Vin Diesel has spoken. The franchise star uploaded a video on Facebook where he speaks about a lot of things – one of them being that The Rock wasn’t supposed to be Hobbs initially. Somewhere along the 22 minute mark, he says:
“We gave a role that was initially written for Tommy Lee Jones but we gave it to Dwayne, and he shined in it."
Now, Tommy Lee Jones is a great actor, but would be a good choice for all the action scenes that the Hobb’s character has been involved in the Fast films?
Fast 8 releases in 2017, the film has already grabbed headlines because of the rumours surrounding the film. SpotboyE.com told you when rumours of a Vin Diesel and The Rock feud hit the Internet (Does the Rock really have a fight to pick with his Fast and Furious 8 co-stars? August 9).
With not much on that front being discussed, we thought that the controversy was over and done with. But by hinting that The Rock was the second choice for the role, will it cause a big rift between The Rock and Vin Diesel?
