Tom Cruise Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

8 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Tom Cruise was the latest celebrity to accept the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness and money for Als, but, in Cruise's case, the star's video challenge featured plenty of his signature action. Wearing shades and standing next to his Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise accepted the chilly challenge that had come his way from Hugh Jackman and the cast and crew of Pan. "Hit it," Cruise said, taking off his sunglasses, before he and McQuarrie were hit by not one but seemingly endless buckets of ice water. "How much more?" the dripping 52-year-old breathlessly gasped. Cruise and »

Tom Cruise Gets Drenched Accepting Pan Cast's Ice Bucket Challenge

9 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

2014 is evidently the summer of the Ice Bucket Challenge -- an effort to raise money and awareness for Als -- and the trend has very clearly spread to movie sets. In the video above, Tom Cruise and Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie are accepting the Pan cast's Als Ice Bucket Challenge on behalf of the cast of MI5. And if you haven't seen it already, here's the Pan cast's challenge to them: Hugh Jackman shaved his head for his Pan role, what's a little bit of ice water for a good cause? The Pan cast challenged Tom Cruise and the entire cast of Mission: Impossible 5, Oscar Isaac and the cast of Star Wars, and talent agency William Morris Endeavor. Tom Cruise and Mission: Impossible 5 director Chris McQuarrie accepted the challenge, and in absence of the rest of the cast, Cruise and the director took multiple buckets of water. »

Ving Rhames Set For ‘Mission: Impossible 5′

19 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

In what’s probably the least surprising return to a franchise, Mr Ving Rhames has been confirmed to return by director Christopher McQuarrie via the medium of Twitter.

His little cameo at the end of the impressive Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol was possibly a little nod to future team-ups and so this news isn’t exactly a surprise but will see him gloriously to the great little cast of Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg. Sadly it seems that Paula Patton won’t be returning, even though she seriously kicked ass in the previous mission. I’m wondering if she couldn’t get over the death of Sawyer from Lost, or the fellow recruit played by Josh Holloway that she lost. No bad pun intended.

I can’t wait to see Imf agent Luther Stickell once again as this franchise I’ve really enjoyed since it came back in »

Ving Rhames Confirmed to Return to Action in 'Mission: Impossible 5'

18 August 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

At one time, there were rumblings that Jeremy Renner might take over the Mission: Impossible franchise from Tom Cruise as the latter superstar seemed to be fading from box office glory. But Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol proved to be a big success, and Cruise is still very much on board to star in Mission: Impossible 5 from director Christopher McQuarrie, and Renner will be back in a supporting role along with the return of Simon Pegg. Now one more franchise star is back as McQuarrie himself took to Twitter to welcome back Ving Rhames to the production, reprising his role as Imf agent Luther Stickell. Read on!

Ving Rhames Will Be Back For 'Mission: Impossible 5'

18 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Longtime fans of the Mission: Impossible film series should appreciate this.

Director Christopher McQuarrie has taken to twitter to announce that Ving Rhames, the only M: I star not named Tom Cruise to appear in all of the films so far, will be back for the fifth installment. Rhames's Luther Stickell first appeared as an ace computer hacker in the original film, which was directed by Brian De Palma. Since then, his role has become smaller- sometimes only appearing in a single scene for a quick cameo.  

Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary

— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014

No word yet on whether his role will be more substantial this time, as the plot details for the film have been kept tightly under wraps. Expectations for the movie are pretty high, though, considering that the last one, Ghost Protocol, singlehandedly revived the franchise- which many had thought »

Ving Rhames Will Return For Mission: Impossible 5

18 August 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his Luther Stickell only had a brief cameo appearance in 2011′s excellent Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Ving Rhames, who starred in the franchise’s first three entries alongside Tom Cruise, is apparently returning in a larger capacity for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5.

An expert computer hacker with the Imf, Stickell was last seen grabbing a drink with fellow Imf agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) after the central mission of Ghost Protocol. Though the character was never involved with that high-stakes mission to stop a nuclear attack on the United States, he did tell Ethan “see you in Kandahar” before departing, possibly setting up a storyline for Mission: Impossible 5. Thanks to director Christopher McQuarrie, at least we know now that Rhames has a part in the fivequel:

In case you were worried about the continuity of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise, never fear: Ving Rhames will be back once again for "Mission: Impossible 5." Director Christopher McQuarrie confirmed the actor's return on Twitter, with Rhames reprising his Luther Stickell role.

Ving Rhames Returns For Mission: Impossible 5

18 August 2014 12:23 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Throughout the Mission: Impossible franchise, there have been two constants. The first is Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt, dangling from a thing and looking good doing it. The second is Ving Rhames' Luther Stickell, laughing the laugh of the one man who has survived working with Hunt for more than a decade. And now director Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed that he will return for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5.Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014There has been no word yet on a plot for the film, or whether it will end up with a Ghost Protocol-style subtitle, but we do know that it will be shooting in Vienna, starting any day now, and in London.

Ving Rhames returning for Mission: Impossible 5

17 August 2014 10:45 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Mission: Impossible 5 is set to restore a familiar face to its ensemble, with franchise regular Ving Rhames in place to join the cast. Director Christopher McQuarrie broke the news by tweeting, “Welcome back Mr. Rhames”, confirming that his character, Luther Stickell, would be making a return. Rhames was a regular in the first three films of the series, before sitting out the most recent outing, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, but for a tiny cameo at the film’s end. Plot details are pretty sketchy at this point, although...

Christopher McQuarrie confirms the return of Ving Rhames for the next Mission: Impossible movie...

Production on the fifth Mission: Impossible film gets underway in the UK later this year, with Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie reuniting with Tom Cruise to direct the film. Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner are also confirmed to return, with Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson set to be amongst the new additions to the cast.

On his Twitter feed, Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed the return of Ving Rhames too, hopefully in a bigger role that we saw him in towards the end of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol back in 2011. Rhames will reprise the role of Luther Stickell, having played the part in every Mission: Impossible film to date.

The film is due in cinemas in December 2015.

Mission: Impossible 5 Welcomes Back Ving Rhames

17 August 2014 7:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol felt like a mini-reboot for the franchise as it came off more like a team movie rather than Ethan Hunt and Friends.  Oddly, it was a team movie missing Hunt’s long-running teammate, Luther Stickell, who was played by Ving Rhames, although he did have a cameo at the end. Thankfully, it looks like Luther is back in the Imf as Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie has tweeted “Welcome Back, Mr. Rhames” and then Cc'ing the Twitter handles for co-stars Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner.  While I’m a little bummed that Paula Patton isn’t returning, I’m glad Rhames is back in the mix.  As we previously reported, Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson may also join the picture.  Mission: Impossible 5 opens December 25, 2015.

Ving Rhames will appear in Mission: Impossible 5.

The actor was welcomed to the production on Twitter by director Christopher McQuarrie, who used the hashtag "MI5Diary".

Rhames has appeared in all four previous instalments of the series as Luther Stickell, and is the only character besides Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) to do so.

He'll join returning cast members Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner, as well as new female lead Rebecca Ferguson.

Welcome back, Mr. Rhames.

Mission: Impossible 5 Is Bringing Back Ving Rhames

17 August 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Tom Cruise is certainly the true headliner of the Mission: Impossible franchise, he's not the only recurring star. He only had a cameo appearance at the end of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but Ving Rhames is the only actor other than Cruise to appear in all four of the series' titles. We had very little doubt that he wouldn't be getting the call to return for the in-development Mission: Impossible 5, but now it seems the deal is officially sealed. If Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie's official Twitter feed can be considered a reliable source (I think it's safe), then it seems that Ving Rhames has officially come aboard for the sequel: Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014 In the Mission: Impossible movies, Rhames is known for playing Luther Stickell, an Imf agent who works alongside Crusie's Ethan Hunt »
