During the making of Mission: Impossible — Fallout, Tom Cruise suffered a stunt-related injury that shut down production of the film for more than a month. Co-star Simon Pegg, who has gotten to know Cruise well while they’ve made four M:I movies together, said he wasn’t surprised that something happened — he was just grateful it wasn’t something worse.
Mission: Impossible — Fallout is playing now in theaters everywhere.

Ryan Eggold may not be on The Blacklist anymore, but he’s still on Hollywood’s hot list. In fact, it hasn’t taken him long at all to find a new TV home, starring on the new series New Amsterdam, which comes to NBC this fall. It’s a medical drama, placing his character, Dr. Max Goodwin, in one of the country’s oldest hospitals, where he struggles to beat the bureaucracy and heal the sick.
