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.
