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


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.
