Tyrese Gibson is racing back to action movie franchise FAST + THE FURIOUS after hearing his former co-star, Paul Walker, urge him to sign up for the fourth film in an online video chat.
Walker told website HollyScoop.com he wanted Gibson to join himself and Vin Diesel in Fast of the Furious 4 - and the Transformers star admits he was so touched he contacted producers and offered his services.
He says, "It's official, my man Paul Walker got on Hollyscoop.com and said we're really fighting to get Tyrese back.
"Paul Walker and all the fans of Hollyscoop.com, put that energy in the universe; you guys aired it, and now I'm in it."
Gibson will join Diesel, Walker, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez in the new movie, which is scheduled to hit U.S. cinemas next summer (09).
