Cole said the role probably isn’t “what people are expecting” and joked that it might even be cut from the final edit.
He told Digital Spy: “Yeah, so we did Fast & Furious last summer. I believe they’ve been planning to release it in May next year because it was supposed to be May this year, but they pushed it a whole year to May 2021. That looks like it’s going to be the day.
“And I have a small role in that, but quite an important role. And it’s probably not what people are expecting.”
He added: “I mean, I don’t know how much – I might be cut out of the film, for all I know.”
Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto and Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Ortiz will reunite for the next adventure in the franchise, which currently has a May 28 release date in the US. Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), the presumed-dead Han Lue (Sung Kang) and The Fate Of The Furious (2017) villain Cypher (Charlize Theron) are also set to return.
He said of working with the Oscar-nominated actress: “I’ve admired her career, choices and taste, but not only that. It was her attitude, her personality, her way of dealing with people who are working for her – it gets the best out of those individuals creatively.”
