Alec Baldwin has just been announced to play Ethan Hunt's boss in the next Mission: Impossible instalment. Reuniting with his [Rock of Ages](movie:44085) star Tom Cruise, he will be filling the shoes of the Lawrence Fishburne role from Mission: Impossible 3. Here's hoping not as another mole. No details have been given as to the size of this part yet, he might just have a scene or two like Anthony Hopkins in M:I 2 or he might have a more active role.
