Educational Background: attended Hunter College in New York for two years, majored in English in preparation for screenwriting; Vin used to be a bouncer at a club called "The Tunnel" (1018 Mars, New York, NY); was also a telemarketer at one point.

Vin's Idol: Mel Gibson, both for his Mad Max character and for his ability to make a movie like Braveheart
Vin's Fave Actor: Morgan Freeman, veteran star of such memorable flicks as Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption, and Amistad.
Vin's Vices: Hey, nobody's perfect, right?!? Apparently, Vin is a social smoker but he says he doesn't drink... Here's something interesting: during his stint as guest on The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart pressed Vin about whether he got his Iron Giant/bouncer/bedroom voice from a smoking habit; rumor has it that Vin evaded the questions because he didn't want to influence kids into thinking that it's cool to smoke; and the fans ring out "VIN, YOU'RE MY HERO"
Career: began acting at age 7 for the "Theater of the New City," run by his adoptive father; worked as a bouncer for 9 years while acting in off-off-off Broadway theatre until his big break with Multi-Facial at Cannes (which he wrote, directed, produced and starred in); the rest, as they say, is history...and its pretty much recorded here :)

I know El Diablo is pretty much finished and on it's way to theatres. Knockaround Guys has been finished for EONS and still hasn't made it into theatres (what's up with that? If anyone knows, let me know!).
