Vin Diesel: "I AM GROOT"...Maybe
Actor Vin Diesel might as well come out and quote the giant talking plant himself, "I AM GROOT!"
Or is he?
The 'Fast and Furious' and 'Riddick' star has continued to tease fans about his involvement in Marvel upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film. While some had thought the buff and gravely voiced actor may play the villain Thanos, all appearances point to Diesel joining with the good guys on Marvel's cosmic adventure.

For starters, while at Comic-Con to promote his forthcoming sci-fi sequel Riddick, the actor even said that some 'big news' would be forthcoming at the end of July. July has come and gone, and while there was no big news, we got a fairly massive hint about Diesel's role in 'Guardian's' over the weekend. Although the image has since been taken down, the actor posted on his Facebook page, a comic book image featuring Groot, a member of the Guardians that hails from the Floral Colossus species of aliens.
Following this fairly large and obvious hint, the web site Deadline managed to confirm that Diesel has been in talks to voice the walking, talking tree. Groot-minus any dialogue-was debuted in the footage shown at Comic-Con last month.
