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.

"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

"My father taught me there are no small roles, only small actors... so i did as many steroids as I could :P "
Amazing512 - 10/15/2013, 1:32 PM
I have a feeling we're going to see an awesome scene where the Guardians are getting their asses handed to them and out of nowhere. ..I AM GROOT!

@ 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...
TopCat89 - 10/15/2013, 1:33 PM
"I AM GROOT" *
Pheezmatic - 10/15/2013, 1:33 PM
Oh hell Yea! do dat shit Vinsel.
Bread - 10/15/2013, 1:34 PM
I didn't know he was doing the motion capture as well...
Highflyer - 10/15/2013, 1:34 PM
'I am groot' no doubt
DukeAcureds - 10/15/2013, 1:35 PM
I am groot. Groot. I am groot.
TheRedSkull - 10/15/2013, 1:36 PM
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?
Enphlieuwince - 10/15/2013, 1:36 PM
Big surprise? Not at all... Kill the hell outta that line, Vinnie!
DefcoN - 10/15/2013, 1:39 PM
As it should be. The team will understand him anyway.
Omarvls - 10/15/2013, 1:40 PM

jlabatman - 10/15/2013, 1:40 PM
He hasn't reached Ent status yet, to be able to say more than one line!
Highflyer - 10/15/2013, 1:40 PM
Vin rocks
breakUbatman - 10/15/2013, 1:42 PM
What a lovely, lovely voice
Excel - 10/15/2013, 1:44 PM

dougieisrollingthejays - 10/15/2013, 1:45 PM
Djimon Hounsou should have been cast for black panther :( but he is too old I suppose.
MattBracken - 10/15/2013, 1:46 PM
wonder how much he is getting paid
gambgel - 10/15/2013, 1:46 PM
this is a joke, right?

how on earth one of the 5 main characters only have ONE LINE?

was it that hard to give him at least 5 during the movie?
MrBatmor - 10/15/2013, 1:47 PM
Why is he doing motion capture??didn't gunn say that rr and groot are full cg...i think he is motion capturing for thanos...
TheWolverine08 - 10/15/2013, 1:48 PM
Yup, it's going to be "I AM GROOT!"
skullboy - 10/15/2013, 1:49 PM
joker laughing photo: The Laughing Facepalm Jokerlaughingfacepalm.jpg

Yup. This movie's gonna need luck on it's side.
Ocelot - 10/15/2013, 1:51 PM
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.
pintoman - 10/15/2013, 1:53 PM
Loves the attention doesn't he?
Ineedrevelation - 10/15/2013, 1:53 PM
Still calling it as Thanos.

Marvel would never be stupid enough to only use Vin Diesel for one damn line.
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.
WorstUserNameEver - 10/15/2013, 1:57 PM
Quelle surprise!
JoeMomma29 - 10/15/2013, 2:05 PM
HUH well that makes sense because that is all the lines he can handle, well according to Tosh!

sikwon - 10/15/2013, 2:08 PM
I agree, hes Thanos.
DanteSparda - 10/15/2013, 2:08 PM
@TheAmazingSpiderMan47

Hahahaha, that's a good one (your second post).

@skullboy

Of course, this wouldn't be a Marvel article without a DC fanboy ranting over it, thanks for passing by.

DukeAcureds - 10/15/2013, 2:10 PM
TheRedSkull@ I am Groot.
gambgel@ I am groot! Groot!!
Skullboy@ ...I am groot.
JoeMomma29 - 10/15/2013, 2:14 PM
LOL!

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.
JamesMan - 10/15/2013, 2:17 PM
Vin is such a charismatic mother[frick]er.
MegatronLP9 - 10/15/2013, 2:19 PM
Ahh I hate you fanboys, seriously..
DukeAcureds - 10/15/2013, 2:19 PM
MAC@ I am groot. :)
MrCBM56 - 10/15/2013, 2:20 PM
MAC

Not sure if serious or...:P

But he is pretty complex.

Can't wait to see the relationship between Groot and Rocket. This movie will rock!
bagadoosh - 10/15/2013, 2:21 PM
just love it when folks race to judgement when it's painfully obvious they have no idea what or who the damn comic character is in the first place . dummies !!! save your anger for when your right .
