Vin Diesel back in the Sound Booth for Guardians of the Galaxy
Vin Diesel will voice Groot, an enormous sentient anthropomorphic tree known for having a vocabulary limited to only three words – ‘I am Groot.’

Perhaps not the most taxing voice-work the actor has ever undertaken, but the Guardians of the Galaxy star is noted for another animated character, of a similar vocabulary…

“Some of you may remember the character I voiced back in 1998…

"Last month I had the opportunity to voice a new character, on the Disney lot… and I was shocked to see the same sound engineer, Doc, who was there when Brad Bird was directing me 15 years earlier, as the Iron Giant.

"As artists we are susceptible to clocking omens... and this was a great sign."

There might still be some lingering rumours linking Diesel to the role of Thanos, the big bad of Marvel’s planned, Phase Three initiative. But Groot fans can definitely catch him (or his gravelly tones) when Guardians of the Galaxy releases on August 1st 2014.
