KNOCKAROUND GUYS

VIN DIESEL most recently starred as secret agent Xander Cage in the hit Summer action film XXX (for which he also served as executive producer).

Previously, Diesel exploded onto theatre screens in Universal's hit film The Fast and the Furious, directed by Rob Cohen. For his role, Diesel was honored with the 2002 MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Team with Paul Walker and nominated for Best Male Performance. His next release will be an as yet untitled film for New Line Cinema, directed by F. Gary Gray and produced by Diesel, who stars as an undercover DEA agent. The film is scheduled for release in March 2003.

Diesel will next star in The Chronicles of Riddick for Universal, in which he'll reprise the role he created in the science fiction hit Pitch Black. Diesel's One Race Productions will also produce. He will follow that in 2003 with Hannibal, starring as the third century B.C. Carthaginian general. The film will be produced by Revolution Films and One Race Productions.

Prior to Pitch Black, Diesel gave a standout performance in Boiler Room, and was the voice of the title character in the Warner Bros. animated feature The Iron Giant, which won an Annie Award for Best Animated Feature.

Steven Spielberg noticed Diesel's early work and created the role of Private Carpazo for him in Saving Private Ryan, opposite Tom Hanks. Diesel was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the film's ensemble cast.

In the early 1990s, Diesel wrote, produced, directed and starred in his first film, a short, Multifacial, which was screened at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival. He then wrote his first full-length feature, Strays, in which he also was the star, director and producer. This raw urban drama was selected to be in competition at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.

A native to New York City, Diesel gave his first stage performance at the age of seven at Theatre for the New City in Greenwich Village and continued to work in theatre throughout his childhood.

Diesel majored in English at Hunter College with a concentration on creative writing and soon thereafter began writing screenplays.
