Luke Evans to Play Villain in FAST AND FURIOUS 6
Immortals star Luke Evans has been offered the role of the main villain in director Justin Lin's Fast and Furious 6. This is the same role that they wanted Jason Statham to play, but because he couldn't do it they moved on to Evans who is also a pretty solid choice. Sure, he's no Statham, but I think he'll end up doing fine in the role if he ends up accepting the offer. The actor can currently be seen in The Raven, and he also has a role in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, which comes out later this year.
Evans would join Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriquez and possibly Gina Carano in "their most dangerous adventure yet" which is going to be a heist film.
