Imagine The Fast and The Furious with Timothy Olyphant?
March 29th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Drew Barrymore, Vin Diesel. [ Comments: 1 ]

Did you know that Vin Diesel was not the original choice for Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious? Originally, they wanted Timothy Olyphant to play the lead role, but he turned it down.

Yesterday, when he was on Watch What Happens Live, a caller wanted to know if he regretted turning down the part. But first Andy Cohen wanted to know why he decided not to do the movie. The actor said, “I just thought well this will just be stupid.” Then he added, “And I thought that no one is going to want to see this movie eight or nine different times. I mean by the third or fourth sequel people are definitely going to get bored of it.” As we know, he was wrong because they have released eight movies with a spinoff and ninth movie in the works. Hey, we all make mistakes, just some make much costlier mistake.

Talking about turning down roles, did you know Drew Barrymore, Olyphant’s Santa Clarita costar, turned down Showgirls. Although she claims it was a mutual decision between her and the director Paul Verhoeven. That turned out to be a smart decision on her part.

The best part of them turning down those movies, is we get to watch them Santa Clarita Diet that starts streaming its second season tonight on Netflix.


Watch Vin Diesel get rejected three times during awkward interview
December 23rd, 2016 under Vin Diesel. [ Comments: none ]

Vin Diesel was being interviewed by Carol Moreira in Sao Paulo about his movie XXX, and their chat get very XXX. Well at least for him it did because he declared his love for her not once, not twice, but three times. She on the other hand very politely tried to turn him down by trying to continue the interview. He didn’t get the hint, and now you have to wonder if his baby mama will too?


Is Vin Diesel threatening to bad mouth The Rock?
August 11th, 2016 under The Rock, Vin Diesel. [ Comments: none ]

A video posted by Vin Diesel (@vindiesel) on

The other night, The Rock wrote an Instagram post basically saying that one of his male co-stars on Fast and Furious 8 was a candy a$$ for being unprofessional on the set. But he did not say who it was. Within hours several sources started saying that it was Vin Diesel, but the two actors didn’t confirm or deny it.
That all changed last night, when Diesel posted an Instagram video saying, “So give me a second and I will tell you everything. Everything!” Is that his way of confirming it was him who pissed off The Rock?
If so, he would be making a huge mistake. DJ is one of the most loved actors in Hollywood and the Highest Paid one for good reason. He works like a dog and never complains. He wakes up early to work out, play with his dog, change his daughter’s diapers, star and produce in movies and television shows and produce ones he is not even in. If that is not enough, he always makes time for his fans and even visits them in the hospital without fan fare. How can you not choose his side?
I have remained silent on this because I knew whatever happened had to be really bad to piss of Dwayne Johnson that much. No one messes with him! DJ and I bleed burnt orange, Biscayne green and white, and no one hurts the University of Miami family.
Vin needs to take the high road because he is in a losing battle, no matter how many Facebook followers he has.
As you can tell I am #TeamRock, whose team are you on?


Does The Return of Xander Cage hit the xXx spot for you?
July 19th, 2016 under Vin Diesel. [ Comments: none ]

The first trailer is out for the xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, the much anticipated sequel that has been almost 15 years in the making. To me the Vin Diesel movie looks like a Dick Flick squared, so it is not for me. But will you be rushing out to see it on January 20th?


BTWF roles: Vin Diesel in The Awakenings
June 14th, 2016 under Before They Were Famous, Vin Diesel. [ Comments: none ]

Before Vin Diesel had some crazy roles like the ones Boiler Room and Fast and the Furious, he was working as an orderly in an insane asylum in The Awakenings. How weird is it to see him with hair back when he was 22 in that 1990 movie?
