5 Vin Diesel roles you might not know about
Vin Diesel is currently showing his exXxtreme side in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, one of Vin’s most popular characters alongside Dominic Toretto and Riddick.
But straight-talking machos are not all he’s got in his locker. The 49-year-old has also never been afraid to try something a little different.
Vin Diesel will be returning as the voice of Groot in this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but this time in baby form. We can’t wait for baby Diesel!
Yes, Vin Diesel was in Saving Private Ryan! Steven Spielberg’s 1998 Oscar winner was full of current and future stars, with Vin playing Private Carpazo. Spoiler – it didn’t end well for Carpazo.
Did you know that a year before he went all Pitch Black on us, Vin lent his deep voice to kids film The Iron Giant? Now you do.
In 2005, Vin attempted to do what so many other action stars before him had tried and (mostly) failed – he went full on family-friendly. It wasn’t his greatest career decision, but you can’t blame him for trying.
The Last Witch Hunter
It’s well-known that Vin Diesel is a massive fantasy fan (he loves a bit of Dungeons and Dragons every now and then), and so it was only a matter of time before he bearded up and headed off into the world of magic, witches and war craft.
