Most Amazing Things You Didn't Know About Vin Diesel.

This is my another story on Vin Diesel for his fans. In my last story, I tried to show you using pics that "He is the sexiest human being ever walked on earth". I hope you like this story as well.

His real name is Mark Sinclair Vincent, he changed his name to Vin Diesel while working as a bouncer at a nightclub called Tunnel in New York City. He also bounced at a bar called Mars where a lesser-known Moby used to spin.

When he was 3 he tried to join in on the show during a Barnum and Bailey's circus performance before his mom rescued him.

He once worked as a telemarketer selling light bulbs and, later, mechanics tools.

Late Paul Walker and Vin's Twin Brother

This is what his twin brother looks like.

He's a huge Dungeons and Dragons fan. So much so that he wrote the foreword to the book Thirty Years of Adventure: A celebration of Dungeons and Dragons and taught Judi Dench how to play.

As a teen he performed in instructional videos for breakdancing. He auditioned for the lead role of a cross-dresser in the movie Flawless but didn't get the part because he was too masculine. It went to Philip Seymour Hoffman instead. He also was originally offered the role of Daredevil in Daredevil, but that went to Ben Affleck.

He has his own production company called One Race Films and his own record label called RaceTrack Records. He voiced the Iron Giant in The Iron Giant.

He grew up in Greenwich Village, N.Y, in subsidized housing and has given back to the area where he was raised. He's now currently worth $95 million.

He was cast in Saving Private Ryan after Steven Spielberg was impressed by his talents in Multi-Facial, a movie Vin wrote, directed and produced.

In lieu of payment, he traded his cameo in The Fast And The Furious Tokyo Drift to get the rights to Riddick. He has no tattoos. Tattoos in XXX were fake (and named after his Dungeons and Dragons).

In Germany his movie The Pacifier is called Der Babynator.

His Facebook page is the 8th most liked page on Facebook. He's 46 years old. He can kind of sing and actually used to rap under his birth name, Mark Sinclair. His first name sounds like a nickname.
