In addition to being the highest paid actor in the world, Dwayne Johnson is the most well-known actor in the entire world. He has produced numerous successful films in the past where he did outstanding work, as well as numerous failures where the plots of the films were disliked by the audience.
His most well-known roles came from the Fast and Furious franchise, where he has been in four films and has been working since the fifth movie. The final scene of the film Fast and Furious 9 does not feature Dwayne, and this is the reason why.
Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel are not pals anymore
Due to a significant altercation between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel over the previous few years, it is now fairly universally known that the two are no longer close friends. Dwayne accusing Vin Diesel of controlling his co-stars has led to some contentious statements.
According to Dwayne, Vin used his daughter and the late Paul Walker as a pawn to use and coerce the other person into doing things that they had never intended to do. Johnson claimed that he felt this way towards Vin Diesel and that this made him dislike him.
As a result of his dislike for him, Dwayne Johnson declined to work with him in the most recent Fast and Furious movie and declared that he would never want to work with him again because he is not the type of person Dwayne likes to work and hang out with.
The Fast and Furious franchise then opted to cast the former 16-time WWE World Champion John Cena to work in the film as a villain and as the brother of the main lead Dom Torreto, played by Vin Diesel, in order to add more star power.
