Bad Boys 4 Cast Update Confirms Another Major Character Return

Another significant character from Bad Boys 4 will return as filming proceeds, according to the newest casting update.  

Bad Boys 4 will have another significant character return after numerous franchise stars were confirmed.  

Under Michael Bay, the action-comedy franchise returned with the best reviews and greatest box office gross with its 2020 threequel.  

In Bad Boys 4, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence headline the cast, including Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Paola Núñez, John Salley, DJ Khaled, and newcomers Tasha Smith, Ioan Gruffudd, Eric Dane, and Rhea See  

Variety reports that Jacob Scipio will return for Bad Boys 4 as filming continues. In 2020's Bad Boys For Life, the British actor played Mike's son Armando Aretas, a villain-turned-tragic.  

After the threequel's mid-credits scene set up a big arc, his return was announced.Scipio's franchise return seemed inevitable with Mike's invitation to Armando to use his powers for good in Bad Boys for Life's closing, but the confirmation bodes well for the next film's story.   

The threequel's popularity was due to Smith's playboy character's maturation after facing his former demon, Kate del Castillo's Isabel.   

Mike's progress was evident when he let go of his fury to tell Armando the truth. Armando's continual involvement in Bad Boys 4's plot is crucial to its leads' progression toward maturity and complexity.   

While he may want to move on from his criminal past, it would be intriguing to see how he adjusts to a normal life with his loose-cannon father and the mild-mannered Marcus.   

Seeing how Armando's larger presence in Mike's life affects others, notably his complicated relationship with Rita, his ex and now Miami Police Captain, will be intriguing.  

Mike's past with Armando will be a problem for the couple as recent set photographs show that he will marry franchise newcomer and Alan Wake 2 star Melanie Liburd during Bad Boys 4's runtime.  

For Life writer Chris Bremner and director Adil & Bilall are back for the fourquel, so Scipio's return should give Armando and Mike the same powerful character growth.
