5 Fast & Furious Characters Who Would Make Great Roommates (& 5 That Would Be The Worst)

A roommate is more than somebody people live and share chores with; they’re somebody whom people can confide in, trust around their belongings, and spend quality time with. And that’s what makes the Fast & Furious crew a group of fascinating candidates for roommates.

The gang already spend most of their time together, and for all fans know, they could very well be living together in Dom’s suburban house. Between being taught Spanish by Tej and borrowing Han’s Mazda RX-7, some would be a dream to live with. However, not all of them have the traits of what makes a great roommate, as a couple of them would quickly get annoying — and some couldn’t even be trusted.

Great: Roman “Rome” Pearce

Surprisingly enough, Rome ended up being the most heroic character in F9, as he was willing to sacrifice his life for the greater good. But that isn’t why he’d make a great roommate. When it comes to his involvement in the crew’s adventures, Rome is almost unwilling to be a part of it, only to be dragged along against his will.
To be Rome’s roommate is to lead a simple life, and though it wouldn’t be full of adventures, it’d be calm and there’d be good company. Rome is always full of jokes and he’s always trying to entertain people, so his roommate would never be bored.

Worst: Letty Ortiz

It isn’t so much that the roommate wouldn’t want to live with Letty, but Letty wouldn’t want to live with whoever her roommate was. Letty is so stubborn that she wouldn’t be able to compromise in any sort of living situation.
The character might be tough, but that toughness often gets in the way of her enjoying her life, such as when she couldn’t resist jumping on her bike to help the crew at the beginning of F9. That kind of attitude wouldn’t translate well when it comes to being a roommate either.

Great: Tej Parker

There have been times when Tej was the smartest in Fast and Furious, such as when he hacked into Reyes’ safe and came up with the idea for a Nos-fuelled harpoon. But more than anything, he had the idea to live a quiet life even before Brian, as he wanted to settle down and run a garage after Fast Five.
Not much sounds better than working on cars with Tej, and his roommate could even get language lessons from him, as Tej is bilingual, being fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. And even better than chilling in Miami, living in cabins, and betting on jet ski races together sounds like a great time with a roommate.

Worst: Luke Hobbs

One of the most common arguments between real-life roommates is about the bathroom, and the state in which one of the roommates leaves it. That would be a major sticking point if living with Hobbs. The character’s roommate would have to make sure they get there first in the morning, otherwise they’d be walking into a steamy bathroom covered in baby oil.

The same could be said for the kitchen too, as Hobbs’ cheat days probably aren’t too different from the Rock’s, which is made up of thousands of calories worth of peanut butter and syrup-covered waffles (as reported by Food Network). The federal law enforcement agent might be great at his job, but he’d be a mess to live with.

Great: Mia Toretto

It almost seems as if the Fast & Furious characters are split into two camps, as half of them are always prepared for the most outrageous situations, and the other half want nothing to do with it. Mia fits into the latter, as she has been off the grid for most of the movies, and she never approved of Dom’s criminal activity in The Fast and the Furious.
It seems like Mia will be involved in the action change in a major way in the future. She was a big part of F9 and there are rumors of an all-female spin-off. However, Mia would be the most lowkey roommate out of anyone in the Fast and Furious crew.

Worst: Brian O’Conner

There are two sides to Brian, as, on the one side, he’s easy-going and doesn’t take things half as seriously as Dom. But on the other, there’s the pressure of being an undercover cop and the stress and nausea that comes with it.
As anybody who has seen Donnie Brasco and The Departed knows, being an undercover cop brings a lot of baggage into the home. And though the Fast & Furious series obviously doesn’t approach those themes, there are clear signs of it in the first movie. Living with Brian might sound fun, as he’s a car fanatic and an adrenaline junkie, but in reality, he’d be a burden.

Great: Sean Boswell

Ever since his introduction in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Sean has always been a pleasure seeker, and though that’s exactly what kept getting him into trouble, it can work out in small doses. And as Sean is now essentially a rocket scientist, who knows what other inventions he has created that his roommates have access to.

More than anything, Sean moves from country to country, as he moved from Tucson, Arizona to Tokyo, and then to Germany where he worked on the rocket, Pontiac Fiero. That means that the shared home could be anything from a traditional Japanese apato to a farmhouse in Cologne, and either is more exciting than Dom’s suburban family home.

Worst: Ramsey

Ramsey had more screentime in F9, which was great because she is a fun character, but it also meant that a lot was revealed about her. Firstly, one of the appeals of living with Fast & Furious characters would be the access to Japanese imports and supercars, but as Ramsey can’t drive, it means there’d be no Nissan Skylines or Mazda RX-7s to whizz around in.
Not only that, but when she was blasting through Edingburgh in the truck, it showed how callous she was about other people’s belongings. But above all else, it turns out that she’s really mean-spirited, as she (along with Tej) bullied Rome for his beliefs throughout the whole movie.

Great: Han Seoul-Oh

Han eats chips in Tokyo Drift

How could anybody not want to live with Han? The character, who was introduced in Tokyo Drift, oozes cool, as he spends his nightlife in neon-lit Japanese parking lots watching street races. The character is so inviting and quick to trust people, as he let Sean race his car without even knowing him, so there’d be no end to cars at his roommate’s disposal.
Best of all, as Han had the most tragic death in the series, only to come back to life, his roommate may be able to squeeze the truth out of him. And as a bonus, the kitchen would be filled with endless amounts of chips.

Worst: Dom Toretto

Dom and Brian meet for the first time in Fast & Furious

In many ways, Dom could be looked at as the real villain of the series, as he forced Rome and Tej to literally go on a suicide mission. That’s just one example, as the character has always muscled others into doing things they don’t want to do, and nobody wants to live with somebody like that.
Everybody knows that awkward moment when people have to ask “What?” when they mishear somebody more than twice, and that would be exactly what’d happen every day living with Dom. Dom mumbles so much that it’s impossible to catch everything he says. And it’s hardly worth being a part of his family, even if the fridge is always stocked with Corona.

Fast & Furious 11 Needs Hobbs Vs. Dom (To End The Rock & Vin Diesel’s Feud)


Fast and Furious 11 needs to feature an epic fight between The Rock and Vin Diesel to resolve the real-life feud and bring closure to their characters’ relationship. The clash between Dom and Hobbs in Fast Five was a game-changer, and revisiting that epic confrontation in Fast 11 would elevate the action and add nostalgia. A showdown between Dom and Hobbs in Fast 11 could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation, reaffirming the underlying themes of family and unity in the franchise.

Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has returned to the Fast Saga, Fast and Furious 11 needs to include an epic fight between Johnson and Vin Diesel. In the high-octane world of the Fast and Furious franchise, the thrill of fast cars and heart-stopping action has always been amplified by the magnetic on-screen chemistry between its stars. However, a real-life feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel has been brewing since 2016. Director Louis Leterrier achieved the impossible by bringing The Rock back into the fold. Now, he must find a way to reunite Luke Hobbs and Dominic Toretto on-screen.

Ever since Fate of the Furious, the void left by The Rock’s absence has grown more conspicuous. The actor’s feud with Vin Diesel has cast a shadow over the franchise, making it increasingly difficult for the writers and directors to craft a cohesive narrative. As Fast Saga fans await the next installment, all eyes are on Leterrier to weave a compelling story that not only showcases jaw-dropping action but also offers a chance for Hobbs and Dom to partake in an epic showdown.

Fast X and Fast and Furious 11 act as sequels to Fast Five in many ways, so it makes perfect sense for the upcoming installment to build on the fight scene between Dom and Hobbs from Fast Five. The clash between the two powerhouse characters left an indelible mark on fans. Revisiting that epic confrontation could elevate the adrenaline-fueled action and add a layer of nostalgia to Fast and Furious 11. Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had a change of heart and returned to the Fast Saga, the anticipation for a rematch between his and Vin Diesel’s characters has reached a fever pitch.

Dom and Hobbs’ showdown in Fast Five was a game-changer for the franchise, propelling it to new heights with its intensity and raw energy. Given the unresolved tension between the two stars in real life, a meticulously crafted fight scene in Fast 11 has the potential to invigorate the climax of the series and provide a cathartic experience for the actors and fans alike. As Fast 11 may be the final chapter in the Fast and Furious universe, all eyes are on this anticipated clash. Hopefully, a brotherly fight will be the defining moment that brings harmony back to the Fast Saga family.

The Rock & Vin Diesel Can Put Their Feud To Rest On Screen

Vin Diesel and The Rock’s personal history adds a layer of complexity to any potential fight between their characters in Fast and Furious 11. Given their real-life feud, it’s unlikely either actor would be portrayed as the clear winner or loser. Moreover, from a storytelling perspective, it would be counterproductive to have Dom excessively harm or kill Hobbs or vice versa. However, as the series approaches its potential end, a showdown between Dom and Hobbs could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation. After all, throughout the Fast and Furious films, audiences have witnessed a recurring pattern of men engaging in physical conflicts before eventually forming unbreakable bonds.

For instance, Fast and Furious sees Dom and Brian’s tumultuous relationship evolve into a deep brotherly connection after a series of knock-down, drag-out fights. This same sort of understanding between Dom and Hobbs would reaffirm the underlying themes of reconciliation and family that have contributed to the franchise’s enduring popularity. By embracing the notion that they are, in a sense, brothers, Dom and Hobbs could mend their on-screen relationship and deliver a broader message of unity. This would ultimately give fans a satisfying conclusion to their relationship in Fast and Furious 11.

Vin Diesel Posts Paul Walker Tribute On 10th Anniversary Of His Death


Vin Diesel shares a touching tribute to Paul Walker 10 years after the actor’s tragic death on November 30, 2013. Diesel expresses that “more smiles manage to break through the tears” as years pass because he knows his bond with Walker will be stronger than ever when they eventually reunite. Walker’s character, Brian O’Connor, remains alive in the world of Fast and Furious, and Diesel has previously teased that the franchise won’t end without a proper farewell to Brian and Walker.

Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel takes to social media to share a touching tribute to Paul Walker, 10 years after the actor’s death. First released in 2001, the debut installment in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise introduces Diesel as Dominic Toretto and Walker as Brian O’Connor. Both characters would return for a number of sequels, but Walker tragically passed away on November 30, 2013, during the production of Furious 7.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Walker’s passing, Diesel has shared a touching tribute post on Instagram to honor his late Fast and Furious costar. Check out the actor’s emotional post below:

Accompanying an image of Walker with one of his daughters, Diesel reminisces about an important lesson learned from the late actor and how his legacy still lives on today. Diesel’s full caption is included below:

I was listening to a song this morning…‘That Lucky Old Sun’… thought of you, racing around Heaven all day. Hahaha…
The family of the Mourning, feels like it has grown since a decade ago… feel’s like that experience of losing someone is far too common today. Leaving more and more of us in search for meaning, trying to make sense of this complex existence…
Oh, I have finally understood what you use to do with the phone, “phone Fasting”… you had the insight to turn off your phone for long stretches of time. I started this year to do just that. You used to say, Vin and I can go years without talking, and our brotherhood will always be stronger than we left it, the ones who truly love you will always be there.
Amen to that.
This is one of my favorite images ever taken… You knew how proud I was when my daughter, the Alpha Angel, your niece would play the piano… well last night she was playing Moonlight Sonata… it took me back to the night before she was born. Me and you were working late… you were telling me that the best moment in life would be witnessing my child being born. That priceless smile you had when I told you the next day that I had cut the umbilical cord…
The next song she started playing on the piano is by an artist you would have loved, named Billie Eilish, ‘What was I made for’… when she started to play, the other angels all came and joined her at the piano and they started singing… wow…emotions… angels, I know you were listening.
After ten years… I know these days of beautiful remembrance will be filled with tears. But as time rolls on, with each year that passes… more smiles manage to break through the tears. Cause I know, when I see you again… our brotherhood will be stronger than we left it.
Miss you.

Will Brian Be Seen Again In Fast & Furious?
Furious 7 Reveals How Paul Walker’s Character Can Return
CGI Paul Walker in Furious 7.

Walker’s death in November 2013 came with a great deal of sadness, but it also created problems for the Furious 7 production, which was about halfway done. It was ultimately decided that Walker’s remaining scenes would be completed with a digital recreation of the actor, with his two brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, serving as body doubles. Although Walker may have passed away, Brian remains alive and well within the world of the films, though he has not been seen in the flesh since Furious 7’s emotional ending.

The closet audiences have come to seeing Brian again (outside of the flashbacks featured in Fast X) is at the end of F9: The Fast Saga, when the character’s iconic Nissan Skyline pulls up at Dom’s house. This summer’s Fast X supposedly sets up the conclusion of the franchise in an 11th and potentially 12th installment (in addition to the announced Dwayne Johnson Luke Hobbs spinoff movie), and it’s very likely that the final movie will see Brian return in some capacity.

Diesel has also essentially teased as much, telling Total Film (via GamesRadar) earlier this year: “I couldn’t imagine this saga ending without truly saying goodbye to Brian O’Conner.” It’s unclear if this will mean a substantial digital recreation of the actor for extended portions of the film or a quick cameo at the very end, but it seems like audiences haven’t seen the last of Brian just yet. Even in death, Walker remains a key pillar of Fast and Furious, and it’s fitting that the final film will feature another heartfelt goodbye to further honor the late actor.

All 4 Fast & Furious Heroes Who Stayed Dead (& Which One Is Most Likely To Return)


Fast & Furious franchise is known for bringing back dead characters, but there are a few heroes who have remained dead. Jack Toretto, Dom’s father, died in a racing accident and his death should not be undone in the franchise. Jesse, a member of Dom’s crew, was killed in a drive-by shooting, while Vince was killed during an ambush. Elena, Dom’s love interest, was killed by the villain Cipher.

The Fast & Furious franchise has brought many characters back from the dead, but a handful of its heroes have remained killed off after their demise. The Fast Saga has taken its characters on a wild ride from street racing to the most outlandish adventures possible. The running theme of the Fast & Furious franchise has long been family, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) building quite a large family indeed over the course of the Fast Saga’s run.

On top of its embrace of ridiculous, superhuman feats as a staple of its action scenes, the Fast & Furious movies are also well known for bringing back seemingly dead characters for more missions. The returns of Sung Kang’s Han in F9 and Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashar in Fast X would be especially noteworthy in emphasizing the notion that no Fast & Furious death is irreversible. However, that is not entirely true, as there have been a few Fast & Furious heroes who have died and never come back.

4 Jack Toretto

Jack Toretto (J.D. Pardo) is the father of Dom, Mia (Jordana Brewster), and Jakob Toretto (John Cena), and is first seen in a flashback to 1989 in F9. Jack is a highly skilled race car driver who instilled that talent in his children, with Dom and Jakob being part of his racing pit crew. However, Jack’s racing career took a tragic turn when his car malfunctioned and crashed, killing him. Dom later beat his father’s racing opponent, Kenny Linder (Jim Parrack), almost to death with a wrench, believing him responsible for his father’s demise.

This tragedy also led to Dom and Jakob falling out, with Dom later coming to believe that Jakob set up their father’s death since he was the last one to work on his car. However, Jack was intentionally attempting to throw the race in order to get his family out of debt. He had asked Jakob to help tinker with his car so that it would fail, with Jack’s death being unintentional on both their parts. While his return has been theorized by fans, of all the characters killed off in Fast & Furious, Jack Toretto’s death should never be retconned.

3 Jesse

One of the early members of Dom’s family in the original The Fast and the Furious, Jesse (Chad Lindberg) was the brains of Dom’s crew in his enterprise of stealing DVD players. Jesse went on the run after losing a street race to Dom’s rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune), having bet his MK3 Volkswagen Jetta in the race. Jesse was later killed outside of Dom’s house when Johnny Tran and his associate Lance Nguyen (Reggie Lee) arrived and performed a drive-by shooting. Dom and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) then chased down Johnny Tran and Lance Nguyen to avenge their fallen friend.

2 Vince

Vince (Matt Schulze) was another member of Dom’s crew in The Fast & the Furious, and he was badly injured during a truck heist in that first movie. After his recovery, Vince fled to Rio de Janeiro where he later reunited with Dom and family in Fast Five. Despite Vince having settled down with a wife and a baby son, he agreed to join Dom’s daring heist of Rio’s most feared crime boss Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida). Unfortunately, Vince was killed during an ambush by Reyes’s team. After successfully pulling off the heist, Dom left Vince’s intended share of the money with his wife and son.

1 Elena

Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) worked alongside Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in apprehending Dom and his crew in Fast Five. She and Dom gradually developed feelings for each other, however, and departed for Spain with Dom at the end of the movie. After Dom learned that his wife Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) was still alive despite her apparent death in Fast & Furious, Dom and Elena had an amicable split, only for it to later be revealed that Elena is the mother of Dom’s son in The Fate of the Furious.

After Elena was killed by the villainous Cipher (Charlize Theron), Dom and Letty raised the boy together, with the two naming him Brian after Brian O’Conner. Meanwhile, Dom later met Elena’s sister Isabel (Daniela Melchior), who joined Dom’s crew in Fast X. While Elena remains deceased as of Fast X, the arrival of her sister Isabel and Fast & Furious’s habit of not truly killing off characters makes her the most likely thought-to-be-dead hero to potentially return as the franchise speeds towards its finale.
