He’s at it Again: See Vin Diesel Prepare For Groot Role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

As most of you know by now, Vin Diesel is surely one of Hollywood‘s best and brightest promoters/advertisers/shameless pluggers/hype men.

Dude's fantastic!

Dude’s fantastic!

In that same vein, Diesel has recently been a little busy filming (and promoting) the upcoming film Fast and Furious 7; however, he also has Guardians of the Galaxy on his plate and is bent on not letting us forget that fact either.

In Diesel’s latest Facebook reveal, Diesel recorded a video of himself on walking (see: gracefully stumbling) around the Fast and Furious 7 set on some pretty tall as f*ck stilts. Since Diesel will be playing Groot, who is 7 ½ feet tall, in Guardians of the Galaxy, I completely understand his need for the stilts.

You can view the humorous video below:

Moving on, some of you may be wondering why Diesel will be in stilts. You figured Marvel would just be using Diesel’s voice, right?

That sh*t is so wrong.

You, sir/madam, are incorrect.

In actuality, both Diesel’s Groot and Bradley Cooper‘s Rocket Raccoon will be created using motion capture; so rest assured that the two actors will utilizing more than just their voices.

Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1, 2014.)
