Fangirl Friday – Vin Diesel

12 Apr

Object of my obsession:  Mark Sinclair Vincent – July 18, 1967
My favorite appearances: XXX (Xander Cage), Pitch Black/Chronicles of Riddick (Richard B. Riddick)

I’ll be the first to admit that I generally don’t watch Vin Diesel in movies for his great acting ability   Much like my beloved Jason Statham, a lot of Diesel’s acting is just imprinting his personality on a script.  And when you personality is a tough guy who on the other doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously that’s not a bad thing.  First movie I saw him in was XXX.  That movie had a great soundtrack, cool stunts and *sigh* did you see his arms?  I also like that even though he was playing the bad boy he had a brain, a combination of streets smarts and a bit of good of common sense.

I am so looking forward to Riddick and XXX-3:The Return of Xander Cage.  But first I need to fix a mistake in my Vin Diesel fangirling.  I have never seen The Fast and the Furious *hangs head in  shame*.  I mean this movie has fast cars and Vin, not to mention the lovely Michelle Rodriguez (that’s another Fangirl post altogether), what was I thinking???

I will end with one of my favorite little clips from XXX.  Its short but I think summarizes Vin Diesel’s acting personally pretty well.
