Vin Diesel confirms that he will voice Groot in upcoming GotG movie

20130814-081018.jpgVin Diesel has confirmed to the NY Times that he will indeed be playing Groot in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

On the choice of role, Diesel said “I’m an actor, not everything has to be the most obvious choice. And sometimes, the best thing you can do — as far as Steven Spielberg and his advice — is to defy expectations. So if everybody thinks you’re going to go for this one thing and you flip it entirely and go for the strangest Marvel character, it’s interesting. And when something is interesting, it’s inspiring.”

He also responded to his social media ‘teases’ that seemed to suggest he might be playing Vision in the upcoming Age of Ultron movie, responding to claims that Marvel Studios may be mad at his misinformation, “The last thing they are is mad,” he says. “I’m pretty open, but I have been secretive about this. I went to Comic-Con and I got blasted while I was on the Hall H panel for ‘Riddick.’ Someone asked a Marvel question. I couldn’t say anything because of that secrecy.”

So, what do you think of the casting choice, bearing in mind Vin’s previous voiceover work on the Iron Giant was actually pretty damn good?
