The Fast and the Furious franchise has done an excellent job over the years at adding a famous face to the mix, usually to play a foil ,to Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. The Rock, Jason Statham and John Cena all have stepped up to the mic to play the franchise heel, and now we are hearing that Aquaman star Jason Momoa could be the latest action superstar to attach his name to the series, potentially in a villainous role.
The Hollywood Reporter breaks the news that Jason Momoa currently is in negotiations with Universal to join the tenth Fast and Furious movie, going so far as to say that he “could be poised” to serve as ONE of the film’s villains. This is intriguing because there are several other characters we think are going to be in the mix creating problems for Dom and his family. They include Jason Statham and Charlize Theron, who both are still alive and kicking up dust. And now Jason Momoa appears to be adding his name to the ever-growing roster.
In his own reporting regarding Jason Momoa joining the Fast and Furious franchise, Deadline’s Justin Kroll mentions the actor’s history with the series, saying that he has flirted with roles in the past… but not exactly for the main saga. Kroll tweets:
Universal had interest in Momoa playing one of Hobbs’ brothers in that film but his busy schedule ultimately led them to offering role to Roman Reigns instead.January 28, 2022
