Joe Taslim fast furious 6 The Raid: Redemption Star Joe Taslim Joins Fast and Furious 6

With the huge success of ‘Fast Five’ financially and critically, more adrenaline filled action, car racing shenanigans, and manly pouts scowls were always going to be heading our way. Following on from the recent additions of Gina Carano and Luke Evans, Variety reveal that Joe Taslim (The Raid: Redemption) has joined the growing cast of Justin Lin’s ‘Fast and Furious 6.’ Taslim will reportedly play the villainous role of Jah, a cold-blooded killer who uses his martial arts and parkour skills to fight the films protagonists, led by Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. While plot details are scant, it has been rumoured that ‘Fast and Furious 6′ involves the crew heading overseas to work on a heist job that Evans’ rival crew has already staked out

‘Fast & Furious 6,’ the next installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, has been scheduled for release May 24th, 2013. Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return to produce, while director Justin Lin is again helming the film. The end of ‘Fast Five’ teased the return of Eva Mendes and Michelle Rodriguez, so I’d image ‘Fast and Furious 6′ is likely to feature a HUGE cast if all are returning from ‘Fast Five.’ That film starred Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Elsa Pataky, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar.
