For all his tough-guy roles, sometimes it’s easy to forget how downright charming and relatable actor Vin Diesel is when he’s just being himself. Think about all his appearances on late-night talkshows, or the interviews when he starts waxing poetic about his D&D game(s) — not your typical action star on so many levels.
Vin Diesel is currently in production on the film adaptation of Valiant Comics character Bloodshot, which he’s starring in, and today he opened up a little bit about being a parent.
The video, posted to Diesel’s Instagram account, has the actor talking about understanding when parents have to make sacrifices for their children, in this particular case, missing a child’s birthday.
“Shout out to all you parents, who have ever had to miss your child’s birthday due to work, duty, or for any reason for that matter,” Diesel begins. “I know it sucks, and when they’re older, hopefully they’ll recognize the sacrifices and understand what their parents had to do.”
We know those feels, man. It never gets easier, no matter how old the offspring may be.
Dave Wilson is directing Bloodshot for Sony Pictures, and aside from Diesel, the cast is pretty interesting thus far. Toby Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island), Michael Sheen (who may be taking over for previously announced actor Guy Pierce), Talulah Riley (Westworld), Alex Hernandez (Hemlock Grove), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Johannes Haukur Johannesson (Game of Thrones), and Sam Heughan (Outlander) are all set to appear.
Bloodshot will debut on February 21st, 2020.
