Vin Diesel Auditions For Black Bolt By Showing Off His Silent Acting Skills

Vin Diesel is not satisfied with playing just one Marvel character. The "Fast & Furious" franchise lead lent his voice to Groot in "Guardians of the Galaxy" and now he's looking to perform a Marvel double dip by playing the company's most prominent silent character -- Black Bolt of the Inhumans. An Inhumans movie won't appear in theaters until 2019, but that hasn't stopped Diesel from campaigning hard for the role of Black Bolt.

The latest stop on his Black Bolt tour occurred at IGN, where the actor demonstrated some of his silent acting ability. "If I said one word, I would level all of London," reasoned Diesel.

He also opened up about the possibility of playing the Inhuman king.

"It would be... put it this way, when [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige started talking to me about... who would ever think? A voice for one thing and presence for another would be pretty genius -- it'd be pretty genius," said Diesel. "Whenever my father sends me an email, at the end of it he says 'stay human' -- and it's cool and beautiful, but what is he really trying to say? Is he trying to say I've been affected by Terrigen Mist? Does he want to cocoon me again?"

The Inhumans are already popping up on this season of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." on ABC, but it's likely that Marvel is saving the big guns (Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, etc.) for the big screen. "Inhumans" opens in theaters on July 12, 2019.
