Last week, we reported that “Fast and Furious” co-star Michelle Rodriguez had confirmed Jason Statham’s involvement in the seventh installment by expressing her delight about Universal’s decision to cast him.
But the beautiful Latina actress is not the only one who can’t wait to work with Jason Statham. Co-star Paul Walker, who plays FBI agent Brian O’Conner, is also thrilled about the new British addition.
“Jason is going to be a killer addition. He’s super competitive too – I know it – but I think in terms of what he represents, he’s an iconic figure at this point,” he told the press at the world premiere of “Fast and Furious 6” in London, UK.
Paul added, “He’s been around kicking butt, driving cars and doing it well for a long time so when people see him step on screen, he automatically comes with a certain degree of reverence. So to go heads up with him is going to be fun, for sure.”
“Fast and Furious 7” is rumored to start filming in September, so keep your eyes and ears open.
