It’s hard to put into words how excited I am for the next Fast & Furious. To me, the series is so much more than just a franchise. It’s a legacy. These great actors who have been in it together for so long have become a family. I absolutely can’t wait to join it.
Now I can’t say too much, but I get to play a new character who operates under Kurt Russell in the movie, which is incredible, because Kurt was a total childhood hero of mine growing up. Very much looking forward to learning a thing or two from such an original and cool guy.
Paul was a close friend of mine. We surfed together, traveled together, and he was a huge role model and influencing figure in my life when I was younger. He still is. He was an older brother to me. For me to be able to add to the F&F story, Paul’s story, and the FAST family is like a dream come true.
Gary Gray and Neal Moritz – I can’t wait to get started and dive in. Vin – thank you for the support and the insight.
Paul – I am going to make you proud.
So I can’t even lie, I got a little bit emotional reading that, I mean he was close with Paul and now he is joining a movie that Paul should have been a part of.
In reality I don’t think that it is cool that they will be making another installment of this movie due to Walker’s untimely death but hey, Hollywood is about money and this movie will definitely be making money. They just recently announced Charlize Theron was going to play the villain and now adding the newest hottest actor in Hollywood to the cast? All smart moves by casting, I have to applaud them.
You know I have to admit, Scott is coming in really hot and I don’t think he is really riding on his father’s coattails either. I give him credit for waiting a bit before starting a movie career.
Are you excited for ‘Fast 8’?
