Vin Diesel to Play Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy?

Actor, Vin Diesel has seemingly confirmed his role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy after posting a picture of the character Groot on his Facebook page. Vin Diesel has long been rumored to be up for a part in the Marvel cinematic universe although if he is indeed to play Groot it may come as a surprise to some as, in the comics, the character, who is an alien tree-like creature, is only capable of saying the words ‘I am Groot’. When asked about the potential role by The LA Times Vin Diesel said:

As 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.
