Yep, that’s the galaxy’s surliest anti-hero Richard B. Riddick, as portrayed by this blog’s favourite action movie star, Sir Vin of Diesel, in a moment of on-set reflection whilst he shoots (and punches, and stabs) the new film.
Is it 2013 yet? No? Oh bugger.
If you head over to His Dieselness’ Facebook page (I know, I know, I don’t like this most ubiquitous of social media platforms, but what can you do when that’s where everything’s going down?), you can take a look at some more images from the third Riddick film and some of Vin’s actually charming and actorly digressions on filming, friends and this business we call show.
He comes across as some delightfully daffy combination of British theatrical knight, Sly Stallone-esque guy from the neighbourhood and that nerdy “D&D” player who somehow made it big and gets to do what he loves for a living. And you’ve got to love him for that.
