“I had been working with Paul Walker on another movie, Skulls, and I gave him the script [for The Fast and the Furious],” Moritz 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.”
Wow, The Fast and The Furious was almost the lamest movie ever made. Name a good Timothy Olyphant movie. Exactly, there aren’t any. Now name a good Vin Diesel movie. Yup, every single movie Vin Diesel is in. I’m glad Tim turned down Dom Toretto.
Vin Diesel IS Dom Toretto. He IS Fast and Furious. He drove in front of a fucking train. He drove out of a plane. He dragged a safe through the streets of Brazil, presumably slaying thousands. He almost murdered The Rock with a wrench.
Get Tim Olyphant out of my life.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Timothy Olyphant would’ve been a good Dom Toretto. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
