The Rock's Fast & Furious Role Originally Written for Tommy Lee Jones

    One of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's most recognizable movie roles is Agent Luke Hobbs from the Fast & Furious franchise. The role was originally written for someone else, however.
    Producer Vin Diesel said recently that the part was initially written for Oscar-winner Tommy Lee Jones. Diesel shared this news as part of a Facebook livestream. Here is what Diesel said, as reported by Collider:
    "Back in the fifth film, when I was asking, 'Who should I work with?' The reason why we brought Dwayne Johnson into Fast Five was because of you. There was a girl named Jen Kelly who said, 'I would love to see you guys work together on-screen.' And so, we gave a role that was initially written for Tommy Lee Jones but we gave it to Dwayne, and he shined in it."
    It's pretty interesting to imagine Tommy Lee Jones, who won an Oscar for 1993's The Fugitive, playing the role of Hobbs. We'll see Hobbs next in 2017's Fast 8, which recently wrapped up shooting. Among the newcomers for the film is Mad Max: Fury Road's Charlize Theron, who plays the main villain.
    Fast 8 is directed by The Italian Job and Straight Outta Compton's F. Gary Gray,
