Who Is Vin Diesel?

Mark Sinclair, known professionally as Vin Diesel, is an American actor and filmmaker. Playing Dominic Toretto in the Fast & Furious franchise he is one of the world’s highest-grossing actors.

Diesel started his career in 1990 but struggled to gain roles until he wrote, directed, produced, and starred in the short film Multi-Facial (1995). This attracted the attention of Steven Spielberg, who was developing Saving Private Ryan (1998). He re-wrote elements of the film to allow Diesel to appear in a supporting role. Diesel subsequently voiced the titular character in The Iron Giant (1999) while gaining a reputation as an action star after headlining the Fast & Furious, XXX, and The Chronicles of Riddick film franchises.

Diesel voices Groot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). He also voiced the character in Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018). Diesel has also earned commercial success in other genres, such as in the comedy The Pacifier (2005). While his performance in Find Me Guilty (2006) was praised. Diesel portrayed the magazine superhero Bloodshot in its 2020 film adaptation and is slated to appear within the Avatar sequels.

Diesel founded the production company One Race Films, where he has also served as a producer or executive producer for his star vehicles. Diesel also founded the record label Racetrack Records and computer game developer Tigon Studios, providing his voice and motion capture for all of Tigon’s releases.

Diesel made his stage debut when he appeared within the children’s play Dinosaur Door, written by Barbara Garson. His involvement in the play came about when he, his brother, and some friends had broken into the Theater for the New City space on Jane Street to vandalize it. They were caught by the theater’s artistic director, Crystal Field who offered them roles in the upcoming show instead of calling the police. Diesel remained involved with the theater throughout adolescence, going on to attend NYC’s Hunter College, where studies of creative writing led him to begin screenwriting.
