GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Vin Diesel Confirms He Only Has ONE Line of Dialog

This isn't a big revelation, but "Groot" actor Vin Diesel has just confirmed via a Facebook video that the living tree doesn't have much to say in the movie. Watch the video and see Vin chat with fans, actor Kurt Russel and co-GOTG actor Djimon Hounsou before he spills that he only has one line in the movie.

By ComicBookMovie - Oct 15, 2013 01:10 PM EST

"My father taught me there are no small roles, only small actors. I only have one line in the movie, but that doesn't mean anything. I'm still going to make it the best possible thing I can."


The confession is near the end of the video at around the 3:00 mark. Our thanks to @MattK187 for the tip.



Peter Quill, a man of the ’80s, finds himself caught in the middle of a conflict spanning the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe attempting to earn his title of Star-Lord with a team of ex-cons that includes a genetically engineered raccoon (Rocket Raccoon), a sentient alien tree of royal descent (Groot), a human who died and came back a killing machine (Drax the Destroyer), and powerful assassin who vows revenge against her master (Gamora). Together they bring the fight to Ronan the Accuser for their own varied personal reasons, Nebula and her pirates, and their grandmaster, Thanos.

Cast: Benicio Del Toro, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana. Director: James Gunn. Written By: Chris McCoy, James Gunn, Nicole Perlman

@ AMAZINGSPIDERMAN47

"My name is Groot" is pretty much what the character only says anyway....seems Mavrel is sticking to the comics....

word1one - 10/15/2013, 1:33 PM
I think it's safe to say that "I am Groot" will be his one line...

So he's generally quiet throughout the movie, and when he finally says something, it's gonna count...right? That the route they're going for?

They should have had him say more than just that one phrase imo, you still could have had him often repeat "I am Groot" in addition to normal dialouge.

Is that the confirmed synopsis? Sounds awesome.

Still calling it as Thanos.

Marvel would never be stupid enough to only use Vin Diesel for one damn line.
CherryBomb
CherryBomb - 10/15/2013, 1:54 PM
This is hilarious.
He was going on about a huge role and he has one line.

Ah well, I'm glad they're not making Groot a chatter box.
I hope he gets another CBM role.

Really guys you cannot accept the fact that they want to use him for one line now?!?!?!

Maybe he will have another role setup in the future to play another character.

But he is pretty complex.

Can't wait to see the relationship between Groot and Rocket. This movie will rock!
