Vin Diesel Wasn't Original Choice for Fast & Furious' Dom Toretto - Find Out Who Turned Down Role!

The Fate of the Furious producer Neil H. Moritz just revealed that Vin Diesel wasn’t the original choice to play the role of Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious films!

Neil went on The Bill Simmons Podcast and spoke about how the studio originally tapped Justified‘s Timothy Olyphant for the role.

“I had been working with Paul Walker on another movie, Skulls, and I gave him the script [for The Fast and the Furious],” Neil said. “Rob Cohen, who I had made The Rat Pack with, we gave him the script. The two of them liked the idea. 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.”

Later, Neil met with Vin at a restaurant after seeing some of his work.

“I went and met him at Kate Mantilini [restaurant] and he wasn’t a star yet, but the great thing about Vin is he always believed he was a star,” Neil continued. “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. And then we started to make the movie.”

Of course, Vin has famously played the role of Dom since the release of the 2001 movie!

Timothy Olyphant Was the Victim of Secret Locker Room Photos, But He Seems Okay With It!

Timothy Olyphant is appearing on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and he opens up about what happened when he was informed that he was the victim of locker room voyeurism.

The 48-year-old Santa Clarita Diet actor explained that the Los Angeles Police Department approached him after they recognized him in a collection of photos that someone took of unsuspecting people in a gym locker room. The detectives assured him that the photos would never be released, but it seems Timothy would be okay with them getting out!

“I say, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa. It’s never going to get out?’ And he says, ‘No. It’s not a problem.’ And I say, ‘Well, how do I look?’,” Timothy said.

“Let’s think this through here. We could turn this frown around,” he joked. “I don’t know what the angle is, but this could be… Careers have been made out of perhaps less.”
