Mark Sinclair aka Vin received immense amounts of love and appreciation across the globe for his performance as Dominic Toretto in the Fast & Furious franchise. It’s one of the highest-grossing action franchises.



However, Vin Diesel debuted with Pitch Black, whose audition he had failed miserably. In an interview with Yahoo, the director David Twohy had talked about it as reported in Film, and said, “He read in the room and he wasn’t great, because that is not his gift — reading in a room, off a page.”

Shedding light on how Vin Diesel is better at getting into a character rather than reading off a page. However, when the makers of the film Pitch Black were considering other actors for the role, the director David Twohy fought for Vin. He said, “by the time we brought back our lead candidates, Vin was off-book and you could tell he was the right choice at that point.”

Well, we all know how it turned out when Vin Diesel played Richard B. Riddick in Pitch Black and we can’t think of anybody else other than him. However, when Vin failed at the audition miserably, the studio was trying to push Steven Seagal for the role. At that time, David Twohy had stood up and threatened to leave the set and gave Vin the chance to have his breakout movie.
