The bulk of Diesel’s net worth comes from appearing in and producing movies, mostly action films. He has appeared in “Saving Private Ryan”, the four “Chronicles of Riddick” films and two video games, the very profitable “Fast & Furious” films, “The Iron Giant”, “The Guardians of the Galaxy”, “The Pacifier”, and “xXx”. In 2006, Diesel starred in “Find Me Guilty”, a rare turn in a dramatic role that got him critical acclaim. He has served as a producer of the sequels in the “Riddick” and “Fast & Furious” series; he also executive produced “Hitman” that is based on the popular video game series about Agent 47.
He has also wrote, produced, starred and directed a short film called “Multi-Facial” and a dramatic film called “Strays” which did well enough to be selected to appear at the Sundance Festival in 1997. He also owns Racetrack Records, Tigon Studios, and One Race Films; through shrewd business dealings, Diesel and One Race were able to gain the rights to the Riddick character from Universal. All in exchange for doing a cameo in “Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift”.
He first got into acting at the age of seven after his brother, some of their friends, and he broke into a theater to vandalize it when they were stopped by Crystal Field, the artistic director. She offered to let them have roles in her next production, “Dinosaur Door”, in lieu of calling the police on them. They got $20, a copy of the script, and they had to show up everyday. After this show, he would move up to the Off-Off-Broadway circuit in a repertory company that his father used to run.
Diesel got a star of his very own on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2013. He was also nominated for a SAG award for best cast in a movie for “Saving Private Ryan”. He has been nominated for other awards for his work. These awards include People’s Choice Awards, Phoenix Film Critics Society, Black Reel Awards, Image Award, MTV Movie Award, CinemaCon Award, and Teen Choice. Most are for his work in the “Fast & Furious” films, the “Riddick” films and games or “xXx”. He was also nominated for a Grand Jury Prize for his work in the film “Strays” in 1997.
