ROMAN PEARCE ON FATE OF THE FURIOUS iF

Pasmag (USA) - - TR. -

some­one were to graph out car mod­i­fi­ca­tion in­ter­est by year, that line would ex­plode like a cer­tain Eclipse with a “Dan­ger to Man­i­fold” warn­ing right around The Fast and the Furious' re­lease date in 2001. The Fast & Furious se­ries was the cat­a­lyst for so many en­thu­si­asts to bring out that la­tent build bug and start mod­i­fy­ing their cars their way. Six­teen years later, and PASMAG is still get­ting the re­sponse “Fast & Furious” when we ask our fea­ture car own­ers what their biggest in­spi­ra­tions were.

Over the span of seven films, we've seen Dom and his ex­tended fam­ily drive and slide al­most ev­ery make and model of ve­hi­cle, in nearly ev­ery coun­try on Earth. Now, in the eighth in­stall­ment, ev­ery­thing seems just peachy. Dom and Letty are on their honey­moon and Brian and Mia are re­tired to the good life, while the rest of the crew are en­joy­ing life with rad cars, pri­vacy, and do­ing things that are non-life-threat­en­ing. While some people might be okay with watch­ing a light­hearted movie like that, F&F fans need some oc­tane, stunts, bul­lets, and ex­plo­sions.

N OR EA mysterious woman named Ci­pher (Char­l­ize Theron) some­how se­duces Dom back into a life of crime that pits him against his old crew and fam­ily, and he can't seem to es­cape. Is it the re­sult of brain­wash­ing, black­mail, or some­thing else en­tirely? We'll have to wait un­til April 14th to re­ally dis­cover what The Fate of the Furious will be (see what I did there?).

In the mean­time, we were able to sit down with Tyrese Gib­son, who plays Roman Pearce, the fasttalk­ing joker of the crew or “dou­ble al­pha/man candy,” de­pend­ing on who you ask, and ask him about him­self and his ex­pe­ri­ences shoot­ing The Fate of the Furious.
