IRON GIANT

VIN DIESEL (The Iron Giant), a New York native, made his stage performing debut at the age of seven and, from that point on, he continued to work in New York theater. Diesel majored in English at Hunter College and soon began writing screenplays. His first film, the short "Multi-Facial" (which he wrote, starred in, directed and produced), screened at Cannes in 1995; his first full-length feature, "Strays" (which he starred in, directed and produced), competed at Sundance in 1997 and led to a deal with MTV to adapt it into a series. Upon viewing "Multi-Facial," Steven Spielberg created the role of Private Carpazo for Diesel in his Oscar-winning "Saving Private Ryan." (Diesel, along with his fellow "Ryan" actors, were nominated for a SAG Award for Best Ensemble.)

The actor/filmmaker is currently developing "Doormen," an original screenplay based on his experiences as a bouncer in New York City, which he plans to direct and star in (with Ted Fields executive producing). He recently completed starring roles in the science-fiction drama "Pitch Black" (directed by David Twohy) and Ben Younger's "The Boiler Room," opposite Ben Affleck and Giovanni Ribisi.
