Tom Cruise’s portrayal of Ethan Hunt is the cornerstone of the franchise, with his charisma and commitment to stunt work making these films exhilarating, even after 20 years of playing the character. Many of the other actors in Dead Reckoning Part 2 have also been part of the franchise for a long time, making their appearances highly significant.

Here are the characters and cast members who are returning to the next installment, Dead Reckoning Part 2.

1. Ethan Hunt

Hunt is a spy who has embarked on numerous missions throughout his career, but Dead Reckoning Part 2 finally confronts him with the consequences of his actions. Cruise has portrayed the character consistently since his debut in 1996’s Mission Impossible.

His comeback to headline the cast of Dead Reckoning Part 2 will make Ethan Hunt one of the most enduring action heroes in film history.

2. Luther Stickell

Luther Stickell is a long-standing character who first appeared with Ethan Hunt in the first Mission Impossible movie. He’s a loyal friend and ally, though his skills often keep him away from the field where he operates from behind the scenes. The character is played by Ving Rhames in Dead Reckoning Part 2.

3. Benji Dunn

Benji Dunn joined the series in Mission Impossible III as another supporter of Ethan Hunt, providing technical assistance and serving as his communication link during missions.

Benji also adds much of the humor to the franchise, lacking the same self-assurance and flair as agents like Hunt. Simon Pegg plays Dunn in Dead Reckoning Part 2. He has been the ideal choice for this comedic role, bringing a welcome dose of amusement to the Mission Impossible films.

4. Isla Faust

Isla Faust debuted in Mission Impossible Rogue Nation as another spy who clashed with Ethan Hunt, but the duo soon developed a strong connection. They also learned to support each other in their respective missions. The character is played by Rebecca Ferguson.

5. Grace

6. Alanna Mitsopolis

Alanna Mitsopolis debuted in Mission Impossible Fallout, though she’s better known as The White Widow. A criminal arms dealer and money launderer who helps Hunt and his team in their pursuit of Solomon Lane, Mitsopolis finds herself summoned again to aid Hunt in Dead Reckoning Part 1. Vanessa Kirby reprises her role from the first part.

7. Gabriel

The character of Gabriel is crucial to the plot of Dead Reckoning Part 1, as he’s the main villain who triggers the series of events that lead to the entire adventure.

The antagonist is played by Esai Morales, who is best known for playing Del, the main villain of Ozark’s first season showing that he’s got experience playing these kinds of menacing, mysterious antagonists.

8. Eugene Kittridge

Eugene Kittridge was introduced in Mission Impossible as the director of the Impossible Mission Force, though he didn’t reappear until his comeback as part of the cast of Dead Reckoning Part 1 and 2.

In the original movie, he didn’t trust Ethan Hunt and even blamed him of being a mole, so the duo has some conflict to resolve. He’s played by Henry Czerny.
