We already know that for Dom Toretto, the most important thing in the world is family. And his will continue to grow in the next installment of ‘Fast & Furious’, which announces a new stellar signing: the great Rita Moreno.
EGOT-Winning ‘West Side Story’ Actress Joins Hit Action Franchise to play the grandmother of Vin Diesel’s character. As usual, it was the actor who announced the incorporation through his social networks, with a video with the 90-year-old actress, in which Michelle Rodriguez also appears.
“It has been my lifelong dream to work with Rita Moreno”says Diesel in the video, “and the fact that I’m here playing my grandmother makes my soul smile. I feel so blessed”to which Moreno adds, “You know what? I think my old age was waiting for you to invite me. And I’m already here, and the answer is yes, i will. And not only that, but I am very excited. It is going to be very fun“. “Rita Moreno in the house, baby!”, adds an enthusiastic Rodriguez at the end of the clip. Can’t wait to meet Grandma Toretto!
