#2 – Vin Diesel
has been an action movie superstar for a while now, but he didn’t get his first notable movie role until 1998 when he starred in the epic “Saving Private Ryan.” After appearing as the titular character in “Pitch Black,” Diesel was chosen for the lead role in “The Fast and the Furious,” and its popular sequels are still popping up more than a decade later.
Diesel has also been a part of some comedy/family roles as well, but they haven’t gone as well as his action movie persona (it’s hard to laugh at someone who can crush your head).
Vin and Paul were born in Greenwich Village in 1967; their mother is an astrologer, and their stepfather taught drama. Maybe one day we will get Paul to star in an action movie where he features as Vin’s twin brother, but knowing our luck we’re just going to wind up with another crappy family comedy.
