Luke Evans has reportedly been offered a role in The Fast And The Furious 6.

The Raven star - who is currently shooting The Hobbit - is tipped to play a villain in the latest instalment of the action-packed franchise, reports Twitchfilm.

Jason Statham was previously linked to the role but apparently turned it down.

Welsh actor Luke is expected to join Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Jordana Brewster, who are thought to be reprising their roles from the previous movies. Mixed martial arts fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano has also been added to the cast.

There had been rumours that Rihanna was considering a role in the street-racing movie but a spokesperson for the singer told MTV News: "As far as I'm aware this is not true."
