Vin Diesel is one of us.

I read reports that Vin Diesel is a D&D fan. It is another thing to actually watch it. The exchange comes after the halfway point.



I liked "the something like that" reply when the host's talked about playing a goblin. I learned long ago that trying to explain in a causal conversation what really happens in a RPG game is often an exercise in frustration. "Something like that" has served me well in these instances.

Yeah, Vin comes off as a very approachable guy. Ideally, though, I'd like a coked-up Robin Williams circa 1982 at my table.

Nice interview. Vin looks a bit uncomfortable when the subject is broached, which is a pity. He loosens up a bit later on though.

Personally, I think no gamer should feel the least shred of shame about their pastime. We need more celebrity endorsements like Mr Diesel.

Have you seen his interview on Jimmy Kimmell ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwlalS7C7ZQ )- his face lights up when he talks about D&D
