With The Rock focused on his “Fast & Furious” spinoff film, it looks like Vin Diesel has turned to another actor to fill the void … AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA!
“Guys, as you know I’m always thinking fast and thinking about the responsibility of making something iconic,” Diesel said in a video on Thursday that he shared via Instagram.
Adding, “I know this sounds crazy, but every blue moon I feel like Pablo up there sends me someone, another soldier for the fight for truth, and today someone came by the Toretto gym that speaks to what Pablo would’ve brought me.”
Vin Diesel then pans over to show John Cena standing next to him.
FYI — Pablo is the name Vin calls Paul Walker, who died in 2013 after crashing his car.
Back in January, The Rock confirmed he would not appear in Fast 9 due to the spinoff movie “Hobbs & Shaw” that he’s making with Jason Statham (which also features Roman Reigns).
