So it is not known what exactly prompted VIN Diesel – the producers of the film “fast and furious 8” or it was his personal initiative, but the actor and co-producer praised his colleague Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson for what he brilliantly coped with their role.
49-year-old Diesel has thanked fans for their support. A former wrestler, and now a successful actor, he never forgot who he was
“When I think about how lucky I am, how I am blessed, I do not forget about the fact that you did this to me. Without you I would not be able to make “fast and furious 8”. The reason we engaged in the project of Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson – also you all. One person told me: “I’d like to see you on screen together, guys.” Thus, we gave the role, originally written for Tommy Lee Jones to Dwayne and he played it,” said VIN Diesel.
Recall that the end of filming “fast & Furious 8” was marked by scandal. Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson wrote a angry pot on Facebook, calling some of his colleagues on the set of “jerks” and “nonprofessionals”. Later it turned out that he was referring to VIN Diesel. Latest “caught a star” and allowed himself to be late for the shooting for a few hours. As long as he stayed in the dressing room and forced everyone to wait. Dwayne is not accustomed to this mode and this attitude, that got my dander up.
