Vin Diesel Opens Up About Having His Son Vincent Play A Young Version of Him in 'F9'

Vin Diesel got emotional talking about how his son, Vincent Sinclair, got to play a young version of his character in F9.

“By the time my children were born, I was usually working on a Fast & Furious movie,” Vin explains of Justin‘s idea to include the children of the stars in the film.

Jordana Brewster‘s son Julian Form also appears in the movie.

Vin went on, explaining that the movie might have sparked a passion in 10-year-old Vincent.

“The thing I remember the most was coming home that day, because when you see the movie, it’s kind of a deep scene so Dom is in a deep state of mind,” he says. “My son was watching me work all day and it wasn’t until I got home that I saw a twinkle in his eye because he had finally seen his father come home, opposed to being with Dom Toretto the whole day.”

F9 hits theaters on Friday, June 25.
