'Fast and Furious 8' Spoilers: Would Tom Hiddleston Join The Cast Of 'Furious 7' Sequel? [VIDEO]
Tom Hiddleston might actually be interested in joining Fast and Furious 8.
In a recent interview, Hiddleston expressed his inclination to be part of the franchise, revealing he is a huge a fan of the series. Speaking to Rolling Stone, the actor made the surprising revelation.
"In fact, I was just telling someone how much I love Furious 7," he told the magazine. "And they said, 'Are you kidding me?'.Dwayne Johnson flexes his arm, breaks open his cast and then says, 'Daddy has to go to work' - if you don't love that, I don't know how I can appreciate you as a human being."
Hiddleston could definitely fit the mold, and we are thinking more in a villainous role. He would be in great company too. It was recently revealed that Charlize Theron is coming on board to play an antagonistic role, as well as Game of Thrones' Kristofer Hivju.
Theron's record playing gritty roles, most recently blowing audiences minds away as Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. She has also just reprised her role as the steely Queen Ravenna in Huntsman: Winter War. Hiddleston's role as Loki from the Marvel movies gives him enough experience to crush in Fast 8. But...despite is his interest, it's not really that clear if he's available or if there's a part. So maybe the next one?
In other news, Jason Statham is also set to return as Deckard Shaw, the main villain in Furious 7.
Statham had confirmed the news about his return earlier last year. Making an appearance for the launch of the Fast and Furious based theme ride, "Supercharged," at Universal Studios Hollywood, he even dished some about the franchise's success.
The actor talked to Access Hollywood on the red carpet talking about Furious 7's immense success.
"Yeah, it just shows the fanbase is very unique. They really do relate to the characters. They love these characters. They've followed them for years and years," Statham said.
The actor also talked his excitement at returning for the next movie in the franchise.
"We're already talking about doing another one, Part 8. I'm a newcomer, I just got invited to the party on this last one. It is nice to know I'll be doing another."
Fast 8 will be released on April 15, 2017.
