The WWE star, John Cena, is the biggest newcomer of the film. He will be playing the role of Jakob Toretto, who is Dom’s and Mia’s badass brother. He plays the character of an assassin, master thief, and a high-performance driver.

Besides, Guardians of the Galaxy star, Michael Rooker will be playing the role of a character named Buddy.
Sung Kang might reprise his role as Han, who was killed back in Fast & Furious 6. We don’t know for sure whether Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham from spin-off movie Hobbs & Shaw will be a part of this film. But if they do appear, then they will most likely be seen playing cameo roles.
Makers haven’t given any confirmation about the potential return of Brian O’Conner, which was played by Paul Walker. Even fans are hoping that after the beautiful send-off in the seventh installment, the character doesn’t return. But we don’t know, anything can happen in this new film.
