  • Scott Eastwood Cast in Fast 8 as Kurt Russell’s Protégé

Scott Eastwood has been confirmed to play Kurt Russell’s character Mr. Nobody’s protégé in the upcoming Fast 8.

Just a few days back, we got the news that the ravishing Charlize Theron was going to play the next villain in the upcoming Fast 8 from the Fast and Furious franchise.

She was confirmed as a cast member in an official tweet from Universal studios. The specifics of her character are yet to be revealed but she has been confirmed to play the next villain and we know that she could be a great villain. 

Just recently, another addition to the Fast 8 family has been announced. Scott Eastwood is the son of the acclaimed actor, director and producer Clint Eastwood and the star of the Nicholas Sparks movie, The Longest Ride. Universal announced in a tweet similar to the tweet announcing Theron’s casting.

The tweet further revealed that he will be playing Kurt Russell’s character, Mr. Nobody’s protégé in the movie. If you remember, Mr. Nobody helped the team get the computer system from UAE while helping them escape Jason Statham’s character, Deckard Shaw. He gets wounded in the action sequence and asks to be left behind to be picked up by his own medical team. With Eastwood’s casting, fans are expecting to see Kurt Russell in the movie once more. 

There is a possibility that as his protégé, Scott Eastwood’s character will be representing him and we might not get to see Russell at all or Eastwood could be doing all the heavy lifting that Mr. Nobody himself won’t be doing. There are endless possibilities that come with the announcement of this role. Scott Eastwood is set to appear this summer in Suicide Squad.

Also joining the Fast 8 cast once more is Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw. Although his status in the movie is doubtful seeing that he went down with a building in Fast7.
