Action star actor Vin Diesel, a gamer lover, recently posted on his Facebook page a video from four years ago of him and a friend who he hints at being Paul Walker, playing two 'toons' characters in the World of Warcraft game. Over the past two months Vin Diesel has posted old pictures and videos of himself and Paul Walker on his Facebook page which allows his 50 million followers to view them.
It is interesting that one of Hollywood's leading action star actors, Vin Diesel, is also one of Hollywood's alpha nerds as he is long-time gamer and admits to the fact that gaming has impacted his entire life. Vin Diesel grew up playing the game "Dungeons' & Dragons" and he became so engrossed in the game that he has the tattoo of one of the characters on his body. Even while working as a bouncer and preparing for his entry into movies, on his off days he would go and play "Dungeons & Dragons".
Currently, the gaming experiences he shared with his friend Paul Walker are helping him remember the great times they shared together. Vin Diesel has talked about his gaming fascination on Jimmy Kimmel Live and even mentioned in an interview how a buddy of his wrote a script about the co-creator of "Dungeons & Dragons", Gary Gygax and how the wife was interested in Vin Diesel playing the part of the co-creator.
Vin Diesel recently tried to minimize his gaming 'nerdiness" in interviews but he has become incredibly successful both due to his action roles in movies such as his Fast & the Furious franchise and the video games developed through his Tigon studios which was created to develop games based on the "Vin Diesel" brand. The initial project from Tigon studios, "Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay" has earned much critical acclaim for how it explains the world created in the Riddick movies.
Vin Diesel's gaming experiences are helping him remember a good friend and provides his fans with a little more insight into what activities, as unique as they are, this great action star enjoys.
