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 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.
