John Cena is officially part of the Fast and the Furious cast.

It was confirmed today that Cena has joined the cast for "Fast & Furious 9." The character that he's playing has yet to be revealed, but Deadline reported that the word coming to them is that Cena plays "a badass.”

Deadline also noted that they've heard Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson won't be in "Fast & Furious 9."

Cena tweeted about joining the cast: "For nearly 20 years, the Fast Franchise has entertained fans and created some of the biggest cinematic moments in history. It’s an incredible honor to join this franchise and this family."

Cena being part of "Fast & Furious 9" was first teased in an Instagram video that Vin Diesel posted in April. The movie is being directed by Justin Lin and is scheduled to be released on May 22, 2020.

Production for the movie will begin later this month.

At WrestleMania 35, Cena appeared as his old "Doctor of Thuganomics" character and took part in a segment with Elias.
