The men who play Dom and Brian in the “Fast & Furious” films were just as tight when the rolling cameras turned to home video
Vin Diesel promised his Facebook fans something special and he delivered on Tuesday night. The actor posting an 18-and-a-half-minute behind-the-scenes look at his friendship with “Fast & Furious” co-star Paul Walker.
Along with the video, Diesel wrote: “A glimpse… of Dom and Brian… off screen.”
In the clip, the two “brothers” goofed around promoting the film, hanging out on-set and off, even interviewing each other at one point for Moviefone’s “Unscripted.” They talked cars, booze, women, running from the cops and the future of the franchise — which Diesel believed was going to make it to movies number 9 or 10.
At one particularly touching moment towards the end, Diesel leads a birthday cake-surprise serenade outside his beloved co-star’s trailer.
Walker died in November, as a passenger in a single car accident in Valencia, Calif. The driver, Walker’s friend and business partner Roger Rodash, was driving a Porshe at speeds in excess of 100 mph, when they hit a curb and struck a tree, then a light post, on the driver’s side. The collision caused the car to spin again, striking a tree on the passenger’s side before bursting into flames, according to an eyewitness account.
Walker, 40, had been in Valencia for a fundraiser benefiting his charity Reach Out Worldwide. Rodas was 38.
