Paul Walker Connection? How Vin Diesel Felt When He Met John Cena on the 'F9' Set

The new “F9: The Fast Saga” trailer just dropped, and “Extra’s” Nate Burleson is dishing on the movie with star Vin Diesel.

Vin opened up about the excitement surrounding the film and how John Cena landed the role of his character Dominic Toretto’s brother.

Diesel recalled when he first met Cena, he felt his late friend and co-star Paul Walker had sent him. He explained, “I have a dojo, a Dom shrine where I would go get into character, get into a state of mind… [Cena] came in to meet me and — it sounded crazy at the time, it probably still sounds crazy — I had felt Pablo, Paul Walker, had sent him into the shrine… And I didn’t question it at all. I said, ‘That’s the brother.’”

“F9: The Fast Saga” opens June 25, 2021.
