Fast & Furious Movie Cast & Characters:

  • Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto: A professional street racer, criminal, and fugitive.
  • Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner: An FBI agent and former LAPD police officer who previously aided Dom in avoiding law enforcement, and was in a relationship with Mia Toretto, which later got patched up again.
  • Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz: Dominic’s girlfriend, who dies in an automobile explosion caused by Fenix Calderon.
  • Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto: Dominic’s sister and Brian’s ex-girlfriend, but the relationship was later patched up again.
  • John Ortiz as Arturo Braga / Ramon Campos: A Mexican drug lord who recruits street racers to smuggle heroin across the Mexico–U.S. border.
  • Gal Gadot as Gisele Yashar: A liaison for Braga who shows a romantic interest in Dom.
  • Laz Alonso as Fenix Calderon: Braga’s right-hand man.


Heading back to the streets where it all began, two men rejoin two women to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars across Los Angeles and floor through the Mexican desert. When a crime brings them back to L.A., fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Connor. But as they are forced to confront a shared enemy, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmaneuver him. And from convoy heists to precision tunnel crawls across international lines, two men will find the best way to get revenge: push the limits of what’s possible behind the wheel.—Universal Studios

About Fast & Furious Movie:

Fast & Furious is the direct sequel to The Fast and the Furious and 2 Fast 2 Furious as well as the fourth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise.

After the positive reception from audiences to Vin Diesel’s cameo in Tokyo Drift, Universal was confident in effectively rebooting the series with its original stars.

A fourth film was announced in July 2007, with the returns of Diesel, Walker, Rodriguez, and Brewster confirmed shortly thereafter.

To account for the cast seeing absences from either of the previous third installments, the film was developed to place The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) as occurring beyond the events of Fast & Furious, while the short film Los Bandoleros (2009) was produced and released.

Principal photography began in February 2008 and concluded that July, with filming locations including Los Angeles and the Dominican Republic.

Lin, Morgan, and composer Brian Tyler returned in their roles from Tokyo Drift. Fast & Furious is the first film to feature D-BOX motion.

It was also the first film in the franchise to be produced by Diesel.

Fast & Furious premiered at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles on March 12, 2009, and was released in the United States on April 3, 2023, by Universal Pictures. The film received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for reuniting the original cast and the action sequences, but criticism for its screenplay. It grossed over $360 million worldwide, exceeding expectations to become the then-highest-grossing film in the franchise. It also grossed $72.5 million worldwide during its opening weekend, which made it the highest-grossing worldwide spring weekend opening of all time, until the release of Alice in Wonderland (2010). It was followed by Fast Five in 2011.
