Jason Statham in Fast and Furious 6?

That's what the folks at Ain't It Cool News are reporting. Actually, The Stath is said to only appear at the end of Fast and Furious 6 and will be the lead villain in Fast and Furious 7.

The fact that there is a Fast and Furious 6 AND 7 amazes me. Not that I don't dig the movies. I loved the first film and the fifth. The ones in between . . . meh. But I never thought this franchise would have these legs.

But I digress. Jason Statham was originally set to play the villain in Fast and Furious 6, but that deal didn't work out. To read all about how Statham fits into the series alongside Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Dwayne Johnson follow this link, but be ready for major spoilers.

In the meantime, what do you all think about The Stath appearing in a Fast and Furious movie? I'm down with it. The man deserves to be a bigger star than he is. Hopefully it can keep him out of the Direct-To-DVD market which, after a series of box office flops outside of The Expendables movies, he seems headed for.

And now for a first look at Fast and Furious 6 . . . and it does look awesome. Gotta say it.
