The beloved "Fast and Furious" franchise has always been known for its star-studded ensemble cast, and it seems like there's no end to the A-list talent joining the crew. From Charlize Theron to Helen Mirren, Rita Moreno to Jason Momoa, the roster just keeps growing.

But with one final film left in the high-octane saga after the upcoming release of "Fast X," actor Vin Diesel knows exactly who he wants to bring into the family next: Robert Downey Jr. At the premiere of the "Fast X" trailer, Variety's Marc Malkin asked Diesel about his dream casting, and the answer was instantaneous. Without a moment's hesitation, Diesel revealed that he wants Downey Jr. to join the franchise. But the question now is, who would Downey Jr. play in the action-packed series? Diesel shared a few details about the potential character, teasing the audience without giving too much away. He explained that this new character would be the complete opposite of his own character, Dom Toretto. This individual would promote AI and driverless cars, advocating for a future where freedom is traded for convenience—a philosophy that Dom would strongly oppose. When pressed about whether Diesel had pitched the role to Downey Jr., the actor responded playfully yet with a hint of menace in his voice.

He growled and expressed mock outrage at the question, saying, "How dare you ask me this question in front of all these people? I have pride and I have dignity." Not to be overshadowed, Diesel's co-star Michelle Rodriguez also had her own thoughts about potential cast additions for the final "Fast and Furious" film. As fans eagerly await the release of "Fast X" and the final film in the beloved franchise, it's clear that the action-packed series will continue to surprise and entertain with its star power and high-speed thrills.
