Australian actress Ruby Rose might finally join the powerhouse cast of “Fast and Furious 8.” Reports claimed that the actress should have joined “FF7” but the production disagreed because of her “association” with Justin Bieber.
The “Orange is the New Black” star revealed on The Today Show that she was chosen for the recent “Fast and Furious” movie, but because of her spitting image of JB, they turned her down.
“My last audition before Orange was for Fast And Furious 7, but they didn’t want me because one of the main guys said I looked like Justin Bieber!” Rose revealed to OK! Magazine, quotes Daily Mail.
The actress also admitted that after auditioning for “Fast and Furious 7”, she is again in talks with the production team to join “Furious 8″.
“It’s so funny because now I’m in talks with that movie and I haven’t mentioned to them that I know [they turned me down because I looked like Justin],” Ruby revealed to Today Show Australia.
Rose has achieved great success after joining the TV series, “Orange is the New Black”.
After her OITNB debut, Rose revealed that several networks started to make offers for promising roles, but did not specifically drop any hints.
Will fans see Ruby Rose in the 8th franchise? Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Meanwhile, another “Fast and Furious” star is currently in negotiations for a possible movie spin-off. Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who plays as CIA agent Luke Hobbs, reportedly said that he is just done talking with Universal.
“We all are interested in it. I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we’ll see,” The Rock said, quotes Screenrant.
“I still think for me personally we’ve created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want. That’s my take on it, you know, but a lot of other people have to have input.”
“Fast and Furious 8” is expected to hit the big screen on Apr. 14, 2017.
