Roman Reigns to appear alongside The Rock in "Hobbs & Shaw"

Roman Reigns to make movie debut alongside The Rock: WWE Now

The Rock revealed his costar in "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" will be his cousin Roman Reigns, the new Instagram account you need to follow.

The Rock’s “Fast and Furious” family is growing by one, and an actual family member is getting in on the action.

Rock announced that none other than Roman Reigns will appear in “Hobbs & Shaw,” a spinoff of the “Fast and Furious” franchise focused on the exploits of The Great One’s government agent Luke Hobbs — a role he originated in 2011’s “Fast Five” — and the criminal Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham since 2013’s “Fast & Furious 6.” 

The former WWE Champion announced his cousin’s participation via Instagram, which revealed that Reigns will be playing Hobbs' brother and also included the first photo of the two Anoa’i scions in the film. He continued to update the account over the weekend with another image from the set, which Reigns also posted on his new Instagram.

The brothers’ roar. A lil’ HOBBS & SHAW exclusive. Good times droppin’ sweat and spillin’ blood with my family, @RomanReigns who’ll be playing my brother in our FAST & FURIOUS UNIVERSE. I’m very proud of his focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film. I’m also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia. His perseverance and humility battling this challenge has inspired our entire family as well as millions around the world in our beloved @WWE Universe. Can’t wait to see the “Big Dog” return back to the ring - his positive & focused mindset to return is straight up next level. Til’ then, this sacred Samoan 🇼🇸 ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood. Today, we nourish it with yours. #WelcomeRomanReigns #Brothers #HobbsAndShaw THIS SUMMER 🔥💪🏾 @hhgarcia41 📸

A lil’ HOBBS & SHAW exclusive. THE HOBBS BROTHERS. In Samoa 🇼🇸 we have a word that means everything to us - AIGA - which means FAMILY. My name is Luke Hobbs and these are my four brothers. My family. My aiga. They all live in Samoa where they own and operate “Hobbs Customs” - a former illegal chop shop, now a legit business where they build and deliver vintage custom cars all over the world. In Samoa we have another saying which is “Ou te le tau to’atasi ae matou te tau fa’atasi” which means, When you fight one, you fight us ALL. Biggest showdown the Fast & Furious Universe has ever seen is coming this summer. HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND #JoshMauga #CliffCurtis #RomanReigns #JohnTui #BigBrownBaldTattooedMan @hhgarcia41 📸
