If you are in a discussion with someone about Vin Diesel, then you must not forget to mention the following two facts about him to blow up others’ minds.
- Paul Giamatti and Vin are both of the same age and were born in 1967. Paul is just 42 days older than Diesel.
- Another one is that Vin Diesel is an enormous nerd in the Hollywood industry. It is even quite shocking for those who are quite familiar to him like the star cast of XXX or Fast and Furious series.
Vin’s taste in films
There is no doubt that Vin is quite cautious while picking up projects. He is and was always into sci-fi or fantasy kind films like either he is driving cars or his involvement in extreme sports. His work experience can easily judge his picking style by far. He has always done movies like Fast and Furious series, XXX, Babylon A.D. Guardians of the Galaxy, Riddick series, and the newly released Bloodshot.
Vin’s area of focus
Being a nerd, Diesel has a different area of focus, like his, is being utterly passionate about Dungeons and Dragons. It is one of the iconic role-playing games which first published in the year 1974. Many stories about him reveal his love for the games. Some of these stories are his Facebook post that features a birthday cake along with an introduction stating – Thirty Years of Adventure: A Celebration of Dungeons and Dragons. His alleged playing of D&D on the sets of The Chronicles of Riddick.
Vin’s response about games in an interview
During an interview with Shawn Adler for UGO.com, many questions came up regarding games, one of which is as follows:
Ques: Is it true that you are quite into Dungeons and Dragons?
To this, Vin’s answer was ultimate; he proved that he is not a D&D fan, just saying that he has never played the game in his life.
However, he expressed his love with the making of The Last Witch Hunter, an action fantasy film based on a D&D character, Kauler, an 800-year-old Witch Hunter. Diesel created the movie in the year 2015. During the publicity rounds for film, he stopped by the Geek and Sundry web series – Critical Role, to play a session in the character of Kauler.
Vin Diesel is not just limited to Dungeons and Dragons but is quite passionate about pursuing Marvel Cinematic Universe projects. He wants to go beyond the voice work, which he did for the Guardians of the Galaxy. However, his passion for games more than just a fun fact about him; it is what makes him Hollywood’s biggest movie stars. His love for games and sci-fi things has influenced his performance to a greater level.
His passion has made him interested in going The Chronicles of Riddick, even though it meant that he could not be part of the second XXX film. He also told that going back to the Dungeons and Dragons was not like creating a film but was like creating a universe. It reflected his love and passion for sci-fi and fantasy types movies.
However, some of his passion made projects failed to create a significant impact on the audience, but still, they worked well on the box-office. As Vin Diesel is a nerd, he understands the power of caring passionately and also about the power of the chances to escape the world!
