Vin Diesel gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Los Angeles, Aug 27 : Hollywood actor-filmmaker Vin Diesel, best known for starring in the "Fast and Furious" film franchise, has received the 2,504th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


"I never thought it would be here in public on a corner, but I guess in some strange way, 30 years ago I made my living by dancing on corners like this with crowds smaller than this," Xinhua quoted Diesel as saying at a ceremony held Monday in front of the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel on Hollywood Boulevard.

Diesel, 46, was joined by several of his friends, including "Fast and Furious" co-star Michelle Rodriguez.

A New York native, Diesel made his film debut in the 1990 drama "Awakenings".

Five years later, his independent short "Mult-Facial" drew the attention of "Saving Private Ryan" helmsman Steven Spielberg, who created the role of Pvt. Adian Carparzo, a rifleman, in the Oscar-winning drama for the actor.

Diesel also starred in a couple of films including "Boiler Room" (2000), "Pitch black" (2000), action thriller "xXx" (2002) and "Fast and Furious" series.

His next film "Riddick" is slated to hit theatres Sep 6. He will also reprise his role in "Fast and Furious 7" which will be released in July 2014.
