Martial-arts star Tony Jaa (“Ong Bak”) is joining the (already star-packed) cast of “Fast & Furious 7″.

Jaa joins a cast that already features such heavyweights (some literal heavyweights) as Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Ronda Rousey.

“I have been a big fan of the Fast and Furious franchise,” Jaa tells The Hollywood Reporter via e-mail from Thailand. “The films are fast-paced, fun and keep the audience involved. There is a great mix of humor and action, something I really appreciate. There is no better film to be involved in for a first U.S. studio production.”

Asked whether or not he’ll be thrashing Vin or Dwayne in the film, Jaa responded “Having a chance to work with Vin Diesel and The Rock already makes me a winner.”

No word on which character Jaa, who makes his English-language debut in the James Wan directed film, plays.
