New to the franchise is John Cena, who will be playing Dom Torretto's (Vin Diesel's) bad brother. Newsweek reports "Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson - Luke Hobbs will be missing his first Fast & Furious film since he was introduced in Fast Five. His absence comes amid rumors of a feud between Johnson and Diesel."
In F9, Cena will play the middle child of the Toretto family, younger than Dom but older than Mia (Jordana Brewster). In a typical case of sibling rivalry, he has trained his whole life to beat his brother, which has led to him becoming an expert marksman, fighter, assassin and thief. In the movie, he is working for the villain of The Fate of the Furious, Cipher (Charlize Theron). [Newsweek]
