Upcoming projects include "Kojak" and "The Last Witch Hunter," among others.

Diesel starred in 2011's "Fast 5," the fifth installment of the blockbuster "The Fast and the Furious" series, as well as "Fast & Furious." He wore multiple hats on both projects as he reprised his role as Dominic Toretto and produced the films, along with Neal H. Moritz. He also wrote and directed the original short film "Los Bandoleros." The short, which was showcased on the "Fast & Furious" DVD, tells the intriguing backstory of the characters and events leading up to the explosive oil-truck heist in the film.

Another endeavor in Diesel's entrepreneurial rise was the creation of his successful video game company, Tigon Studios, which recently created and produced the multiplatform "Riddick: The Merc Files" as well as 2004's top-selling Xbox game, "The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay."

Diesel previously starred alongside Michelle Yeoh in 20th Century Fox's "Babylon A.D.," for director Mathieu Kassovitz and was also seen in the courtroom drama "Find Me Guilty," directed by renowned filmmaker Sidney Lumet. He will play the title role in "Hannibal the Conqueror" and his One Race Films will produce "Hannibal the Barbarian," a children's animated series based on the stories of Hannibal, for BET network. Diesel's future projects also include Touchstone's "Player's Rule," written by Ron Bass and Jen Smolka, and "The Wheelman" (MTV Films/Paramount Pictures/One Race Films). Diesel's Tigon Studios and Midway Games will collaborate to release the film and video game simultaneously.

In 2005, Diesel starred in his first comedy feature for Disney, "The Pacifier," opposite Faith Ford, Brad Garrett, Lauren Graham and Brittany Snow. In the highly anticipated science-fiction feature "The Chronicles of Riddick," Diesel reprised the title role of Richard B. Riddick. Produced by One Race Films, it was the follow-up to the cult favorite "Pitch Black." Diesel previously starred in the action-thriller "A Man Apart," which he also produced. Topping Diesel's list of credits is his star turn in 2001's "The Fast and the Furious," for which he won an MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Team, along with co-star Paul Walker, and was nominated for Best Male Performance. He starred in the blockbuster "xXx," which he also executive produced. 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. His other credits include roles in "Boiler Room" and "Knockaround Guys," and, he voiced the title character in "The Iron Giant," which won an Annie Award for Best Animated Feature.

Diesel wrote, produced, directed and starred in the independent short "Multi-Facial," which explored the issue of being multiracial in today's society and wrote, produced, directed and starred in the full-length feature "Strays," which was selected to compete at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.
