Fast & Furious 9 Casts Another Major Actor:
Fast & Furious 9 is coming in hot. We’ve already seen a trailer that has spawned limitless theories about the upcoming movies of the franchise. And now we’ve got another news update that will possibly lead us to have even more theories. Apparently, a new rumor suggests that Night at the Museum star Ben Stiller is going to join the cast of Fast & Furious 9.
It is obvious that Fast 9 was always going to add more new actors & characters. But we assumed that the new characters were possibly just John Cena’s Jakob and whatever role Cardi B is playing. But apparently a veteran Hollywood A-Lister is also joining the game as Page Six has reported that Stiller is a last minute addition & will film his scenes soon in the upcoming reshoots of the film.
Who is he playing? Is it just an irrelevant cameo like that of Kevin Hart in Hobbs & Shaw? Or is it someone important? Perhaps he might actually be set up as a big bad villain for Fast & Furious 10, who has been funding Charlize Theron’s Cipher all along. Or is he the leader of Eteon? We’ll have to wait and see if anything about Ben Stiller is in Fast 9 actually true.
Fast & Furious 9 comes out on May 22, 2020 & Fast 10 will arrive on April 1, 2021. Here’s the official Synopsis of Fast & Furious 9:
