"Was puttin' on my shoes to get ready to hit the gym before I go to work," the 45-year-old actor wrote. "This lil' mama surprised me by runnin' into my arms and yelling 'Daaaahdeeeeee' which in my mind clearly means, 'Happy birthday daddy! You're the coolest daddy on the planet and the sexiest man alive, now go crush your workout and keep stayin' woke'. »
Vin Diesel is here to set the record straight!
The 49-year-old Fate of the Furious star appears on Tuesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he responds to his co-star Charlize Theron's comments on the show earlier this month regarding their on-screen kiss. Theron compared Diesel to a "dead fish," and said she preferred "more movement" in her men.
"I'm the crazy chick that’s doing this horrible thing to him and, as he should've, his character is just standing there frozen, like a dead fish," Theron, 41, explained.

But Diesel isn't taking the comments lying down.
"What?! C'mon guys! Do I look like a dead fish?!" Diesel yells, jumping out of his chair after DeGeneres reads him the comments. "First of all, you don't come on Ellen with the wonderful animation of Finding Dory and compare me to a dead fish."

Dwayne Johnson may have just joined the Fast and the Furious squad a few years ago, but he might have a lot more of the franchise in his future.
According to the outlet, the idea for a spinoff featuring Johnson has been thrown around since his character, Hobbs, entered the franchise in 2011's Fast Five, though plans are still in preliminary stages and a script has yet to be written.
The film would reportedly revolve around Hobbs and Statham's Deckard Shaw going after the newest villain to the franchise, Theron's Cipher, and be written by series architect, Chris Morgan.

To the surprise of many fans of the franchise, The Fate of the Furious did not have a post-credits sequence, but The Wrap has learned that one did previously exist. The stinger centered on the characters of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, who have dynamite chemistry together and steal the show.
There are currently two insider rumors going around. The first is that Vin Diesel was “enraged” that NBC Universal shot the scene without his permission or knowledge to the point where he demanded the film be recut to remove it.
This could explain why there is tension between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel, as prior to the film’s release The Rock spoke about his co-stars, stating that: “Some conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chickenshit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you »

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.
Grindhouse was intended to be the ultimate homage to the kinda cool, kinda sexy, kinda divine (but not too divine as to make you realize you’re still dealing with trash), kinda exploitation cinema on which Quentin Tarantino »

Last Week’S Review: ‘Something They Need’ Has A Lot Going On, But Little To Show For It
Whose Episode Is It?
It’s the Season 7 finale, so everyone is accounted for, and I mean everyone. (Except, weirdly, for Gregory. I guess Xander Berkley don’t come cheap?) The whole company is on hand for what turns out to be a surprisingly effective action climax. I know I said last week that there were very few specific stakes heading into the finale, which remains true, but “First Day” does its darndest to set up a plausible situation where all the various factions can come together to slug it out, even if it’s all just set up for next year’s big war. Of course most of the goodwill is undercut by a punishing 90-minute runtime and a last-minute descent into mawkish sentimentality, but it’s still better than expected. »
