Vin Diesel has revealed that he has one line in his role as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.
In a video posted on his Facebook page, Diesel is shown walking around the set of Fast and Furious 7 on stilts, ostensibly preparing for a part playing a 7-foot tree.
If you’d rather not watch the video, this is the quote you’re looking for:
“My father taught me there are no small roles, only small actors. I have one line in the movie, but that doesn’t mean anything. I’m still going to make it the best thing I possibly can. Even if it means taking Andy Serkis to a whole other level, which is what we wanna do with our motion capture.”
That one line, of course, is “I am Groot”, so let’s see what he does with it.
Guardians of the Galaxy is due for release August 1 2014.
