All in the family: Vin Diesel’s 10-year-old son joins Fast & Furious 9
Young Vincent Sinclair will play a younger version of his dad’s character, Dominic Toretto, in flashback scenes in the upcoming film.
Vin Diesel’s 10-year-old son, Vincent Sinclair, will be making his big screen debut in the upcoming Fast & Furious 9. The young actor will play the younger version of his dad’s character, Dominic Toretto, in flashback scenes.
It’s unclear how much screen time the child actor will get, although it has been reported that he was paid US$1,005 a day.
The ninth installment of the franchise began production in June 2019 in England and was set to be released in theatres last summer. However, the US$200 million blockbuster was pushed back to Jun 25 this year due to COVID-19.
It turns out that another of Diesel’s kids was involved in the show in a behind-the-scenes manner. In 2020, the actor, whose real name is Mark Sinclair, told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that his six-year-old daughter, Pauline, had requested for Cardi B to be in the film. So he made it happen.
The upcoming ninth instalment of the franchise picks up after the events of 2017’s The Fate Of The Furious. This time, Dom Toretto has to face his younger brother, Jakob, who has a personal vendetta against him. Newcomer to the franchise John Cena plays Jakob.
F9, as the film is also called, brings back their star cast which includes Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Helen Mirren.
