Philip Seymour Hoffman the Bad Guy for Mission Impossible 3

PhilSeyHof.jpgI’ve liked Philip Seymour Hoffman for a long time. But no matter how many great films he does or how many memorable performances he gives… to me he’ll always be Scotty from Boogie Nights!

So imagine my surprise… and delight… when I read that Hoffman is now officially on board for playing the villain in the upcoming Mission Impossible 3. The good folks over at JoBlo give us this:

Hoffman was Cruise’s top choice for the baddie in the previous Joe Carnahan version of the film that was to have starred Carrie-Anne Moss and Scarlett Johansson but because of scheduling reasons, they were unable to work out a deal. Instead, Cruise and Carnahan went with Kenneth Branagh to play the nemesis of IMF’s Ethan Hunt. But then, as you all know by now, Carnahan left the film, Cruise went on to film WAR OF THE WORLDS and Hoffman became available as the production was delayed.

Well this is good news. Perhaps with a start date for filming finally being announced and now this addition of Hoffman, the focus can be put back on the film instead of on Tom Cruise and his freaky behaviour lately.
