    Since this is a voice acting job, I'm still hoping that Marvel casts him as Black Bolt when they make an Inhumans movie.

    "I am GROOT" - and that's a wrap.

    Groot just doesn't say "I am Groot" in monotone each time. Diesel will have to record a different version for each time he speaks in the film with a different emotion

    He gets to be involved with a Marvel movie. Who wouldn't be excited?

    And not everyone can do it. Not as easy as it seems.

    easiest payday in his career.

    Go to the marvel studio , record for half an hour of him saying "I AM GROOT" in a few different tones. Voila ! He's a few thousand dollars richer and have his name attached to a big marvel movie project.

    I know right? Crazy with all the armchair judging going on here.

    On an unrelated note, I wish I could meet the guy. He's sex on a stick. Rawr. Plus he is kinda nerdy ;)

    It's funny, when I read Groot in the new Guardians of the Galaxy comics, Vin Diesel's voice is the first that comes to mind. He did a great job in the Iron Giant. I think this role couldn't be more perfect for him without involving high speed car chases.

    What's funny is that he would have been perfect for Drax as well.
