    Wow I had no idea Hoult was casted to be the villain of MI7 unless I completely forgot about it. Esai Morales is a great replacement though and if you've seen his version of Deathstroke on Titans you would know that he can definitely play a really menacing/threatening villain. I really hope he isn't wasted, but I do have faith in McQuarrie.

    Great choice. I wonder how much that'll change the character since Morales is almost twice the age of Hoult.

    Aw that's kind of a bummer. I really like Hoult.

    I like the other guy from Ozark too, but Hoult seemed more interesting

    Hoult’s never very interesting to me.

    I definitely consider this an upgrade. :up:

    He was cast in January and Mcquarrie was hoping he would raise hell

    This must hurt for Hoult especially if the other project in conflict is a smaller more low profile role but yeah like the article said, we shouldn’t be surprised with the cast shakeups.

    He's probably not the only actor this year to lose out on roles. The delay of not starting has hampered actors scheduled start dates

    Sucks he lost Batman and Mission Impossible.

    Agreed. Morales has more gravitas. But they are such a different age group it makes me wonder if they re-wrote the character.

    Hoult loses out once again. Pretty good replacement.

    Did we ever find out what villain Hoult was supposed to be?

    This is a weird recasting given the age difference. Hoult is amazing on The Great though. I highly recommend it.

    Yeah, they could have turned to someone like Taylor-Johnson. Maybe there are some other factors.

    Do we have confirmation Angela Basset will return in either MI:7 or 8?

    I was never impressed with Nicholas Hoult, so yeah not a loss at all.

    While I disagree with you about Hoult - I met him last year a really friendly, nice guy.

    I know a lot of nice people too - who aren't great in acting as well.

    I don’t know why Hoult gets so much hate around here. I’ve always liked him as an actor and he’s definitely versatile.

    Fair comment.
    Honestly I've always thought him a good actor, right since About a Boy. Agree to disagree I guess.

    He was also good in Sand Castle, a movie where Beast, Superman, the Shocker and President Obama tried to fix a water pump in Iraq.

    He’s a versatile actor but boring screen presence to me, tbh.

    Agree to disagree sister. But it's a moot point because he's now " Sir Not appearing in this film":D:pal:
