-Spoiler alert-In the latest 3rd movie in the series (Riddick), Vin Diesel had a jackal/dog-like companion. He captured it when it was small but it escaped and joined him on his journey on the planet……and later, it was killed in front of his eyes, trying to protect him.
What I didn’t know was that he had a dog in real life, Roman, and he died just earlier this year. Also heard that he did a cameo in Tokyo Drift for $0 but in exchange, got the rights to Riddick.
Just goes to show, he’s pretty damn deep….
