22. Lance Nguyen (Reggie Lee)

In The Fast and the Furious, speed racer Johnny Tran (played by Rick Yune) travels around with his cousin and pseudo-bodyguard, Lance. Lance is... a crazy person. He's completely unstable, and not just because he thinks snakeskin pants are a good look.

Race through for our exclusive ranking of the franchise's fastest and most furious guys...

21. Vince (Matt Schulze)

Vince. The original The Fast and the Furious franchise hot head. There's nothing like trying to impress/fighting over a girl like Mia to bring out the worst in a man. Good thing Vince is able to validate himself later on.

20. Sergeant Tanner (Ted Levine)

Sgt. Tanner refuses to give Brian O'Conner (played by Paul Walker) any slack. To his credit, Brian is up to something in The Fast and the Furious. But that doesn't mean he has to squash the fun all the time. Chill out, Sergeant!

19. Zizi (Michael Irby)

Stubborn and trigger happy, double-teaming Zizi comes to the rescue of Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) with Mia and Brian in Fast 5, but only because he was sent by crime lord Hernan Reyes. Dom smells that somethings up with Zizi pretty quickly, but not quick enough to keep he and Brian from being captured and taken to meet Reyes himself.

18. Stasiak (Shea Wingham)

What's not to like about Brian O'Conner? If you have an answer for this, Stasiak is probably your homie. He's always ready to give O'Conner a hard time and that makes him an angry man.

17. Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida)

As a crime lord, it's important to stay cool and collected while also keeping a heavy hand. Reyes walks this fine line pretty well, keeping him relatively centered on this scale. Losing all of his money at the end of Fast 5 probably would have made him furious, had he lived to the end of the movie.

16. Johnny Tran (Rick Yune)

Johnny Tran is really quick on his motorcycle, pushing him closer to the Fastest end of this list. However, the SWAT team's ascension on his entire family and the disappointment of his father flipped him to furious faster than you can say checkered flag.

15. Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson)

All the way back in 2 Fast 2 Furious, we learned that Roman is nothing but attitude with a healthy scoop of driving skills. He keeps the crew on their toes and will go off at a moments notice about just about anything. The man knows what he likes. Can he really be faulted for that?

14. Edwin (Ja Rule)

Edwin was fast, but not quite fast enough to get the goods. That fact made him an angry man full of regret. Never forget: "NOOOOO! MONICA!"

13. Rico Santos (Don Omar)

An old friend of Dom's, Rico works with Tego Leo coordinating heists. Rico and Tego tend to get on each others nerves. A lot. The duo is like an old married couple covered in oil stains.

12. Tego Leo (Tego Calderon)

Tego and Rico go back and forth, but Tego gets a higher spot on this list due to his driving skills. He can whip the ride around like a pro to hijack just about anything for boss man Dominic.

12 of 22 Universal/Photofest

11. Twinkie (Shad "Bow Wow" Moss")

Twinkie doesn't race, but he's a quick mechanic. He's also a good friend to Sean Boswell (played by Lucas Black) in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, leading him into the world of drifting. Is he furious? Not really. Which lands him snug in the middle of this scale.

13 of 22 Scott Garfield/Universal

10. Tej Parker (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges)

Tej was fast back in the day, but doesn't race anymore. That pulls him higher on the "furious" side of things. He's not really the angry type, but he is furiously collecting money from the races he coordinates near his Miami garage.

9. Fenix Calderon (Laz Alonso)

Fenix was featured in Fast & Furious as Letty's murderer. That makes him a furious killer. But, he sort of failed at that, as Letty turns up alive and well in Furious 6. He shows his speed skills again when he t-bones Brian in Furious 6, but once again he falls short when Dominic hits him while he's out on the street. So close, yet so far, Fenix.

15 of 22 Scott Garfield/Universal

8. Lucas "Luke" Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson)

Bounty hunters need to be furious just to get the job done. They also need skillfully speedy. That's why Hobbs falls near the center of this Furious to Fast scale, a perfect balance of both characteristics.

16 of 22 Universal/Photofest

7. Sean Boswell (Lucas Black)

Sean is fast. Like, really fast. Especially after Han helps him hone his skills in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. But he has a bit of a temper. That's how he was "exiled" to Tokyo to live with his dad in the first place. Though he may have calmed down, there's still the capacity to go off. The fact that he went against his father's wishes and started messing with cars again is just another example of his issue with authority.

6. Jesse Petty (Chad Lindberg)

Jesse seems like he'd never hurt a fly, plus he's a pretty good driver. But he's a bit overzealous when racing for papers. When he loses his dad's car, his furious-o-meter goes through the roof.

18 of 22 Scott Garfield/Universal

5. Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel)

You would think Dom would have appeared much higher on this list, right? Because he can get mad enough to black out and murder a man (allegedly). (OK, we know he did it, right?). But his driving abilities push him closer to the Fastest finish line. The man can drive like his life depends on it. Because most of the time it does.

19 of 22 Universal/Photofest

4. Takashi (Brian Tee)

At first, Takashi is furious that Sean is chatting up his girl in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. But he calms a bit when he wins a race that resulted in Sean demolishing Han Lue's ride. Whoops.

20 of 22 Universal Pictures/Photofest

3. Owen Shaw (Luke Evans)

A discharged special ops officer, Owen was trained enough to outsmart the CIA, FBI, DEA and just about everyone else. He was even quick and smooth enough to convince Letty to work for him once she woke up without a memory. If Owen is any indication, we're guessing his bro Deckard - who will appear in Furious 7- will be pretty furious, but perhaps a bit faster than Owen.

21 of 22 Universal/Photofest

2. Han Lue or Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang)

Han is a key part of Dominic's crew, so he's a quick one. He also teaches Sean how to drift like a pro. And even though his driving days are done, he hit his share of finish lines with a quickness.

22 of 22 Scott Garfield

1. Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker)

Brian O'Conner is fast enough to blur the lines between cop and criminal in The Fast and the Furious, and continues to stay ahead of the competition in every Fast film he's featured in. He has rescued Dom and even saved his life (more than once), and ensures the safety of everyone in the crew. He's fearless, yet he stays cool-headed through it all. You can count on one hand the number of times he was stern or had to raise his voice. That makes him the least furious but definitely the fastest. Overall: the best.
