“Fast & Furious” franchise star Vin Diesel has publicly welcomed Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson to the ‘F&F’ family. Diesel wrote in an Instagram post, which included a photo of him and Larson laughing together, “Yeah yeah yeah… you see this angel over my shoulder cracking me up, you say to your self ‘that’s captain Marvel. Clearly there is love and laughter in this image. What you don’t see however, is the character you will be introduced to in Fast10. You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology. Beyond her beauty, her intellect… her Oscar, haha is this profound soul who will add something you might not have expected but yearned for. Welcome to the FAMILY Brie. @brielarson.”
Larson has publicly expressed her desire to join the blockbuster franchise, saying in a past interview: “Please, please tell everybody I would, of course, want to be in a Fast & Furious movie. I’m obsessed. I love them. I think they’re so good. They’re so fun. And they’ve made me appreciate cars. And it’s something that should be appreciated. They’re incredible. So of course, please.”
