More than a decade after he created the futuristic antihero Riddick, the brawling don’t come as easily for Vin Diesel. “What’s inside of Riddick is so scary. Now that I have kids, when I watch the Riddick character, there is a part of me that feels guilty for having such a darkness in that character,” he says. Diesel fights off bounty hunters and alien predators in “Riddick” (opening Friday). “I look at what he’s doing and say, ‘That wasn’t cool. It’s only because I have kids now. Otherwise, I love a good kick-ass scene as much as the next guy.” — Cindy Pearlman. Big Picture News, Inc.
