Top Ten Actors We Want to See In the Fast & the Furious Series

2015's 'Furious 7' was a bigger success than anyone could have predicted. I, being a long-time fan of the series, was especially pleased with the overall reception of what has been the best feature in the series so far. And now, thanks to the 1.5 billion dollars it's made at the global box office, we're sure to be getting an eighth installment. But with the devastating loss of Paul Walker, the franchise is likely going to attempt to bring back as many series veterans as they can to fill the void. So who do we want to see return? That's what this list is here for, folks!

The Top Ten

1 Samuel L. Jackson Samuel Leroy Jackson is an American actor and film producer. He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Jungle Fever, Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance, Jurassic Park and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction, Jackie ...read more.

I don't think it would matter what role he'd play. It would be stupendous to see him as a villain or as a new ally to the crew. - BKAllmighty

2 Helen Mirren Dame Helen Lydia Mirren, is an English actor. Mirren began her acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1967, and is one of the few performers who have achieved the Triple Crown of Acting, having won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2007, after two previous nominations, for her performance ...read more.

She was already in Fate of the Furious, and is confirmed for both Hobbs and Shaw, and Fast 9

Both Mirren, herself, and Vin Diesel have been very vocal about their desire to have her star in the franchises' eighth installment. It's been reported that she'd likely play the vengeful mother of Owen and Deckard Shaw, which would be awesome! - BKAllmighty

3 Tom Hardy Edward Thomas Hardy, CBE is an English actor and film producer. Originally a model, Hardy made his film debut in Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down.

Tom Hardy is on course to being one of the most acclaimed actors of today's generation and his many talents would surely not go to waste if added to a series as awesome as 'Fast & Furious'. - BKAllmighty

4 Zoe Saldana Zoë Yadira Saldaña Nazario (born June 19, 1978) is an American actress and dancer. Following her performances with the theater group Faces, Saldana made her screen debut in a 1999 episode of Law & Order.

Yes, I know, she's a busy person these days. What with 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Star Trek' and the 'Avatar' sequels all happening already. But she's be a great fit, I think you'd agree. - BKAllmighty

5 Benedict Cumberbatch Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch is an English actor and film producer who has performed in film, television, theatre and radio.

His ability to be a really interesting villain is common knowledge, these days, so why not? The series has done well with British villains before (the Shaw brothers) and could easily fir him into the picture. - BKAllmighty

6 Michael Keaton

After rejuvenating his career with his incredible performance in 2014's 'Birdman', it seems like a transition into another big franchise would be the next logical step for the veteran actor. And we'd all love to see it happen. - BKAllmighty

7 J. K. Simmons

Speaking of recent award winning actors, why not J. K. Simmons? Everyone loves him! And I mean everyone. Of course, we'd all love for him to be J. Jonah Jameson again first so if he's not otherwise busy, please feel free to join this series. - BKAllmighty

8 Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North. ...read more.

Her ever-bad ass self would be perfect for the franchise, and you know it. It would certainly be an effective box office draw, for one. - BKAllmighty

9 James Norton James Geoffrey Ian Norton is an English actor best known for playing Reverend Sydney Chambers in the ITV period crime series Grantchester and Prince Andrei Bolkonsky in the 2016 BBC mini series adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's novel War and Peace.
10 Jason Statham Jason Statham is an English actor. He is known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver.

I know he's already been a part of the series, but his role as Deckard Shaw was so much fun that we all want him to come back. As of June 2015 all things point towards his return to the franchise, with him, himself, making the announcement of his immediate return to the series for the (as of yet) untitled 'Fast & Furious 8'. - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11 Julia Roberts Julia Fiona Roberts is an American actress and producer. She became a Hollywood star after headlining the romantic comedy Pretty Woman, which grossed US$464 million worldwide.

There are endless ways to get a brilliant actress like Julia Roberts into a series of this calibre. Hey, they did it with Kurt Russell. - BKAllmighty
