Jason Momoa is the latest actor to join the Fast family.

On Friday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the Aquaman star was in talks to join the upcoming 10th instalment of the franchise as one of the villains.

Later in the day, the 42-year-old was welcomed to the family via the film's official Twitter account with a photo captioned: The Fast Fam keeps getting bigger. Welcome, Jason Momoa. #F10


Directed by Justin Lin, the ensemble cast Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Sung Kang and Charlize Theron are all expected to reprise their roles.

Last year Vin made a public plea to Dwayne Johnson to reprise his roles as Luke Hobbs. The pair have had a longstanding feud since the filming of The Fate of the Furious.

The Baywatch actor reiterated that he would not return and accused Vin of "manipulation."
