Vin Diesel is an Old School Gamer

I'm not a Vin Diesel fan (although he's quite good in Pitch Black if you haven't seen it), but I've been interested in the fact that he seems to be the only celebrity who at all talks about gaming as a positive thing.

I'm guessing he's an AD&D 1E guy from what he says here:


  1. I would agree with your assessment there, sir.

    I like the fact that Diesel fearlessly talks about gaming and doesn't bemoan it or use it for self-deprecating humor. I especially like the fact that he is not afraid to admit that he played the game intensely.

    Thanks for posting this.

  2. Heh...I have new found respect for Diesel. I wonder if he gets a thrill out of some of his own game-inspired films (and I wonder if he wishes he'd landed that role opposite Jeremy Irons in the first D&D movie).
