Lil Wayne and Liza Lapira Joining Fast and Furious 4

76 Comments

Shooting on Justin Lin’s “Fast and Furious” is already well underway, but new castmembers are still being added. First up is actress Liza Lapira, who IMDB.com has listed as playing an FBI agent name Sophie Trinh, a character that will be giving Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner a hand tracking down some wanted felons. The other casting is rapper Lil Wayne, who is currently in negotiations to join the fourth installment in the popular car franchise.

News about Lil Wayne comes from Contact Music, who has no word on who Lil Wayne would play, but casting a well-known hip-hop artist would seem to jive with the previous “Fast and Furious” films. Ludacris filled the role in “2 Fast 2 Furious”, and “Lil Bow Wow” did likewise in the previous installment, “Tokyo Drift”, which was also directed by Justin Lin.

Fans of TV, especially CBS’ Navy NCIS, will probably recall Liza Lapira (pictured, below) as Special Agent Michelle Lee on the show. The Filipino actress was also recently in the surprise hit “21”, about MIT students who use their skills to break Vegas casinos.

“Fast and Furious” (aka “The Fast and Furious 4″) is due out in 2009.

    Tyrese part in the film…I dont know what happens to him…I think Tyrese maybe helps Brian for helping him clear his reccord in 2f2f….Tyrese might be rich now with the money he made in 2f2f…when the feds came for Brian to lock him up for the aftermath of f&f1…he saved Roman by telling him to disappear…At first Tyrese shouldn’t want to do it when Brian asks for his help….But Tyrese later he agrees…and meets him up in DR….surprising Brian with a uninformed visit….

    I think the storyline is going back in time…Like I think when Letty dies…The story goes back to the end of F&f 1….rising back to Letty’s death and stuff…so I think the movie actually takes place before 2f2f and during 2f2f….leading to after 2f2f with Paul and the Bradga deal….before drifitng was even popular…when it was all about drag…maybe before tuners were popular in Mexico…I dont know…Im just trying to make the script believable…

    Lets say Tyrese dies in this film…how do you think he should die?… I think while in a club…somebody from Bradga people is ordered to kill him quietly….while Tyrese (Roman) is using the bathroom in the club after drinking….a dude comes from behind Tyrese and puts a plastic bag over his head…Tyrese slams the dude in the mirror in the bathroom…the dude who tries to kill Tyrese lays on the floor…reach into his pocket and uses his cell…and tells Tyrese is leaving the club…another set of people shows up and shoots Tyrese as he leaves the entrance of the club…. Brian told him to wait there…bc he left the club earlier for whatever reason…Now that would be a good plot….Brian already guess that Bradga people had something to do with it…The Bradga people wonders how Brian nows Tyrese…and this starts how Brian is made out to be a cop…compromising his position and causes a big man hunt for him…by Bradga people…Dominic is undetected…and Brian is force to flee…Dominic is ordered to go and kill Brian…Dominic points the gun at Brian….
