Which Actor Expects Oscar Accolades for His Action Movie?

'I wouldn't be surprised if there is some Oscar talk around this.'" Did you guess that it was Vin Diesel talking about Fast Five? To be fair, he acknowledged with a chuckle that he might have a warped sense of its importance: "I don't know, maybe I'm just biting off what some guy from Channel 7 thought." [LAT]
