No. 21: Vin Diesel — Top Action Movie Stars
I kind of feel like I like Vin Diesel more than anyone else I know, so ranking him in this list might be questionable to some. But with the voice, the physique and the brains to be a major leading man, I still like to hope that Diesel’s best days are ahead of him.
The ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise is obviously enormous and I would watch ‘Riddick’ films for the rest of my life contentedly. However, his ‘xXx’ franchise faltered, and his turn in the family friendly ‘The Pacifier’ felt like slumming. I’d just love to see Diesel cast in some ensemble roles and maybe a few tough-guy flicks that aren’t over-the-top action. Come on, ‘Iron Giant,' you can make the world love you again!
