Vin Diesel Practices His Groot Walk for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY on the Set of FAST & FURIOUS 7

     October 15, 2013


During some down time on the set of James Wan’s Fast & Furious 7, Vin Diesel took advantage of his free time to get in some training for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  Diesel may be pretty imposing on screen, but he needs a bit of help in the height department in order to play the tree-like Groot.  He posted a fun behind-the-scenes video featuring his training, along with a few words on both films.  As a special bonus, Diesel’s co-star Djimon Hounsou, who will appear in both films, also makes a special appearance in the short video.  Hit the jump to check it out.  Fast & Furious 7 is due out July 11, 2014, and Guardians of the Galaxy will follow less than a month later on August 1, 2014. 

Check out the behind-the-scenes video below (via Facebook):

    did he say he just has one word in the movie? or was he speaking not literal terms. i didnt quite pick up

    • Bob

      Well three words…only one line. The character he is playing can only express whatever he wants to say with three words, “I am Groot”.

    I thought maybe it would be these:

    Wow… Just wow. I’m looking forward to Guardians, but this is not what I’d consider article-worthy.

    I thought Guardians already wrapped up principal photography. Why is he practicing the walk?
