Lucas Black Returns to Fast and Furious

Maybe it’s the rush I’m still on after watching Fast and Furious 6 for the first time this past weekend (I know, I know I’m late) but upon (finally) reading confirmation that Lucas Black will be returning to the F&F series, I literally busted out a dance move at my cubicle. Sean Boswell’s return would be the logical step for the next film which chronologically follows his starring role in 2006’s Tokyo Drift. There has been much hype about other new casting choices such as Jason Statham, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounsou, and Ronda Rousey, but I, and many other fans I’m sure, have been waiting to hear about Black. I have been checking his Wikipedia page incessantly since the spring to see if his filmography would be updated with Fast & Furious 7, even if they were attempting to keep it hush-hush in the entertainment news. Tokyo Drift wasn’t necessarily my favorite film in the series, but it had Black as Boswell, along with Han, and introduced Drifting. I have been a fan of Black’s since American Gothic. That little boy could act! I’m sure his onscreen chemistry with Tyrese and Ludacris will be hilarious. I can’t wait to see what the next installment has in store for fans!
