What actor doesn’t enjoy playing “the heavy?” It’s always the most dramatically meaty of any script. According to Variety, Universal has set one of the final pieces of casting for FAST & FURIOUS 6. Luke Evans (THE RAVEN) is in final negotiations to star as the villain opposite Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson.
There was a question whether or not he’d be able to join the film as it posed a scheduling issue for the actor. But never fear! Evans has worked that out. He’ll have a quick turn around going from the Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT to the high octane thriller. Gives new meaning to strike while the iron is hot.
Plot details are being kept under wraps but it’s said it would involve the ragtag team heading overseas to work on a heist job. Evans would be the leader of another crew trying to pull off the same job.
Are you looking forward to the sixth instalment of this franchise?
