Written by Alexander Tucker   // 07/30/2012

Joe TaslimJoe Taslim, The man dubbed The Next Action Hero, has just landed the biggest role of his life, a villain role in ‘Fast & Furious 6.’

 

Taslim gained world wide recognition for his role in Gareth Evan’s action thriller ‘The Raid.’ In the film Joe Taslim played Sergeant Jaka, team leader of the ill-fated SWAT raid operation.

 

Taslim joins a cast that already includes Gina Carano, Paul Walker, and Luke Evans, who played Zeus in the gory Immortals and could be the next-big-thing in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy. Fast & Furious favorites Vin Diesel, and Dwayne Johnson, will also return.

 

We don’t know much about the plot of Fast & Furious 6. We know Paul Walker and Vin Diesel’s crew will be heading overseas to London with Dwayne Johnson and his team hot on their trail. We know, our group of loveable anti-heroes will be working on a heist that Evans’ rival crew has already staked out and we know Justin Lin is directing and says he wants things to be more complex and not just, ”you run, I’ll chase you.”

 

We also know the film filming began today in London, and the release date is set for May 24th, 2013. Another thing we now know? Joe Taslin is going to infuse some serious physicality and martial arts into this series. So, get your popcorn ready.
