Some casting information on the Fast and Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw comes our way. The film will see Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles in their very own film. The studio is seeking actors for a variety of roles, following below are character descriptions
For the role of Shaw’s sister:
The studio is looking for an actress, 28-39, in the mold of Kate Winslet to play Deckard’s sister, Hattie, who is “an MI-6 agent.”
Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs character will also have a family in the film.
“The studio is on the search for a Polynesian actress, 70-75, to play Sofia Hobbs, described as the “matriarch” of the Hobbs family and five Polynesian men, all 30-50, to portray Hobbs’s brothers: Jonah, Cal, Tim, Matt and Alex. “
For the role of the villain:
“The studio is looking for an actor, 49-59, to fill the role of Null who is described as a “British villain” and “mysterious international terrorist who dresses in all black.”
Hobbs and Shaw have become recurring characters in the film series, and their spin-off is fine with me as once the films shifted from street racing to becoming more of a crime/heist series, I found myself enjoying the movies much more, and this film will likely be in the same vein. Besides, I will watch Johnson and Statham in most any film.
