The Rock has been very busy in the kitchen since August, preparing you a sumptuous meal of stewed beef with candied asses. Can you smell it, from where you are? As you might recall, Dwayne Johnson took his colorful complaints about an unnamed Fast 8 co-star to Instagram back in August. While you might have hoped and prayed the offending actor was Scott Eastwood, inexplicably the "candy asses" in question were none other than Vin Diesel. It seemed odd to watch an A-list star call out a long-time colleague, but the Rock has no beefin' regrets. “I was very clear with what I said. I’ve been in the game a long time,” he told the Los Angeles Times about the feud. “Would Universal [Pictures] have preferred that didn’t happen? Sure, we talked about it. The irony is after that and as they do their tracking and all their analysis, the interest shot through the roof to a whole other level.” Sounds like Furious 9 through Fast & Furious 22 are going to be an extremely tense experience for everyone involved.
