Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation | Exclusive Benji Featurette

Tom Cruise may be the headliner in the popular Mission: Impossible movies, but die hard fans of the franchise know that Simon Pegg is secretly the star. Cruise has all the stunts but Pegg, as Ethan Hunt’s I.T. guy Benji, has our hearts. He’s the spy fanboy who actually gets to go along on the missions and prove he’s just as capable of saving the world as anybody, even though he never gets to wear those awesome masks.

With Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation turning out to be one of the best films of the year, we’re especially happy to present to you this exclusive, Benji-centric clip from the new Digital HD release. Go behind the scenes with Simon Pegg to learn more about your favorite character (whom we are assuming is Benji), and see the film in Digital HD tomorrow, November 17, 2015, four weeks before the DVD/Blu-ray debut on December 15!
