When asked about the turning down the role Olyphant said, "I just thought, well, this will just be stupid, and I thought no one is gonna wanna see this movie eight or nine different times. I mean, by the third or fourth sequel, people are gonna definitely get bored of it. Right?"
The Fast and Furious franchise has grossed over $5 billion globally to date. It has also made Vin Diesel a very wealthy international superstar. But when Olyphant was asked if he regrets turning down the role, he said, "No. It's not my thing."
Considering Olyphant is a successfully television star and heir to the wealthy Vanderbilt family, it makes it more believable that he doesn't have regrets.
