In his Twitter profile, the director Christoper McQuarrie revealed that Nick Offerman (‘Parks and Recreation’) and Janet McTeer (‘Ozark’) have been cast in mysterious roles for the 8th film in the franchise ‘Mission Impossible‘.
For now, there are still no details about the characters, as McQuarrie did not comment on the matter.
However, the images published by him give some clues, as the character of offerman is wearing a military uniform.
the character of McTeer appears in front of two men in suits with a serious expression, so she could be linked to some function of the spy agency that Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is part.
