Vin Diesel has released behind-the-scenes Guardians of the Galaxy footage. Watch it now.
It's no surprise to die hard GotG fans that Vin Diesel will only have one line for his role as Groot, the alien tree being with amazing powers and a limited vocabulary. To most folks in the universe it only seems like Groot is saying the same phrase over and over again, "I am Groot" (but Rocket Raccoon hears it differently).
So yes, we weren't terribly surprised when Vin Diesel posted this video on his facebook page under the title "Tree Form Down Time." In which he runs around on his mo-cap stilts and admits that he will only have one line in the whole productions (we assume it's "I AM GROOOOT!").
From the video:
My Father taught me there are no small roles, only small actors. I have one line in the movie, but that doesn’t mean anything. I’m still going to make it the best thing I possibly can. Even if it means taking Andy Serkis to a whole other level. Which is what we wanna do with our motion capture.
You can also see him palling around on set, we're glad they're bringing in Vin for some of the shoots, it will feel more authentic for the rest of the Guardians. Can't believe Diesel got away with posting this from Marvel, but we're happy to get a little sneak peek into their world.
