Tyrese cast in F&TF2?

05.16.2002

So who's ballsy enough to try and fill the shoes left behind by Vin Diesel in THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS 2?  How about an R&B singer with only one serious acting job behind his belt?  No, not Bobby Brown, but Tyrese who starred in last summer's BABY BOY (and has BASIC coming in 2003).  The singer, whose full name is Tyrese Gibson, is currently negotiating with the studio to join Paul Walker in the high-profile sequel.  Joining Gibson may be his BABY BOY director John Singleton, who is reportedly the top choice of studio execs and producers.  F&TF2 will follow Walker's character as he's given one last chance by the police department to earn back his reputation after the events in the original film.  In a separate deal, Universal (the same studio behind FAST) has also picked up a pitch by Tyrese for a thriller named EXTORTION, which he will star in and exec-produce.
