Watch Vin Diesel Explode at Charlize Theron's Comments That He Kisses Like 'a Dead Fish'

Watch Vin Diesel Explode at Charlize Theron's Comments That He Kisses Like 'a Dead Fish'
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 Reportedly Being Eyed for 'Fast and the Furious' Spinoff

Dwayne Johnson Reportedly Being Eyed for 'Fast and the Furious' Spinoff
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.

The 44-year-old actor is being eyed for a spinoff film alongside Jason Statham and Charlize Theron, Variety reports.

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.

The Fate of the Furious originally had a post-credits sequence, which Vin Diesel reportedly nixed

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

‘Death Proof’ and Quentin Tarantino’s Thunderous Roar of Total Cinematic Adrenaline

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

Box Office Sabermetrics: A Rock and a Hard Place

Earlier this year, the much anticipated box office juggernaut Furious 7 was released, and proceeded to break box office records on it’s way to a whopping $1.5 billion worldwide gross. This was great news for two of the film’s stars, The Rock (Never Dwayne Johnson, just The Rock) and Vin Diesel. They had just been a part of a groundbreaking money machine, so surely this success would carry over to their solo efforts, right? Yes and no. Both action heroes had come from similar narratives – good money in franchises, but failure with solo efforts (and both have two of the most entertaining social media presences, for what it’s worth) – but only one would overcome their woes. The Rock finally broke his cold slump at the box office, but Vin Diesel remained stale. 2015 has had plenty of interesting box office narratives, but none quite so Shakespearean as that of The Rock and Vin Diesel.

10 Things…. you didn’t know about ‘San Andreas’

The arrival of a movie starring Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, aka The Brahma Bull, aka The Great One, is always an occasion to celebrate, and here’s the first of a new series of tongue-in-cheek columns here at Thn which reveal ten things you didn’t know about the truly epic new action film, San Andreas.

Let’s count it down!

10. Something to do with GTA? Right?

No, this film has nothing at all to do with the popular video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, silly, but you have to admit that this dude has an array of tats to rival those of the Great One… New movie franchise opportunity? You read it here first.

9. So, San Andreas is where…?

The movie was shot largely in Australia. Not California, where the San Andreas Fault obviously is. We’re guessing it was cheaper, or maybe they relocated because…

8. … Kylie Minogue is in it.

Clint Mansell Will Scale Ben Wheatley’s 'High-Rise' And Score The Film

We've already got a number of reasons to be excited for "High-Rise." Of course, there's director Ben Wheatley. There's the awesome ensemble cast, which includes Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Elisabeth Moss, Luke Evans, and Stacy Martin. And now we've got the score to get buzzed about. Film Music Reporter reveals that the great Clint Mansell will score the movie. The composer is probably best known for his work with longtime collaborator Darren Aronofsky ("Black Swan" and "The Fountain" are particular highlights), but he has also lent to his talent to films as diverse as "Filth," "Faster," and "Last Night" (his work on the latter is particularly underrated). Needless to say, we're very excited to see what he brings to the J.G. Ballard adaptation about what happens when madness and violence envelop a luxury high-rise.  No release date yet for the film, but fingers are crossed and we're...

12 actors who could play The Saint in ITV's new series

It's been long in the works, but ITV has now confirmed that it's ordered a pilot for a revival of The Saint.

Set to go into production in 2016, this new take from writers Ed Whitmore (Arthur & George) and Chris Lunt (Prey) promises to bring Simon Templar - a roguish Robin Hood for the modern day - to a whole new audience.

But who could possibly follow in the esteemed footsteps of Sir Roger Moore (and Ian Ogilvy... and, erm, Val Kilmer) in bringing Leslie Charteris's gentleman thief to life? Digital Spy has picked out 12 potentials.

1. James Norton

Last year, Norton delivered two spectacularly disparate performances - as reprehensible Tommy Lee Royce on BBC One's Happy Valley and as 'sexy vicar' Sidney Chambers on ITV's Grantchester. Take a little of Royce's edginess, add a dash of Chambers's charm and you might just have yourself the perfect Saint.

2. Matthew Goode

The Longest Ride Gets A New, Very Long Trailer

In terms of movie adaptations, the output of bestselling author Nicholas Sparks stands as a perfect example of Hollywood’s adherence to the phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The “it” in question is Sparks’ very clear formula. With films such as The Notebook, The Last Song and Dear John in his back catalogue, we would surely be forgiven for thinking his storytelling, by this point, is simply a case of joining up the dots, and his latest romance – The Longest Ride – certainly looks as though it will prove that to be true.

Starring Britt Robertson (Cake) and Scott Eastwood (Fury), the Nicholas Sparks book is this time adapted by Craig Bolotin (Black Rain) and is directed by George Tillman Jr. (Faster). In it, another conventionally attractive young couple must overcome some obstacles to make their earth-shattering, life-changing, true love relationship work. You know, just like in The Notebook,

Watch Trailer for George Tillman Jr’s New Film 'The Longest Ride'

Admittedly, I was a little hesitant to post this, since it’s not a black film, as it doesn't tell a story about black people in it (at least, it doesn't look that way in the trailer). But it was directed by a black director, George Tillman Jr. And as you can see, his latest film, "The Longest Ride," for Fox, coming out on April 10th, is light years away from anything he’s done previously, including "Soul Food," "Notorious," "Men of Honor," "Faster" and "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete." This time around, Tillman heads straight into young rural romance territory, in this film version of Nicholas Sparks’ best...

"I cried at 'The Notebook.' If anybody said they didn't cry in 'The Notebook' they are just lying," Scott Eastwood declared to Et.

Anthony Mackie Takes the Lead in 'Make a Wish'

Anthony Mackie Takes the Lead in 'Make a Wish'
Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Anthony Mackie is joining forces with Dear White People director Justin Simien for the upcoming comedy Make A Wish. Paramount Pictures has acquired the script by first-time writer Zach Frenkel, which made the 2013 Black List. Anthony Mackie is also attached to executive produce, alongside Jason Newman and Jason Weinberg.

The story centers on pro football player Butchie Jones (Anthony Mackie), who grants the final wish of a young 14-year-old who worships the athlete. The wish proves to be quite difficult, since the youngster's last request is to lose his virginity. The young boy has yet to be cast at this time, and it isn't known when production will get under way. Robert Teitel (Faster) is producing alongside Jason Spire.

Anthony Mackie will next be seen in Black or White, Our Brand Is Crisis, Triple Nine and the Untitled Christmas Eve Project, which also stars Seth Rogen,

The Rock: Always The Rocksmaid, Never The Rocksgroom

This Friday will see the release of The Rock’s (None of this Dwayne Johnson nonsense, he’s The Rock) newest action tentpole Hercules, with him playing the historic hero. You’ve probably already made up your mind if you’re going to see this film or not, you’re not anxiously waiting on the fence. You probably haven’t given a second thought to Hercules. But I have, and for the first time in a long time, I’m worried about The Rock.

When you really stop to think about it, The Rock has built a career becoming one of the most unlikely box office superstars. In 2013 Forbes named him the highest grossing actor of the year with his films that year bringing in $1.3 billion. But I say box office superstar with a caveat: He only smashes numbers when he’s part of an ensemble. Put the guy in
