I just got off the phone with Diesel Washington, and he’s really excited about the work he’s doing for Suite 703 down in Florida. We didn’t have much time to talk and the reception was horrible, but here’s a little of what he had to report:
The Sword: What’s going on? You haven’t filmed in a while, so what made you want to come back now?
Diesel: It’s all part of my plan of attack. It’s been a year since I’ve shot, and now it’s time for me to stop talking about things and start doing things. It’s time to show people how I’ve improved. This is a big smack in the face to those people who say I’m not relevant.
Well now I call them my secret admirers. These people don’t even know me.
Just last week you learned that Erik Rhodes was one of them. Why do you think people are so obsessed with you?
A lot of reasons. First, they take the business way too seriously and think everything is about them. Now, I take branding seriously, and I take my performance seriously, but you can’t let every little thing get to you. The funny thing is these people who hate on me, like I said, they don’t know me. They’re attacking a fictional character that I’ve created, “Diesel,” so to watch them get all upset is just too funny. It’s a game to me!
Everything’s going well on the shoots? How many do you have lined up?
I’ve got three scenes with Suite 703; one for Hot Cocks Nice Jocks or Hot Jocks With Cocks, and one with Hard Working Men or Men Hard At Work. They’re all great. And the guys have been amazing. I shot with Steven Ponce and Hugo Alexander today, and tomorrow I’m working with Dylan McLovin–or Dylan Roberts now–and it’s going to be like nothing you’ve seen from me before. The scene will be all about passion; the softer side of Diesel.
Cool. Are you coming to the Cybersocket Awards, and do you have a date?
I was going to try and bring Nick Snider since we’ve made up, but I don’t think that’s going to work out. So no, I won’t be bringing a date, and I’m not bringing my mom.
Well, I’ll see you there! And good luck on the rest of your shoots.
