Vin Diesel Not as Unknown as Thought
Matthew Bass

After posting this article a few days ago, in which actor Vin Diesel stated in an interview that he wanted to play Aragorn in the LOTR trilogy, I received several e-mails with information about this actor. Here's what I got.

From James: He was Private Adrian Caparzo in "Saving Private Ryan", the voice of the Iron Giant in the movie of that name, and I guess he's in two films out right now: "The Boiler Room" and "Pitch Black."

From Jeremiah: Van Diesel was in such notable films as "Saving Private Ryan" and the upcoming "Pitch Black," which is a sci-fi flick.
