Vin Diesel Teases ‘Fast & Furious 9,’ Celebrates Daughter Similce’s Acting Debut in Netflix Spinoff ‘Spy Racers’

Published

on

A family-friendly version of the “Fast & Furious” world revved up at Universal City’s AMC Theatre on Saturday, with Vin Diesel bringing 11-year-old daughter Similce to the premiere of the Netflix and DreamWorks animated series, “Fast & Furious: Spy Racers,” which features both of their voices and Diesel as an executive producer.
The streaming show is the first TV spinoff of the 18-year-old film franchise and will tide fans over before “Fast & Furious 9” hits theaters next May. “Fast & Furious: Spy Racers” focuses on Dominic Toretto’s cousin Tony (voiced by “Teen Wolf’s” Tyler Posey) and his group of young, spy-race recruit friends. Similce lends her voice to the newly created character of Sissy Benson, the sister of one of Tony’s crew members, Frostee (voiced by Luke Youngblood). “Fast & Furious: Spy Racers” marks her acting debut.
Giving Similce a huge and introducing her to the crowd before the premiere screening, Diesel reflected on the day Similce was born, while 2009’s “Fast & Furious” was filming. Diesel revealed he had been keeping her birth date a secret, even from his co-stars, including from the late Paul Walker, whom Diesel calls “Pablo.”

[Similce] was born while we were shooting ‘Fast 4,’” Diesel said. “It was a long day, where Pablo and I were fighting each other in this scene. He came to my trailer at the end of the day and said, ‘Something is on your mind.’ I had a secret. I wasn’t telling anyone in the world that my daughter was about to be born. I’ll never forget what he said to me. He said, ‘Vin, you go into that hospital room, and you cut the umbilical cord. It will be the best day of your life.’ That’s the day that she was born. I say that because that’s how real the themes of familyhood run in the ‘Fast & Furious’ saga, and why I am so proud.”
Walker’s 21-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker, also attended Saturday’s event, in addition to “Fast & Furious: Spy Racers” cast members Camille Ramsey, Charlet Chung, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Jorge Diaz and Manish Dayal.
Diesel also gave a brief preview of the upcoming “Fast & Furious 9,” which wrapped filming in November. “We know that ‘Fast 9’ is all fatherhood,” he told the crowd.
[Spoiler alert: Dom’s son, Baby Brian (named after Walker’s character Brian O’Conner) was introduced in 2017’s “Fate of the Furious,” and looks to play into next year’s film, as well. His mom is Elena Neves, played by Elsa Pataky. In June, Diesel and his movie sister Jordana Brewster (who plays Mia Toretto) introduced Isaac — the child actor who plays Baby Brian — via Instagram video.]

“Fast & Furious: Spy Racers” begins streaming on Dec. 26 on Netflix.

Michelle Rodriguez Change from childhood to 2019 (Then and Now)

Published

on

Michelle Rodriguez – american actress, screenwriter, and DJ. Rodriguez spent her childhood shuttled between the Dominican Republic, Texas and Puerto Rico. She landed her first role in the film Girlfight after beating out 350 other hopeful actresses who auditioned for the lead. Rodriguez endured months of intense physical training in preparation for her role as the angry and fearless Diana Guzman. It paid off—the role garnered her rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. She also won the Gotham Award for Breakthrough performance. Roles in the telefilm 3 A.M., opposite Danny Glover and Pam Grier, and feature films The Fast And The Furious starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker and Resident Evil (2002) followed.

In 2005 she joined the cast of the hit ABC series Lost, playing tough girl Ana-Lucia Cortez. While in Hawaii shooting the series, Rodriguez was arrested on a DUI. The incident violated her California probation for a hit and run DUI and driving with a suspended license.

She served 65 hours out of a five day sentence behind bars in Hawaii, and was due to serve 60 days in jail in California, but spent just over four hours there before being released due to overcrowding. Her bout with the law didn’t hurt her career, however, as she landed a starring role in James Cameron’s mega-hit Avatar (2009), then she had the opportunity to return to the Fast & Furious franchise with Fast & Furious 6 (2013).

She also starred in Machete Kills(2013) alongside Danny Trejo and Sofia Vergara, and Furious 7 (2015) alongside Vin Diesel. Michelle’s latest credits include the action thriller The Assignment (2017) with Sigourney Weaver, the animated comedy Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) with Julia Roberts and Joe Manganiello, and the action thriller The Fate of the Furious (2017), in which she reprises her role as Letty ‘Ortiz’ Toretto alongside Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.

Paul Walker’s Daughter Awarded $10.1 Million In Lawsuit Over His Death

Published

on

The 19-year-old reached a settlement with the estate of Roger Rodas, the driver who was also killed.Meadow Walker, the 19-year-old daughter of actor Paul Walker, has been awarded $10.1 million in a settlement with the estate of Roger Rodas. Both Rodas and Walker died when the Porsche Carrera GT Rodas was driving crashed and exploded Nov., 20, 2013.

”The amount paid by the estate of Roger Rodas into a trust for Meadow Walker only covers a fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not tragically been cut short,” Meadow’s lawyer Jeff Milam said in a statement to People on Thursday. “Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash. Meadow’s lawsuit against Porsche AG — a $13 billion corporation — intends to hold the company responsibly for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker’s death.”

On Monday, a judge ruled that there was not enough evidence to prove that Porsche was responsible for the crash in the lawsuit brought by the Rodas estate. However, Meadow’s lawyer says that ruling has no impact on his client’s case against the car company.”The issues in the cases are very different,” Milam said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “The federal case was filed on behalf of Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT and was killed instantly upon impact. Meadow’s father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle’s defects. A significant portion of the judge’s decision was based on his rejection of evidence because of missed deadlines and also a failure to sue Porshe AG, the manufacturer. Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills.”PAUL WALKER

Daughter’s Lawyer Says PORSCHE’S VICTORY IS IRRELEVANTPorsche will have to pay up dearly in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Paul Walker’s daughter, despite the car company’s win against the driver’s widow … so says Meadow Walker’s lawyer. Attorney Jeff Milam tells TMZ, Porsche’s big victory will have no impact on Meadow’s case … for several reasons. First, a federal judge ruled against Roger Rodas’ widow, and Meadow has filed in a different legal system … L.A. County Superior Court.

The federal dismissal has no bearing on Meadow’s case. Even more important, Milam says Rodas was killed instantly upon impact, adding, “Meadow’s father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle’s defects.” TMZ broke the story, the judge in the Rodas case ruled the claim that the fuel cell was compromised in the crash is irrelevant, because it has nothing to do with the cause of his death. Meadow’s lawyer is claiming the fire was the cause of Paul’s demise, and he’d still be alive were it not for a defect in the cell. Milam says, “Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills.”
