10 Pair Of Actors With The Most Believable Chemistry, According To Reddit

With Nope recently praised due to the captivating chemistry between Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya, now it’s time for the comedy movie Bros to shine, with viewers falling in love with the film’s main couple, played by Billy Eichner and Luke Macfarlane.

It’s a tradition for romance movies and buddy comedies to find a pair of actors that complete each other’s performances, but sometimes the chemistry between actors clicks naturally and Redditors share their favorite picks.

Danny Glover & Mel Gibson

Danny Glover and Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon

Greythespian suggests Danny Glover and Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon and claims, “the entire franchise is built on their chemistry.” The friendship between the two cops grows in an engaging fashion and it’s clear with each movie how much they evolved solely because they had each other to rely on.

In the first film, Gibson’s character, Riggs, was way too impulsive and quite unreliable after his wife’s death, in contrast with the veteran and solemn detective Murtaugh, who turned out to be the only person capable of putting Riggs in line and giving him the comfort and family that he desperately needed. The two then immortalized their place in cinema history as one of the most dynamic duos out there, evolving the traditional comedic cop-buddy formula into something deeper and more significant.

Ethan Hawke & Julie Delpy

pore_area suggests, “Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy”. There’s a special reason why the entire Before trilogy is considered one of the best cinematic portrayals of love and relationship: Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy play one of the most believable couples of all time, and their love is developed realistically through conversations, small gestures, and passionate stares.
Director Richard Linklater knew it would be difficult to transmit real love in a story that takes place only in a few hours but the two actors brilliantly understood the assignment. The way Hawke and Delpy embrace each other in the movie and deeply try to understand what the other is saying is truly mesmerizing, making hard to believe the two actors aren’t in fact in love with each other.

Paul Walker & Vin Diesel

Dom and Brian look concerned after surviving a car crash in The Fast and the Furious

Free_Perspective773 cites several action film pairs, including “Paul Walker and Vin Deisel”. The friendship between Dom Toretto and Brian O’Conner will always be remembered as one of the best of any action movie, which makes the loss of Paul Walker even more heartbreaking. Although the successful Fast & Furious franchise went on without him, it lacks chemistry as believable and compelling to watch as the one Paul Walker shared with Vin Diesel.
The way the friendship between the two develops made a huge impression in the generation that grew up with the franchise and the absence of Paul Walker is constantly honored in the new movies, celebrating the duo.

Tom Holland & Zendaya

Spidey and MJ at the end of Spider-Man Far From Home

Two of the most promising young actors who had their breakout in the 2010s, Tom Holland and Zendaya are so great together in the MCU Spider-Man trilogy that their onscreen relationship later translated to an offscreen romance.
Since the first Spider-Man when the romance of their characters was barely a suggestion, every scene featuring interactions between the two was a major highlight and provided fans with a welcoming taste of high-school drama. GrayRoberts brings up, “Tom Holland and Zendaya”, and the reason the chemistry between the two is so believable is due to how real their love feels in the light of all the fantasy and action that makes up a superhero movie.

Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law

SuperNntendoChlmers says, “Downey Jr and Jude Law in the Sherlock Holmes movies”. While Guy Ritchie’s take on the popular Sherlock Holmes story wasn’t well-received by everyone, most people agree that the performances carried the movie alone. Fans wouldn’t expect less from talented actors such as Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, who play respectively the iconic Sherlock Holmes and John Watson duo.

The chemistry between the two works so well because of the distinctiveness they brought to their characters; Downey Jr. making use of his natural talent for comedy applied to a character often regarded as too self-contained, and Law offering the most enthusiastic version of Dr. Watson yet.

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully from The X-Files.

The legendary chemistry between David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson is so iconic that they ended up appearing in a discussion predominantly about movies. Mentioning the two X-Files protagonists, Agent_Tomm claims, “they’re yin and yang.”
The two play Fox Mulder and Dana Scully respectively, two special agents investigating a series of paranormal cases. They truly complete each other onscreen, with Duchovny playing the moody and jerky detective and Anderson the calm and analytical one. The divergent method of both are crucial when dealing with the countless mysterious cases of the show, with an onscreen chemistry so incredible that no other actor could ever replace these characters.

Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman

Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca

, Casablanca’s Rick and Ilsa are immortalized as one of movies most famous couples. There are many reasons why the couple bidding farewell to each other remains one of the most recreated, timeless scenes of all time: their chemistry together is so good that viewers themselves can feel the melancholy of that goodbye.
Jolly_Job_9852 mentions, “Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman”, and it’s still amazing to see the effect of the two performances 80 years after Casablanca came out, with the two prolific actors pouring everything in to the performance.

Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone

La La Land - Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

pavlikovskys suggests, “Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone”, as a pair with the most believable chemistry but ashthundercrow went further and said, “Ryan Gosling & [Insert actor here]”, implying that the actor simply goes along with anyone onscreen.

However, his performances alongside Emma Stone truly stand out, from Crazy, Stupid Love to La La Land. The latter earned two Oscar nominations to both and Stone deservedly won hers. Their believable chemistry as a couple ensures all stages of love are realistically portrayed, from the initial spark of passion to the melancholic farewell. The fascinating look they share at the end of La La Land is a great example of how well the two actors understand their character’s relationship.

Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler in 50 First Dates

It shouldn’t come as a surprise how three of Adam Sandler’s most rewatchable movies feature captivating romantic chemistry between him and Drew Barrymore. As cuddly_hedgehog states, “they’ve been friends for years and their families vacation together”, which explains why it always looks like they’re having a blast shooting movies together.
Apart from being great friends in real life, it’s amusing to see how well they work as a couple onscreen. From the countless love confessions of 50 First Dates to the adorable sexual tension between the two in The Wedding Singer, fans can’t wait to see them performing together once again.

Brad Pitt & Leonard DiCaprio

Sten12 mentions, “Pitt and DiCaprio in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”. Considering both actors are among the most legendary of their generation, it’s surprising to see how they only got together in a movie in 2019, but it was for the greater good: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is directed by Quentin Tarantino, who previously worked with both of them separately. Since the two actors were familiar with the director, it was probably an easy job for Tarantino to establish good chemistry among them.
The pair plays a couple of friends who seem to only have one another in the vibrant Hollywood scene of the 1960s. They work together as two different extremes: Pitt’s character is a self-assured, bad-tempered stunt double to DiCaprio’s sensitive, insecure actor. The two are so experienced and have known each other so long, its no wonder they naturally bounce off each other onscreen.

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.

Fast & Furious 11
is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
