‘Fast & Furious 8’ News: Justin Bieber Stops Ruby Rose from Being Cast?

Not only is she the hottest new addition to Season 3 of Netflix' hit jail driven drama, Orange Is the New Black, Ruby Rose, claims that had it not been for Justin Bieber, she might have been the hottest new Fast and Furious 7 cast member as well. According to the latest gossip news updates, the 29-year-old actress/model was ultimately passed over when one of the movie's leads remarked that she looked a dead ringer for the Canadian popstar's doppelganger. Rose reportedly told the Today show that Universal has since realized their mistake, however, and has asked her to consider taking another "sexy" new part in Fast 8. Word has it that following the success of Vin Diesel's last Fast film, that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson may get his own very spin-off chronicling the exploits of his hard-hitting character, Agent Luke Hobbs.

While she did not go so far as to mention just who wound up getting cast in her stead, Orange Is the New Black's breakout star, Ruby Rose, recently told the Today show that was rudely overlooked after one of the franchise main stars suggested out loud that she looked like male singer/songwriter, Justin Bieber (via Inquisitr):

"My last audition before Orange was for Fast And Furious 7...But they didn't want me because one of the main guys said I looked like Justin Bieber!

"It's so funny because now I'm in talks with that movie and I haven't mentioned to them that I know [they turned my down because I looked like Justin]."

In stark contrast to the gender fluid actress, the WWE's Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently admitted to ScreenRant that he had been in talks to possibly get his own Fast and Furious franchise spin-off:

"We all are interested in it. I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we'll see.

"I still think for me personally we've created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want.

"That's my take on it, you know, but a lot of other people have to have input."

With Eva Mendes and Helen Mirren reportedly set to also join the Fast and Furious 8 cast, it looks like the new movie is all set to have more sex appeal than it's billion dollar predecessor if nothing else.
