So Dwayne Johnson is furious (LOL!) with one of his ‘Fast 8’ co-stars.

Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 10.05.02 AM

The Fast and Furious franchise is about family, and honor among thieves, and what-not. I mean, it’s really about cars and driving them, but they want us to think it’s about family, so let’s go with that. Unless you’re Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, in which case, it’s about a beef of apparently epic proportions. Apparently, Johnson is FURIOUS(!) with one of his co-stars, and he hopes to wrap the shoot up FAST(!!). We don’t know who exactly, but we’ve got some guesses. To Instagram!

This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part?. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses

This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you’re right. Bottom line is it’ll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that’s embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part?. Final week on FAST 8 and I’ll finish strong.

Today, take joy in the fact that Dwayne Johnson has not called you a candy ass on social media. Well, he probably hasn’t …unless you are Furious co-star and sentient motorcycle peel out Vin Diesel. According to TMZ, Diesel is the source of the Rock’s ire. “The Rock’s rant about unprofessional male co-stars was targeted at Vin Diesel,” TMZ blathered, and “the 2 had a secret meeting on the Fast 8 set Tuesday to hash things out. Production sources tell TMZ … when the Rock went nuts on social media Monday night, claiming certain male co-stars were not stand up guys and too ‘chicken shit’ to confront him … he was referring to Vin.”

Vin! My dude! You can’t just go around making Dwayne Johnson mad. Johnson has friends in “high places and low places.”

This all comes on the heels of a lot of reporting about the shooting of Fast 8 being full of drama for everyone, but “especially” the Rock, and apparently nobody’s happy about an Instagram that made suspects out of just about everyone one of Johnson’s “amazing” female co-stars.

But that’s the thing about family! You gotta love them. Even the candy asses.

New Pod Flow: Scribble & Jam, “Artist Matthew Perryman Jones”

Welcome to Episode IV. This week, Dan spends some time with his favorite singer/songwriter, Matthew Perryman Jones. Matthew and Dan talk about panic attacks, growing up in Atlanta, the way music is informed by pain and suffering and the way music gives freedom.

If you have spent any time watching television in the last decade you have most likely heard one of Mattew’s songs on shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, One Tree Hill and many others. His insightful writing and voice have drawn comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Jeff Buckley, and he is on the short list of songwriters who skillfully weave the deeply philosophical and the vivid utterly human without ever losing sight of either.

To get his new album Cold Answer, (which features the three songs from him you heard on this episode), visit MPJmusic.com.
