Vin Diesel, main star of the popular “Fast and Furious” franchise, has revealed that he wants Robert Downey Jr. Be a part of the upcoming film series. Diesel, who plays protagonist Dom Toretto, shared his thoughts on who he would like to see in his next film while speaking with him Variation in the premiere of the “Fast X” trailer.
When asked about his dream casting, he gave the name Robert Downey Jr. without a doubt. Diesel described the character he wanted RDJ to play as “the antithesis of Dom” and someone who promoted AI and driverless cars, which was in direct conflict with Toretto’s philosophy.
However, when pressed whether he had applied for the role to RDJ, Diesel declined to comment.
Diesel co-star Michelle Rodriguez also shared her thoughts on the red carpet on who she would like to see in the final “Fast and Furious” film. He said he wanted to see Matt Damon, star of the “Jason Bourne” films, in the film. Rodriguez pointed out that the “Fast and Furious” franchise already has four Oscar winners and Damon is also an Oscar winner, so it would be great to see him in the movie.
The upcoming film “Fast X,” which will hit the silver screens in May, has a star-studded cast, with a mix of top Hollywood acts and popular musicians.
The 10th installment of the long-running franchise stars Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Jordana Brewster, Brie Larson, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Scott Eastwood, Michael Rooker, Daniela Melchior, Alan Ritchson, and Cardi B. With the addition of Robert Downey Jr. or Matt Damon, the film is likely to be a blockbuster hit.
Vin Diesel’s desire to bring Robert Downey Jr. in the film “Fast and Furious” then becomes exciting news for fans of the franchise. The idea of RDJ playing a character who is the antithesis of Dom Toretto adds a new dimension to the franchise, and it will be interesting to see how his character fits into the “Fast and Furious” world.
