Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

When people view me, they don't necessarily see a black man. For that reason, a film like Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967) or Driving Miss Daisy (1989) could never work with me in it. See more »

Trivia:

Credits the book "Feature Filmmaking at Used Car Prices" by Rick Schmidt as the one resource above all upon which he built his career. This book, according to Diesel, gave him the tools, knowledge, and most importantly, the inspiration to develop his short film Multi-Facial (1995), which he wrote, produced, directed and starred in.
