'Fast and Furious 7' Wants Kurt Russell, 'Dumb and Dumber To' Casts Kathleen Turner


'Fast and Furious 7' Wants Kurt Russell, 'Dumb and Dumber To' Casts Kathleen Turner
The 'Big Trouble in Little China' actor enters talks to star opposite Vin Diesel, while the 'Virgin Suicides' actress joins Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.


Two casting reports have stormed the web, and both of them come from Variety. First off, after successfully securing new faces, including UFC Champion Ronda Rousey and most recently Thai actor Tony Jaa, for "Fast and Furious 7", Universal now wants a veteran action star to be the next addition to the cast ensemble.

Kurt Russell, best known for his heroic role in "Big Trouble in Little China", is currently in negotiations to take on a supporting role that, according to sources, was intended to be tackled by Denzel Washington. There is no further detail on what kind of character Russell is expected to play in the James Wan-directed movie.

In another report, Red Granite Pictures and Universal have cast Kathleen Turner as a new character in "Dumb and Dumber To". While the role she has landed is unknown, the Oscar-nominated actress, who starred opposite Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston in "Marley & Me", will join forces with the same team that worked on the 1994 comedy.

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will be featured again as two good-hearted but incredibly stupid friends. Set to return as directors are Bobby and Peter Farrelly.

Both movies are scheduled to be released in 2014.
