Superman actor Henry Cavill has joined the upcoming sixth instalment of the Mission: Impossible series, director Christopher McQuarrie announcing the news in a particularly original way.

"Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you're interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure,” he wrote on Instagram. 

Soon enough, Cavill replied “How can I say no to a man with such perfect hair,” to which the director wrote: “Excellent. Just a few caveats: must enjoy extreme heights, high speeds, motor vehicles of all varieties (especially aircraft), practical stunts, firearms, and sporadic exposition. All good?”

“Only if I get to fly for real,” Cavill wrote, McQuarrie responding: “I do believe I specified practical stunts. You in?”

The Justice League actor confirmed “Oh ok….. I'm in!” with McQuarrie concluding the correspondence with: “Outstanding. Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self-destruct in 5 seconds.”
