Scott Eastwood Returning In Fast & Furious Franchise Role
Scott Eastwood is returning to The Fast Saga, reprising his role as Eric Reisner a.k.a. Little Nobody in Fast & Furious 10. Also known as Fast X, the tenth film in the main franchise is currently in production after a brief but significant snafu regarding its filmmaker. Director Justin Lin, who returned to the franchise in Fast & Furious 9, was meant to wrap up The Fast Saga but exited Fast 10 and has since been replaced by Louis Leterrier.
The car-centric franchise has come a long way since its street-racing days in the 2000s. Now, it’s a full-blown action-adventure saga known for its crazy stunts and over-the-top storylines. The Fast Saga is one of the most popular franchises right now, so it’s no wonder that there’s immense pressure to deliver a satisfying ending. Aside from its core cast, Fast 10 has also brought in A-listers Jason Momoa and Brie Larson to board the project. Its latest ensemble addition, however, is a familiar face.

According to a new report from THR, Eastwood is set to reprise his role as Little Nobody in Fast 10. No additional context has been given regarding how involved he will be in the movie’s story. Reisner’s boss, Mr. Nobody, however, has yet to be confirmed for the upcoming blockbuster as there’s still no word if Kurt Russell will be joining the upcoming Universal blockbuster.
Following his introduction in Fate of the Furious, Little Nobody didn’t appear in Fast & Furious 9 despite Mr. Nobody’s cameo. In the 2021 Lin-directed film, Russell’s shady manipulator was revealed to be the person who saved Han (Sung Kang) from Deckard Shaw’s (Jason Statham) attempted murder in Tokyo. Mr. Nobody was also the one who advised him to stay hidden until he re-emerged several years later. Given the nature of Mr. Nobody’s cameo in Fast & Furious 9, it made sense that Little Nobody didn’t appear with him despite being the older gentleman’s right-hand man. Whether or not Mr. Nobody appears in Fast 10, the fact that Little Nobody will be in it is an indication that he will be involved in the narrative.
With Little Nobody’s impending return to The Fast Saga, it’s curious if there are any other familiar characters that fans haven’t seen in a while who will be appearing in Fast & Furious 10. Ever since Han’s surprise resurrection, there have been theories that other supposedly dead players in the franchise can come back, particularly Gal Gadot’s Giselle. There has been no concrete word about this thus far, but as fun as seeing all these characters in the new blockbuster will be, it also risks making the film overstuffed and convoluted.
