the end. MI-3 started very promising but ultimately resembled a television show a bit too much, and fell apart at the 3rd act with little climax or plot-tension. I think JJ Abrams matured leagues as a director with Star Trek. The only Mission film i was fully satisfied with (in its own style) was MI-2. It knew the ridiculous animal it was supposed to be, and it took full advantage of it. It's not the most cerebral, but it did the most with the materials it was given.

    Nice to know there's laws to protect you after you're dead from terminal Internet embarrassment. I wonder if it says in the webcam manuals -WARNING- don't broadcast your gay roommate having sex on the net you crazy fraternity prank pulling kids. You know not what you do! You're gonna burn for it! Even if it does say that nobody ever reads instructions. People should definitely be protected from private invasion at this level. However this sounds like a case of the true villain being technology that's as dangerous as a gun being handed to some dumbasses. How easy is it to turn on a webcam and suddenly- doh! It's online. Doesn't take the Mod Squad to set up surveillance at that level. This is an interesting case.

Yes. 100%. Again I apologize.<br> <br> Scientology is BS but the followers of David Ickes are even worse (and dumber). look him up on the web and be prepared to laugh.

    Impressive. I actually thought both MI 1 and 3 were pretty good (at least good entertainment). MI:2 was horrible - but I have to say the whole concept of changing directors around with the same series is pretty interesting. As for Cruise, he's a bit of a nutjob, but overall he's created a pretty decent body of work, and he remains watchable (as for the Tropic Thunder appearance, while funny I thought it was a bit desperate but I guess it worked)..

    Last MI movie was awesome

    by HarryBlackPotter

    Better than the Bourne movies. First one was pretty good, but I admitt the 2nd was poor. Hope this franchise gets better and better. Would be cool though if Nathan Hunt went the way of Jim Phelts from the first one and goes 'bad' after all the shit he's endured.

    Is it too much too ask...

    for this movie to finally resemble the tv series that it's supposed to be based on?!
