MI: IV Peggs Down Cast
The nerdy technician prevails?

Mission Impossible: IV may have a decisively mysterious plot thus far, but as director Brad Bird has actors lining up to read for roles, the cast is taking form.
Joining Tom Cruise and small group of rumored cast members (such as Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is Simon Pegg, the previous M.I. film’s tech nerd (and Star Trek’s Scotty).
Pegg, also known for Shaun of the Dead, is in talks to reprise his role as Benji Dunn in the fourth M.I. flick. This announcement is likely just one of many, as Bird is spending this week casting, with the film set to start production in September.
Produced by Cruise, J.J. Abrams and Paula Wagner, the fourth and potentially final film is projected for a late 2011 release.
