Norwegian actor Kristofer Hivju, best known for his role as Tormund Giantsbane on HBO's "Game of Thrones," has joined the eighth installment of Universal's blockbuster "Fast and the Furious" franchise.
Vin Diesel will of course head up the cast, joined by franchise veterans Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez and Jason Statham. "Straight Outta Compton" director F. Gary Gray will be behind the camera.
Hivju's film credits include "After Earth" and the remake of "The Thing," but he also may be recognized as the Wyndham Rewards Wyzard from the television commercials.
"Fast 8" arrives in theaters April 17, 2017.
