Shane Diesel (born Saul Seward Armstrong) is an American pornographic actor.

Diesel moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Los Angeles, California at the age of 23 in pursuit of a career in bodybuilding. At the age of 28, he began posing solo for several magazines. After the events of 9/11, he received a huge paycut from his airline job and began his main venture into pornography.[2]

Diesel signed an exclusive performing contract with Digital Sin in 2005.[3] He eventually became known for his role as Blackzilla in several series produced by Hush Hush Entertainment. In January 2008, looking to pursue a career in directing, he retired from the role.[4]

In February 2008, Diesel signed an exclusive directing contract with Vengeance XXX, the ethnic line of New Sensations, to develop, star in and direct films. His directorial debut for the company was the film She Only Takes Diesel.[5]

Diesel and Ashlynn Brooke were jointly interviewed by AskMen in 2008 on how to audition for porn.[6][7]
