Vin was raised alongside his twin brother Paul in New York City by their mother who was an astrologer, while the boys never met their biological father – Vin considers himself as a ‘person of color’ as his mother has told him he has connections with various cultures. He was nine years old when he appeared in his first stage play – “Dinosaur Door” – at Theater of the New City – Vin and his brother broke into the theatre, and when caught were given a choice – appear in the play or be taken away by the cops. He matriculated from high school in 1985, and then enrolled at Hunter University from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in creative writing in 1989.
In 1994, Vin wrote and directed his first short movie, “Multi-Facial” which is a semi-autobiographical film as it follows a multi-racial actor who can’t pass his auditions – it was shown at the Cannes Festival in 1995. He then wrote, directed and starred in the full-length film “Strays”, which competed at the Sundance Festival in 1997, while MTV turned the movie into a series. In the following year, Vin voiced the giant in the animated movie “The Iron Giant”.
He became famous all around the US after portraying the lead character,r Riddick in the science fiction movie “Pitch Black” in 2001, and in the same year he played Dominic Toretto, one of the lead characters in the street racing movie “The Fast and the Furious”.
In 2002, he starred as the eponymous character in the action thriller movie “XXX”, but later opted not to appear in the movies “2 Fast 2 Furious” and “XXX: State of the Union”, so that he could star in “The Chronicles of Riddick”, which was actually a failure.
He went on to star as Jack DiNorscio in the courtroom comedy crime movie “Find Me Guilty” released in 2006, and although Vin was praised for his performance, the movie lost around $11 million. He was invited to star in the movie “Hitman” in 2007, but eventually chose to serve as the film’s executive producer. The next movie he appeared in entitled “Babylon A. D.” was both a box office and a critical failure.
