Keri Russell joins ‘M:I-3″

Keri Russell has joined the cast of Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible 3,” reuniting the actress with director J.J. Abrams. Russell will portray a trainee agent mentored by Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt character in the film, set to being lensing July 18 in Italy. Role had been filled last year by Scarlett Johansson before the film was delayed. Russell and Abrams broke through in 1998, when Abrams partnered with Matt Reeves to create “Felicity,” which turned Russell into a star and put the then-fledgling WB net on the TV map. She recently appeared in New Line’s ensemble drama “The Upside of Anger.”
