Jeremy Piven is set to share screen time with Tom Cruise in sci-fi film Edge Of Tomorrow, formerly known as All You Need Is Kill.
The Mr Selfridge star is the latest addition to the cast, and is said to be filming his scenes in the UK now that principal photography has already been completed, reported Deadline.
The 48-year-old Entourage actor has been cast as Colonel Walter Marx.
Tom is playing a military officer, who is killed within minutes of a doomed combat mission to take an alien race. When he wakes up, he is forced to relive the day over again, allowing him to be a better soldier and perhaps change his fate.
The Bourne Identity's Doug Liman is directing the action film, which is scheduled for release in June 2014.
Jeremy, who will reprise his role as retail mogul Harry Gordon Selfridge for the second series of the ITV period drama, will also appear in the Sin City sequel, A Dame To Kill For.
