Vin Diesel, endangered?

I picked up the latest Entertainment Weekly to figure out why and how Vin Diesel has become such a big hit. (Yes, I saw Fast and Furious. I still didn’t get it.)

Here’s what they say:

“What’s going on,” explains one Hollywood agent, “is that there’s a shortage of action stars in Hollywood.”

How could Hollywood run out of one of its staples.

I figured this would be a good problem to put before popular culture experts not least because it cannot be (well) answered with the usual platitudes about Hollywood. You actually have to know something the industry and the moment in the industry.

Second, this is a genuine wobble in popular culture, something truly anomalous. It satisfies the anomaly test: “If someone had written an essay 10 years ago saying that Hollywood would someday run out of action stars, would anyone have taken it seriously?” The answer here has to be no.

So what happened? How and why fail to produce more action adventure stars?

    I think you all should give it up I am that wonderful man that he is does not have the time for the drool but if i may be wrong send an address this way he does really does seem to be the perfect man that is if there really is one. I would be happy with an E-mail just to get to know him a little better well in my dreams maybe its okay to dream though. Good luck to all the vin diesal love struck fans

  16. Czana

    I’ve been charmed by actor Vin Diesel and can see he has more to offer besides being a popular actor. Personally knowing him would be like a dream come true.

  17. Tyrique Williams

    RIDICULOUS. I would never imagine that people would act this way. Yes, i understand we all like and admire Mr. Diesel. But you guys are behaving insane. I too would like to meet the actor but i wouldn’t behave like you guys. You fail to remember he’s a celebrity. Hence it is very impedement that he keep his personal contact information on a low. I read all these comments and i was so intimidated. So if i can be,what about Vin Diesel? Come on guys. We gotta behave more responsible and take many things into consideration. Mr Diesel, I apologize on behalf of these people. And continue to do the great work that you are doing sir. Take care.

  18. Kim

    I really want Vin Diesel’s email address or to be put in his fan club mail, it would be greatly appreciated. T.Y.

    hi iam Gina from greece if any1 know the email of Vin Diesel please send me email,

  21. marie

    Do you people really think that Mr. Diesel will be impressed by someone who cannot spell? Let’s count all the times that there are mistakes, shall we? Get real, he has higher standards and if anyone gets his numbers or address and contacts him you will get a rude awakening. Get a real life please!

  22. anonymous

    YOU ARE ALL STUPID!!!!GET A LIFE!! half of you people probably don’t even know his real name!!! and hes not “mr. XXX” if you don’t know his name, your an idiot!! how can you people really expect to get his number when you don’t know his name?? its an insult to him and yourself! all of you are obsessive over someone who you’ll never get, if you really want to get ahold of him, write him!!! comment boards are for people who have no lives (and yes, i am referring to myself) GET A JOB!!KEEP YOURSELF OCCUPIED! stop obsessing over someone you’ll never have!!

    Hi! My name is Wesley, I am a 22 year old male and i live in namibia in a coastal town called swakopmund and yes it is the place where Brad and Angelina came to stay for the birth of Shilo Novel. I think you guys should give it up! Vin Diesel has his own life and his own friends. Sure I see him as an Idol, and I would give my left nut to meet him but it aint gonna happen and, I exept that! So give it a break! And if anybody has something to say about that then write to me and see my response. To Cale Humphrey! You go for it and ill see you on the red carpet in a few years cause you and me got the same dreams.

    Yes it seams that there is alot of people trying to get intouch with Vin Diesel and it seams that no one has a true address or phone number for him! So If you have found this information I would be very happy if you could provide it for me. I know a person who has cancer and would love to meet him before they passaway.
