Vin Diesel Too Muscular to Play Ferris Bueller, Says Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel is continuing his reign as the world's Vin Dieseliest human. And the cover story of this month's Men's Fitness magazine brings us more of his sage wisdom. Take it away, amazing Vin Diesel quotes!

On being typecast: "Being a physical presence will rule you out of a lot of roles. I couldn't have done Ferris Bueller's Day Off with that physical presence. But I like it as part of me; it's part of what I represent, and I think if Humphrey Bogart were around today he'd be a lot bigger."

On the industry: "Hollywood is more concerned about its male actors being in shape than its female actors."

On art: "There were scenes that were so dangerous that if the studio really knew I was doing them they'd have shut down production on Fast 6. There were days when I came home and looked at my kids and hugged them and thought, 'Is it enough that it's for the sake of art that I risk my life like that?'"

Well? Is it?
