One of the biggest franchises in the past decade or two is The Fast and the Furious as it has everything from great action, to HOTT stars, and fast cars.
Well now we've got another star to add to the list as Fast & Furious' Twitter announced that Scott Eastwood has officially joined Fast 8 as the film tweeted:
We bet she's not upset about Steve Harvey's Miss Universe mix up anymore!
We certainly thought Miss Colombia's 15 minutes of fame would have expired by now, but it looks like Ariadna Gutierrez is here to stay.
And apparently, she's about to become a bona fide movie star!
It's been reported that the beauty queen will play Vin Diesel's love interest in xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage!
According to TMZ, Gutierrez's first movie role is quite the meaty one — production sources say that the 22-year-old will be in 6 scenes and has 3 pages of dialogue.
The former pageant contestant is reportedly off to the Dominican Republic on Tuesday to begin shooting.
Wow — these are certainly some inneresting casting choices! How do YOU think the beauty queen will do playing opposite Diesel on the big screen?

Well, it didn't take long for the two to form a close bond.
Along with a sweet snap of them on set (below), she posted:
This would really rev up the Fast and the Furious franchise!
Furious 7 was one of the most successful movies of 2015 so it comes as no surprise that the sequel Furious 8 is looking to kick things up a notch by adding another A-lister.
While the high speed movies have already had MASSIVE stars attached like Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jason Statham, we're happy to hear more major talent could be joining the crew!
Deadline reports that director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and screenwriter Chris Morgan are looking for
The Fast and the Furious movies have been so successful that we're of course getting an eighth installment.
While Vin Diesel recently took to Instagram to share the title and poster for the speedy sequel (above), what many fans have been wondering is if Paul Walker's brothers, Cody Walker and/or Caleb Walker, might return in the sequel.
While several fans loved the ending of the seventh film, moviegoers have been speculating lately that Paul's brothers could return to give their late brother's character some more screen time — or even as brand new characters.
Well, Polygon reached out to Universal Pictures and got word on the brothers' involvement as a rep for the studio said:
Vin Diesel has played many badass characters over the years — but his most enthusiastic role might just be that time he was a salesman for Street Sharks!
Before he was the Iron Giant, Dom Toretto, or Groot, the actor spent his time in the mid '90s promoting the new line of Street Sharks toys!
And because the internet is our friend, a clip JUST surfaced that shows the Furious 7 star selling the merchandise at a 1994 toy fair!
In case you're not familiar, these half man/half shark crime fighting hybrids had a short lived animated series from 1994-1997 — and were basically total Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knockoffs!
In the clip, the soon-to-be actor showcases the new products — and his sound effects make the relatively lame toys look like must haves!
Srsly, Diesel's conviction made the fishy characters so badass that we're pretty sure his pitch alone is responsible for the short-lived Street Sharks craze!
Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to see what we mean!
Aaaaaaand we've got a title!
The actor posted a simple pic with no comment on the social network, but he revealed all we need to know about what's up with the next installment in the action series (below)!!!
