Vin Diesel plays a tree in Guardians of the Galaxy
How hard can it be to play a tree? Well, not that hard I hope and one of my favourite action stars has literally taken up the challenge.
Yep, I’m talking about Vin Diesel playing the role of Groot in the upcoming film adaptation of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s a far fall from his extra-terrestrial roles like Riddick but Groot does have some amazing powers.
The sentient tree-like creature can control trees, absorb wood as food, and even enhance and rebuild himself.
Guardians of the Galaxy has been announced for August and features an ensemble cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Benicio del Toro.
