Vin Diesel Career
Mark first appeared on stage at the age of 7 after a curious case. Together with several other boys, he decided to sneak into one of the local theaters to play with the props. At that moment, the actors were rehearsing a performance on stage. The guys were noticed by the production director and, as punishment, forced to act out some lines. Oddly enough, Mark did the best among them, so it was he who got a tempting offer from the director – $20 for each performance.
Soon enough his first performance in the children’s play ‘Dinosaur Door’ took place. Vin’s performance was so brilliant that from that moment on, he decided to become an actor. Up to the age of 17, Vin performed on the theater stage, improving his skills.
The future actor began to play sports and regularly work out. After a few years, the guy turned into a real jock with visible muscles. After graduating high school, he decided that the theater wouldn’t bring him a lot of money. So being a rather large and jacked-up guy, Vin got a job as a bouncer at the nightclub Tunnel in Manhattan. That’s when he came up with the alias Vin Diesel and started shaving his head bald.
At the same time, Vin Diesel entered Hunter College, where he studied English and Classical Literature, and in his spare time, he tried to write scripts.
In 1987, he dropped out of college, left his annoying job at the club, and moved from his home in New York to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a movie star. However, Hollywood did not accept him with open arms, and he had to get a job as a salesman in a tech store.
During his first year, Vin Diesel proved himself well and managed to earn good money. At the same time, he worked hard for 18 hours a day. But the actor knew that a salesman and a movie star aren’t quite the same thing. Vin Diesel’s film debut took place in 1990, in Penny Marshall’s film ‘Awakenings’. However, the role was so insignificant that he didn’t even appear in the credits.
Seeing her son struggling, his mother tried to cheer him up and gave him a book by Rick Schmidt Feature Filmmaking at Used-Car Prices, hinting that he can take his career into his own hands. Inspired by the book, Diesel took up writing his own scripts.
In 1994, the actor made a short film “Multi-Facial“, in which he took the main role himself, and even wrote music for it himself. He spent only $3,000 to produce a 20-minute film. The picture was awarded a screening at Cannes, although it did not receive significant awards. Nevertheless, it was his first success.
After that, Vin Diesel returned to Los Angeles, where he resumed working as a tech salesman and saving money. He was going to use them to make the movie Strays. After 8 months of hard work, the actor started filming the movie where he played the main role.
The young actor was noticed by the famous director Steven Spielberg, who offered him a role in his film ‘Saving Private Ryan’ with Tom Hanks and Matt Damon. It was Diesel’s first work in a big movie, which brought him popularity and $100,000. Later, this film received 5 Oscars, and Diesel himself, along with his colleagues on the set, was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild of America Award in the category of Best Ensemble.
In 1999, Vin voiced the main character in the cartoon ‘The Iron Giant’, and also starred in the film ‘Pitch Black’, where he played the main role of the criminal Riddick. This film brought the actor his long-awaited fame.
In the early 2000s, viewers could see Vin Diesel in such films as ‘Boiler Room’, ‘Into Pitch Black’ and ‘Knockaround Guys’. In the last one, he played the role of Taylor Reese, a friend of the son of an influential mafia boss in Brooklyn.
2001 was one of the most successful years in the actor’s life. After playing one of the main roles together with Paul Walker in the crime thriller, ‘The Fast and the Furious’ by Rob Cohen, Vin Diesel became the public’s favorite. The character Dominic Toretto became his best role according to the audience. The actor’s payout for this film was $2 million.
The acting duo received a high award – the MTV Movie Award. But, nevertheless, Diesel did not participate in the next film ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’, because could not agree with the producers on the fee amount. The actor requested more than $20 million for the film.
The following year, the audience watched the adventure thriller XXX with Vin Diesel, in which he performed most of the stunts himself, without using stuntmen. The actor admitted later, he had never ridden motorcycles before. During the three-month preparation for filming, he was coached by bikers who were among the best motocross athletes in the world.
In 2003, the action movie ‘A Man Apart’ was released, in which Diesel played the main role, and also acted as an executive producer. The film brought him $2.5 million.
The next film in which the actor starred was an installment from the series ‘The Chronicles of Riddick’. Vin Diesel’s fee was $11.5 million. Despite the fact that the film didn’t gather as much at the box office. And the actor received a Golden Raspberry nomination for the Worst Male Role in 2005 for that movie.
An animated film and a computer game were soon created based on this film, and Diesel voiced his character in them. At the same time, Vin Diesel starred in the comedy family thriller ‘The Pacifier’. On the set, he had to collaborate with 5 child actors at once, and he did it flawlessly.
The actor was invited to take part in the filming of one of the following films: The Hitman Thriller or the fantasy action movie Babylon AD. By choosing the latter option, Diesel miscalculated – the film never recouped its budget, which amounted to a grandiose sum of 70 million US dollars. Even the director himself later admitted that this film “in general is not worth watching.”
In 2009, Diesel worked on the 4th part of Fast and Furious as an actor and producer. In the first movie, Walker and Diesel were allowed to perform many stunts, since both were not considered celebrities at that time. But by the fourth movie, the actors became well-known, the stunts became more difficult, and the studio forbade Walker and Diesel to risk their lives.
Diesel’s new comedic role was well-received by the audience, who were used to seeing him only in action movies, and as such, the actor starred in the film ‘Find Me Guilty’ in 2006. His image of Jackie Dinorcio was unusual for the viewers. Diesel gained 30 pounds and spent two hours a day in the makeup chair.
Soon the third part of Fast and Furious was released – The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, but fans were upset to see Vin Diesel’s character only in an episode at the very end.
In 2011 the 5th part of Fast and Furious came out and brought $15 million to the actor. In 2013, Vin Diesel starred in the thriller Riddick. The production of the film was in jeopardy when there was a delay in financing. As a result, Vin Diesel took over the financing of the film until the problem with the bank loan was resolved.
In the same year, he voiced the main character in the animated film Riddick: Blindsided, and also starred in Fast and Furious 6, and Dwayne Johnson joined their team.
At that time, filming of Furious 7 began, but in November the filming stopped due to the death of Paul Walker and was resumed later — in the spring of 2014.
During this period, such films as ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ were released, in the latter Vin Diesel played the role of Groot. The actor participated in motion capture for the character and also voiced him in several languages, including Russian. In 2015, the long-awaited film Furious 7 was also released, which brought the actor a huge payout of $ 47 million.
In 2016, Diesel earned $35 million and became the seventh highest-paid actor of the year. The eighth part of Fast and Furious, which premiered in 2017, became famous among fans because of the conflict that broke out a week before the end of filming between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel.
In 2017, Diesel earned $ 54.3 million, which made him the third highest-paid actor of the year, and in the Forbes magazine rating, Vin Diesel took first place among actors whose films became the highest-grossing.
The total income of his movies, in which he played the main role, amounted to $1.6 billion. Most of this amount falls on The Fate of the Furious — the box office of the film totals $1.2 billion.
In 2018, the actor again voiced his character Groot in the films Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers: Endgame, as well as in the animated film Ralph Breaks the Internet. In 2020, Diesel starred in the action movie Bloodshot, and a year later – F9 was released, and John Cena also joined the cast.
In December 2022, Avatar 2, a fantasy action movie, is released, in which Vin Diesel plays the main role. His successful film career has made the actor one of the highest paid in Hollywood.
