VIN DIESEL (Dominic Toretto/Produced by) has become one of Hollywood's most sought-after film stars and has also established himself as a prominent producer and filmmaker. Diesel stormed onto the scene in 2001 with the box-office hit The Fast and the Furious, a film that confirmed his status as a bona fide star.

Previously, the native New Yorker starred in the huge box-office success The Pacifier, directed by Adam Shankman and co-starring Faith Ford, Brad Garrett, Lauren Graham and Brittany Snow. Through his production company, One Race Films, Diesel starred in and produced the science-fiction feature The Chronicles of Riddick, reprising the title role in the follow-up to the cult favorite Pitch Black.

Diesel was discovered by Steven Spielberg, who saw him in 1999's Multi-Facial and later cast him 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 and Knockaround Guys, and the voice of the title character in The Iron Giant, which won an Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Animated Theatrical Feature. He was also recently seen in 20th Century Fox's thriller Babylon A.D., for director Mathieu Kassovitz (La Haine), a film that co-starred Michelle Yeoh.

Additional upcoming projects include a reprisal of his role in the long-anticipated sequel to xXx, which pairs him with director Rob Cohen and producer Joe Roth, as well as Hannibal the Conqueror, a film in which Diesel is set to produce and star. Diesel will also star in the Touchstone romantic comedy Player's Rules, as well as Paramount's The Wheelman, with Di Bonaventura Pictures and One Race Films producing. Through Tigon Studios, Diesel's award-winning video game production company, Diesel has broken new ground in interactive entertainment by merging both film and gaming media. It is the only production company devoted to games to be founded by a major motion picture star.

The first game to be produced by Tigon was titled Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay, which Diesel co-designed. The much-anticipated follow-up to this title, Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, will be released in April 2009 in conjunction with Tigon, Universal Studios and Atari. Following on the success of the previous titles, Diesel will also launch an entirely new franchise with The Wheelman, in conjunction with Midway Studios and Ubisoft Entertainment.
