HOLLYWOOD, June 16 (UPI) -- Former "Felicity" star Keri Russell has signed on to portray a junior agent mentored by Tom Cruise's character in "Mission: Impossible 3."
The part reunites Russell with director J.J. Abrams in the movie that won a green light just last week from Paramount Pictures.
Paramount reached a deal with Cruise and co-executive producer Paula Wagner to cut the movie's budget and revise Cruise's profit-sharing deal, E! Online reported Thursday.
The movie is set for release next May.
