THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK

A native of New York City, VIN DIESEL (Riddick / Producer) has become one of Hollywood's most sought-after film stars. Diesel will next be seen in the highly anticipated science fiction feature, The Chronicles of Riddick, in which he reprises the title role of Richard B. Riddick. Produced by Diesel's company, One Race Productions, the film will be released on June 11th and is the follow-up to Pitch Black.

He was most recently seen in the action-thriller A Man Apart, which he also produced. Topping Diesel's list of credits is his star turn in The Fast and the Furious, for which he won an MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Team (alongside co-star Paul Walker) and was nominated for Best Male Performance. He also starred in the blockbuster XXX, which he executive-produced. In addition, Diesel appeared in Saving Private Ryan, for which he was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the film's ensemble cast. Other credits include roles in Boiler Room, Knockaround Guys and the voice of the title character in The Iron Giant, which won an Annie Award for Best Animated Feature.

Prior to appearing in these well-known features, Diesel wrote, produced, directed and starred in the independent short Multi-Facial, which explored the issue of being multi-racial in today's society. The film follows Diesel, where he is told he is either "too black” or "too white” for the part. Director Steven Spielberg created the role of Private Caparzo specifically for him in Saving Private Ryan after seeing the short. In addition, Diesel also penned, produced, directed and starred in the full-length feature Strays. The drama was selected to compete at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.

Raised in Greenwich Village, 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. After high school, he enrolled at Hunter College, where he majored in English with a concentration on creative writing. It was soon after that he began writing screenplays.

Diesel has recently ventured into the video game industry as well with the formation of Tigon Studios. The first project for the company, entitled The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, features the Richard B. Riddick character and will be released this summer to coincide with the opening of The Chronicles of Riddick. Diesel lent both his name and likeness to the game.

Diesel is currently shooting his first comedy, The Pacifier, opposite Faith Ford, Brad Garrett, Lauren Graham and Brittany Snow. The film follows an undercover agent, who, after failing to protect an important government scientist, learns that the scientist's family is in danger. In an effort to redeem himself, he agrees to take care of the man's children, only to discover that child care is his toughest mission yet. Following The Pacifier, Diesel will produce and play the title role in Hannibal, which tells the story of the Carthaginian general who rode an elephant across the Alps to attack Rome in the 3rd Century B.C.
