It seems the idea of Brits being villainous in Hollywood movies isn't dead, as a few months ago it was rumoured Jason Statham was being sought to play the bad guy in Fast & The Furious 6. It appears that didn't work out, but they still want someone from the UK, as Twitch reports the role has now been offered to Immortals and Three Musketeers actor Luke Evans. It's still on the level of being a rumour at the moment, but may well turn out to be true.
There's no news on exactly who Evans would play, although it would play into rumours that after the US, Japan and Mexico, the franchise is heading to Europe for part six.
Evans has seemed poised on major stardom for a year or two now, but hasn't quite made it yet. However if he gets this part, along with his role in The Hobbit, it could tip him further towards the a-list. Fast & The Furious 6 is due out May 2013.
