Fast & Furious actor Vin Diesel has revealed that his daughter was the one who suggested that rapper Cardi B be included in the ninth film.
Diesel spoke on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he said that his 4-year-old daughter Pauline (named after his late co-star and longtime friend Paul Walker) told him that Cardi B should be a part of F9: The Fast Saga.
“My daughter wanted a piece of casting to happen, so Cardi B is in it,” Vin told host Jimmy Kimmel. “I said, ‘That’s a great idea’ as she’s listening to ‘I Like It…'”
After disclosing how he shared the idea with the writers, Diesel was asked by Jimmy if there had been other A-list celebrities that asked him to be involved in the upcoming film and the movie star replied:
“Strange enough—20 years ago, you wouldn’t have thought this—but now we do have Oscar winners all asking to be a part of the film. It’s bizarre.”
Diesel also assured the TV host that there were more casting surprises in store for fans.
“I may give away a little too much if I—yeah, because there are some secrets that have to be kept to the vest for the audience because I belong to them.”
