Kurt Russell Joins ‘Fast 7′!

He'll join Vin Diesel, The Rock and Jason Statham.


A few weeks ago, Denzel Washington had turned down a role in the upcoming ‘Fast and Furious 7.’ Now, Variety is reporting that the great Kurt Russell is in talks to step into the part instead. Goodbye, Mr. Washington. We love you, but this is a case where you will not be missed.

Fans of good things will know Russell from ‘Escape From New York,’ ‘Big Trouble in Little China,’ ‘The Thing’ and ‘Death Proof.’ Fans of bad things will know him as that cool guy who always elevates whatever movie he’s in by sheer force of will. In other words, he’s a perfect fit for the increasingly loony ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, which prides itself on adding to its ridiculously macho ensemble with each entry. Few actors contain even a sliver of coolness that can match Russell.

The details of the role remain under wraps, but the fact that they’ve been pursuing a big name for the part suggest that it’s a big deal, even if it’s a supporting turn. We can see Russell easily playing either a hero or a villain in this series, but let’s face it: hero would be ideal because we’d get to see Snake Plissken kick ass alongside The Rock and Vin Diesel.
