John Ortiz Joins Public Enemies and Fast and Furious 4

For someone whose name is a total mystery to me, John Ortiz sure is one busy actor. Besides joining the cast of Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies” as Al Capone mob enforcer Frank Nitti, Ortiz will be seen in the upcoming “The Fast and the Furious 4″ movie with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. He talks more about his roles with MTV.

More:

“I’m going to be shooting ‘Public Enemies,’ that Michael Mann’s directing with Johnny Depp and Christian Bale,” said the “American Gangster” and “Miami Vice” actor. “And then, next is ‘[The Fourth] Fast and the Furious’ with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker coming back.”

“I’m playing Frank Nitti, who’s a Sicilian gangster,” Ortiz said of the man they called “The Enforcer”…

In real life, Nitti served as the right-hand man for Al Capone during his heyday, only to eventually go to prison and then commit suicide after his release. “He was already kind of established,” Ortiz said of the timeline in which “Public Enemies” will depict Nitti.

Okay, so he talks more about “Public Enemies” and not all that much about “The Fast and the Furious 4″. Considering his ability to pull off menacing facial hair, I’m gonna guess he’ll be playing either the head bad guy or the head bad guy’s right hand man in “FF4″, but I could be wrong.

    I heard that also but then I also heard that its happening in Mexico. I would say that Mexico is where its going to be, because if you watched the first movie, u should remeber that Domenic went to mexico after leaving Brian at the end of the movie. I really dont know why Brazil would be selected as the setting because it dosn’t have a backing in the car world like Japan or the U.S. does.

    I would say, Mexico for the Beginning (maybe by the beach) considering that is what Dom’s dream was about in the first one, Then back to So-Cal to fisish out the story, then maybe into S. America to catch the bad guys…but I doubt that would work considering Southern Cali is know as the United States mecha of import car performance and street racing.
