Vin Diesel fans have enjoyed a pretty diesel 2013. Among Diesel's accolades: His random cover of Rihanna's "Stay" went viral, he stars in the certain blockbuster "Fast and Furious 6," and even found time to resurrect Riddick for the aptly named sci-fi film "Riddick." To say nothing of plans for "Fast and Furious 7," which is set for release next summer.
To celebrate "Fast Six" (out on May 24), HuffPost Entertainment has compiled the best Diesel quotes from the "Furious" press tour for Justin Lin's new film. Ride or die and enjoy the wisdom of Big Vin below.
On his hobbies: "Maybe because I'm a Dungeons & Dragons head, my approach to everything is a little more thought-out." (via EW.com)
On his 40 million Facebook fans: "Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever. [Laughs]" (via EW.com)
On social media's influence: "If there was social media in the '50s, there probably would've been a sequel to 'On the Waterfront.' There would've been a sequel to 'Rebel Without a Cause.' We would've finally gotten the 'Gone With the Wind' answer. So many of these films would've continued if the audience was able to speak directly to the braintrust, to the core, to say: 'We have to have another one.' I think Hollywood, and the choices Hollywood has made, would've been radically different if Clark Gable had 40 million people on his Facebook page." (via EW.com)
On awards possibilities for "Fast Six": "When this film comes out, quite frankly, there's gonna be some real Oscar watch." (via EW.com)
Remembering the first "Fast and Furious" film: "When we first did this we were thinking we had the opportunity to do 'Rebel Without A Cause.'" (via Moviefone)
The best contact in his phone: "Bill Clinton." (via Moviefone)
The future of the "Fast & Furious" franchise: "I think the debate is whether it's 7, 8, 9 or 7, 8, 9, 10. I know, it doesn't even make sense." (via Moviefone)
His review of "Fast & Furious 6": "It's the best movie in the world and it's a love story and it's baller status." (via Moviefone)
