Universal Pictures invited me out to Rio de Janeiro this week to hang with the cast and crew of Fast Five. After giving it some serious thought, I replied, “HELL YES!” All of your favorite drivers will be there, including Vin Diesel Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, and Jordana Brewster (you know, for the fellas). There will also be sun, sand, and unbelievably hot Brazilian women strolling the beach wearing bathing suits of limited fabric. I hope my pasty white movie blogger skin doesn’t frighten them away.
If you have questions for any of the stars of the film, or director Justin Lin, please leave them in the comment section. I’ll be interviewing Tyrese, Ludacris, Matt Schulze, Gal Gadot, Elsa Pataky, and Sung Kang as well. Since this film is packed to the brim with masculinity, maybe you have some “man” questions you’d like to get answered. Like, how does a real man get his steak cooked, or what’s the best scotch to drink while contemplating your awesomeness?
You’ll also be able to watch a streaming live broadcast of the world premiere of the film on Friday night. More info on that coming later. But for now, I gotta catch a flight to Brazil, and brush up on my Portuguese. Tchau.
That’s “bye,” right?
