For his next Mission: Impossible movie, Tom Cruise will pull off a daring stunt—one that he’s never attempted before. The actor will enter the world of social media. Cruise (or one of the minions on his payroll) has finally joined Instagram.

It must have been a mini Mission: Impossible just to wrangle the @tomcruise account name from whatever industrious internet entrepreneur laid claim to it back in 2010.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the latest on Ethan Hunt, that clapperboard should tip you off to the fact that a sixth Mission: Impossible movie is due out this summer, with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to direct.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout will see Cruise reunite with the old IMF gang: Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Alec Baldwin, as well as Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Monaghan. The M:I veterans are joined by new franchise cast members Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby in a story that sees Hunt “in a race against time after a mission gone wrong.” Like, hanging-onto-the-side-of-a-helicopter-for-dear-life-wrong…
