Sorry Rihanna, looks like Luke Evans was asked to be the villain in Fast & Furious 6

May. 1, 2012by: Niki Stephens

It's been reported that Rihanna was asked to play the villain in FAST & FURIOUS 6. Apparently, her acting in BATTLESHIP really wowed the studio so they thought she'd be a good fit. Now it seems that this may not be true. The casting part, not so sure about the "good acting" comment.

It seems that the role is being offered to THE RAVEN'S Luke Evans. This is the part that was supposed to go to Jason Statham until he turned them down. Looks like they are leaning towards the English chaps for a bit of villainy. Is the gang going to Europe? It's possible.

I must add that the rumors about Rihanna joining the cast originated from The Sun. 0% of the time, they are right every time.

Another noteworthy tidbit has to do with Michelle Rodriguez. She will return to the franchise as Letty. Rodriguez is also reprising her role in MACHETE KILLS. You go girl. Forget I just said that.

I liked Evan's Zeus character. He was the only good thing about Immortals. I can't believe Statham turned this role down. His current movie choices aside from Expendables(1-2) have been garbage. Safe looks like another crappy should of been direct to dvd type of film.

I've always felt sorry for Diesel in the first one, having Rodriguez as his love interest. No thanks.

Maybe Statham wants to avoid the villain roles. I guess he has enough money not to care.

This would be smart casting. Luke Evans is very solid. Especially as of late in Immortals and The Raven.

Some people make good decisions. Some people make bad decisions. I'll boldly say Statham falls into the latter category. A triple-threat between him, Diesel, and The Rock would have been epic. That aside, Luke Evans is cool in my book. He's one of those underrated types.

Jason Statham was asked to be in this, and he was supposed to be a villian! That would have been sweet! Bummer he turned it down! What's wrong with you Jason? Oh well, the last one was sweet, so I'm sure this one will be too!

jason statham must be pretty dumb.

he's been bogged down by generic action bombs lately (critically and financially). fast six is a guaranteed hit and he turns it down? maybe he wants to make "13 Part 2" first.
