If Clara Paget doesn't already like fast cars, she's at least going to start acting like she does.
The British actress-model is gearing up for what could be her real big-screen break as she joins the cast of "Fast and Furious 6," according to The Playlist.
Paget will be taking on the sidekick role of Vegh, who's described as a "gun-slinging action woman." Whether she's slinging guns as a sidekick to the good guys or the bad guys remains to be seen.
This will be Paget's first high-profile role, as she's previously only had bit parts in the likes of "One Day," "Johnny English Reborn" and "St Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold" (which is still one of the most delightfully awkward movie titles of all time). Get More »
A familiar face is returning to the world of hot cars and hotter women.
Michelle Rodriguez is set to reprise her role as Letty, the estranged (and, until now, missing) girlfriend of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), in a movie that we like to refer to as "Fast Six," according to The Playlist.
Rodriguez first played Letty in the original 2001 film, "The Fast and the Furious," and reprised the role in the fourth film in the franchise, "Fast & Furious." She also appeared played the part in the short film, "Los Bandoleros," which served as a prelude to "Fast & Furious." Get More »
Funny how fleeting one's coolness can be.
Vin Diesel is the current, undisputed personification of masculinity with his intimidating glares and carved marble physique. Yet long ago, in a decade now referred to as "the '80s," a young, lanky Diesel, er, Mark Sinclair Vincent, zippered up matching tracksuits with his crew, or "dance posse," coiffed his funky-fresh afro and boogied with beat-box abandon in a special breakdancing instructional video.
This summer, two of the most hard driving, piston-pounding movies of all time are taking another lap on the big screen with "Fast Five" (4/29) and "Cars 2" (6/24). Previous installments of both these franchises drove audiences to explosive levels of testosterone-injected excitement and mayhem!
You might say "Cars" put the car in cartoon while "The Fast and the Furious" pumped Vin Diesel into...well, there's no obvious automobile wordplay for his name...
We're pitting the supercharged vehicles of these two films head-to-head for the definitive showdown. Get More »
Ask a woman what she thinks of this hyper-macho series of movies and you might elicit yawns and eye rolls.
Yes, this testosterone fare is not much more than a gaggle of high-octane pissing matches and, indeed, there are fast chicks and faster cars but, ultimately, "The Fast and the Furious" series is all about bromance. These men jump into fistfights more passionately than any of their PG-13 love scenes (with women).
And for every hundred scantily clad, hoochie extras leaning on racecars, there are -- on average -- two strong female characters per film. Love 'em or hate 'em, there wouldn't be five, going on six, of these movies if they weren't cinematic rollercoaster rides. And what girl doesn't enjoy an adrenaline ride once in a while? Get More »
