The Fast and the Furious movies have been so successful that we're of course getting an eighth installment.

While Vin Diesel recently took to Instagram to share the title and poster for the speedy sequel (above), what many fans have been wondering is if Paul Walker's brothers, Cody Walker and/or Caleb Walker, might return in the sequel.

If you remember, Cody and Caleb were both stand-ins for Furious 7 so the film could digitally recreate the late actor and finish the story.

While several fans loved the ending of the seventh film, moviegoers have been speculating lately that Paul's brothers could return to give their late brother's character some more screen time — or even as brand new characters.

Vin Diesel has played many badass characters over the years — but his most enthusiastic role might just be that time he was a salesman for Street Sharks!

Before he was the Iron Giant, Dom Toretto, or Groot, the actor spent his time in the mid '90s promoting the new line of Street Sharks toys!

And because the internet is our friend, a clip JUST surfaced that shows the Furious 7 star selling the merchandise at a 1994 toy fair!

In case you're not familiar, these half man/half shark crime fighting hybrids had a short lived animated series from 1994-1997 — and were basically total Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knockoffs!

In the clip, the soon-to-be actor showcases the new products — and his sound effects make the relatively lame toys look like must haves!

Srsly, Diesel's conviction made the fishy characters so badass that we're pretty sure his pitch alone is responsible for the short-lived Street Sharks craze!

Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to see what we mean!

Lucy Hale Can't Get A Word In Edgewise When Pretty Little Liars Wins The People’s Choice Awards 2016 For Best Cable TV Drama!

| Filed under: Vin DieselPeople's Choice AwardsLucy HalePretty Little Liars

The secret is out!

There are plenty of AH-Mazing dramas on television these days, but the lucky series to take home the People's Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Drama was Pretty Little Liars!

The whole cast came out to collect the award — including our fave liars Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, and Shay Mitchell!

Things were a bit rushed when the girls got to the stage, and a nervous Troian was so focused on thanking the fans in her speech that she completely forgot to let any of her costars talk!

The rushed moment could have been because Vin Diesel's long-winded speech put the show behind schedule — but it's more likely because A found a way to sabotage their victory!

Either way, we are so happy for this pretty talented cast! Watch the speech (above) to see hear the shoutout to ABC Family's new name, Freeform!
