The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift star Lucas Black has been set to return as Sean Boswell in Fast & Furious 7.

The actor has signed a deal that will make him a regular player in the popular action franchise, with roles in the next three movies starting with Fast & Furious 7. He joins a cast that includes franchise mainstays Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, along with new additions Jason Statham, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel and Djimon Hounsou.
