Personal Quote:

[on why he didn't do the "Fast and the Furious" sequel] I was being offered three franchises at the same time: Pitch Black (2000), xXx (2002) and The Fast and the Furious (2001) -- and I had to choose. I couldn't do all three. [he has since appeared in sequels to all three franchises] See more »
