Vin Diesel has entertainment observers in awe with his energy and work ethic. His most recent movie, "Furious 7" has taken in $1.3 billion worldwide in its first 3 weeks in the theatres. For most actors, such sterling box office receipts would result in celebration and spending time on the talk show circuit talking about the movie but not this bald, muscular action-adventure star who has little to no resemblance of the average Hollywood star.
In the midst of the success of "Furious 7" he announced during an appearance at Cinema Con in Las Vegas on April 23 that "Furious 8", the next movie in the Fast and Furious franchise has been given the green light and he is already planning for the filming of the project.
In addition, the teaser for his next film, the action-fantasy movie "The Last Witch Hunter" is on the Internet and is creating much conversation among fans and entertainment observers about it potentially being his second blockbuster hit of the year.
The amount of work it takes to star, produce and promote one big budget movie is enormous and yet in 2015 Vin Diesel is promoting not one, not two but three films and has already started filming another movie, "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk", a comedy war-dramas scheduled for a 2016 release.
His schedule makes the use of the word 'busy' to describe his schedule a severe understatement and highlights one of the traits that is sometimes overlooked when the topic is Vin Diesel, his exceptional work ethic.
He does not seem to have the words relax or vacation in his vocabulary and as a result he has become an actor never far removed from the media spotlight.
Some entertainment observers never suspected that there would be an actor whose work ethic and popularity might match Hollywood star Tom Cruise but Vin Diesel is an actor who has reached this status and is worthy of being considered one of the hardest-working leading men in Hollywood, high praise but appropriate for this action-adventure star.
