“Yes, absolutely,” Pegg told the outlet when asked if he’d be back. “I’m looking forward to that. I’ve already started eating one carrot a day in order to be in shape.”
The Dunn character made his debut in J.J. Abrams’ Mission: Impossible III and returned for Brad Bird’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
