Fast & Furious 8 News

Scott Eastwood officially joins the Fast & Furious franchise.

In Furious 7 , the legendary Kurt Russell joined the ever-expanding F&F family in the role of Mr. Nobody, a covert operative who eventually needed Dom (Vin Diesel) and his team to pull off a complicated job. It was believed that Mr. Nobody would continue to use Dom and his crew in the next few chapters of the Fast saga, possibly leading to the shift of venue cities to New York (as has been reported). Now we know that Scott Eastwood will be working for Russell’s team, which might put him at odds with Dom, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Hobbs (The Rock) and the crew.

Eastwood revealed the news in this letter to the Fast & Furious fans via his instagram page:

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.

This news of Eastwwod joining the franchise comes weeks after it was announced Mad Max Fury Road star Charlize Theron would play the villain.
