Vin Diesel vs The Rock Fight Fast & Furious


Mark Sinclair (born July 18, 1967), known professionally as

Vin Diesel, is an American actor and filmmaker.

He is best known for playing

Dominic Toretto in the Fast &

Furious franchise, and is one of the highest-grossing actors of all time.

Diesel began his career in 1990 but struggled to gain roles until he wrote,

directed, produced, scored, and starred in the short film Multi-Facial (1995).

This attracted the attention of Steven Spielberg, who was developing Saving Private Ryan (1998);

Spielberg re-wrote elements of the film to allow Diesel to appear.

Diesel subsequently voiced the titular character in

The Iron Giant (1999) while gaining a reputation as an action star after headlining the Fast &

Furious, XXX, and

The Chronicles of

Riddick film franchises.
