Gina Carano

While Jason Statham had better things to do than join the amped up "Fast & Furious" franchise, we have to say this bit of casting is a bit more inspired anyway.

THR reveals that "Haywire" star, MMA brawler and all around ass-kicking machine Gina Garano has landed a role in "Fast Six." While some folks had issues with her turn in Steven Soderbergh's film (which worked within the specific tone and tenor of the piece, but we digress), the 'Fast' series is about brawn first, everything else second, so she should do fine here. The plot of the Euro based entry is being kept secret for now, but Carano will be on Dwayne Johnson's team of Diplomatic Security Service agents looking to take down Bo and Luke Duke Brian O’Connor and Dominic Toretto (Paul Walker and Vin Diesel).

This is easily the most high profile role to land in Carano's ring since her stint in "Haywire." She's also lined up the "Taken"-esque thriller "In The Blood" but it's nice to see someone different from the usual dudes willing to mix it up on screen. The Justin Lin directed movie shoots this summer and lands on May 24, 2013.
