Diesel shares that the decision came about after losing his Fast and Furious co-star and friend, Paul Walker in 2013. The 49-year-old actor explains, “I needed to play a character who let me laugh or smile again.”

Diesel continues, “I needed to do something different so badly because I was just a wreck. If I wasn’t careful I would have ended up retiring.”
