The Bald Icons: Who is Vin Diesel?

You know him as the badass Dom Toretto in the Fast & Furious franchise, but did you know that Vin Diesel’s real name isn’t even Vin Diesel?

Not only that, but most of us also weren’t aware that Mr Diesel is a super successful film producer, a screenwriter and an all round tough guy.

Most of us know him as Dominic Toretto in the Fast & Furious films, but he has been involved in a lot more than that.

Diesel was born on the 18th of July, 1967.

He started his acting career in 1990, and the first big film that he was part of was Saving Private Ryan.

From there on, he rose to stardom in the Fast & Furious films, The XXX series and The Chronicles of Riddick film.

Vin Diesel has a uniquely deep voice, and together with his physical appearance makes the perfect tough guy for any film!

What Movies Has He Starred In?

Diesel’s actual first film appearance occurred in 1990 in a film called Awakenings.

In 1994 he wrote and directed a short film called Multi-Facial which became pretty successful, and led Steven Spielberg to offering him a role in his new film Saving Private Ryan.

Although the 1990s was pretty successful for Vin Diesel, the majority of the public only got to know him when he starred in The Fast & The Furious in 2001, then in XXX in 2002.

How Vin Diesel Became A Bald Icon

Since I can personally remember, we have always seen Vin Diesel on screen with a shaved head.

He immediately fit the bill to play that classical bald, tough guy in every single Hollywood film.

Now Vin isn’t super chiseled like another bald icon, Jason Statham, but instead he is a guy with large muscle mass that just comes across as someone that could definitely kick your ass.

If you think about some of his fight scenes in The Fast & Furious, XXX and more, you can tell he is pretty badass.
