Orange is the new Black's Ruby Rose will be one of the women to be added in the "Fast and Furious 8" and she will play a sexy role this time. Other female actresses to complete the cast are Eva Mendez and Ronda Rousey who will actually recur in the action sequel.


Ruby Rose auditioned for "Fast and Furious 8" and she was given by Universal Pictures a sexy role though no additional details about this have been divulged. Inquistr says Rose actually auditioned for "Fast and Furious 7" but was turned down because she was said to look like Justin Bieber.

Ruby Rose was quoted by Classicalite as saying that Universal has realized their mistake and asked her to consider the said role for the latest instalment.


Meanwhile, aside from Ruby Rose, other female stars who will join "Fast and Furious 8" are Eva Mendez and UFC champion Ronda Rousey. According to Parent Herald, Mendez, who starred as Agent Monica Fuentes in "Fast and Furious 6", will reprise her role in the new movie. It is reported that she could get close to Dominic, played by Vin Diesel, which would mean a love triangle may occur between them and mechanic Letty portrayed by Michelle Rodriguez. It was actually Rodriguez' idea that more female be added in the sequel. Rousey meanwhile earlier suggested that fellow UFC champ Joanna  Jedrzejczyk should be included as well, as her enemy. The former describes Joanna as a tiny and skinny ninja.

Vin Diesel also suggests Helen Mirren to play the role of the main villain. Mirren has expressed her dream of being part of the movie as a mad driver.

With the addition of more female cast, "Fast and Furious 8" will surely attract more female viewership.
