To put it lightly, Vin Diesel would not appreciate being called a “bitch” in any forum. But to say that he “ain’t no bitch,” is in many ways a relative understatement. No matter what you have to say about the star of The Fast and the Furious, xXx and Knockaround Guys, he has had his fair share of badass roles.
And though he has done a few projects in the past few years that have been much different, including the abysmal Disney comedy The Pacifier and a somewhat critically acclaimed dramatic turn in Find Me Guilty, Diesel always knows to go back to the well. That said, he will be hitting your movie screens with a vengeance in Babylon A.D. on August 29th. Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, who previously brought us Gothika, A.D. will feature Diesel as a mercenary hired to escort a woman from Russia to China. And as these things go, there is more to her story.
As I mentioned, the film doesn’t hit until the end of the month, but it appears that Vin has already started laying down punches. That is, if you count this little video below, which was sent over to us by FSR reader Evan. Have a look, and a laugh, for yourself below.
