You always say never turn your back on family. But you turned your back on me. Now your little family is in my world.
~ Jakob to Dominic
I spent my entire life in your shadow. And now, you spend the rest of yours living in mine.
~ Jakob to Dominic

Jakob Toretto is a supporting major antagonist in the Fast and Furious franchise, serving as a mentioned character in The Fast and the Furious and the central antagonist of F9, the ninth movie of the Fast & Furious Saga.

He is the middle child and son of Jack Toretto, and the brother of Dominic and Mia. After Dom learned of what caused their father's death, he exiled, who became embittered towards his brother. For 28 years, Jakob pushed himself to be faster, smarter, and stronger than Dom, and became a master thief, assassin, and high-performance driver. Though he originally worked for Mr. Nobody, he would go rogue with Otto to steal Project Aries, and battled his brother to get revenge. Jakob eventually shared the truth about their father's death and was accepted back into his family.

He is portrayed by John Cena as Finn Cole played the character young. Cena also played John Triton in The Marine, Danny Fisher in 12 Rounds and Agent Burns in Bumblebee, and also voiced J.C. in Surf's Up 2, his WWE character in Scooby-Doo!

Biography

Early Life

Jakob Toretto was born around the late 1970s to Jack Toretto and an unnamed mother and was the younger brother to Dominic and the older brother to Mia. In 1989, Jack was in a race against Kenny Linder, but he died after his car collided with Kenny's car and hit a wall. The Toretto family mourned the loss of Jack, and when Kenny attempted to pay his respects, Jakob ordered him to leave. When Kenny insulted Jakob, Dom arrived and nearly killed Linder with a socket wrench, and was taken to jail.

Exile

While Dom was in prison, Jakob became a famous street racer after winning many races but was challenged by his older brother after the latter learned the truth of Jack's death. Dom challenged him that if he won the race, Jakob would have to leave Los Angeles for good, and Dom won the race. Upon his loss, Jakob left town but kept in touch with Mia for some time. Jakob would become bitter towards his older brother due to his exile, and focused for decades on making himself faster, smarter, and stronger than Dom. Toretto would become a master thief, assassin, and a high-performance driver, and would eventually start working for the enigmatic Mr. Nobody. Before the events of the film, Jakob was convinced by his colleague Otto to betray Mr. Nobody to steal Project Aries.

F9: The Fast Saga

After devising a plan to steal Project Aries and use it to launch a satellite to take control of the world's computer systems, Jakob and Otto's agents attack a plane belonging to Jakob's former employer, Mr. Nobody, that is carrying Mr. Nobody himself and Cipher who has been apprehended by the pair. In addition to that, Mr. Nobody is carrying Project Aries with him.

Jakob and Otto extract Cipher from the plane but are unsuccessfully in obtaining Project Aries as Mr. Nobody divided it in two. The plane crashed somewhere in Montequinto, Central America, leaving Mr. Nobody's fate unknown. Mr. Nobody is able to send out an SOS message which was intercepted by Ramsey, who delivers the news to Dom and Letty Ortiz with Tej Parker and Roman Pearce.

Jakob and Otto take Cipher to their Base of Operations and lock her in a glass cage to keep her from interfering with their plan.

Dominic Toretto's Crew travels to the crash site and is able to find the first half of the device however Jakob and his private army attack the team. Dom and the team escape with Project Aries however Jakob is able to steal it from Letty resulting in a chase between Dom and Jakob and the rest of the team. In addition to that, the area is guarded by mercenaries who chase after Dom and Jakob through a field of landmines which they narrowly avoid. Jakob drives his Ford Mustang off a cliff where it is caught by a jet with a large magnet mounted to it, allowing Jakob to escape with the first half of Project Aries.

Jakob returns to his Base of Operations where he meets up with Otto, who is funding the operation. He talks with Cipher who tries swaying Jakob into working with her instead however Jakob declines, citing that he doesn't work for the competition. Cipher and Jakob discuss Jakob's relationship with Dom and she asks Jakob whether he could kill Dom. She then lets him know the location of the other half of Project Aries, Edinburgh and lets him know that now that Dom is involved, he has no chance of making it out of this situation alive.

Jakob and Otto attend a party at Hatfield House which is hosted by Otto's wealthy family and Dom shows up with help from Magdalene Shaw, coming face-to-face with Jakob for the first time in over 20 years. Otto issues Dom a warning by informing him of how powerful his family is. Dom and Jakob nearly come to blows after Jakob makes Dom the same offer Dom made him in 1991, telling him to get as far away from his world as possible. Otto arrives with Interpol Agents and has Dom apprehended, and Dom is able to get a gun that has Jakob's biometrics imprinted into it so he'll be easier to track.

Jakob travels to Edinburgh to recover the second half of Project Aries. Using an electromagnetic field emitted from a large magnet in the back of a truck, Jakob is able to disrupt security systems and steal the second half. Ramsey, Tej, and Roman steal the truck and chase after Otto in his Jaguar XE SV Project 8whilst Jakob zippiness from building to building but is intercepted by Dom.

Dom throws Jakob into a building and the two fight. The fight continues onto the streets of Edinburgh and on top of buses and trucks. Ramsey throws Otto off the road and Dom tackles Jakob onto the truck driven by Ramsey, and Jakob evades Dom and steals a Toyota 86, and tries to escape. Ramsey, Dom, Tej, and Roman chase after him, and Ramsey activates the magnet, apprehending Jakob.

The team keeps Jakob captive in a cell in their safe house and Jakob listens to Han's story about how he survived his attack. Otto infiltrates the safe house with his army and frees Jakob and Jakob reveals that he was the rogue agent who betrayed Mr. Nobody. Dom tells Jakob that he doesn't deserve to have the Toretto name and Jakob gets angry and reveals what really happened to their father when he died. He reveals that he tampered with the race car because their father told him to, as part of a plan that went horribly wrong. Their father was going to throw the race, as he was in serious debt he could help give his children a better life. Jakob never told the truth because Jack told him to not say anything of it and Jakob promised their father he wouldn't. Jakob and Otto kidnap Elle, the key to activating Project Aries and take the second half of Project Aries.

While Otto launches a satellite into Orbit, Jakob has Elle activate Project Aries and they hold her hostage in an armored 16-wheeler whilst driving through the streets of London waiting for the satellite uplink to upload.

The truck is intercepted by Dom and his team, minus Tej and Roman who have traveled to outer space to destroy the satellite, and Jakob is double-crossed by Otto who reveals he is now working with Cipher. Jakob realized that Cipher and Otto were his true enemies all along. Jakob fights Otto's right-hand man, Sue, and is thrown off the truck but he is saved by Dom and Mia. Jakob uses Han's Toyota Supra to escape. However, touched by his siblings’ compassion, he redeems himself by returning to help Dom and Ramsey gain access to the Armadillo after he overhears them struggling to penetrate or stop it. After Otto is killed by Cipher, who is flying a jet to attack the team, Dom ricochets the truck into her jet and blows it up, bringing the battle to an end (though a defeated Cipher escapes once more since she piloted the jet in a simulator back at Otto's base). Jakob arrives in Dom's Dodge Charger and gives the keys back to Dom. Dom tells Jakob that he was once given a second chance when Brian O'Conner gave him the keys to his Supra and so Dom gives Jakob the keys to his Charger, finally forgiving him for his role in their father's death. Mia promises to keep in touch with Jakob and he leaves in the Charger to go into hiding from his enemies.

Quotes

Trivia

  • There were many actors considered for the role before John Cena was selected, such as Bradley Cooper, Jeff Goldblum, and James Marsden.
  • Although Jakob makes his first appearance in Fast & Furious 9, it has been previously implied that Mia Toretto spoke of of his existence, as in Fast & Furious, Mia asked Dominic "How do you say goodbye to your only brother?”
