It would seem that for extra/actor Ted Cross, his love of Mary Elizabeth Winstead has superseded his commitment to the non-disclosure agreement he signed. Either that, or someone didn't tell him this was probably meant as a surprise. But the cat is out of the bag, and while the actress herself, when asked last fall, didn't think she would reprising her role as John McClane's daughter in "A Good Day To Die Hard," well, it looks like she's making a cameo appearance of some kind.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Live Free Or Die Hard

It would seem that for extra/actor Ted Cross, his love of Mary Elizabeth Winstead has superseded his commitment to the non-disclosure agreement he signed. Either that, or someone didn't tell him this was probably meant as a surprise. But the cat is out of the bag, and while the actress herself, when asked last fall, didn't think she would reprising her role as John McClane's daughter in "A Good Day To Die Hard," well, it looks like she's making a cameo appearance of some kind.

"Yesterday I worked as a member of a 'CIA' team. I'm the 'Man in Black', as they all kept calling me. I wish I could tell you everything about the scene, but that will have to wait until next year. It's a scene near the end of the movie. I got to work with Bruce Willis again, which is always nice. The best, though, was that I got to work with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Willis's daughter," Cross wrote on his blog (via Bleeding Cool). "I've had a crush on her ever since she was the lead actress in 'Scott Pilgrim vs the World.' That's a terrific movie if you haven't seen it yet."

Yes, we've all had a crush on Winstead since 'Scott Pilgrim,' and while it's interesting that she'll be back in some shape or form for the next "Die Hard" movie, the one we're most excited about is "Smashed." The drama, in which she co-stars with Aaron Paul of "Breaking Bad" fame, was a huge success at Sundance in January, winning a special jury prize with lots of Oscar talk percolating around the movie. And now, Sony Pictures Classics has confirmed it will be in the hunt, slotting the movie with an October 12th release date. The story centers on a booze bonded couple whose relationship becomes tumultuous when the wife (Winstead) decides to go sober with her AA sponsor (Octavia Spencer) by her side. Paul plays her husband, with Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally among the supporting cast.

So come February, there is a possibility Winstead will getting ready to head to the Dolby Theater right at the same time as appears in theaters around the world in a blockbuster sequel, which is not a bad place to be at all.
