Chris McQuarrie makes moves this Monday by sharing new character photos Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two. McQuarrie debuted two black-and-white images on social media, each focusing on a new character in the Impossible mission franchise. In the first photo, Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) looks stately and solemn in military gear. A name tag on his chest reveals part of his name as Sydney. In the second photo, Janet McTeer (Ozark) stares at the daggers as she considers her next move. She is dressed in a smart suit with an American flag attached to her lapel. If you look closely, you can also see Henry Czerny’s Kittridge, Holt McCallany as Defense Secretary Bernstein and Mark Gatiss in the pictures.
