John Cena Joins Cast of 'Fast & Furious 9′

So, sorry to disappoint you, person who expected John Cena to play a cowardly weakling in the next Fast & Furious movie.

Universal Pictures confirmed today that the wrestler-turned-actor, who recently appeared in the acclaimed biographical dramedy Fighting With My Family, is on board for the ninth installment of the seemingly unstoppable movie series. Since then, it has spawned eight sequels, spin-off Hobbs & Shaw (produced and directed by The Rock), several video games and even a Broadway production.

There are only two types of people in the Fast & Furious universe: badasses and clowns. A few months ago, Vin Diesel teased the very strong possibility of John Cena joining the franchise he [Diesel] has helped cultivate since 2001.

The first Fast & Furious raced into cinemas way back in 2001.
