Nicky Jam Talks Linking Up With Vin Diesel for 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage'

The reggaeton singer never thought he'd be cast in one of this year's biggest blockbusters

Nicky Jam will be the first to admit that memorizing lines isn't his strong suit, but the reggaeton star snagged the role of Lazarus in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, the third installment of the blockbuster franchise.

"Vin [Diesel] was looking for somebody in the Hispanic community that has a lot of followers and that a lot of people love, and I guess I was the guy," Jam tells Fuse.

Describing his fellow cast members as "sexy and nice and with guns," Jam gave a shoutout to Chinese-Canadian singer/actor Kris Wu, who he said was a genius. "To have this career in acting, you have to be really intelligent."
