Action Star: Vin Diesel

2011 CinemaCon Honors

Who knew “The Fast & the Furious” had such great legs?

Or in this case wheels?

Vin Diesel returns to star alongside Paul Walker in “Fast Five,” the fifth installment of the franchise that first burned rubber in 2001 and made Diesel a global icon.

For the gravel voiced actor, who also produced “Fast Five,” this marks his fourth round as Dom Toretto, first introduced as the criminal chief of a racing ring busted by Walker’s undercover cop. Diesel skipped the “2 Fast 2 Furious” first sequel, cameo’d in the third, “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” and returned to star in 2009’s “Fast & Furious” and “Fast Five.”
