“Blood Diamond” star Djimon Hounsou is strapping on a seat-belt, and hanging onto the door handle, as he’s initiated into the “Fast & Furious” franchise this week.

The actor, says Deadline, is the latest addition to director James Wan’s “Fast & Furious 7″, which has just commenced filming in Los Angeles.

Hounsou is one of a few big-name additions to the movie, with Kurt Russell and Jason Statham also recently signing.

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson reprise their roles from the previous films.
