Vin Diesel to Voice Groot in Guardians of The Galaxy

Vin Diesel has caused quite the storm over the last month or so with his little hints towards a gig with Marvel. Rumors surrounding the eventual role of the star of the upcoming sci-fi film Riddick, bounced from the Vision to Thanos and even Rocket Raccoon. Unfortunately for those hoping he would snag one of those roles will be disappointed. But those who guess Rocket Raccoon were pretty close. Deadline reports that Vin Diesel still has a chance at being apart of The Guardian’s of The Galaxy crew, he’ll just be voicing Groot, the gigantic tree turned hero.


So far this looks like a legitimate partnership, Diesel even stoked the flames. He posted this photo to his Facebook.
