Kristofer Hivju to play a henchman in Fast & Furious 8

Norwegian actor Kristofer Hivju is set to play an imposing henchman in the new Fast and Furious film. Nothing is known about his character beyond the fact that he’ll be one of the people causing trouble for Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto and the gang, but the film has been kept a secret.

Kristofer Hivju is also set to appear in the new season of Game of Thrones, which premieres within coming weeks.


Could this have something to do with the fact that the film was partially shot in Iceland, perhaps? Nordic henchmen, anyone?
