The first official photo from Fast Five has come online, courtesy of USA Today, and features Vin Diesel and a similarly bald-headed Dwayne Johnson staring each other down. Diesel and Johnson apparently look so much alike that the hair and makeup department of the Fast and Furious sequel had to give Johnson a goatee to be able to distinguish between the two. Does this mean Johnson will be playing Diesel's evil twin?
As unlikely as that is, the article that featured the photo described Johnson's character, Hobbs, as “a cop on the trail of street racers Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson and the familiar crew of the Furious franchise,” and that he cruises around in “a 10-ton armored military vehicle that looks like a Humvee on steroids.” So, let's not rule out the doppelganger thing yet, he is on the opposite side of the law and doesn't drive a muscle car.
Whatever kind of character Hobbs actually is, check him out in the photo below, and see more Fast Five pictures in the gallery! Click the thumbnail to view larger, and be on the lookout for Fast Five in theaters on April 29, 2011.
