QUIZ: Can YOU Match The Fast & Furious Star To Their Car!?

no title

Most Fast & Furious fans wish they could drift like the pros on the big screen.

But participating in illegal street races and high octane heists is *probably* best left to Vin Diesel and the gang.

Thankfully, we have a much safer alternative for gearheads to put their furious obsession to the test: a car-to-character guessing game!

It might sound easy, but with a franchise with seven films each featuring dozens of vehicles… you might have to slam on the breaks for this one.

Are YOU able to guess which cars were driven by Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and other Fast alum throughout the franchise? Buckle up and find out (below)!

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!

Fate Of The Furious Is Disjointed, Nonsensical, High-Octane Action — And No One's Complaining! See The Fate In Our Review Roundup!

no title

In the span of 7 films, the Fast and the Furious franchise grew from a fast-paced B-action film to a full-blown, star-studded blockbuster franchise — and if Fast 8 is any indication, this series doesn't plan on slowing down.

But from the absence of series favorite Paul Walker to an overcrowded cast of action stars, how did The Fate Of The Furious fare with the backseat drivers of cinema, the critics?

Not so bad, it seems — as the film currently has a 79% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Because nearly every early viewer knew the mindless action they were getting into, and praised the film for raising the bar with even more over the top stunts and explosions! (Dom racing a heat seeking missile? Sure, why not!)

Of course, those who actually paid attention to the story had a laundry list of complaints including: logic-defying action plots, a disjointed narrative, and unfathomable character decisions to make old enemies part of the gang.

Still, critics couldn't help but love Vin Diesel's grunty dialogue and testosterone-fueled one-upmanship between Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham — not to mention series newcomers Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren adding some much needed femme fatalism!

These 'Freelance Journalist' Bros Asking Their City Council To Build A Statue Of Paul Walker Will Give You Hope — Even Though It Was All A Prank!

| Filed under: PolitikPrankPaul WalkerViral: News

no title

The city of San Clemente needs a hero to look up to in these dark and gnarly times, and two surfer bros have the perfect solution: erect a giant statue of Paul Walker in the middle of the coastal California town.

Last week, two unassuming bros petitioned the San Clemente City Council to construct a 12-foot-tall steel statue of the late actor, making him the official icon of the town.

Speaking to the council, the impassioned dudes said the Walker statue could be "a beacon of headlights that can guide us down the poldusty road" in an otherwise "bummer year."

The speeches from a guy named Chad Kroeger and his pal Bodhi are caked with plenty of references to the Fast & Furious franchise — and even nods to more obscure Walker titles like Meet The Deedles and Eight Below.

Though it all comes crumbling down when the council asks if the actor has any ties to the town of San Clemente. (He does not, but his cousin went to high school there!)

If these two earnest surfer bros fighting to erect a statue of their bro-y icon seems too good to be true — it's because it is.

The fact that the first speaker's name is the lead singer from Nickelback tipped off some viewers that this stunt is actually

Paul Walker's Daughter Claims Porsche Employees Laugh Over Car Crashes — And She Has PROOF!

Paul Walker's tragic death could have been prevented, and his daughter isn't going to rest until she proves it.

Meadow Walker's latest legal filing in her wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche accuses the car company of hiding key information by heavily redacting what they were legally forced to send to her legal team.

Apparently one of Meadow's lawyers was able to see through the blacked out sections on a more advanced computer. And what Meadow and the team saw sickened them.

In a series of emails, employees actually joked about the high number of crashes of the Carrera GT, the car in which Paul and his friend Roger Rodas died.

In an excerpt, one employee writes:

Vin Diesel doesn't want to let the late Paul Walker down.

The upcoming The Fate of the Furious will mark the first Fast & Furious film to not feature Walker since 2006's Tokyo Drift.

And because "Pablo" is never far from Diesel's mind, the actor once again paid tribute to his fallen costar, who died in a car accident in 2013, in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

The 49-year-old shared a throwback photo of the dynamic duo at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards, where they won the award for best on-screen team for their work in the original Fast and the Furious movie.

In the caption, Diesel spoke on the "challenging task" of shooting the successful franchise's latest installment without Walker, writing:
