The cast for the next Fast & Furious film just got a lot more marvelous. Franchise star Vin Diesel shared a photo of himself with Brie Larson today, revealing that the actress is the latest member of the Fast & Furious family and will have a role in the series’ tenth installment. Larson is best known to Marvel fans for her role in the Captain Marvel and Avengers films, although the actress already built a pretty notable resume before those blockbusters in the form of critically acclaimed features that include Room, the 2016 drama that won her an Oscar for best actress in a leading role. Diesel has seemingly been looking for additional star power to refuel the Fast & Furious franchise following his falling out with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has stated that he has no interest in returning due to their previous/ongoing feud.

“Yeah yeah yeah… you see this angel over my shoulder cracking me up, you say to yourself, ‘that’s captain Marvel,'” Diesel wrote. “Clearly there is love and laughter in this image. What you don’t see however, is the character you will be introduced to in Fast 10.”

“You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology,” the actor added. “Beyond her beauty, her intellect… her Oscar, haha is this profound soul who will add something you might not have expected but yearned for. Welcome to the FAMILY Brie.”

    I gotta give Vin Diesel and crew credit. They have made a solid, profitable franchise that rakes in BILLIONS of dollars for the entertainment they provide. I have no ill will to them.
  2. I'm not a fan of Brie Larson's but I'm not into these movies to begin with.
    I think the first two were fun brainless no-nonsense movies, but the rest are various degrees of terrible. I don't think I've even seen the latest one. And the ones that came out between Tokyo and Hobbs & Shaw I honestly can't even tell apart. Don't get me wrong, Tokyo was utter garbage, probably the worst of the movies, but at least it stood taller than the grass.
  3. Honestly, Vin is pushing 60 now, I think, it is time.
    That's baby-years for Hollywood, though. I mean... Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, Halle Berry (my-my-my), Meryl Streep, etc.

    Yeah, I'd say that Vin still has some time left... easily.

    With digital replacements/updates of characters being rather easy to do... I don't see actor age being an issue going forward. I also predict some actors will establish themselves then simply license out their look and sound to movies with contract requirements for roles and such and just be done with it at a certain point.

    Bruce Willice (sp) could do this no problem. Just license out his voice and look and let digital versions replace him.

    As an actor, sure. As an action hero? Not so much. The last movies I saw him in, his age was really showing. Slow and sluggish in action scenes, and he just looked old too. Some people age differently. Tom Cruise was still convincing in the last thing I saw him in, and Maverick was filmed years ago, so I think that will be OK as well.

    Yeah but Tom Cruise's Theta Count is through the roof, and he drinks the blood of newborns to maintain that. Not everyone can afford 3 newborns a day.
