With the finale of the Furious franchise approaching, Vin Diesel took a risky move — he publicly pleaded for Johnson to reprise his role as Hobbs one last time in Fast 10. His letter, which he posted (via Instagram), began with Vin pleading to his “little brother Dwayne.” He attempted to appeal to Johnson with love from his own children and an obligation to the late Paul Walker and Furious’ destiny. His appeal, however, seemed to fall flat. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Johnson laughed out Diesel’s earlier comments about his “tough love,” saying that one part of him feels that “there’s no way I would dignify any of that bullsh*t with an answer.” Diesel’s claim that they’re brothers was not appreciated by Johnson, either: “I have one big brother, and it’s my half brother. And that’s it.” Despite Diesel’s attempt to bring Johnson back to the Furious franchise, the star seems dedicated to his decision not to reprise his role as Hobbs in the main Fast & Furious franchise any time soon.
