'Fast and Furious 6' speeds into theaters this weekend, so we thought it would be fun to take a drive down memory lane to look at the cast of the film way back when the franchise started back in 2001. (For those actors/characters who weren't in the earlier films, we found photos of them from back when 'The Fast and the Furious' debuted.) Read on to see what your favorite cast members looked like then and what they're up to now.
Marvel has expressed interest in working with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The Rock has expressed interest in playing Luke Cage for Marvel. Seemingly, there's nothing preventing this match made in superhero heaven from happening...except perhaps the fans. Would you want to see The Rock tackle Luke Cage?
'Fast Five' attempted - and quite successfully I might add - a reboot of sorts for the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise, turning a series of movies about car racing into one exciting heist film. It was big and brash and sweaty and a complete success. So where do you go from there? 'Fast and Furious 6' attempts to answer that question by adding an -er suffix to all those adjectives above. Bigger, brasher, sweatier.
'Fast and Furious 6' is like 'Fast Five' on nitrous - director Justin Lin hits that proverbial turbo boost to go bigger, faster, stronger - and at times, that is a great thing. But when the NOS runs out, the drag race just turns into a drag.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has found his niche in the movie world and is milking it for all it's worth. Aside from his recent stints in 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' and 'Pain & Gain,' we're about to see him in 'Fast and Furious 6,' possibly a 'Fast and Furious' spinoff and the upcoming 'Hercules.' There's no stopping this superstar and it looks like Marvel's now eyeing him for future superhero movies.
After dominating the box office this past weekend with Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain,' Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Mark Wahlberg are heading to the last place we expected to find them -- the small screen. The body-building duo will reunite for an upcoming HBO drama pilot about retired athletes in Miami, with Johnson set to star and Peter Berg attached to direct a script from 'Entourage' writer Stephen Levinson. But is there any chance HBO would pass on such a star-studded series?
This latest 'Fast and Furious 6' trailer is the most intense one yet! You don't wanna miss this...
I watch a lot of 'Project Runway.' My wife likes it -- and, yeah, I like it too. A show dedicated to fashion design that features creative and powerful women is a weird thing to think about while watching a Michael Bay movie but that's exactly what I did during 'Pain and Gain.' Bay could learn a thing or two from that show about editing. Not in the cinematic, cutting shots together sense; that he's got. This is a different kind of editing.
It's the kind that is often called out by the 'Runway' judges when they tell the contestants (I'm paraphrasing), "This is too busy. You need to edit. That blue fuzzy hat that looks like a tribble distracts from the gorgeous, ornately sequined dress. The dress is enough. You don't need the tribble hat. Edit."
A Michael Bay movie -- particularly 'Pain & Gain' -- is a sequined dress with a blue tribble hat.
If there's one thing that we know for sure, it's that there is no way that 'Fast and Furious 6' won't be one of this summer's biggest crowd pleasers. A new featurette about the latest entry in this seemingly unstoppable franchise has arrived and it's only managed to get us more excited about seeing this crew get back together.
