Now that Vin Diesel is done filming for his 2017 film "Fast 8," he is focused on reprising his role as Xander Cage for the action-packed movie "xXx: Return of Xander Cage," which is also slated for a 2017 release.

However, in between takes, the 49-year-old likes spending time with his co-actors, taking selfies with them and sharing the snaps on his Instagram account.

On Friday, Diesel shared another snap with one of his co-stars, and this time it is with no other than former EXO member Kris Wu.

"xXx gives new meaning to what a Global cast can be," Diesel captioned the selfie he took with the 25-year-old Chinese-Canadian actor-singer, who plays the character of Harvard in the film. Diesel also put "lil bro" at the end of the caption and tagged Wu in the post.

It appears that Diesel and Wu have gotten close, since the former calls the latter "lil bro," while the latter calls the former "big bro" as proven by the post Wu shared back in February in which he referred to Diesel as his big brother.

Meanwhile, Wu is the latest co-star Diesel took a snap with to tease fans of the franchise's upcoming sequel.

On Tuesday, Diesel uploaded a photo with another co-star, "Orange is the New Black" actress Ruby Rose, who portrays Adele Wolff in the new "xXx" movie.
