And it’s not just any father; it’s the renowned Mexican poet Javier Sicilia, who ignited an international movement for peace after the brutal killing of his 24-year old son.

For fans of the Fast & Furious franchise, the day has finally come: Furious 7 is in thousands of theaters now. Here’s some great behind-the-scenes insights.
L-r: Romeo Santos and Jordana Brewster
The loss of Paul Walker during the filming of this latest installment has unexpectedly transformed Furious 7 into an unexpectedly heartfelt film, especially for Walker’s costars, who clearly and genuinely cared for him. We have a few “insider” soundbites with Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) and Jordana Brewster (Mia). They look back on the fourteen years of the Fast and Furious franchise, their characters, and the family and friendships they have developed over the years. And they hint at what might be next with F&F. There’s also a special moment with heartthrob singer (now actor) Romeo Santos, who has a cameo role as “Mando.” And we finish with an exclusive interview with Vin Diesel by our friend Arlene Gonzalez Santos at My Sangre Latina. He’s asked about Romeo Santos’ character and he gives an interesting answer.
