VIN DIESEL (Xander Cage/Executive Producer) exploded onto theatre screens last summer 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 New Line Cinema's Diablo, directed by F. Gary Gray and produced by Diesel, who stars as an undercover DEA agent.

Following the completion of XXX, Diesel will segue into production on 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.

Prior to Pitch Black, he 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 wa 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 7 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.
