Manolo says, oddly the poor man’s Vin Diesel is Vin Diesel.
Manolo loves the shoes!
OMG, you are so right. I’ve been trying to put my finger on it for years now.
He can’t act for sh*t, but for some reason, I still dig him. *shrug*
BWAHAHAHAHA! The Manolo, he has put the finger squarely on the button once again!
I agree with JayKay. I like the guy. We have more than enough of everything to go around, so one more “regular guy makes good” is not a problem. No, he’s not a pretty boy. Yeah, he’s rough around the edges. So are a lot of us. And for some of us, clomping around like Vin looks better than camping around like Hasselhof.
Hah! La BellaDonna, she has the big weakness for the Vin Diesel, because he looks so much like the jiu jitsu boys she used to play with. La BellaDonna, she likes to watch him and pretend she has not broken too many parts to play any more.
Oh come on – this is such an *old photo*. He had a job (a good one too!) and fixed his teeth right around the time he made that Disney movie. Just Google him for images and you’ll see for yourself – he looks 500% better now.
I meant to say “nose job” :D
Huh. Well a chacun son gout, but the Vin Diesel has always seemed to me like the loud, vulgar, talentless braggart, and a perfect icon for the current era of the thug supremacy. Also, I am sorry Phyllis, but if you’ll click on the photo, you’ll see it’s from the Berlinale, which is only just over, i.e. the photo is brand new.
All I said was the guy looks different now, and if you look at other photos from that event and from his new movie it’s pretty obvious. Who knows where that video image came from – it wasn’t an actual phtograph of him – that footage could be years old. I merely pointed out that in the recent past he had a good nose job and fixed his teeth. As for his acting skill – I have no opinion on that truthfully – although my kids did like his Disney movie.
Look at the video image. Behind him, *in the video image*, is the banner of the Berlinale. It’s a video feed from the red carpet at the Festival — he stars in a film (“Find Me Guilty”) that premiered there in competition — being projected on a Diamond Vision screen or something of the sort, with the young ladies in the foreground. It’s a terrible angle, and poorly lit, so it’s a bit unfairly unflattering, but it is a very recent photo.
AskMom remembers when she too had the pash for the men with the rough edges, the interesting little ways of channelling their inner truck driver. Alas, reality intrudes. Those wishing to be known as members of civilization intuit the limits of chic unwashedness, and Vin is not in compliance. If you were allowed only a picture of your significant other as a job reference, a snapshot inferring your education, work habits and social skills, would Vin win the employment for you?
To this day, Vin’s best performance was in “The Iron Giant.” Looking at his picture, you can see why.
Everybody has to be such a critic. Vin Diesel who may have come from nowhere has worked hard to get to where he is, give him his due. Does every actor have to look like George Cloony, and come with a family pedigree? I happen to like Vin and I loved him in the “Chronicles of Riddick.” I loved the character Riddick so much I named my newest cat, who loves to wrestle all the time, Riddick. Vin Diesel characters can your worst nightmares, but he shows his tender side, too. I think he just gets better all the time!
