Vin Diesel has now officially confirmed to MTV News that he will reprise his role as Dominic Toretto in a fourth “The Fast and the Furious”.
Diesel has refrained from giving a public statement for a while, but now says that “I think doing the cameo in ‘Tokyo Drift’ confirmed a lot of things for me. It confirmed that if you create a role that the world kind of identifies with, or the world adopts, sometimes you have that responsibility to revisit that role”.
Why’d it take him so long to come back to the franchise? “I’m a little bit slower than the average actor that just jumps into the sequel, but I think the time has come to revisit Dom Toretto.”
Vin also confirmed that Paul Walker has signed to reprise his role as well – “Gotta have Paul Walker” he says.
