Since the original Fast and the Furious grossed $145 million, the big-screen careers of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker have followed an almost parallel (and often bumpy) path at the box office.

Vin Diesel
XXX (2002): $142.1 million*
Knockaround Guys (2002): $11.7 million
A Man Apart (2003): $26.7 million
Chronicles of Riddick (2004): $57.8 million
The Pacifier (2005): $113.1 million**
Find Me Guilty (2006): $1.2 million***
Babylon A.D. (2008): $22.5 million

Paul Walker
Joy Ride (2001): $22 million
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003): $127.2 million*
Timeline (2003): $19.5 million
Into the Blue (2005): $18.8 million
Eight Below (2006): $81.6 million**
Running Scared (2006): $6.9 million
Flags of Our Fathers (2006): $33.6 million***

* XXX marked the spot for a Diesel hit, while Walker scored with a Fast sequel.
** Both followed middling sci-fi thrillers with PG-rated Disney pics (and modest hits).
*** Both sought prestige directors: Sidney Lumet for Diesel (Guilty), Clint Eastwood for Walker (Flags).
