You Won't BELIEVE Who Nearly Had Vin Diesel's Role In The Fast & The Furious! (And Other Movies That Almost Had Very Different Stars!)

Filed under: Vin DieselGIFsPaul WalkerNostalgia

It's hard to imagine anyone other than Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious.

But the street racer-turned-international secret agent (man, this franchise cray!) was almost played by someone very different — Justified star Timothy Olyphant!

Speaking on The Bill Simmons Podcast on Wednesday, producer Neil H. Moritz said after finding Paul Walker there was only one piece of the puzzle needed to make the project a go:

"And then we had to look for Dom Toretto. The studio said, 'If you can get Timothy Olyphant to play that role we will greenlight the movie… The luckiest thing that ever happened to us is Tim Olyphant turned us down. He's a great actor. In fact, I'm curious to see what that movie would have been."

Wow. So are we! (We're thinking the studio was happy with his performance as a cop in the previous year's fast car flick Gone In Sixty Seconds!)

But of course, Neil then found Vin, who was perfect for the bad boy boss from the get:

"I went and met him at Kate Mantilini and he wasn't a star yet, but the great thing about Vin is he always believed he was a star. And I was going in there to think he's coming to me to want the role and I'm the one there now having to convince him to do the role! Lucky for both of us that happened."

Lucky for us too, eight movies later! But Furious wasn't the only classic that almost had a completely different cast!

Vin Diesel Seriously Downplays That Alleged Feud With Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson!

Vin Diesel and The Rock

OK…

Back in August, it was pretty clear the mood between Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was extremely tense — but now, the 49-year-old executive producer is saying things are just fine.

In case you need a refresher, the 44-year-old former wrestler drew quite a bit of attention last year when he took to Instagram to SLAM one of his Fast 8 costars (AKA Diesel) for being a "chicken shit" and a "candy ass." Welp.

In a new interview with USA Today, The Pacifier actor addressed the controversy by totally sweeping it under the rug.

Charlize Theron Goes Ultra Glam While Vin Diesel Phones It In For The Fate Of The Furious!

Charlize and Vin hit the red carpet!

The odd couple! LOLz!

Charlize Theron glammed it up for The Fate of the Furious premiere in Germany Tuesday, looking exquisite in a strapless white flare dress with strappy black and snakeskin heels. Elegant, classy, FABOOSH!

Sadly, Vin Diesel didn't get the glam-it-up memo because he showed up in black slacks and a regular old graphic tee that said "Brotherhood" across the top. Nice muscles, btw!

Now, we know men don't always get as dolled up as the women, but a lot of them will put on a nice, sharp-looking suit. It's a premiere, after all! Not a backyard bbq!

We are disappointed in Vinnie.

Charlize, though, you get an A+!

Yer a fighter, Ronda.

Ronda Rousey has remained relatively silent following her TKO loss to Amanda Nunes in late December.
