Vin Diesel says the late Paul Walker played a hand in casting John Cena in Fast & Furious 9.
Diesel says when he met with Cena – who plays Dom Torretto’s long-lost brother – he felt “as though Pablo, Paul Walker, had sent him in.”
He then told director Justin Lin “my gut and my heart feels like this was meant to be.”
