Fast & Furious 9 already has some crazy twists and action scenes in the trailer, but the latest rumour is too crazy even for this series. So it was just denied. The crazy stunts of the Fast & Furious series sometimes take place during casting. A few years ago it would have been unthinkable for Oscar winner Charlize Theron to be a part of Fast & Furious and now her second film is on the line. But what the franchise lacks: comedians. And no, Tyrese Gibson doesn’t count.
A message had opened the all-important question in the past few days: Does Ben Stiller, the star from Zoolander and Tropic Thunder, actually play in Fast & Furious 9? First to the first message: According to the Gossip site PageSix, Ben Stiller should play in Fast & Furious 9. That’s it with the information. The news was then picked up by other media until the director and actor were forced to deny it.
Meaning not at all true, sadly. Though I wish them well with the franchise. Fingers crossed it takes off.
In any case, we find the news too entertaining to simply sweep it under the news table. It inspires, if not the real agent of Ben Stiller, at least our imagination. Of course, the performer would be conceivable in a serious role, for example as a new villain who kills a popular member of Dom’s crew in the closing credits before two films later are added to the family with a Corona beer baptism.

However, the perfect role for Ben Stiller in Fast & Furious 9 would be different. Imagine Derek Zoolander assessing Vin Diesel’s tank tops. And then, of course, there is the impressively simple, the perfect addition to the Fast & Furious family. Fast & Furious 9 will be released in German cinemas on May 21, 2020. Justin Lin is directing again; the other stars include Sung Kang, Helen Mirren, Lucas Black, Cardi B and Michael Rooker.
Are you looking forward to Fast & Furious 9 or should the brakes on the brakes.
