On the surface, Vin Diesel is muscly, sexy, and a badass! Most known for his acting accolades, after this week, we might just be able to add singer and dancer to his resume.
"Stay With Me" - Vin Diesel (Sam Smith Cover) [Video] 7.28.2014
Vin Diesel Breakdancing on Jimmy Fallon 7.30.2014
Earlier in the week, Diesel stopped by 95-106 Capital FM radio station in London for an interview, which turned into an unexpected karaoke session. Sam Smith's hit "Stay With Me" was the song of the hour, and even though Diesel looked slightly uncomfortable, he sang the number 1 hit confidently. In spite of his impressive range, changing from baritone tones to a squeaky falsetto, we can rest assured knowing Diesel won't be cast in any musical movies anytime soon. We here at Zumic give him props for rolling with the punches, but honestly, we don't need to hear it again. After finishing Diesel remarked, "I don't know how I did that!" Maybe it was his shades that allowed his Sasha Fierce to come out!
One of the great things to come out of this cover is Sam Smith's response to it all. In a tweet posted on July 30, Smith described how the unique rendition made him feel.
Vin diesel just covered Stay With Me. Surreal. Thanks man haha

Smith then went onto to explain in an interview with Capital Breakfast that a duet might be in order one day. Could be an interesting collaboration, but I think Smith was just being polite.
And just to add another element of sex-appeal to the already hunky Fast and the Furious star, last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Diesel was coerced into showing viewers some of his breakdancing skills. In the interview, Fallon takes a stroll down memory lane as Diesel discusses some of his earlier jobs in the industry. In a two-man breakdancing crew known as The Ultimate Two, Diesel would break at night leaving his days open to audition and pursue an acting career. Check out his killer moves in the player above.
