By “old” in that headline regarding the next Mission: Impossible, I didn’t mean that to be read as “elderly,” but rather “familiar.” And by “new” I wasn’t implying that an infant would be getting a starring role (though that would be very interesting). but it just so happens that the familiar actor is “old”(er) and the unfamiliar one is younger.

So I have no idea what I’m saying. The “old” is Alec Baldwin, who, despite his interest in the returning to TV, has signed on to play the head of the CIA, hopefully in the same fashion he player a state police bureaucrat in The Departed. And Rebecca Ferguson, who just recently made her English-language debut in The White Queen on the BBC.

Why does a woman named Rebecca Ferguson not speak English as a first language? Because was raised in Sweden.

She will be playing the lead opposite Cruise, but little else is known.

My guess is this story is all a creation of his publicist, trying to make Jeremy Renner seem like more of an action hero, but in case Renner actually is this awesome, let’s report this.

Renner was grabbing a late-night (early morning, actually) drink in Thailand with his local guide, when the guide and some bar employees got into a fight about something or other. The guide dropped a glass on the floor when the six employees fell upon him, stabbing him in the stomach repeatedly because, hey, glass is a bitch to clean up. They then severed the guide’s neck tendons with a homemade axe (because where’s the beauty or charm in a store-bought one?).

Umm…AWESOME?

The original report said Renner suffered some minor injuries, but now it’s being reported that he booked it from the bar right when the shit went down.

If he was wearing his Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters outfit, I’m going to overdose on cool.
