2024’s “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two” has cast Hannah Waddingham, who plays Rebecca Welton on Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso.” Christopher McQuarrie, the writer of the two upcoming “Dead Reckoning” films, revealed the casting on his Instagram account on Friday.

He captioned the photo of Waddingham with a cryptic tease, writing “#GodSpeed #DeadReckoning.” The photo appeared to be a still from the upcoming film, though McQuarrie didn’t provide any additional context.

 Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt in this summer’s seventh, and penultimate, instalment of his long-standing, action-packed franchise. Variety previously reported that he was filming the eighth movie aboard a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea, which is where the photo of Waddingham appears to be taken.

The seventh film has a few blasts from the past, including Vanessa Kirby as Alanna Mitsopolis, a black-market arms dealer who’s the daughter of Max Mitsopolis, played by Vanessa Redgraves in the first “Mission: Impossible” in 1996.

Henry Czerny also returns as Eugene Kittridge, the former director of the IMF who’s mysteriously back from the original “Mission: Impossible.” There’s also Hayley Atwell, Shea Wigham, Frederick Schmidt and Esai Morales, who plays the villain.
