Some may remember Gloria Grahame adorably performing this number in the movie Oklahoma.
When she appeared with Seth Meyers in April, 2015, Dame Helen Mirren irresistibly declared her love for Vin Diesel and her strong desire to be in a Fast & Furious movie.
Vin received her message and has responded because… you know … when The Queen of Broadway expresses a strong desire, it behooves you to reply.

OK, there’s been enough back and forth about Dame Helen Mirren wanting to join “Furious 8” – let’s get those contracts signed already!
A few months back, the Oscar winner said she’s dying to star in the hit franchise, and Vin Diesel said he’s ready to welcome Helen into the “Furious” family.
“I love Helen Mirren. Get your act together, Helen!” he told Access Hollywood at the opening of the “Fast & Furious – Supercharged” ride at Universal Studios on Tuesday, echoing an interview Helen gave in March in which she told Vin to get his act together and find her a role. “I love you!”
On April 12, 2015, Hillary Clinton declared that she wants to be the champion for Americans and American families.
As much as I love Vin Diesel myself, I must admit that I have not watched a Fast & Furious movie but look forward to Dame Helen demonstrating her outstanding driving and sharp-shooting skills in the next one.
I also look forward to seeing Hillary Clinton tackle the issues she has been laying out on the campaign trail.
When you have two such accomplished women asking you to hire them to do the job they can do best, how can you say “no?”
I can’t! I can’t say no!
I hope you can’t either. We can’t vote for Helen to be in Fast & Furious, but we can help Hillary become the champion for all of us that we know she can be in the White House.
By the way, Helen is on her side, and Hillary had a rare chance in her busy schedule to see Helen perform in the limited engagement of The Audience on Broadway. That will be but a fond memory in a few days. There isn’t a single ticket left.
When Independence Day arrives, I am going to be missing our Broadway Queen of Hearts most heartily. No one can do that role like Dame Helen, and she has said that she will never play that part again.
I really need to get on the stick, though, because Chelsea Clinton says Fast & Furious movies are great! Like Hillary, I trust her judgment.
