Someone is trying to get all lovey-dovey with Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto, from the “Fast & Furious” franchise.
The franchise has blown up from when it first hit theaters in 2001. Along the way, the cars got more flashy and the cast welcomed some pretty amazing stars to the cast. Some really amazing stars like Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Charlize Theron, and Jason Statham have joined the franchise.
Helen Mirren Wants to Kiss Vin Diesel
One of the most surprising faces to pop up was Helen Mirren. It’s surprising seeing as she’s known for very high-end dramas and Shakespearan productions, not necessarily blockbuster action movies. She’s been acting since the 1960s.
She had an uncredited appearance in “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017 as Magdalene “Queenie” Shaw. Now, she wants to get people’s attention in the upcoming “F10” movie. Queenie and Dom might just be the new “Fast & Furious” ship.
During an interview with The New York Times, Mirren said she would be very open to the idea of giving Vin Diesel a kiss in a scene. She said, “A very chaste kiss [would have been] nice, yes.” It’s not necessarily the “Fast & Furious” pairing we imagined, but it’s pretty epic nonetheless.
She wants a chaste kiss but proceeded to gush over how amazing Vin Diesel is. It was pretty Shakespearean in its own right.
“Vin has the most unbelievable voice. I go a bit gooey when I hear it. That velvety brown rumble in your ear is so fabulous to experience for a whole day or two. It is like hearing the most incredibly well-oiled engine. Oh my God, of course, I would. Only if he talks to me before and after because it’s the voice that I really get off on, quite honestly,” Mirren said. Now, that seems like the honest answer.
Old ‘Fast & Furious’ Star
Dwayne Johnson, who played Luke Hobbs in four different “Fast & Furious” movies. He also appeared in the spin-off series “Hobbs & Shaw” in 2019 with Jason Statham.
In November, Vin Diesel posted on Instagram calling out Johnson. He was hoping that he would return for the final installment of the action movie. Johnson was surprised by the post, seeing as he already discussed his future with the franchise with Diesel.
“This past June, when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him directly — and privately — that I would not be returning to the franchise. I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return,” Johnson told CNN.
He called Vin’s post “an example of his manipulation.” Clearly, the two still aren’t on good terms.
