Angela Bassett has accepted the mission! She joins Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 6 in which she’ll play the C.I.A. Director. She will begin work next week.
This is the 123rd star that they’ve added to the roster. Whose next? Russell Brand? I like Bassett, though. She is one of the few actresses that I actually enjoy.
