Thai action star enters Hollywood

Los Angeles, Aug 25 : Thai martial artist Tony Jaa has joined the cast of "Fast And Furious 7", marking his debut in Hollywood. This is also his first English language movie.

"I have been a big fan of the 'Fast And Furious' franchise. The films are fast-paced, fun and keep the audience involved," the actor told hollywoodreporter.com.

"There is a great mix of humour and action, something I really appreciate. There is no better film to be involved in for a first US studio production," he added.

Director James Wan, who made "The Conjuring", has cast Jaa in a role that remains unknown.

Meanwhile, Jaa, best known for starring in "Ong-Bak" series, is delighted to team up with Vin Diesel and wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson in "Fast And Furious 7".

"Having a chance to work with Vin Diesel and The Rock (Johnson) already makes me a winner," he said.
