Leo Abelo Perry is set to star in Fast X as Vin Diesel’s son.

The ten-year-old excitedly posted the news on Instagram, and yes, it’s official, he is a Toretto!


“Does this mean I can drive now? Loved every second of this unbelievable opportunity. So grateful for the many memories made with the cast and crew. #morethankstocome,” Leo shared on Instagram, along with the news. “I cannot believe I get to say I’m a Toretto. Thank you @vindiesel.”

If Leo’s face looks familiar, then it should. He was one of Gabrielle Union’s brood in the reboot of Cheaper by the Dozen. This Disney hit, marked Leo’s film debut. 

However, most recently, Leo portrayed “Chip” in the ABC live special broadcast of Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration. The talented young actor shared the screen with A-list celebrity and Hollywood legends such as H.E.R., Josh Groban, Shania Twain, Martin Short and Rita Moreno. Moreno will also portray Leo’s great-grandmother in Fast X.

According to Variety, in his spare time, Leo is extremely passionate about social justice, and created his own movement, Dance for Justice, in 2020 to raise awareness about racial inequality. Dance for Justice raised funds for Black Lives Matter and educational programs for children in the arts, music and sports. Perry recently launched his own activism podcast, “The Activators,” and also spearheads the organization Justice Kids for Peace.

Fast X is set to hit theaters on May 19, 2023. The final episode in this fast-paced amazing series will be directed by Louis Leterrier, replacing Justin Lin. The film will fall under the Universal umbrella and will also star Jason Momoa, Brie Larson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Scott Eastwood, Michael Rooker, Daniela Melchior, Alan Ritchson, Helen Mirren and Cardi B.

Congratulations, Leo! We cannot wait to see you on the big screen once again in what is truly a long-awaited finale to one of the most watched franchises in history.
