From Shadow and Act - Multifacial

This was Vin Diesel's first acting performance, which he wrote and directed as well.  It makes me sad, that he really wanted to be taken seriously as an actor, and ended up an action star instead.  I know a couple of years ago he got good review in a dramatic role, but he seems to have been usurped by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the good-looking action star with an ambiguous ethnicity.

I can only imagine the things that I'll hear when I start auditioning.  I'm too dark to be a romantic lead, I don't talk "ghetto" enough, too wholesome looking to be a Black girl, blah, blah, blah...
