You ever see iRobot? Well, you should. It’s Will Smith at his finest. Classic early 2000s action flick. Anyway, in that movie, he drops this line:

Does believing you’re the last sane man on the planet make you crazy? ‘Cause if it does, maybe I am.

Epic, I know. Well, that’s how I feel every time Vin Diesel’s name forces its way into my universe. I cannot stand Vin Diesel. Untalented, old, tough to look at, even harder to listen to, Vin Diesel brings literally nothing to the table. Every Vin Diesel movie ever made would be 13 times better as a movie starring The Rock. His only remaining claim to fame is the absolutely preposterous success of the Fast and Furious franchise. So every year (because it seems like there’s a new Fast every year) Vin Diesel will pop up to make the media rounds and remind us all why we wish it was him instead of Paul Walker.

In an interview with, Vin Diesel told Guilherme Cruz:

“I had created a role for Conor McGregor, and after he lost to Nate Diaz, he had to go to a dark place, he had to go get his manhood back to fight the second time, so he wasn’t able to do this film at the time.”

Honestly, I’m calling bullshit on Diesel’s end. Zero percent chance McGregor would ever sign on to appear in his shit B-movie sequel. The dude is gonna be on Game Of Thrones for christ’s sake, you think he’s going to waste his time with xXx: The Return of Xander Cage? Absolutely not.
